tree trimmers/ landscape designers can you help me figure out if a quote I'm receiving is fare?
I need 2 trees removed (12 ft tall aprox), five trees trimmed in back (10 ft) and two trees trimmed in front (15 ft)
quote given of $900.00 I have no idea if this is good or bad.
Depends on where you live, thickness of the trunk, species, how much of the root system you want removed. Need to know more.
I’m not sure about the price, but I would tell you that the most important piece of advice that I can give you is to make sure that whoever trims your trees or gives you advice is a certified arborist. If you are willing to spend money to keep your trees in good shape, it’s best to spend the money on someone who has the training on what to prune and why to prune.
We had a terrible ice storm in IN about three years ago. We had 1 eighty yr old Chinese Elm removed and three Maples trimmed. It cost us about 900.00 I’d say your estimate is pretty close….maybe a bit high but with the gas prices going up….maybe not too bad. Be sure to keep the great mulch (if U R having it mulcheded /ground.) It’s much better than the stuff you buy. It will break down easier and be better for the trees and flower beds since there are no chemicals in it or paint/stain.
I assume your contractor is reputable as in someone recommended to you and has been in business for awhile. I also
assume he will clean up your yard and haul off everything for
this price. Assuming the above, the price is fair. I live in SouthTX and that is about what we would charge. I would be
real hesitant if someone else came in with a price a lot lower
than that – a very little bit lower is o.k.
