A diseased tree can pose a safety and health hazard to you, your property, and everyone who enters your yard. While this tree may be cheaper because it is simpler to cut, it can be costly if it is in dangerous positions and could cause injury if it falls. For a quote on this situation, contact a tree removal company to schedule an inspection.
However, a tree that has actually been cut down, provided it isn't in an emergency, can be much more affordable than a dead tree. It is safer to leave a tree trunk on the ground than to hire a tree removal crew. You will pay an average of $100-$300 to have it removed.
