How much does tree care service cost in Toronto?

Tree service prices in Toronto can vary based on several different factors, including: tree size, location, accessibility, and possible hazards.

Below we discuss in further detail pricing for tree removal, tree maintenance and arborist reports.

Hiring a professional tree care company is a worthwhile investment that will improve the health and vitality of your trees.

Tree Removal Cost

Tree removal prices range significantly based on the size/diameter, height, condition, and location of a tree. Small trees (up to 30’) with no major additional concerns (such as roots near plumbing or electrical lines) averages around $250–$600 for removal. Larger trees (that is, over 30’ tall) are far more dangerous to remove and require extra time, care, and attention to get the job done safely. As such, you can expect to pay around $1000-$2000 for these larger trees. Additional safety concerns, such as proximity to power lines or buildings, as well as stump and debris removal services will also increase the final tree removal cost.

Stump Grinding & Removal Cost

Stump grinding is an efficient and cost-effective way to remove unwanted tree stumps from your yard. The cost of stump grinding in Toronto is dependent upon the size of stump, but you can expect to pay a minimum of $150 for stump grinding and removal. As the size of the stump increases, the amount of time and type of equipment required will need to be adjusted. As such, the price will increase accordingly.

Emergency Tree Removal Cost

It is hard to give any sort of estimate for emergency tree removal in Toronto, as each situation is vastly different from the next. As the level of risk increases, so does the cost. However, Local Arborist is committed to providing emergency tree removal services that are as affordable as they are efficient.

Tree Trimming & Pruning Cost

The cost of tree trimming and pruning can vary greatly depending on the size of the tree requiring care. Small trees (less than 20 ft) usually average around $200-$450 for a trimming service. Trees upwards of 20-50 ft cost $450-$900 on average to trim, so long as there are not any severe hazards or exceptional steps required to get the job done. For trees that are larger than 50 ft tall, trimming and pruning services generally start around $900.

Cabling & Bracing Cost

The cost of establishing an adequate cabling and bracing system depends on the size of the tree, the complexity of the issue (i.e. major cracks, large cavities etc.), and the type of system required. You can generally expect to pay somewhere between $300 and $600 for the initial installation of quality structural support for your tree. It is important to keep in mind, though, that cabling and bracing systems require yearly maintenance. Additionally, it is recommended that cabling and bracing systems be inspected approximately every 7-10 years. For a more accurate estimate it is best to contact a qualified arborist to assess your specific situation. We offer free consultations for cabling and bracing services in Toronto.

Factors that Will Impact Final Cost for Tree Services

Hazards

Any tree care service, whether it is removal, pruning, or bracing/cabling, that involves additional hazards will inevitably be more expensive. If there are buildings or objects at risk of being damaged, it will take our tree care team extra time to ensure the project is completed in the safest and most effective manner. As the labour demands increase, so do the prices.

Utilities

When underground or overhead utilities are involved, extra precautions need to be taken. The additional safety measures and procedures to get the job done safely will directly impact the final cost for tree services.

Landscaping

At Local Arborist, we make every effort to preserve the beauty of your yard and landscaping. Items such as furniture or lawn ornaments are moved prior to work beginning. Sometimes, however, there are vulnerable or valuable landscaping fixtures (like pools, patio stones, or freshly laid sod) that can’t be moved. In these cases, we must take extra care to avoid damage and protect your property – this results in a higher bottom line.

Debris Removal

Trimming, pruning, or cutting down a tree is only half the work of tree care. Once the pieces of a tree have been carefully removed, there is significant clean up to take care of. Stump grinding, limb chipping, and the removal of debris is an extra expense that will be reflected on your estimate/invoice.

Location and Accessibility

The ease of access to the trees that require care also directly impact the cost of tree services. The harder a tree is to access, the more planning, time, and labour required to ensure the job is done as safely and efficiently as possible. For example, trees in obscure locations in your backyard will cost more for care than easy to reach trees in the front yard.
