How Much Does Brush-Chipping Cost?

By: albertaarb - October 13, 2016

When dealing with problem trees on your property, you want to make sure you find solid services at a reasonable price. For brush-chipping services, much of the costs tend to depend on issues such as the condition, size, location and other variables that increase the difficulty of the job.

Before you agree to the terms and conditions of some random contractor, you’ll want to read more about the costs and the services offered for brush-chipping and other types of tree-removal services.

What is Brush-Chipping?

Typically, one of the most efficient methods of removing a fallen tree involves the removal of brush and branches before feeding the thicker parts of the tree into a chipper. The area that surrounds the tree also has to be cleared to ensure the safety of the process.

The chipping machine turns the tree into a sort of wooden mulch, which may then be used in a variety of applications. Rather than have the wood on the tree rot and waste away, the material may be reused.

Prices For Brush-Chipping

Most arborists have a minimum charge when it comes to tree removal services and brush chipping. In fact, some include brush chipping as part of the package, while others end up charging extra for processing the dead wood. Minimum charges may range from $100-$150, depending on the arborists you choose.

If the tree happens to be located in an area far from downtown Calgary, you might end up having to pay more for the arborist to work on the tree and transport the materials to an appropriate destination. The height of the tree will definitely affect overall costs, with the largest ones costing $1,000 or more to deal with safely.

In terms of separate brush-chipping charges separate from tree removal, you’ll often pay according to how long it takes to process the tree. You can expect to pay at least $70 an hour for brush-chipping, with an additional charge for haulage.
