Tree removal cost is based on size (height and diameter), type, condition, location, and accessibility of the tree(s). Also, do you want us to remove the tree by topping, stumping, stump grinding, or destumping. In addition, what you would you like us to do with the trunk and branches after we have cut down the tree. Tree removal can be costly since it could be complex, time-consuming, and dangerous.
The size, type, location, and accessibility of the stump are all factors that determine the price to grind a stump. The most important thing a home or business owner should do prior to having a stump or stumps grind, is to call in locates (811) to determine if there are any utilities under or near the area where the work is being done.
Prices are determined based on the number, type, size, and location of the trees. Most trees can be climbed and pruned, however other trees require the use of a lift to properly shape the tree and lower the limbs safely.

When should I consider removing a tree?
- Trees in Bad Location: Any tree that poses a threat to your home or property is reason enough to have it removed. We have seen healthy trees come down in light winds. A tree planted too close to a structure (house, office, garage, sidewalks, driveways, etc.) can topple over or falling branches can puncture a roof or cause structural damage. Extending roots can pose a serious threat to foundations, driveways and sidewalks, or underground utilities.
- Dead Trees: A dead tree does nothing for your landscape and can easily become a hazard. Dead trees will with large branches may fall with the slightest breeze. Pests and insects love dead trees. Dead trees are a liability and should be removed.
- Damaged and Messy Looking Trees: Damaged trees are unattractive and kill the curb appeal of your home or business storefront. If the tree is severely damaged or looks too messy and cannot be saved, then get rid of it and replant.
- Nuisance Trees: Trees spoiling your view or blocking out too much sunlight could be considered for removal. Trees can also shade the landscape so much that the property owner cannot grow the desired plants or inhibiting a good-looking lawn. Trees dropping branches, seeds, sap, etc.
- Infected Trees: Trees infested with insects or diseases that cannot be saved should be removed. It is possible that they can spread infectious diseases to surrounding trees and shrubs/plants.
General FAQs on Tree Removal and Service?
It depends on the type of damage your tree has suffered. Normally a visual inspection will determine if a tree is diseased or dying however, trees can look healthy from the outside but are rotting from the inside. Certain trees can be preserved by simply removing the decaying portions. It is also necessary to trim any natural or storm related breakouts with proper collar cuts allowing the tree to heal properly.
No. Any tree is vulnerable during a storm regardless of its present health. We know that as trees age, they are exposed to many stress factors that may alter their structural integrity. Accordingly, old trees are more likely to fail. What we know for sure is that a tree will not come down if you contract Campbell’s Tree Service, LLC to remove it before a storm.
This is entirely dependent on what the owner desires. If a tree is being removed in the middle of the yard, grinding is sufficient. If a tree is being removed to make way for new construction or installing a pool for instance, a complete removal of the stump and roots is the best method. Removing a stump can be quite intrusive and disrupt other local vegetation. Stump Grinding is the more efficient of the two methods and will leave a chip pile that can be used for mulching as well.
Tree Trimming is the process of removing undesirable parts of a tree. It mostly involves thinning out overgrown branches to preserve a tree’s desired size, shape, and appearance. Proper pruning techniques include the removal of twisted, damaged, or dead limbs. Proper thinning opens the foliage of a tree, weight on heavy limbs, and helps retaining the tree’s natural shape. Although the process of tree trimming is focused primarily on aesthetics, it also promotes healthy growth.
Tree Pruning is the process of selectively removing unnecessary branches from a tree and is primarily focused on its future health. It involves removing dead, diseased, infected, weakly attached, and low-vigor branches that prevent the trees from flourishing. Tree pruning helps protect against pests and diseases and promotes strong growth. In addition, tree pruning helps to enhance the shape, structure, and beauty of the tree.
Unfortunately, this answer is not straightforward and depends on several factors. Variables such as the tree species, tree type (e.g., shade, ornamental, or fruit tree), seasons of the year, prevailing weather conditions, and pruning goals all determine the best time to prune your trees. In general, pruning is always recommended after the tree has shed its leaves and before the tree shows signs of budding in the spring. A safe bet in eastern North Carolina is between the months of December through February.
