Questions About Our Tree Services

  • Q:Should I remove my tree?

    A:Tree removal is actually our last resort. Often, a certified arborist is able to save a tree that a property owner thought couldn’t be saved. However, there are times when tree removal is necessary. A tree should be removed when the tree is structurally unsound, which can create a safety risk for people and property.

  • Q:What is an arborist?

    A:An arborist is an expert with extensive training in the art and science of caring for trees. An arborist can help you with everything from choosing the right trees and plants for your property to treating diseases and helping you determine when to remove a dead tree. At Abundant Tree Care Services, you will work with an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certified arborist to help you make important decisions regarding the care of your trees.

  • Q:When should my trees be pruned?

    A:Tree pruning helps the health, well-being, and appearance of your trees. However, improper tree pruning can weaken the structure of the tree. The right timing, methods, and best practices for a tree depends on the species and the health of the tree. If your trees need some attention, we can advise you about pruning and ensure that your trees are pruned correctly for optimal growth and health.

  • Q:Why should I save my tree?

    A:When a tree is sick or damaged, you may wonder whether to attempt to save it or just have it removed. There are many benefits to saving your trees. Removing your trees and replacing them with smaller ones will reduce the amount of shade in your yard, which can be a problem since shade from trees helps to keep your home comfortable and reduce energy costs. In addition, trees offer benefits for reducing air pollution, absorbing storm water, reducing soil erosion, and providing a home for small local wildlife.

  • Q:How much does tree care cost?

    A:The average job costs about $1600, depending upon a variety of factors like estimated time, site access, equipment that will be needed. Many times, a job consists of several of our services. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect to pay for our different services: Tree Removal - tree removal can cost as little as $200 and as much as $5,000. Every once and a while tree removal can cost more than $10,000, but this is rare. Tree Pruning - The average cost to prune a tree is $650, per tree. This of course depends upon the size of the tree, the number of trees, and the scope of work.

Disease and health services - Most tree disease and health services cost on average $250-$300.
