The tree removal price depends on a lot of factors. The most important factor that causes the price to vary greatly includes:
The type of tree you are removing, the trimming procedure, the location of the cutting, and the amount of work involved in tree trimming. The other factors that increase the tree removal costs include: Whether the tree is live dead or cut down. If the tree has to be removed due to an environmental problem like storm, fire, or dangerous tree falls, the cost goes up as well.
Tree cutting and trimming can be done manually or using automated devices. Most people opt for removing their trees manually because they are more affordable. However manual cutting of the trees can take longer time because it involves cutting the entire tree including the roots and the exposed branches and leaves. If you opt for cutting the trees using an automated device then the tree removal cost will be less.
Influence Tree Removal Cost
The size of the tree and the size of the area where you want to remove it also affect the tree removal cost. A tree that is more than thirty feet tall and has many limbs will require more trimming. You have to remove the excess limbs and the root ball to avoid causing damage to the surrounding areas. Tree removal companies use special equipment to cut down large trees. Some of the common equipment used include saws, knives, pruning shears, and a forklift.
The type of cutting procedures also play a huge role in determining the total tree removal cost. For example, if the tree has to be removed because of dead or dying branches, then the weight of the branch needs to be considered. The weight of the branch determines the cost of cutting it down. A common procedure that is followed in removing large branches is by breaking the branches into two or more pieces so that the cutting process can be easier. However, if the branch is not broken the total tree removal cost may be higher because you will need to purchase the right tools for the job.
The location of the tree also influences the total tree removal cost. Trees that grow near the houses or around the structures need more trimming than trees that are located at a distance. If the trimming is not proper then the house may be damaged. Trees that grow closer to the homes usually do not cause much damage as they usually grow quite tall and don’t require trimming very often. However, if the tree is located very far from the homes of the damage can be severe.
