What is the cost to remove a tree?
Cutting down and removing a tree is no easy task. We are literally involved in one of the top 3 most dangerous professions as we work full days suspended in the air, in inclement weather, with sharp objects such as chain saws, carrying heavy objects like tree limbs and branches. It’s not for the faint of heart, but that also doesn’t mean that it will cost you an arm and a leg.
Pricing for tree removal in Orland Park can vary by several factors, some of which are listed below:
Location – where on your property is your tree located? If it’s next to your home, windows, garage or other structures that can get damaged from the tree falling on top of it, the cost will likely be more than if it were located in an area where there is nothing else around it.
Height – the taller the tree, the more planning that will need to go into it. Not only that, but our crew will also have to adequately prep for the height.
Diameter – shorter trees with a wider diameter are priced more than taller trees with a thinner diameter. Wider diameters are tougher to work with. Wider diameters will also leave behind wider tree stumps, therefore, stump grinding will also cost more than grinding a tree with a thinner diameter.
Tree condition – a tree that is healthy and strong will take more man power to cut down and remove than one that is dying and decaying. Trees that are dying also tend to be lighter in weight as there is less density and matter.
On average, tree removal service in Orland Park runs approximately $1,500 per tree. This is a rough average, but the conditions above could certainly affect the price one way or another. If you’d like us to come out to your property, assess the work you need done and provide a free estimate, we are happy to schedule a time to come out. We do our very best to work around your schedule, but sometimes providing an estimate doesn’t even require your presence on the property. With your approval, we can go directly to the tree and evaluate the amount of work needed without you being there. Call us today!
Unlike trees that grow naturally in the wild, trees grown in our yards and communities need to be trimmed and maintained to stay both aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound. When it is time to trim a tree, either because of unbalanced growth or to remove diseased or dead matter, it is beneficial to have the help of experienced and trained experts. When tree biology is not understood, what should be meant as quick pruning can lead to irreversible damage to a tree which can significantly lessen its life span. Our arborists have years of knowledge in tree growth and health, and can determine the healthiest course of action for your pruning needs.
Realistically, there are not many reasons for trimming a tree. Each cut made to a tree will change its future growth, making it essential that each cut is carefully considered. The most common reasons for trimming include improving the shape of a tree, removing limbs that have died, and removing leaves and branches that have become diseased.
As well as understanding what situations warrant tree trimming, it is vital to do any trimming at the proper time. When you are dealing with dead or diseased limbs, it is generally ok to do this at any time. However, the best time, if possible, is to remove these limbs in the late winter or early spring right before growth spurts. This is because any new wounds heal faster during this time, lessening the risk of disease. Many tree pathogens take advantage of open cuts to trees and can cause devastating damage. Our arborists understand what pathogens your trees will be susceptible to and will avoid pruning during seasons these diseases are more active. If you're looking for tree trimming in the Orland Park area, give us a call. We'd be happy to provide our expertise and service!
Emergency Tree Removal Services
Sometimes you have time to plan for an impending tree removal, as you can see your tree slowly fading whether from age or disease. Other times, your tree is unexpectedly damaged by weather such as wind, sleet, rain, and hail that can destroy a tree. Sometimes, the damage is so significant that you need to get your tree service as soon as possible, before the damaged tree causes further damage to other property or bodily injury to people.
When you need tree removal service in Orland Park, tree trimming, or any other emergency services, it's critical that you turn to a company who carries proper licensing, insurance, has years of experience and the proper equipment to service you.
Taking down a tree can be tricky, and often can turn dangerous in an instant. Tree removal includes many unpredictable influences, such as a large unstable object, power tools, heights, and human error possibilities. As professionals who have a great deal of experience in these situations, we can use our knowledge and protective equipment to lessen the chances of accidents. If an accident does occur, our employees and customers can rest assured that our business is insured.
When trees are removed, you have to make decisions regarding the stump and root system that still exists. Some people choose to leave the stump. However, it can create issues such as regrowth, trip hazards, and just general unsightliness.
