How much does tree removal cost?
The cost of tree removal relies on several factors, including:
You should be skeptical of tree removal quotes that seem too cheap compared to the market. Use this checklist to ensure you are not putting yourself at risk:
When is the best time to remove a tree?
In general, it is best to conduct tree removal in late fall, winter, or early spring when there are no leaves on the trees. This simply makes the job easier. Golden Valley Tree Service is happy to provide tree removal service any time of the year.
However, if you are looking to remove a diseased, infested, dying, or dead tree, do not wait until winter as it could fall at any moment.
Can I remove a tree myself?
It is highly recommended that you don’t remove a tree yourself, especially if you don’t have proper licensing and permits. Tree removal ranks as one of the most dangerous jobs in the U.S., and mistakes can be costly or result in injury. It is difficult to predict how a tree will fall when cut down; it could easily fall on your house. You will be liable for any damage or injury. Furthermore, removal of medium and large trees often requires heavy equipment like bucket trucks and cranes, especially if the tree needs to be cut and removed piece-by-piece. It is not worth the risk to remove a tree yourself.
Can tree removal damage my foundation?
If a tree whose roots have grown near your foundation is removed, its roots will decay, causing the surrounding earth to reposition. This may cause minor foundation issues. However, a far greater issue is the roots growing into your foundation, so removing these trees is the best course of action.
Does homeowner’s insurance cover tree removal?
Homeowner’s insurance usually does not cover preventative tree removal. However, removing dangerous trees is a responsible measure that will save you money and trouble in the future. Homeowner's insurance may cover tree removal after a storm if the fallen tree damaged a covered structure, such as the roof or front porch. However, if the tree was merely damaged but not completely fallen, or did not damage any property, removal may not be covered. Homeowners are responsible for removing any hazardous debris that does not pose a threat to a covered structure.
Do you provide cosmetic tree removal?
Yes, Golden Valley Tree Service is happy to remove trees to accommodate your home expansion or landscaping project, improve your view, or thin overcrowded trees. And of course, we will obtain the required permits to do so. We also remove and grind tree stumps.
