Make Sure You’re Comparing Apples to Apples
If you are receiving multiple tree trimming service bids you may come across a quote that is greatly lower than the others. It’s tempting to automatically go with the cheaper company but that may be a mistake. Typically when one company comes in dramatically lower than others it means they are quoting you with a different service.
To most homeowners tree trimming is tree trimming but in the Arboriculture industry, there are more than 7 types of tree trimming services. Each of these types require a different amount of branches to be removed. So the companies with the more expensive quotes may be quoting you for an intensive all around maintenance tree trimming; whereas the cheaper company may be quoting you for a light touch up trimming.
Avoid vague estimates such as “Prune trees – $700.” Instead, ask your arborist what type of trimming they are quoting you for and have them explain what types of branches will be removed in this pruning.
The cost will differ depending on crown spread, accessibility, tree’s diameter at breast height (dbh), and maintenance history.
