The cost of tree trimming runs from $375 to $525, with an average of around $450, as of 2015, states Angie's List. The cost of trimming a large tree or very tall tree may be significantly more, particularly if the tree is beyond the reach of standard tree-trimming equipment.
If homeowners require additional services, more fees apply. For example, some companies may offer to cut up trimmed branches to make firewood, or they may offer on-site chipping of trimmed branches. Tree- and stump-removal services cost significantly more.
Some companies may provide free estimates for trimming and tree removal jobs. Homeowners should get quotes in writing before agreeing to hire any tree trimming service.
