How Much Does Tree Trimming Cost? Hopw Much Does Tree Removal Cost In L.A.?

How much does tree trimming really cost in Los Angeles? What are the costs of stump grinding? We break it down…


Hiring a professional tree trimmer on average will cost anywhere from $80 to $1,000+, with $250 to $500 being about average. 

You should expect to spend approximately the following:

  • $80 for a small tree
  • $165 for a medium-sized tree
  • $250 to $1,000 for a large tree taller than about 45 feet.

Please note: if a tree is diseased, hazardous, and full of pests the price can go up a little. 


Stumps, sometimes just the bane of existence for homeowners. Practically impossible to remove and even worse, an absolute eye soar. A procedure called stump grinding can be used to minimize the visual of the once standing tree. 

A machine called a stump grinder is used to wear down the stump to where it can be layered with top soil, therefore blending in with the landscape. Not only is this procedure more cost effective than having a removal done but also more simplistic. 


If the first option doesn’t catch your interest then perhaps a full removal will. This option can be more expensive but will fully remove the stump.

In this case it must be dug out of the ground. The expenses can also play another factor here as in some cases the ground surrounding the premises can be rocky or hard to dig into. If you’re in need though, our arborists at West Hollywood Tree Service can help!


We offer services in the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles area.

Rates for Stump Grinding typically run at $275 to $600.  Sometimes the stumps just need to be removed outright, such an operation only occurs when the stump reaches a size of 20 inches in diameter.

This runs closer to $500 or $600 for outright removal. For grinding this costs about $400 in an average area. Factors for grinding in particular can depend on things such as topography and tree species.

Most species are handled without much difficulty including: pear tree, apple tree, Japanese birch, bronze birch borer.
