How To Choose the Right Trenton Tree Service

Below, we highlight several important considerations for looking for a tree removal company. These include services, licensing, and more.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Make sure that your tree service provider holds insurance, such as professional liability, workers' compensation, and general liability insurance. Insurance serves to protect both workers and customers. Policies should mention tree work coverage specifically. Otherwise, you may be held responsible for any injuries or damage on your property.

Tree removal doesn't need any mandatory national certifications, but some companies employ certified arborists to conduct inspections. Companies aren't required to have an arborist on staff, but having one provides the added benefit of expert training in tree care, maintenance, and preservation. Arborists are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

You can request quotes from a handful of companies. This lets you compare aspects such as service fees, timelines, and included services to find the best deal.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend looking for a tree removal company that specializes in residential services. Residential tree service companies have fewer locally -mandated service restrictions than commercial companies, which are required to follow certain local ordinances.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) assesses for tree failure. A tree removal professional will visually inspect a tree to determine the risk of the tree or its branches breaking. A TRA is done to help minimize the risk of harm to workers and property.

Certified arborists are typically the ones to conduct TRAs. Sometimes these services are offered for free, while other times, there's an additional fee. Talk to your tree removal company and ensure you have a TRA completed before undertaking any work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Many tree removal companies can also remove stumps, either with specialized equipment or by hand. This is important because unattended stumps can decompose and attract pests and disease. Ask whether your tree removal company includes stump removal as a part of its services. It typically costs from $79 to $581, with the average Trenton homeowner paying about $370.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

On average, Arbor removal services cost around $740. Your final cost can range from $360-$1,585, and be influenced by factors such as tree health, project size, and tree size and type. Emergency services may cost about $1,902, and you'll pay more if a tree has a high failure risk or requires additional safety precautions, labor, or equipment. Tree removal companies might charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
