Expert Tree Felling Prices in Cape Town

At Expert Tree Felling, we understand that felling and removing trees can be dangerous and complex work. Our experienced team has the expertise to safely and efficiently handle tree removal, trimming, and maintenance for residential and commercial properties across Cape Town. We aim to provide superior service and competitive pricing compared to other tree services in the area. Our prices are determined based on the size, type, and condition of your trees as well as the complexity of the job.

Factors That Determine Pricing

  • Tree Size: Larger trees require more equipment, time, and safety precautions to fell or trim. Taller trees may also require boom lifts or cranes to access higher branches.
  • Tree Type: Some tree species like oak have harder wood and deeper root systems requiring more effort to remove. Palm trees also need specialized equipment and methods.
  • Tree Condition: Removing dead, damaged, or diseased trees is typically more complex and hazardous than healthy trees.
  • Accessibility: Trees located near power lines, buildings, or other obstacles require more precautions and planning.
  • Debris Removal: We can remove and dispose of all branches, logs, and debris which does add cost.
  • Location: We may need to charge a transport fee if the job is far from our Cape Town base. Fuel costs are high.
