If you’ve ever looked at a cherished tree in your landscape and thought, “it would look much better over there,” you’re not alone. Plenty of property owners decide to move a tree, but wonder “how it will cost to transplant a tree?”
Well, to get the answer to this question, keep reading to find out what things go into an estimate.
Cost to Transplant a Tree
There’s no general cost for tree transplanting service. Instead, tree care specialists use details about your tree and your landscape to create an estimate.
Many factors go into a tree transplanting estimate. The price differs based on things such as the location of the tree and the size of the tree. Another issue to consider is if the transplant job requires a large crew to dig by hand or special equipment.
Before an arborist gives you an estimate, he’ll get every detail of the project such as:
Tree Size - As you can believe, moving an enormous, massive tree from point A to point B necessitates more work than moving a modest-sized tree. In some instances, your tree contractor might recommend not moving a big tree. The bigger the tree, the more significant the possibility there will be adverse effects from root system loss all through the preparation phase and ecological effects after the transplant.
Time - Tree care experts typically work by the hour. So, difficult tasks need more time and therefore, cost more money. With that being said, when you work with arborists, they’ll be clear and truthful about how much time a job will take and how they’ll get it done effectively so you can feel assured about the cost.
Equipment and Crew - To be safely transplanted, some trees require a crew of arborists and specialized equipment, which increases the total cost. On the other hand, little trees typically don’t need as much and make for a less costly job.
Transplanting a tree is an excellent alternative and an earnest money saver. You can move your tree from one spot to another in your landscape or from another property. It's a fantastic way to bring new life to your outdoor area at a real low-cost when compared to the price of purchasing a new tree.
