What Factors Affect Tree Removal Cost Harare
Tree Removal Cost will depend on various factors. That is why we always recommend a site visit so that our specialists will establish factors on the ground. We do not charge for someone to come and do an assessment in Harare. However, tree removal costs will depend on the following:
The Location of the Tree
A tree that is located close to buildings, power lines and other critical obstacles is more likely to be
expensive than a tree located far from buildings. This is because trees located close to buildings will need more personnel, more resources and time. Our liability as a company also goes up in this scenario. A tree located far from buildings is the opposite.
Size of Tree
When we talk about the size of a tree, we mean the total height of the tree. Height is a critical factor in determining tree removal cost Harare. The common practice among tree cutting companies is to charge per metre of height. Common practice classifies a small tree as less than 10 metres. Medium sized trees are in the range of between 10 and 18 metres, whilst large trees generally stand between 18 and 24 metres. Very tall trees are are higher than 24 metres. It is therefore common for tree cutting companies to use the size of a tree to determine the cost of that tree.
Thickness of Tree
Also known as diameter, the thickness of a tree also plays a critical role in how much a person can pay. If a tree is much more thicker than the other, it shall mean it will take more time to remove. A tall and thin tree will be cut down quicker than a shorter but thick tree. This will therefore affect the cost per hour price people shall pay.
Depending on the size, a fallen dead tree might not take time to cut as compared to a live one.Therefore, it might be cheaper to cut. However, in some situation, a dead tree standing upright may be expensive to cut than an alive one. This is because its much risky to cut as it can break easily. A tree feller can fall even if they are putting on full protective clothing when a branch breaks.
