The cost of tree removal by a qualified arborist can be on the expensive side and a little more than most can afford.
There are several ways you can save up to 50% off the price of tree services.
Below we will go through them.
Hire in the off season
Small businesses all have one thing in common. When they have a lot of work on they tend to charge more. When things are quiet, they reduce their prices to win more work.
One great way to reduce the cost of tree removal is to hire in the winter months.
With the same amount of arborist looking for work, and a reduction of 80% in workload, you are all but guaranteed a cheaper price.
Hire a gardener for smaller jobs
Tree services are best left jobs that are too big to handle by the local garden maintenance crew. But if you do have a hedging job or a tree pruning job for that matter that is smaller than a single story house (15 feet), I highly recommend you get a garden maintenance company to take care of it.
Why are they so much cheaper?
Tree service companies have minimum 80k+ in specialised heavy equipment to assist in the removal of large trees. They also have the extra overheads of public liability insurance and workers compensation insurance, which is a lot more expensive because of the line of work they are in.
One thing you can’t forget is they have studied for years to become a certified and licensed arborist capable of running a professional tree business and all of these overheads need to be added to the cost of removal.
Sell the firewood on eBay
Depending on the access to your property, it might be more cost effective to ask the tree services company to leave the firewood on site.
When you think about it, if there is no access for heavy equipment and they have to carry the tree piece by piece from you backyard to your front yard, then is will come close to doubling costs.
A cool way to get around this is as the arborist during the quoting process to just take away the branches and leave the logs cut into 12 inch long logs.
Ten you take a photo and post on eBay.
Not only will people pay good money for the firewood, they will also come and do the heavy lifting for free.
It’s really a win win!
