Bottom line | Tree work is not cheap
However, we never price gouge our customers and treat every client fairly. In the tree service industry “standard” pricing is not practical, which is why we provide free estimates. There are many variables that affect price; some of them are tree size (height and width), tree location (relative to house, power lines, etc), the health of the tree, mobilization costs such as equipment required and distance to the job location, and naturally, risk.
Legitimate businesses in the tree industry incur high overhead costs. Homeowners should educate themselves on what legitimate business look like. Homeowners should ask for proof of general liability insurance (protects homeowners against property/equipment damage) and workers compensation certification (protects homeowners against personnel injury).
