These prices usually include the cutting of the palm tree down into a short stump. In some cases, they may also include the cutting up of the trunk into smaller sections, though you may have to pay extra for that.

Consider that some additional items can add to the total cost of your palm tree removal, including:

  • Haul Away Trunk – You could pay up to $250 more to have the trunk sections hauled away as well.
  • Mileage – There is usually a charge for travel and mileage when palm tree removal services have to come from outside of the immediate area.
  • Rope Down the Palm Tree – It will add significantly to the bill If the palm tree grows dangerously close to a building or other obstacle, it will need to be roped down in sections.
  • Stump Removal – You can expect to pay an additional $74 to $215 If you’d like the stump to be ground away.

Trying to remove or even cutting down a palm tree is dangerous for yourself and others and that is why despite the seemingly high costs, it really is worth it to have this job done by a professional arborist or contractor. Even trimming a palm tree can be dangerous and runs the rick of the tree suffering and maybe dying due to incorrect trimming techniques.

Palm Removal Cost Factors

  • Size Of The Palm: It is not only the height but the girth of the palm tree to be removed that has an impact on the total cost. The larger the trunk, the more expensive it becomes to remove.
  • Accessibility And Location: Access to the tree is a major factor when determining the removal cost. This takes more manpower to remove the tree, especially if the tree is in the back and you have no vehicle access to the rear of the property. Conversely, a tree with a lot of space around it should be cheaper.
  • Number Of Trees: You can get additional value if you have a number of trees to remove. Contact us today for further details!
