Tree Removal Costs

The cost of removing a tree can vary significantly.

  • Did the tree fall and cause damage?
  • Does the tree have to be removed, but it’s still living?
  • If there is damage, is it to private property or public property?
  • If and how much will an insurance company pay to remove a tree off of a house?

Since 1997 we have handled over a thousand insurance claims were trees have fallen on houses. Within that time the one thing that continues to surface is the term “reasonable and customary charges.” Generally speaking, your insurance company will pay to remove the tree from your house, but they want to make sure that the price that they are paying is “reasonable and customary.”

These are some of the key factors in determining what your project will cost. Note: This will vary from tree to tree.

  • Will a crane be needed to complete the work?
  • How many man hours will be required?
  • Are there any special conditions such as building special access ramps or bridges to bring in heavy equipment?
  • Will the work be done under hazardous conditions? Or at night?
  • Will the work be done on the weekend requiring after-hour rates?
  • Will we have to reschedule previous jobs in order to get to your emergency job?

Each one of these issues, and many others, create varying costs that will all play into establishing pricing that “reasonable and customary”.
