On occasion, some property owners will decide to wait to have a tree removed because of concerns over cost. If the tree is dead this may end up being an even more expensive decision. If you have found yourself in this situation, then I’m sure you can imagine the safety hazards this may pose for your property or even your family. Here are some of the factors that influence tree service costs…

Some things to factor in when determining tree removal or trimming costs are the difficulties of the project and hazard, or danger, level of the tree and its surroundings. A tree that is next to your street, farther away from your house is not going to be the same project as removing the exact same tree if it’s closer to the home and hangs over the roof of your house. In situations like these, the more difficult tree by the house will take much more care, time and expertise.

The same applies to a dead tree that you may be thinking about cutting down later in, say, a year or more. If that tree or its limbs are dead, they can pose a real threat when a wind or snow storm arrives. Additionally, some trees actually lose density as time goes on, making it even more difficult to make the climb when the time comes to remove the tree or the dead branches. If those limbs are dead AND overhanging the house, then it can pose more danger to the person providing the tree service as well as endangering your property. Climbing trees like these is no easy task. Especially considering the fact that multiple cuts with a chainsaw will typically have to be made on more difficult tree service jobs. This can be much more difficult to do correctly, especially while standing on a dead tree branch!
