How Much Do Residential Tree Services Cost?

Published On: February 28th, 20222.8 min read

Trees are an important part of any residential property. Not only do they offer their beauty, but they can increase the overall value of your home.

With that being said, trees can also be a danger to your home and your family. A fallen tree can cause everything from a reduction in real estate value to housing repair fees — or worse, medical bills.

If a tree is too close to your property, you’ll want to reach out to tree services as soon as possible. That being said, how much do tree services cost? The last thing you want to do is break your bank account by trying to be proactive with your safety.

Luckily, there’s no need to fret! This article will show you what you need to know about tree services pricing. Read on to learn more!

How Much Do Tree Services Cost?

Like many other services, there isn’t a set price on residential tree services. Instead, there are multiple factors involved, including travel time, the size and amount of the trees, the overall complexity of the service, and the cleanup procedures.

Let’s look a bit more into these services to see how they factor into your total cost.

Travel Time

Most contractors factor their travel time into their pricing, and tree services don’t tend to be an exception. In general, the further the contractor has to travel the more it will cost to have them come through and service your trees. It’s always a wise move to search for a good local contractor in your area.

Size/Number of Trees

Another thing to keep in mind is the size of the trees, as well as how many you wish to have serviced. A bigger tree, or one with more branches, is sure to be harder to remove and will therefore cost more.

If you’re planning on removing multiple trees, you will also have to factor that into the equation. The more trees you need removed, the more you can expect to pay.

Complexity of Services

Is your tree situated right against your home? Are there a lot of branches hanging over the roof, or is the trunk leaning towards your estate? These factors could increase the complexity of providing the services you need, and that would influence the price.

Cleanup Procedures

Every tree service job requires a clean-up afterward to remove tree debris. You could opt to take care of the clean-up yourself and save money. However, if you can’t or don’t want to remove the debris, the contractors can find a way to do it for you. Just be sure to factor that into the total costs.

We had the A-team on our big job of 14+ trees (13 dead ash) in 3 different areas of our property, none of which were particularly easy to get to. With the added bonus of having drainage throughout the yard and avoiding the septic tank. I had 3 other companies come and look, one ghosted me!! 1 came and said no thank you, the third gave me a similar quote to Justin's, but you could tell he didn't want the job and wasn't as clear about how he'd go about it. Justin came in and was completely confident on how his team could get it done. And with a bucket truck - no cranes needed. (two of the above were talking cranes). Kyle, Kyle and Not Kyle (Cody) were great!! They worked hard and got it all done in 3 days!! They were nice, easy to talk to, piled the massive amount of trees in a great spot for the log truck. I thought taking down dead trees wouldn't open things up that much, but wow did it! I love how open and cleared out everything looks!! Lindsey and Kate were fabulous and accommodating talking about the cost of the job and log truck. And now I can add flowers and plants in the brighter area. FYI probably not going to plant trees... but some rhodies if I can keep the deer off them. (O: Thank you to ArborTech!! Cheers, until I can budget for the backyard.

The tree estimate and removal process had a quick turnaround (one week) and was coordinated around my schedule. Very accommodating. The team that showed up for the job was very professional and asked questions along the way to better meet my needs. Very affordable and highly recommend to anyone needing work done with trees!

I more than appreciate great workers...your crew is amazing! the physical ability, the mathematical knowledge even if innate, and the eye for art (cleaning up my white pines to beautiful trees) is a hard combo to find in someone. Your climber has all those skills and more. Your pricing was very reasonable! The care your crew took to ensure everything was clean and in better condition than when they came was more than apreciated by me. Even my neighbors said something! Thank you! I will call you again for future tree maintenance!

We enjoy working with the Arbortech team, from start to finish. Professional and respectful. We just had 8, 100 ft + trees removed and could not be happier with the results. We recommend Arbortech.
Arbortech is a great business to deal with. They did a big job quickly, professionally, and left our property in good condition. Lindsey, Justin, and their crews were all terrific. Highly recommend.

I needed to have a large Norway maple tree removed and wanted to get at least three estimates. Eric's tree service came out and gave me a somewhat reasonable quote of $3500, then a week later before I had gotten another estimate from a different company Eric's tree service texted me and said they'd be in the area the following week, I called them and they said they had to revisit the estimate. They came back out continued to tell me her personal problems and that my neighbor would have to move his trailer. She then sent me a new quote of $7231!!! I called Arbortech and Justin came over on the day scheduled and was my most reasonable quote! He also said my neighbor wouldn't need to move his trailer. Justin and his crew arrived on time and did a phenomenal job!! They are true professionals! They cleaned up everything. They had had to remove a fence panel and when they put it back it was more secure than it had been when it had been originally installed. Justin's quote was $4700 less than Eric's! This experience with Arbortech was purely positive I highly recommend this company! Thank you Justin, Lindsey and the rest of the crew, you guys rock!!

The service I received from everyone at Arbortech for a tree removal was absolutely wonderful. Any questions and concerns I had were answered and reassured. Justin and Lindsey were both so helpful and the value I paid for this service was outstanding. Super reasonable, and I would recommend Arbortech to anyone in need of any tree service. Super grateful and happy. If I could figure out how to add pictures to my review, I would. They did an incredible job with not just the tree removal itself, but also with a brush pile I also had taken care of. Again, highly recommend Arbortech for anyone who is in need of any type of tree service. Couldn’t be more pleased!
