San Mateo tree removal prices can be high if the tree is large and unstable or hazardous to your health or property. Here are some tips for reducing your San Mateo tree removal costs:
First, ask neighbors if they would be interested in cutting down the tree on your property. Some people might be willing to donate their trees to help the local watershed or forest grow. Ask if they would be willing to cut down a larger tree that could provide needed shade for your plants during the summer months. Trees that grow close together, such as on a street corner or a sidewalk, can make great park benches. The San Mateo County Public Works Department will often waive fees for tree removal when you have permission from the homeowners association. However, the Parks and Recreation Division will not waive fees for tree trimming out of your view if it is apparent there will be nothing left behind.
39 Second, you can call the San Mateo Beekeepers Association for free, no obligation quotes on tree removal costs. There is also the San Mateo County Earth Service, or S.M.E.S., which also has free estimates and offers, upon approval, towing and pruning at a fee.
Third, you can call several San Mateo tree removal companies, or arborists, for free. Many arborists advertise free quotes online, so take advantage of these.
