Frequently Asked Questions

Tree service encompasses various activities related to the care, maintenance, and removal of trees. Here are the top 10 most frequently asked questions about tree service:

Tree companies offer a wide range of services including tree trimming, pruning, removal, stump grinding, emergency storm damage cleanup, planting, and health assessments.

Signs that a tree may need to be removed include dead or dying branches, a leaning trunk, visible decay or fungi, root damage, and significant storm damage.

The cost varies based on the size, location, and condition of the tree, as well as any obstacles like power lines or nearby structures. On average, prices can range from $150 to $2,000.

Homeowners insurance typically covers tree removal if the tree has fallen due to a covered peril (like a storm) and caused damage. Routine maintenance or removal of healthy trees is usually not covered.

Tree trimming generally involves cutting back overgrown branches for aesthetic or safety reasons, while pruning focuses on removing dead or diseased branches to promote tree health.

The best time varies by tree species, but late winter to early spring is generally ideal for many trees, as it promotes healthy growth and minimizes stress.

Signs include discolored or misshapen leaves, dead branches, excessive leaf drop, fungi growth on the trunk or branches, and bark damage.

Permit requirements vary by location. Some municipalities require permits for tree removal, especially for large or protected species. Check local regulations.

Protect trees by establishing a root protection zone, avoiding heavy machinery near the base, and consulting with an arborist to ensure proper care and minimal damage.

Look for a company with certified arborists, proper insurance (liability and workers' compensation), good reviews, and transparent pricing. Membership in professional organizations like the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) is also a positive sign.
