pruning dogwood tree
Depending on how long it takes to remove the stump and roots, the cost of removing them will be between $150 and $500. A stump grinder, which uses a hydraulic machine to remove the stump and some roots, typically costs $100-$400. A stump grinder can be rented from a hardware shop and you can remove the stump yourself. These machines are usually intended for stumps of small dimensions.
The most common method of removing stumps is to burn them, which can cost around $250 per stump, or use a chemical treatment that costs about $100.
Tree transplanting is a great option if you have a tree that you love but need to move it elsewhere on your property. Relocating small trees is the easiest and most cost-effective. They can be moved for as little as $300 to $800. The cost of transplanting large and medium-sized trees can run into the thousands. This service requires more equipment than simple cutting.
Tree removal should be left to professionals who have the right equipment and training to both remove the tree and cut it down. Trees over 30 feet in height or located within 10 feet of powerlines are not recommended for DIY projects. You could face fines, injury, or even lawsuits if the tree is removed in these circumstances.
If you are able to use a chainsaw safely and the tree is not in an open area you might consider doing the job yourself.
We don't recommend that you attempt to remove trees over 10 feet without professional training. The risk is greater for larger trees.
Tree trimming costs can range from $75 to $1,000 in the national average. A professional arborist is qualified to safely trim and prune trees. This is for the safety of both the tree's health and that of the homeowners. If you don't have the right knowledge, it is best to hire a professional arborist to help you with tree trimming. Tree trimming companies might charge an hourly fee for their services. For different trees, the hourly rate might be higher or lower depending on the safety measures, skill, equipment, or people power required to complete the job. Most tree services offer free estimates.
