Factors that Affect Tree Removal Costs

Tree Removal If you think about it, many trees were here before you and many will still be standing long after you’re gone. However, sometimes trees need to be cut down, for a myriad of reasons.

There is a cost to cut down trees, because cutting down trees is hard work and requires specific knowledge, expertise and equipment.

Big Foot Tree Service of New Jersey takes into account several factors when determining the price of tree cutting and removal services. Size does matter– how tall is the tree? Also, what condition is it in? It’s easier to cut down dying/dead trees than healthy/strong ones. How big of a diameter is the tree’s trunk? Where is the tree located? The more remote the area, the more the costs go up. Travel expenses may need to be added on to the bill depending on the tree’s location. These are all things that determine the cost of cutting down trees.

For those who want a couple tree limbs cut down so they don’t keep hitting the roof, the cost is usually under $100. Depending on where you live, you may opt to have the limbs tossed in the woods, used for a bonfire, or hauled away. There is also a service known as limb chipping, where the limbs get fed into a machine that cuts them into small chips, which can be used for mulch or ground cover.

Depending on your budget and needs/wants, sometimes tree stumps get left behind, or, for an additional charge, removed. Big Foot Tree Service can also split logs for you, if desired, so you can use the wood from a tree for firewood.

If you’ve ever wondered how much it costs to have a tree removed from your yard, the price range is typically between $150 and $1,500 depending, primarily, on the tree’s overall height and size.
