How To Choose the Right Bellingham Tree Service

Factors like services and licensing are important considerations for choosing a tree removal company. We go over some key factors below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Tree service companies should have insurance, such as professional liability, workers' compensation, and general liability insurance. These policies protect both workers and customers. Policies should specifically mention tree work coverage, because otherwise you can be held responsible for any damage or injuries that occur on your property.

Tree removal doesn't require any mandatory national certifications. However, some companies have certified arborists on staff to perform inspections. Arborists learn proper preservation, maintenance, and care techniques to protect tree health. These specialists have earned voluntary certifications through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Having a certified arborist on staff is an added benefit, though not required.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

We recommend sourcing quotes from several companies to help determine the best deal. This allows you to compare things like timelines, included services, and service fees.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Verify that your tree removal company provides residential services. Residential tree service companies mainly service private homeowner properties. They have fewer restrictions than commercial tree service companies, which work on commercial property and therefore have to obey certain local ordinances.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) helps minimize the risk of harm to workers or property. During this process, your tree service professional will visually inspect a tree and its branches to determine the risk of breakage (called tree failure).

Talk to your tree removal company and make sure a TRA is completed before work begins. These assessments are typically conducted by certified arborists. Some companies include TRAs with services, while others charge an extra fee.

Ask About Stump Removal

Tree stump removal is important because neglected stumps can attract pests and disease. Ask if your tree removal company includes stump removal with its services. It will remove stumps either by hand or with specialized equipment. This service costs from $86 to $629, with the average Bellingham homeowner paying roughly $400.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal falls between $390 and $1,714, with an average cost of $800. Things like tree size and type, tree health, and project size may impact the total price. Emergency tree removal costs about $2,057, and you'll incur additional fees if a tree has a higher failure risk or requires additional safety precautions, labor, or equipment. A company may charge per acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
