How Much do Tree Removal Services Cost in Edmonton?

By: albertaarb - October 14, 2013

It is clear that there is no clear way of determining the exact cost of tree removal services in Edmonton. Of course, this does not mean that you pay the tree removal company blindly. There are a number of factors you can use to estimate how much removing a tree from your property would cost.

Size of the Tree

The size of the tree influences its removal cost. A tall tree costs more than a short one, and a thick one also costs more than a thin one. For example, the cost of removing a tree that is 25 feet tall would not be similar to the cost of removing a tree that is 80 feet tall. Therefore, you should consider the size of the tree before calling tree removal services in Edmonton.

Condition of The Tree

The tree removal company will also be interested in the condition of the tree. A healthy tree that is still standing is charged differently from a fallen one. This is so because a fallen tree does not require as much effort to remove as a standing one.

Type of Tree

Some trees are tougher than others, so it makes sense that they should cost more to remove. A good example is Oak, which tends to be thick and strong, with lots of overhanging branches. Such a tree would cost more to remove than, say, an averagely sized palm tree.

Type of Service

The types of tree removal services in Edmonton also determine the overall cost. Do you want to remove a single branch or several branches? Do you want to cut down the tree? What about the stump? You may also want the tree company to clear out and destroy all the debris after cutting down the tree. The more services you include the higher the amount you will be charged.

Location of the Tree

The exact location of the tree you wish to be removed will also influence the cost of the service. A tree located near the house, or near any useful structures, costs more to remove. Such a tree can easily fall and damage any of the structures, so the workmen have to be extra careful.

Urgency

If you need your tree removed immediately, you are going to pay more than if you want the tree cut down at the convenience of the tree company. For example, a storm may uproot your tree and leave it leaning dangerously. In such a case, you cannot wait for normal working hours to have the tree removed; you just have to pay a premium price to have it removed. If you are located in a remote location, then you may also pay more to bring the tree specialists to your home or farm.
