How Much Does Tree Service in Wichita Kansas cost?
I have read many sites trying to explain the cost of tree service, tree removal or tree trimming. All of the websites available are obviously written by A web developer or journalist who doesn’t know anything about what actually goes into pruning or removing a tree. With this article, I will try to help explain the cost of tree trimming, tree removal, land clearing and stump grinding. Prices will vary from state to state although, these prices can help you understand what to expect when hiring a tree service in Wichita Kansas or the surrounding area.
Let’s start with stump grinding, the easiest to explain because the price is normally about the same for all stumps. Wichita Tree Service charges a flat rate of $5 per inch for stump grinding so if you have a stump with a diameter of 20inches the price will be $100. We have a minimum charge of $100 for smaller stumps this covers the cost of drive time. I know of some companies in town with a $200-$400 minimum. For your average stump, you will be looking at $100-$200 when using Wichita Tree Service. This price will be lower if we also remove your tree. The price might be higher if your stump is in an extremely hard to reach area.
When estimating tree removal cost we will have to come out and see the tree, we will need to look at the whole area, so no, pictures will not help. When I go out to look at a tree removal the first thing I look for is what we call drop zone. How large is the area under the tree, is there a house or shed in the way, is there wires running through the tree, is there a fence in the way. If there is little or no drop zone limbs will have to be rigged down with ropes increasing the difficulty, time and risk involved in removing the tree. The cheapest trees would be small trees with a large drop zone and easy access for trucks. If the drop zone is large enough that we can fell the tree to an open area. you will be looking at the lower end of the tree removal price spectrum, $100-$1500. Next, I see if we have access, can we get the bucket truck anywhere near the tree, we have a 60ft bucket truck that can turn a whole day tree removal into a few hours. Trees with little drop zone but are able to be removed by bucket truck can still be on the lower end of price. If there is little or no drop zone or bucket truck access we will remove the tree with a climbing arborist and possibly even a crane, these are the trees that are going to cost more if they are large. If you have a large tree with little drop zone and no bucket truck access. The price and time we spend on the job will increase. Large trees with no access or drop zone could cost $1500-$10,000.
The largest tree we ever removed was not the most expensive tree we have ever removed. The most expensive tree we have ever removed was large but it was more of the location of the tree and the lack of access that caused the price to be so high.
What our clients say

“First, we called another company recommended by a top nursery in town. They took our call, said they would be out and did not show up. We called again, they said they would be out again, and we never saw them. We called Wichita Tree Service, they said they would be out and they showed up.
Second, the guys who came to do the work did a good job. They asked for our input, which I really appreciate. I may not know much about tree pruning, but they can take their expertise and my desires and come up with a workable solution. I appreciate that.”

“A recent storm caused a lot of damage to our 45 year old Black Walnut Tree. There were so many limbs down that we were afraid that we might lose the whole tree. We called several places for estimates and advice, but Wichita Tree Service responded to our request right away. When the owner came out to our house, he was professional and knowledgeable; he obviously really cared about the trees. He answered all of our questions, offered some thoughtful suggestions, gave us some choices, and then came up with a very reasonable bid. We were so impressed that we knew that we wanted this company working with us. The team came out very quickly and they were all very courteous, skilled, and experienced. We enjoyed watching the team and their equipment. They were so efficient. The yard was very clean and neat when the team finished. Best of all, our tree looked amazingly nice and was on its way to a healthy recovery. All of the trees on our property were planted as saplings over 40 years ago. We will trust Wichita Tree Service to care for their needs in the future. I strongly recommend this company to any homeowner who in need of care for their trees and landscaping.
