There are various benefits to having trees near your home. They add value to your property in addition to providing shade and a beautiful view. Having mature trees surrounding your home can significantly increase its curb appeal, and if you plan on selling your home, it can make it more appealing to potential buyers. However, trees do not stay in place forever, and at some point, you may need to have one or two removed due to damage, disease, or old age. Here's what you should know when it comes to tree removal on your property.

When to Remove Them

The first thing that you need to know when it comes to the trees on your property is when removal is necessary. There are a variety of situations that may make tree removal a necessity. If your tree is infected with disease or showing other signs of damage, it's likely time for removal. Trees near your home can provide shade and lower your electric bills, but if they are too close, removal may be necessary. Trees near power lines or other structures may also require removal for safety reasons. 

How Much It Costs

The total cost of tree removal services will depend on the difficulty of the removal and also the height and circumference of the tree. Typically the larger and taller the tree, the more expensive the removal will be. If your tree is in a problematic location, removal may also cost more. Stump removal may be included in the price, or it may be an extra fee. On average, it will cost somewhere between $100 and $1,800 to have a tree removed. The average cost comes in at $700. Stump removal can add a few hundred to your total cost.

What You Can Do With the Trees

Once a tree has been taken down, you have a few different options to consider. In some cases, like with a diseased or rotten tree, you may want to have it hauled off. However, in other situations, you may want to use what is left. Trees can be turned into mulch or firewood. Log splitting services range between $35 and $50 per cord of wood and can create usable firewood. Having branches chipped into mulch will typically add $50 to $100 to the total tree removal cost.
