Frequently Asked Questions

Q How much will my tree service cost?

Each tree is different, so we base our pricing on access (can our trucks reach the tree?), the size of the tree, the level of difficulty (are there wires involved?), and the amount of clean up (do you want us to chip the brush or cut the wood into 18” lengths?). Because of these factors, we will come out to give you an estimate before your job is scheduled.

Q Do I need to be there when the estimate is given?

No. If you are not home when the estimate is given, we will leave an estimate in your mailbox or front door listing the prices for the specified tree work. If further dialog is needed, you will receive a follow-up call.

Q How do I schedule an estimate?

Please call our office, and let us know what tree work you need done. You also may fill out our online form. If you need trimming done, please specify what kind of trimming you are expecting.

Q Is Forest Hills Tree Service insured?

We are fully insured for liability resulting from injury to persons or property. We can provide you with a certificate of insurance upon request.

Q Are estimates free?

Yes, we offer estimates free of charge, however, we prefer to group jobs on a location basis. Your estimate will be given when we are in your area. It is most helpful if trees are marked (for example, with paint or string), so we know exactly which trees you’d like us to look at in case you are not home. Estimates are normally given within 1-2 days after you call our office. It is helpful if you provide us with your work and/or cell phone numbers.

Q Is stump grinding included in the estimate?

Stumps will be left approximately six inches from ground level unless specified to the contrary in the estimate. Stump grinding is not included our service, unless agreed upon in the estimate. Please note that stump grinding does not include removal of the stump grindings. We are not responsible for damage to underground wires. It is your responsibility to know, inform, and mark where underground wires are located.
