Tony is a man of good character and very easy to work with. We would hire him again. Tony is a good communicator and very professional. He helped us decide which would be the best trees to keep and ones to remove. He also explained the safest time to prune the trees to prevent disease. He came on the day he said, did the job he said he would do and left no trace. He did a great job and we are very happy with how everything looks.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tree Removals

We’ve put together the answers to some of the most common questions we get.

Hiring the right tree care company is critical to ensuring the health and safety of your valuable trees. 

When evaluating a tree care company:

  • Verify that they have workers’ compensation and liability insurance. Ask for Certificates of Insurance, and call their insurance company to make sure the policy is current.
  • Check their reputation. Ask for references and check online ratings. 
  • Be sure you understand the work to be done and the cost to complete the work.
  • Verify that they have ISA Certified Arborists on staff, and ask to see their credentials. This designation ensures you that they understand the proper ways to assess, maintain, and when necessary- safely remove your trees.
  • It’s usually not necessary to  provide any money up front. Work should be paid upon satisfactory completion of the job.
  • Good tree work is not inexpensive. Be wary of any estimates that fall well below average.

Caring for your valuable trees is an ongoing process. Hiring a company that you can trust and develop a professional relationship with will ensure your trees get the best care possible. We’ve created a Free downloadable checklist to help you choose the right company. Click here for your Free copy.

While it might be tempting to remove your own tree to save money, the risk of injury and damage to your home and property greatly exceeds any potential savings.

Tree removal is an extremely dangerous activity. It is vitally important to have the proper equipment, training, and experience to safely remove a tree. We continually train to ensure the safety of our crews and your property. 

Tree removal costs vary greatly. It is absolutely necessary to visit the tree in question- and your property- before giving you a firm estimate. Be very wary of any company willing to give you a quote over the phone or any type of verbal agreement.

Here are a few things we consider when determining the price for a tree removal:

  • Size of tree (height and diameter).
  • Ease of access to the property.
  • Dangerous conditions (proximity to power lines, busy roads, etc.).
  • Stability of the tree (tree is dead, infested/diseased or heavily decayed).

There are some misconceptions about pricing, too. Removing a large tree doesn’t necessarily mean high costs. However, the opposite can be true with small trees in challenging situations.

Although every company has their own ways of pricing, our goal is to be fair to both you and our organization.

Often the decision to remove a tree is clear. When a tree is  dead, diseased, unstable, or presents a safety  hazard, it must be removed.

Sometimes, the decision to remove a tree is not so clear. Fortunately, our Certified Arborists have the training and experience to help. We’ll accurately assess the health of your tree, and give you honest advice about what is best for you and your tree.

We’ll let you know if there are alternatives to removing a tree, and tell you the likelihood of saving it.

Depending on what is causing the decline of your tree, it may represent a safety hazard. Trees that are unstable can fall or lose branches, damaging property and injuring people. 

If the decline of your tree is caused by disease or infestation, it is important to remove it before the condition can spread to surrounding trees.

Tree removals in the urban environment are very tricky. They are often sprawling over homes, driveways, and landscapes. Power lines and busy roads can also complicate removals. At Expert Tree, we have the proper equipment and training to get the job done. We’ll remove these trees safely, efficiently, and with minimal impact to the surrounding areas.

When trees are  removed, each cut releases a heavy piece of wood and sends it into motion. Often, these pieces cannot be allowed to fall to the ground. We use ropes and other specialty tools to manipulate and control pieces and lower them to the ground. Sometimes, the safest and most efficient way to get a tree down is with a crane. Rigging is set, and we smoothly lift out cut limbs and logs. Crane work requires a great deal of knowledge and experience. It is important to consider only the most qualified companies.

Once removed, we chip the tree or haul it away. We place plywood or matts to protect sensitive areas from equipment. To protect lawns and blacktop, we place pads under the out-riggers of larger trucks. Finally, we make sure we leave your property neat and clean. We rake the grass and blow off the hard surfaces. We repair any small ruts or divots. Attention to the smallest details makes a difficult tree removal successful.  

Absolutely! We have the equipment needed to quickly turn the stump into a pile of wood chips. We’ll thoroughly clean up the site and remove the chips. If you prefer, we can leave the chips behind for your use. Just let us know what you prefer.

At Expert Tree, we excel at Crane-Assisted Tree Removals. Using a crane offers many advantages over traditional tree removal.

  • More efficient – With fewer cuts and the ability to remove larger portions of a tree, removals that might have taken multiple days can be done in a few hours.
  • Increased Safety – There is less cutting, less lifting and carrying of wood, and greater safety for our crews.
  • Less impact to property – Heavy pieces of wood are gently ‘floated’ over your home, garage, and driveway. Less equipment hauling logs across your yard means less impact to your property.
  • Helps access trees in tight spots – We can access trees where space is tight, and remove trees where no ‘drop zone’ is available.

Not necessarily. The increased efficiency of using a crane greatly reduces the number of hours it takes to remove your tree. You may be surprised to learn that Crane-assisted removals can be surprisingly affordable.

I highly recommend Expert Tree – they are very professional and put customer service first.
They got right to work and finished cutting the trees very quickly. Everything was cleaned up–every twig and leaf, plus they hauled away extra brush from behind the garage. They left the yard cleaner than they found it!…I highly recommend Expert Tree…they are our “Tree Guys” now!

The team from Expert Tree Service did a great job.
From the initial visit to inspect the trees and provide a quote to the actual trimming and clean up, everyone involved was highly professional. Because of the location of the trees, they could not use a boom truck so the trimmers, Bennie and Manny, had to climb the trees using ropes from the ground. They were always careful in their work and asked me when they had questions about trimming certain limbs. It was amazing to watch them work 60 feet above the ground. Clean up was excellent. I would definitely use them again.
