How much is a Tree Surgeon?
March 16, 2021

If you have a diseased or damaged tree in your garden or business grounds, you’ll be keen to have it removed as soon as possible. You may also have been tempted to do the work yourself. However, this will involve a certain degree of risk – especially if the tree itself is high up. Hiring a professional contractor to do the work is a much better course of action.

So, how much is a tree surgeon? Comparing local companies to find a competitive rate is a good starting point. But the price will depend on where your tree care company is based, their level of expertise, and the type of service you require.

The following factors can all influence price:

Location. Before asking ‘how much is a tree surgeon?’, check the area. If it proves hard to access, specialist equipment will be needed, and this will bump up the tree removal cost.
Service. Some tree care services cost more than others. tree removal, crown thinning, and overall crown reduction are examples of jobs that require a higher level of expertise – and this will be reflected in the price.
Time. The length of time it takes to complete a job will vary. More challenging projects will therefore cost more – but imagine how well spent your money will be if it saves your prized tree.
Disposal of arisings. How much is a tree surgeon going to charge to dispose of a felled tree or other debris? The price won’t necessarily be high, but it’s worth finding out when comparing tree cutting quotes.
Disease. If a tree is diseased, this can make things more complex for the tree surgeon – due to the safety risk posed. But it’s even more dangerous to leave it in situ.
