We wish that pricing tree removals was as simple as choosing from the menu above, but it simply is not: We need to see your tree and your yard in person in order to get you accurate pricing and relevant, detailed and specific terms. We do not issue “estimates” for work; With Six Tree you get a written, guaranteed-price quote every time.

For a free, no-obligation quote, please give us a call at 403 220 0007, or email here today!

Six Tree takes your time very seriously. While it’s nice to be able to meet in person, we understand that you are very busy and might not have time to meet with us, and that is okay. All we need is a good description from you over the phone or via email, and we will visit your location before sending your quote to you by email. We issue only written, detailed quotes with guaranteed, no-haggle pricing. Since we’ve been to the site in person, we’ve been able to see all of the dozens of little details that affect the cost of a tree removal, and the result is that there are never any surprises for you on the day of the removal. That is, unless you do something like install a greenhouse under the tree to be removed without our knowing! Note that tree removal and stump grinding are separate but related operations.

After we have visited your location to size up the tree(s), we will carefully review all of the relevant factors so that we can get you our best possible price on the work. When you get a quote from us it will often contain much more detail than that of our competitors, including many details that you might not have thought to ask about. If you are comparing quotes, read the “fine print”, and be sure you are comparing apples to apples.

How much does it cost to remove a tree?

This must be the most commonly-asked question in our industry! It is a great question, and it is difficult to answer. The short answer is “It depends”. The long answer is really, really long, so here is what’s hopefully a useful medium-length answer instead:

Tree removal costs can vary greatly. If a characteristic of your tree or your yard means that it takes more time to safely do the removal, then it will cost more. Here is a non-exhaustive list of such factors:

  • Size of the tree (branch volume, trunk wood volume, and to a lesser extent the height of the tree)
  • Type of tree (density, hardness, and strength of the wood and type of branch structure)
  • Tree health (weakened, broken, or rotted sections take more time to safely dismantle; dead or dying wood can sometimes be much lighter and easier to handle; multiple tops on evergreens are relatively weak, not to mention the corresponding increase in branch volume)
  • Location of the tree relative to where the truck and chipper must be parked (long, narrow, and/or convoluted routes take more time to navigate during disposal)
  • Location and nature of hazards present during the removal (a tree in the middle of a field is much faster to safely dismantle than one that overhangs a house, has service lines running through it, or overhanging another tree that you wish to keep)
  • Surrounding ground surface (dirt or concrete is fastest to clean up, but concrete can be damaged by blocks of trunk wood if it is not in good condition)
  • Neighbourhood parking and traffic (some locations require additional pedestrian or vehicle traffic control measures, temporary “No Parking” signage, etc.)

Since there are so many factors that affect the cost for removing a tree, we do site visits as part of every quote requested.

The cost for stump grinding is less variable than for tree removal, but it is affected by:

  • Size of the stump (both the cross-section and the height above ground)
  • Type of tree (density and hardness of the wood)
  • Age of the stump (old, partially rotted stumps tend to be faster to grind)
  • Location of the stump relative to where the stump grinding machine must be unloaded (long, narrow, and/or convoluted routes take more time to navigate)
  • Proximity of nearby obstructions and hazards (e.g. fence boards or posts, paving stones, other landscaping features, or utility boxes)
  • The same neighbourhood parking and traffic factors as above

How do I choose a tree service?

Nobody wants to pay more than they have to for any product or service. Of course, you can also run the risk of regretting your choice of going with a too-cheap option. Good, safe tree work is an investment, and everyone has different values and a different tolerance for risk. The old adage “There is no such thing as a free lunch” applies here as well as anywhere: If it costs less, then there is a reason for it. It’s up to you to determine what is the best value for you, and price is just one of many factors that you should consider. We want to help you to better understand what you’re getting when you choose Six Tree: Our goal is offer you the best value in a professional tree removal service.

We don’t mind you comparison shopping; In fact, we hope that you do! If you have the time to look at the many tree services in and around Calgary, then you can get a better idea of what particular value each one offers, and where our unique value fits into the market. We have spent a huge amount of sweat and energy in developing and maintaining our reputation for professional work and consistently excellent customer service, and our reviews reflect that (Six Tree was the top-rated Calgary tree service company for 2018 on both Google Business Reviews and the Better Business Bureau).

The truth is that there is a HUGE range of professional (and less-professional) tree services in Calgary – It’s an unregulated industry in Alberta, for good and ill. You have lots of choices available at every price point, and it’s up to you to decide what level of service you are going to invest in. If you are comparing quotes, be sure you are comparing apples to apples, and read the fine print.

This is one reason that we do not offer a price matching policy. However, we will be happy to discuss options for making your tree removal more economical – If it saves us time, it saves you money.
