We’re tree people, so there’s no need to beat around the bush. If you want to know how much our services cost, we’ll give you a straight answer: it depends.

There are hundreds of companies who want to prune or remove your trees, and we know our bid won’t be the cheapest bid in town. There are many reasons why “cheap” isn’t the best investment for your tree maintenance budget.

Factors to consider when hiring a tree service:

  1. Limit your legal and financial liability during a job
  2. Receive the highest quality work by a licensed and trained arborist
  3. Prevent accidents, property damage and bodily injury down the road
  4. Avoid overpaying for services you do need
  5. Avoid buying services you don’t need
  6. Do they have documented workers and are fully compliant with Washington State Workers Comp laws?
