Tree transplanting may be an option if you are looking to remove a tree from your yard or move it to another spot on your property. It is easiest to relocate small trees, and can cost you between $300-$800. But, it can cost thousands to transplant large- or medium-sized trees. This service is not available to all tree removal companies. It requires different equipment from simple cutting.
Most tree removal can be done by professionals. They have the equipment and training necessary to properly fell and remove trees. Tree removal is not recommended for trees over 30 feet tall or within 10 feet from power lines. If you try to remove them yourself, you could be subject to fines, lawsuits or injuries.
With the appropriate safety equipment, however, you may be able to tackle the job yourself if your skills are good enough.
If you don't have professional training, we do not recommend that you attempt to take down trees greater than 10 feet in height. The higher the tree's size, the greater the chance of it falling on your head.
Tree trimming prices range anywhere from $75-$1,000 in the US. For the safety and health of residents and their property, tree trimming is usually done by professional arborists. Without the necessary know-how, it's not a good idea to try to trim your tree yourself. Tree trimming companies could charge an hourly price for their services. An hourly fee may differ for different trees due to differences in safety, equipment, and people power. Many tree services offer free estimates.
