How Much Does Tree Removal Service in Southwest Florida Cost?

There’s no definitive answer or formula to determine the average cost of tree removal services as the cost of tree removal varies widely based on several factors. The size of the tree, how many obstacles surround the tree, permits required, ease of access to the tree, and the condition of the tree all contribute to estimating the cost. Every tree is different and therefore every project is different. Tree West provides free estimates for tree removal services and we will never recommend a service you don’t really need.

Thinking About Removing a Tree Yourself? Think Again.

We understand the temptation to try and remove a tree yourself. And most of us have seen viral videos of hapless homeowners cutting down trees, only to see them fall in a direction they did not intend, most often towards their homes. Sometimes it’s carelessness, other times its well-intentioned people making costly mistakes. Either way, it’s wise to defer to a professional Arborist in order to avoid legal liability if an incident occurs. If you damage a neighbor’s property, or worse, injure someone, you are on the hook. A licensed and insured arborist like Tree West takes this potential burden away from you.

In addition to the skills unique to trained tree care professionals, there is specialized equipment that homeowners are not likely to have. Even if you had the skills to do the job, it would not make financial sense to buy or rent this equipment for one-time use. Call Tree West at 239-910-3256 and we will be happy to provide a free estimate and educate you on the safe and cost-effective techniques we employ with the tree removal services we offer.

These are many of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our customers. Please don’t hesitate to contact Tree West should you have any other questions that have not been addressed here.

How do I know when a tree should be removed?

It is difficult for an untrained eye to recognize when a tree must go. We suggest you call for one of our free estimates. Trees are removed for a variety of reasons including but not limited to: failing health, poor location, property development, too much maintenance required, improper pruning in the past, pests, threatening assets below, and much much more. Below are more indications it may be time to remove your tree.

  • Heaving soil at the base of the trunk and beneath the canopy
  • Decay-producing fungi, such as mushrooms, growing at the base of the trunk
  • Chipped or peeling bark and cracks in the trunk
  • Cavities in the trunk or large scaffold branches
  • Dead or hanging branches in the upper crown
  • Fine twigs without living buds near the ends of branches
What should I expect when having my tree removed?

The arborists and crew will come within an hour of their scheduled arrival. They will use ISA certified techniques to safely remove your tree. We can leave the wood in 16-18″ rounds for firewood or remove it. All the branches and other debris from the removal of the tree will be chipped and taken away. The crew will return at another time to grind the stump if that is being done. Your stump will be ground 12″ down and the grindings will be left. Any damages need to be reported to the main office ASAP and we will respond with scheduled repairs within 2 days of your call.

Do I need a permit to remove my tree?

Probably yes, most cities in our area have tree removal ordinances and many of these ordinances include trees anywhere on your property. You also, as part of the process, might be required to replant. If you have a commercial property the answer is a definite YES. We can help with permit acquisition and help you navigate your cites ordinances. Removing a tree without a permit could result in thousands of dollars of fines to the homeowner and/or the tree service.

What are my options for replanting my tree?

If you are planting a street tree, your city will have to approve the type and size of the tree planted, and you will need to get a permit. If you are looking for a tree for your yard, your options are endless. Take a look around you and take note of what you like and dislike about different trees. Armed with that information our arborists can suggest a tree that meets your needs and works in your intended location.

I hate my neighbor’s tree what can I do?

Not much. Your best bet is to work with your neighbor to come to a compromise. You could offer to pay half of the costs or get the opinion of an arborist in regard what should be done with the tree. What you should not do is go ahead and prune or remove the tree even if it is on your property. Legal or not (we are not lawyers) this could lead to an expensive legal battle. We can often help neighbors come to a compromise, but as a policy we do not do work where neighbors are in disagreement.

My neighbor’s tree is threatening my property what can I do?

If your neighbor’s tree is truly a threat we still recommend you try and work it out with them. There are in this case, a few things you can do to force their hand. One is bring the tree to the attention of the city by submitting an arborist report on the tree. In certain cases they can order it removed. You can also report the tree to their home owners’ insurance company or HOA and that may force them to have it taken care of. But we cannot stress enough, how much better things work out in the end, when you can come to an agreement with your neighbor.
