Additional cost factors

There are additional cost factors besides the height and the type of tree that will either increase or decrease the total cost of your project. Consider the following things:

The price will increase when:

  • The tree is tall;
  • Yard is difficult to access;
  • Presence of active power lines around the tree;
  • The crane is required to remove the tree;
  • If the tree is in a fragile condition;
  • If you are requesting emergency service.

The price will decrease when:

  • The tree is small;
  • If the service is off the season;
  • Yard has easy access;
  • If the crane or bucket truck is not necessary;
  • Already fallen tree that is not on structure.

Also, as additional cost factors, the price of the permits that might be required for tree removal in Georgia should be taken into account, and any materials or supplies that may be needed, as well as sales taxes. Additionally, general contractor fees could add between $90 to $110 to the tree removal project.

Useful tip

This should be a helpful tip for you if you plan to remove a tree or a few trees in Georgia State. Since the weather in Georgia can be pretty unpredictable schedule tree removal or any other tree service from May to October.

These months are the most-climate friendly in Georgia and will lessen the chances of things going wrong due to unexpected bad weather and eliminate the higher fees due to these services being more in demand in warmer months.
