“How much does it cost to take a tree down?” I am occasionally asked this question to which I reply with several of my own questions: “How much does it cost to build a house?” or “How much does a vehicle cost?” The answer is that it depends on the variables involved.
Our price is reflective of how much time and expense the job will consume. A tree that is located between two houses and surrounded by valuable shrubs is going to take longer to remove and, therefore, be more expensive than if the same tree was located in an open front yard.
The first law in removals is that there is no rewind in this business. We are a safety conscious company that works off a safety priority list. Safety for the crew of Freedom Tree Service tops the list, followed by safety for our clients property and neighboring properties and ends with equipment safety.
We remove a tree down to a few inches above ground level, unless otherwise directed from the homeowner. Some want the stump left higher for various reasons (bird bath, sun dial, potted plant, etc.). Homeowners often want stumps removed if they are surrounded by turf. Stump removal leaves the yard more attractive.
