Drive around the Hamptons and the East End and you’ll see, amid the beauty of fall and the impending harvest season, reminders of the summer of Hurricane Irene—fallen trees. Uprooted trees. You get the picture. Maybe you’re even looking at it in your own yard.
Whether you’ve had trees felled by a storm, think you should have others taken down as a preventative measure or are considering removing trees as part of a landscaping project, the most common question that arises is cost. We went to Action Jackson Tree Service & Land Clearing for some expert insight.
The Question: How much should it cost to remove a tree from my property?
The Answer from Action Jackson: Each tree and every job is different. Many factors go into determining the cost of removing trees.
The first thing considered in pricing is access. Where are the trees located on the property? Can trucks reach the trees or must they be climbed? The size of the tree is another factor, as is the level of difficulty of the tree based on its location to other structures—is it over the roof, shed, fence. Are there wires involved? Do you want the wood cut to firewood size for your own personal use or hauled away? Do you want the stumps removed or grinded?
Another thing taken into consideration is the time it will take to clean up. Because of all of these factors, it’s necessary to have a personal estimate specific to your trees and property to accurately assess the true cost of your tree removal.
