our-pricing

If one is new to having their tree pruned, it can be an eye opening experience- but not in a good way. Tree work is expensive due to it's safety issues, costly equipment use, and highly trained talent and endurance it takes to do the job right. So we offer a chart to help you better understand how we price the work. The final price is negotiated on site, where we can accurately assess the project. The following rates will not exceed the top figure listed in the table below. Free Estimates for Antelope, Roseville, Citrus Heights, and North Highland residents!

Because of the enormous variety of factors inherent in projects of this nature, we request a detailed email from you (including tree species, tree height, and age of tree if planted by you) in which you describe your project so we can determine if the project is appropriate for our small crew (but always feel free to just call with this information). Only then can we schedule a visit for an estimate.

Unfortunately, no checks can be accepted. Credit payments are processed via Intuit GoPayment.

NOTE: 

There is a $50 base fee if the project requires an arborist's feet to leave the ground.
We do not use spurs/gaffs.
