To maintain a beautiful yard, it is necessary to have your trees trimmed into the right shape. Trimming and pruning trees not only keeps your trees looking nice, but a dead limb or branch can actually pose a huge danger. A dead tree branch can weigh hundreds of pounds and cause serious damage to a home, a car, and unfortunately, large tree branches can sometimes behave unpredictably and even kill a person. Periodically it is necessary to remove branches or even entire dead trees. Doing so without the right equipment & training is highly dangerous.
Tree trimming is also performed to avert other hazards, A tree is constantly growing, but as its branches grow longer, they may approach electric lines, windows, or fences. Tree branches can arch too close to driveways or walkways, or butt out into the street, obscuring views of oncoming traffic.
You may realize you have a tree in need of trimming, but wonder what prices Agri Tree Expert's certified ISA arborist will charge to trim a tree in San Antonio. The cost to trim a tree, or remove the entire tree (or trees) depends on a variety of factors, such as:
How many trees need to be trimmed?
Are these small, medium, or very large trees?
Is this a dangerous tree removal that puts the tree trimming crew at risk?
Do you just need a few branches removed of one tree?
Do you require an entire tree lopping?
Is the tree alive or dead?
Is the tree to be trimmed located too close to a house or power lines (where special tree trimming equipment is needed to control the branches so they do not fall on the house?
One of the largest factors affecting the final cost of pruning tree branches is the size of the tree. Larger trees require us to bring special equipment to lop the larger, tall branches as well as to control them on descent. This is not a DIY project. We are sometimes called out to fix mistakes that could have easily been avoided, such as a heavy branch that fell on a home, damaging the roof and structure. The cost to repair the roof, smashed windows and porches, could have easily been avoided had the homeowners called a tree expert to professionally remove the tree branch, instead of trying to do it themselves, or hiring untrained, non-arborist laborers.
