Estimate Total
  1. Service

    Oak (Quercus sp) – 40-45 feet tall x 13.5 inch diameter, full canopy

    DOWNING: $235
    DISPOSAL: $425

  2. REBAR LOCATING – Trees in some sections of Carolina Preserve were planted with steel rebar instead of wooden stakes. I must locate using a metal detector and remove any rebar before stump grinding. It is extremely dangerous to grind a stump without removing rebar first.

    FOUND REBAR charged @ $10-$20/piece. Trees typically have 3 pieces, but some have less or none where someone removed it already.

    TOTAL (typical): $0-$60

    I do not expect to find rebar in this section of Carolina Preserve. There is no charge if no rebar is found.

  3. $200 STUMP GRINDING ($150 if done at the same time as the oak tree across the street)

    —– [General Stump Grinding Information Below] —– 

    811 locates water and sewer to the curb, electrical, gas, and telecom to the house. Water and sewer generally go straight from the curb location to the house. If there is a question about water and sewer location the customer must waive my liability for these lines.

    811 does not mark irrigation systems, low voltage wiring (dog invisible fences, lighting, security, etc.) and other underground systems. Per my waiver, I cannot take responsibility for these unless notified as to their existence and location.

  4. Remove mulch mound and stump grindings and dispose. Replace with soil as needed. Expect about 3/4 cubic yard of debris to be removed.

  5. Tree replacement – material

    Trident Maples (Acer buergerianum) in HOA-size typically run ~$270

    I cannot guarantee availability of trees, but I have not had a problem finding Trident Maples so far.

  6. Tree replacement – installation

    HOA-size trees are usually in 25 gallon containers. I charge $140 to install most trees this size, including Trident Maples. (Trees with special planting requirements are generally 50% more.)

    Tree installation details:

Subtotal $1,390.00
Total $1,390.00


Thank you.


Estimate: If, upon arriving at the site, it is determined the final price will exceed the estimate by more than 25%, your approval will be required before work begins.

Quote: The price listed here is the final price unless you change your mind on what needs to be done.

Estimates and quotes are good for the shorter of 30 days or until the condition of the tree changes substantially, such as being struck by lightning or damaged in high winds.
