Trees add so much value to an Atlanta commercial property. They clean the air by absorbing pollutants, provide oxygen, conserve energy, save water, help prevent soil erosion and cool the streets and city by up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
Properly maintained trees can live for many years. Even when trees develop problems, such as insects or diseases, trees can recover with adequate care.
However, sometimes severe tree challenges like rot, decay or insects and diseases that go untreated escalate to uncontrollable levels. That’s when your commercial tree can become a hazard to employees and visitors on your property. In this case, tree removal ensures safety.
How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree From My Commercial Property?
The range of cost to remove a tree is very wide. HighGrove Partners has removed trees for as little as $200 to upwards of $10,000. Why the big cost difference?
Cost Considerations For Tree And Stump Removal
There are many factors that influence the overall cost to remove a tree on a commercial property, including tree size, condition, location, stump removal and overall complexity of the job. Here, we’ll review the most common factors and explain how they impact cost.
It might go without saying, but the bigger the tree the more expensive it is to remove. A small, young tree can be removed quite easily and put in the back of a pickup truck for disposal. But larger trees require more people to do the job and a well-thought-out plan of attack where chunks of the tree are removed in a systematic order to avoid injury or damage.
A healthy tree is very strong, but a tree that is weakened is less sturdy. Some trees that have extensive deadwood are far less stable. This makes them unpredictable. In these cases, we can’t always use traditional climbing and rigging methods for removal. Large trees like this often require additional equipment, such as a crane, for proper removal.
Is the tree in a spot that is hard to get to? For instance, if it’s harder to get equipment like a wood chipper, bucket truck or crane near a large tree, then tree removal will require more labor and more time because the crew will have to remove parts of the tree and transport them to the chipper or truck.
Proximity To Buildings & Structures
Many times the reason a tree is removed is because it poses a safety hazard to nearby buildings or structures like fences, gazebos, patios or high-traffic areas. Because the incorrect elimination of one large branch could mean trouble near those areas, these trees require extra time and attention for safe removal. This includes safeguarding buildings and structures and taking special care to avoid damage. Also, trees near power lines or busy roads require additional attention and crew members to ensure safety.
Is Tree Stump Removal Necessary?
Tree stump removal is usually not included in the price of the tree removal, but we can provide a total price that includes stump removal if that is important to you. Tree stump removal requires different, specialized equipment, and larger, harder stumps may take more time to remove.
If you leave the stump alone, here are a few reasons it can end up being a liability on your landscape:
Stumps are a trip hazard.
They can detract from the surrounding beauty of your landscape.
They take up functional space.
- A decaying tree stump can attract insects and other pests.