You may consider stump grinding if the remaining stump and root structure are not going to interfere with a structure. When a stump is ground, a large machine is brought in that will grind the existing stump to a level that is slightly below your soil, reducing its ability to be a trip hazard. The machine itself looks like a lawnmower, except it is equipped with a saw blade that slowly chops away at the stump. Some people put a layer of soil over the ground down stump so that they can plant grass on top of it, and some leave the stump as is.
While less economical, and a much larger task, there are times when complete stump removal is necessary. Removal includes digging out the stump and extracting as much of the root system as possible. Complete removal is often done when you are planning to build a structure over the location of the root. Complete removal is followed by the cavity being filled with either sand or topsoil. Regardless of which method is best for your property, whether grinding or removal, we have the training and tools to complete your job, as well as competitive prices.
Why our stump removal service in Orland Park is the way you should go
Do you have stumps on your property that were left behind from when a tree was there? Smaller tree stumps can be manageable, especially if it was a younger, less mature tree, but if it was an older tree with a much wider tree base then the stump that was left behind may be much too big.
Removing a stump isn’t quite the same work as removing a tree. Much of a stump is underground and therefore requires much more manual labor. Cutting down the trunk of a tree, on the other hand, can be a matter of taking a chainsaw to it and making the clean cut.
So then why should you call us to take care of your stumps? Well aside from the excellent service and work you’ll receive; we bring with us years of stump grinding and removal experience. If there are any recommendations or suggestions we can make, we’ll definitely pass it on to you. In addition, we come very well equipped with commercial grade equipment carrying blades and grinders that can do the job in a fraction of the time it would take several people to do hours of back-breaking work.
Not only that, but we believe that it’s a financially poor decision for you to do it on your own. By the time you rent out any equipment you may need and spend countless hours digging, swinging, pulling and lifting, it would have cost you more in time than it would have to hire out or crew. Opportunity cost is a real thing and we truly believe that your time is better spent elsewhere. If you’d like us to check out your stumps and provide an estimate on removing them, give us a call and we’ll provide a free estimate. We provide tree stump removal and grinding in Orland Park and all the surrounding south suburbs as well. We’re here for you!
There are times when the structural integrity of your trees is at risk. Fortunately, this is often a situation that can be remedied, and we have the experience and knowledge to help your Orland Park trees become healthy once again. Our knowledgeable staff is available to come and access your tree, and determine whether cabling or bracing will help your compromised tree.
The cables used are made of tensile steel, which is attached using bolts to our tree to help reduce movement or further splitting. Whether your tree has grown what is known as a "V Crotch", where the trunk does not grow as one solid trunk but instead in two weaker trunks, or it has been damaged by high winds or other wind conditions, cabling and bracing will hold the weak parts of your tree together in a way that will restrict movement. This is a tried and true method that will help your tree for years to come.
Like any other tree maintenance, your cabling and bracing are going to need to be a part of ongoing support. Our team of experts is trained to access the cabling in a scheduled care plan to ensure that your tree is continuing to grow appropriately or if it will require adjustments over the years. Because this is not a one size fits all solution for weak trees, and some cannot support the strain, it is best to seek the assistance of a trained professional before pursuing bracing. Call us today, and we will help you explore the options best for your tree situation.
Does Cabling Hurt A Tree?
Getting a qualified arborist who can cable your tree properly is the most important piece in saving your tree. When done properly, cabling is not only effective at correcting the structure of the tree, but it's also safe. Getting this job completed by someone who is unqualified can result in tree girdling where a permanent ring around the tree severs the bark and the vascular cambium (sometimes it goes deeper) causing it to ultimately die.
Sometimes trees can survive girdling but if the tree's structure has already been compromised, then girdling is just adding more wood to the fire. We notice that if a tree has less than half of the circumference that is girdled, it can usually survive the damage. Though girdling is a technique sometimes used on purpose, in this case it just adds another layer of complexity when you're trying to save your tree and improve its structural integrity. The point being, have someone who is qualified do your cabling and bracing.
