Dakota Turf’s Tree Removal
Dakota Turf's expert arborists want to help you make the best decisions for your business. To that end, we’ve put together some information on tree and stump removal costs. We hope this helps you make the right decisions for your commercial property.
Tree Removal Costs
Professional tree removal starts with adequate planning. In preparing an estimate for tree removal costs, we consider several factors to make sure the process is safe for all parties. These preparations are reflected in our estimates which also consider the following:
If your tree is located right near electrical wiring or a building, the removal cost will be greater because of the risks involved.
If the tree is too large for traditional tree removal techniques and requires a crane, cost will increase accordingly.
Type of Tree Stump
Hardwood trees, like oak, are sturdier and harder to fall. Because they’re usually large, they often cost more than weak trees. Weak or dead trees cost less since they’re easier to bring down.
Stump Removal Cost
After you remove a tree from your property, you’ll have to consider what to do about the tree stump. If you want to prevent new tree growth or need to make space for new landscaping, it’s a good idea to remove the tree stump right away.
Stump removal costs can vary greatly depending on the amount of time the process takes. On average, stump removal costs range between $300 and $900. Although there are ways to remove a tree stump on your own, it’s always best to trust a professional to make sure the job is done right. Here are some of the factors that affect tree stump removal costs:
Type of Tree Stump Removal
If you merely want the tree stump out of sight, we can grind it down below ground level and cover it with fresh lawn. This option is cheaper than digging out the entire root network, but it means you can’t plant a new tree in the same spot right away.
The stump removal process begins by preparing the soil around the stump. Our professionals remove rocks and other debris and then loosen the soil. Hard, dry soil is harder to loosen and makes the removal process more difficult.
The larger the stump, the more time it will take to grind it down. The higher the stump the more it will cost to remove from the ground. Most stump removal projects mark diameter as a leading factor in determining pricing.
The Age of the Tree
Depending on how much of the tree you want to remove, age might drive the price up or down. If you want to remove the entire stump (including the root system) the cost will increase for older trees with deep roots. If you’re grinding down the stump of an old—partially rotted—tree, the removal process will be easier and cheaper.
