How Much Does it Cost to Remove a Tree?

Factors Considered When Determining the Cost of a Tree Removal:

Most factors, to some degree, are tied with how they affect the amount of time that is required to complete the tree removal process.

More dangerous jobs require more time to complete; Trees that are in a poor location will require more time to remove, and trees that are above homes or near other structures often involve rigging (lowering sections of wood with ropes, arborist blocks and pulleys) which will require more time to remove. Anything that takes more time, costs more money. Also equipment costs come into play. Often there no other options to safely remove a tree other than employing the use of a crane which will also add a significant cost to the project.

Douglas Fir Bark Beetle

Bark Beetle galleries

Over the last few seasons we have seen an explosion of both Douglas fir bark beetle and Spruce bark beetle in the southern interior. Widespread infests have caused mortality to many old veteran trees in the Columbia Valley. Spotting the signs of attack and removing infestested trees is the only option to reduce the population once it attacks standing trees. The other options we have for prevention is to apply MCH pheromone patches to help protect valuable trees and stands.

A short time after the Douglas-fir beetle attacks a tree it produces an antiaggregative pheromone (MCH) to regulate the number of attacks in a host tree. Synthetic formulations of MCH have proven very effective in preventing attack of the Douglas-fir beetle. The MCH is contained in small plastic dispensers deployed at regular intervals throughout the stand to be protected.
