Tree Trimming

Tree Trimming FAQs

What if one of your workers gets hurt on my property?

Our workers are extremely skilled and careful. However, this is a valid concern as climbing trees and using power tools are inherently dangerous activities. We carry general liability insurance and workers compensation insurance, thus protecting you from any liability should an injury occur on your property. Should a worker get seriously hurt on your property, please call 911.

How long does it take to remove a tree?

This varies based on a number of factors including the tree’s size, location, and surrounding structures that must be protected. Expect anywhere from one to four hours for a single tree.

What do you charge to trim trees?

Just as trees come in all shapes and sizes, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. We offer free estimates and may even be able to give you a quote over the phone after asking you a series of questions about the tree.

Can I keep some of the logs for firewood?

Sure, simply let us know that you’d like to keep some of the logs for firewood and we will be happy to comply. Keep in mind that the wood will need to dry out before it is suitable for burning.

When is the best time for scheduling a tree removal?

This depends on the urgency. If a branch is hanging by a thread and threatening to damage adjacent property, then contact Houston Tree Trimmers right away and request emergency service. On the other hand, if your tree is simply looking a little shaggy, you have more time to consult with us about the best time. In addition, if you need to remove a tree as part of a construction project, it’s generally best to remove the tree before construction begins.

What do you do with the tree once you remove it?

This depends on the size and condition of the wood. Often, we chip smaller trees onsite though larger trunks are hauled away to recycling facilities.
