If you have trees you want to get rid of but you don't have the money to have them cut down (a large tree can cost as much as $1,500 to remove), then you may be concerned about how you are going to pay an arborist to remove them for you. Here are ways you can accomplish getting tree removal service on a budget.

Put in some legwork

Many tree removal companies charge extra to haul away your tree's limbs or have them chipped for you. They also charge extra to split your logs or remove stumps after your trees have been torn down. If you are willing to put in the work, hire to only have a tree taken down, and take care of the extra work on your own. You can have family or friends, or even your local scout organization, come in and take care of the branches and logs for you. This can save you money on your tree removal estimate.

Have your trees limbed 

If you are concerned about tree branches getting in the way of power lines or your rooftop, you may not need to remove your trees completely. An arborist can limb the offending branches off your offending trees and shape them so they have a more natural, balanced appearance. This is a cheaper alternative to taking a tree down completely.

On the same note,you can have a tree limbed entirely, then pay to have the rest of the tree removed at a later date when you have the funds to do so. Talk to your arborist to see if this is an option you can consider to save money.

Give away firewood

After your trees have been cut down, you can offer the tree removal service the logs leftover that can be used for firewood to get a discount on your services. Since many arborists also sell firewood in their off-season, this can help you save money on your tree-cutting costs since they can sell the wood you provide them to other customers.

There are many ways you can save money when you opt to have your trees cut down. You can choose to simply have some limbs removed, opt to put in some of the cleanup work yourself, or even make immediate use of your leftover logs for firewood. Your local arborist can help work out a bid that will match your needs and budget.
