Tree Removal Services – Save Up To 43%
The cost of tree removal by a qualified arborist can be on the expensive side and a little more than most can afford.
There are several ways you can save up to 50% off the price of tree services. In some cases, you might even be able to get free tree removal.
Below we will go through them.
Hire in the off season
Small businesses all have one thing in common. When they have a lot of work on they tend to charge more. When things are quiet, they reduce their prices to win more work.
One great way to reduce the cost of tree removal quotes is to hire in the winter months.
With the same amount of arborist looking for work, and a reduction of 80% in workload, you are all but guaranteed a cheaper price.
Hire a gardener for smaller jobs
Large tree trimming and removal jobs are best left to local tree services. But if you have a tree that is smaller than a single-story house (15 feet), I highly recommend you get a garden maintenance company to take care of it.
Why are they so much cheaper?
Tree service companies have a minimum of 80k+ in specialized heavy equipment to assist in the removal of large trees. They also have the extra overheads of public liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance, which is a lot more expensive because of the line of work they are in.
One thing you can’t forget is that arborists can be expensive. They have studied for years to become a certified and licensed arborist capable of running a professional tree business and all of these overheads need to be added to the cost of removal.
Sell the firewood on eBay
Depending on the access to your property, it might be more cost-effective to ask the tree services company to leave the firewood on site.
When you think about it, if there is no access for heavy equipment and they have to carry the tree piece by piece from your backyard to your front yard, then it will come close to doubling costs.
Then you take a photo and post on eBay.
Not only will people pay good money for the firewood, but they will also come and do the heavy lifting for free.
It’s really a win-win!

Palm tree trimming is usually fairly cheap starting at $45 for smaller palms and going right up to $700 for huge date palms.
Saving on palm removal
Palm tree removal can be expensive. The reason being is palm trees is costly to dispose of. Palm trees are not like normal trees in that tree services can not turn them into woodchip for the garden. They are very acidic and need to be disposed of like a general waste. This costs money.
In our palm tree removal cost guide, we discuss ways to save up to 50% off the cost of palm tree removal by using a few simple tricks. It’s well worth your time to read if you are about to hire a company to remove your palm tree.
Tree Removal and the Law
If the tree is protected, but you still would like to remove it, you will need to get an arborist to inspect the tree and possibly give you an arborist report on the health and useful life expectancy of the tree. This can be used as a means to gain approval for tree removal.
It is worth mentioning that removal of any protected tree, especially Oak trees can result in heavy fines or even jail time.
Fallen and Emergency Tree Removal
To save money on this, I suggest calling state emergency services to make the tree save and get it off power lines or your home. This is a free service provided by the state.
After that, you can take your time using the above-mentioned strategies to get the job done.
Trimming and pruning
The difference in price can be large so be sure to follow each of the points above. It may also be worth using our tree removal cost calculator to calculate the cost of any work before getting an estimate, just so you know what ballpark price to expect.
Stump removal is pretty common to have done when a tree is removed. The stump refers to the bottom of the trunk that continues into the ground and connects to the root ball.
Stump removal costs between $75 and $500 depending on the size and location of the stump. A stump grinding machine is used to complete the task which removes the stump visible above ground.
