Pricing: How Much Do Our Tree Services Cost?

Tree surgeon services almost always require a custom estimate based on the time, staff, and equipment required. Because of this, Armour Hill offers free estimates to all customers. Give us a call if you’re concerned, and we’ll use our expertise to evaluate your needs and make recommendations at no cost to you.

Why is a Custom Estimate Necessary?

An arborist’s work is much more nuanced business than you might think. While you may look at an unhealthy tree and think it requires expensive removal, an expert eye may discover that it only needs some professional care or cabling to obtain optimal health.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tree Services (FAQ)

Got more questions about our tree services? We’ve got the answers.

What is the process for getting a free estimate?

Here’s how it works: you call us or fill out our contact form, telling us about the work you need done. We’ll set up a time for one of our experts to come out and take a look at your property.

Once they’ve assessed the situation, they’ll give you a custom estimate with no expectation that you will proceed with the work.

If you’re satisfied with the estimate, we can get started immediately. If not, no problem – you’re under no obligation to use our services.

Does tree removal require a permit in Peterborough?

We take care of the entire permit process for our clients, but you should still be aware of the following information:

In Peterborough a permit is required to remove any trees over 7.5cm in diameter. There is  a $65 permit fee if the tree is healthy and a $15 fee if the tree is hazardous or dead.

There are also replanting requirements if you wish to remove healthy trees.

How much does tree removal cost?

There’s not an easy answer to that. You see, it depends on how much work needs to be done and where the tree is located. The price will depend on each specific case.

What are the benefits of cabling and bracing for trees?

Cabling and bracing can help trees with structural defects by supporting the weakened portions of the tree.

The cables are installed high up in the canopy, usually above where you will see them. Bracing is also used where large cracks are present in the trunk.

The benefits include extending the lifespan of your trees and added support to help make it through those strong storms.

Why do I need a risk assessment for my trees?

A risk assessment is essential to determine whether your tree needs removal or just some pruning, and if so, what kind of work it will require. When assessing a tree for risk, we consider the species and age of the tree, any risky structures around it, and sometimes how close it is to power lines.
