Tree Removal In Baytown, TX.
Here’s a guide in which you’ll find different examples of the costs involved in tree maintenance. Remember these are only guidelines and the final price is only given to you after an on-site assessment is done.
Basic Tree Cutting
This requires climbing the trunk and chopping it into more manageable pieces of timber. Typically, some limbs are roped-down so that they can be removed safely. Other times, a bucket lift is needed to perform the work and this too is usually included in your tree removal estimate.
Some contractors will haul the wood away at no extra charge, but this is not always the case. The arborist should explained this beforehand so you’re not left with logs you’re unable to dispose of yourself.
On average, you can expect to pay from $175 to $1,500 per tree, but the price of tree removal varies greatly and additional services may cost extra.
Services that may incur extra fees:
If hauling your limbs away is not included in the price, you can expect to pay about $75 and $250 for this service.
Once the tree is down, you’re left with its stump. And while some homeowners let it decay naturally, others want it gone right away.
Here are some commonly used methods:
The first involves drilling deep holes into the stump and pouring in chemicals that accelerate the decay process.
The second is stump grinding which grinds away at it with heavy machinery. This method is superficial, leaving the root system to decay underground.
The third is tree root removal. This is used when construction will take place near the downed tree. This keeps the roots from interfering with the new structure such as foundations, in-ground pools, wells and septic systems.
In the first two instances, you can expect to pay between $80 and $400 per stump. Complete root extraction can run from $400 to $1000+.
If your tree service provider has the equipment, they may offer to chip the wood for you for about $100 or more depending on the number of limbs and their size.
Log Splitting & Travel Expenses
If you have a wood-burning stove, fireplace or a fire pit, consider having your logs split into firewood. Not all companies offer this, but if they DO, you could be looking at an extra $80 to $200.
Travel costs are usually included in the overall price. However, if your property is in a very remote location, you could incur addition fees for travel.
