How Much Does It Cost to Remove a Tree?

As much as we love trees and try to preserve them, sometimes they need to be removed. If not properly maintained, they can become hazardous and dangerous. Sometimes trees are planted in a bad spot and have outgrown the space. Whatever the reason is, we at Basin Family Tree Care can help. We will work with you to make the process as easy as possible. One of the biggest questions we get asked all the time is "how much does it cost"? That question can get complicated as there are a number of factors that determine the price. This is why many tree service companies offer free estimates, us included.

These are the factors we use to when determining the cost of a tree removal

- Time and crew required: Our main factor when determining a price is how long is the job going to take. We at Basin Family Tree Care have been removing trees for a long time and can accurately estimate how long a job will take. We have also calculated all our overhead costs and payroll costs to determine an hourly rate. We use this hourly rate in determining the cost of any job, not just removals.

- Location: If a tree is located in between a house and a garage with several service lines running through it and you just installed a new fence under the tree, then the removal is going to be more complicated and take more time. Therefore, it will cost more money.

- Equipment Needed: Here at Basin Family Tree Care, we have a variety of tools and equipment to help us tackle any job in a timely manner. Most of our equipment runs on gasoline, and as everyone knows gas prices are at an all-time high. Some jobs are big and require all the equipment and crew we have to get it done quickly and safely.

- Customer Specifications: Customer satisfaction is our #1 priority here at Basin Family Tree Care. We will work with you to make sure that the job is done to your liking. Customer specifications and request can add more time to the project; therefore, it can increase the price of the job.


Are they licensed, bonded, and insured? Tree removals can be extremely dangerous if done incorrectly. If you hire someone that is not properly licensed and insured, any property damage or injury that happens can be your financial responsibility. Always ask for proof of insurance before allowing someone to climb up your tree with a chainsaw, don't just take their word for it. Here at Basin Family Tree Care, we can provide a certificate of insurance made out to the customer upon request. You can also l

ook up any contractor's license on the Oregon Contractors Board website to make sure the company is in good standing. All contractors must have their CCB# visible to customers on any form of advertisement. You can look up a company here CCB Contractor Search ( Just enter their company name or CCB#.
