How To Choose the Right Lima Tree Service

When you're considering a tree removal company, you may look at factors like services and licensing. We highlight some important considerations below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Tree service companies should have insurance to protect their customers and workers. Some examples of policies include professional liability, general liability, and workers' compensation insurance. The policies should specifically mention tree work coverage because otherwise, you might be responsible for any damage or injuries that occur on your property.

There are no mandatory national certification for tree removal. However, some companies have certified arborists on staff to perform inspections. Arborists learn proper maintenance, care, and preservation techniques to protect the tree's health. These specialists receive voluntary certifications through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Although having a certified arborist is not a requirement, it's an added benefit.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

You should solicit quotes from a handful of companies to find the best deal. This lets you compare aspects of each quote like the timelines, included services, and service fees.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend hiring a tree removal company that specializes in residential services. Residential tree companies have fewer locally -mandated service restrictions compared to commercial companies, which must follow certain local ordinances.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) involves visually inspecting a tree to determine the risk of the tree or its branches breaking. This is called tree failure. Evaluating tree failure before beginning work helps protect both tree service workers and your property.

Some companies charge an additional fee for a TRA, while others include them free with services. Certified arborists will usually conduct these assessments. Contact your tree removal company and ensure an assessment is completed before work starts.

Ask About Stump Removal

Often, a tree removal company will include stump removal with its service. Removing stumps is important because stumps left unattended will rot and may attract disease or pests. A professional tree removal company will remove your stump either by hand or using specialized equipment. This service costs from $69 to $508, with the typical Lima homeowner paying roughly $324.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal ranges from $315-$1,387, averaging of $647. Factors such as tree size and type, tree health, and project size can affect the total price. Emergency tree removal costs roughly $1,664, and you'll incur additional fees if a tree has a higher failure risk or requires additional safety precautions, labor, or equipment. Companies may charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
