Add on Tree Service Costs

Four Services Will Cost You Extra When You Get A Tree Removed

When you order a tree to be removed from your garden, one can often assume that all the services are included and when there finished you completely finished with the project and no need to go back on anything job is done and complete.

This is a wrong assumption and not all services are part of the initial tree removal service, here we talk you through the included services and whats not included and expect to pay additional charges for these to be added on to you tree removal.

What’s usually included in the main service is getting the tree cut down and limbs mulched up so they can be taken away.

What Can You Expect to pay Extra for:

  1. Stump Removal – when a tree is removed the stump of the tree can often be a later thought, I guess when a tree needs to be cut down, the offending stump is less of a concern however after a time has passed, these stumps can be annoying for a garden to look at every day as they gradually rot. Stump grinding and stump removal are an extra service that is added on and an extra cost that is not part of the initial estimate. You can expect to pay up to $200 to get it removed depending on its size and conditions.
  2. Limb Mulching may or may not be included and you may need to check with your provider if its part of the estimate or not, expect to pay where necessary up to $100 for mulching depending on the size of tree.
  3. Tree Trunk Removal – Trunk removal may be included in your estimate but don’t take this for granted. Often if you are looking for a low quote or estimate, it may not be included and seen as an extra add on cost. Some tree service providers do include this also so again check with the provider
  4. Firewood – Breaking up or chopping wood up for firewood is an added on cost in almost all cases, the additional chopping along with the cutting up of the trunk and limbs into manageable sizes is time and also it requires the company to bring along another machine pushing up the costs for them so this gets passed on to you.
