While trees are usually a great addition to a property, sometimes they can be a hassle. Some types of trees go through messy flowering periods and scatter a lot of pollen. Others have nuts or cones that can fall and be a hazard to your property as well as annoying to clean up. Trees may also become ill or reach the end of their natural lifespans. In these cases, tree removal may be the right option. However, there are a few things that you should consider when removing trees.

The Impact On Your Property's Value

While some trees on your property may require a lot of maintenance and be difficult to clean up after during certain parts of the year, chances are they add value to your home. Mature trees that are healthy can increase the value of your home between 7 and 19 percent. Conversely, trees that are in bad shape or dying can decrease the value of your property. Keeping your trees, even if they are a nuisance, is often a good idea if they are healthy. If you need tree removal, you may want to talk to your arborist about planting new ones to replace the ones that have been removed.

The Cost

Another thing to consider when it comes to removing trees is the cost. Tree removal can get pricey, especially when dealing with larger trees. Small trees, 30 feet tall or less, cost on average between $125 and $437 to remove. Removing a medium size tree, between 30 and 60 feet tall, costs between $175 and $900 to remove. Removing a large tree, between 60 and 80 feet tall, will set you back $400 to $1,500 while an extra large tree over 80 feet costs between $962 and $1,400 to remove. Additional costs may also include stump removal. Hiring a professional is also a must when it comes to tree removal.

Rules And Regulations

When it comes to tree removal services, there is more than just the tree removal itself to consider. Your local government or homeowner's association may have certain rules and regulations in place when it comes to tree removal. Things can also get trick if part of your tree is over your neighbors property. You want to make sure that you are legally able to remove the trees in question before going through the tree removal process.    

There are a lot of benefits to having trees on your property. They provide shade, add interest to the landscape, and can even have a positive impact on your home's value. However, when trees become diseased or are a nuisance, you may want to consider removal. When removing trees, it's important to consider the impact it will have on the value of your property, the cost of removal, and whether or not there are any local rules or regulations that you need to follow.
