Paying for Tree Removal

There is a very good reason why tree removal is not cheap. Not only is the job very dangerous since contractors must climb high trees while also coordinating the use of high-tech, heavy equipment, tree removal professionals must also implement loads of labor removing and hauling heavy pieces of tree debris. For these reasons and more, you can expect removal to be a bit of the cost. However, this does not mean you should ever overpay for tree removal, nor does it mean that you can’t afford when the time comes.

The most common factors used to determine the cost of troop of the project includes the size of the tree, the condition of tree, the location of the tree, the difficulty of the project overall, and even the species of the tree. On average, tree removal costs anywhere between $200 and $1,500 per tree. But again, these costs vary depending on the above mentioned factors and more.

Here are some average costs you can expect for certain species of tree:

🌳 Oak Trees: Like pine trees, Oak trees also grow to great heights. The average oak tree at full maturity can reach heights up to 60 feet or more. On top of height, oak trees are strong and durable, which also makes them heavier and harder. For these reasons, you can expect tree removal to cost around the same as pine tree removal.

🌲 Pine Trees: Because the average height of a pine tree is between 40 and 60 feet high, some as high as 80 feet at full maturity, they are typically more costly to remove. You can expect the average cost of punch removal to fall between $700 and $1,500 per tree, give or take.

🌳 Ash Trees: ashtrays are unique because they are quite vulnerable to several different types of pest infestations, namely – borers and similar wood boring beetles. For this reason, they can sometimes be complicated to take down, and even more difficult to dispose of since their infestations can spread quickly from tree to tree. For this reason, ash tree removal might cost little more than standard tree removal, falling anywhere between $500 and $1,000 per tree.

What is Tree Deep Liquid Root Fertilizing?

For property owners that have multiple newly-planted, young, or sickly trees throughout their landscape, an arborist might suggest a process known as deep liquid root fertilization. In the tree care world, many people are wary about the effects of such fertilization. Does it really work? Do trees require fertilizer? And is the best method for this type of tree fertilization?

Deep Root Fertilization for Trees

Deep liquid root fertilization is a process that involves fertilizing the tree roots deep down inside the soil, rather than from the surface. It is generally accomplished by inserting a moderately-sized pipe 8 to 12 inches into the soil, just above the tree’s root system. And then using some form of air or water pressure, a liquid tree fertilizer is squirted down through the pipe, and directly onto the tree roots.  This process sounds simple, but there are several factors involved that require the specialized training and equipment of a licensed tree care technician.

However, according to the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), the process of deep liquid root feeding is non-effective and unnecessary.  They state that tree roots are generally located in the top 8 inches of soil, and fibrous enough to absorb sufficient amounts of water and nutrients to thrive. So inserting fertilizer deep into the ground is not needed to adequately reach the root system of a tree. The peculiar part is, many ISA-certified arborists sell this service. We wonder why.

Professional Tree Services

You don’t need the specialized, over-priced services of a licensed arborist to professionally care for your landscaping trees. An arborist is really only necessary if you have diseased or insect infested trees that require professional identification, diagnoses, and treatment. In almost all cases, a trained and experienced tree service technician is the perfect solution for affordable, quality tree care you can trust. Be sure they are licensed, and retain years of experience in the industry. With previous happy clients, you will know they should be a trustworthy choice for tree service.
