our-pricing

If you're new to having your tree pruned, it can be an eye opening experience — but not in a good way. Tree work is expensive due to safety issues, costly equipment use, and because of the highly trained talent and endurance it takes to do the job right.

NOTE:

There is a $75 base fee if the project requires pruning, or an arborist's feet to leave the ground.
We do not use spurs/gaffs.

Our tree pruning services and prices are described below:




Adolescent Tree under 20 ft tall

Structural pruning/training.

$150-300

This is the ideal age to address many structural issues many tree species have. We will most likely target to remove 30-50% of the tree canopy to address years of incorrect, or lack of pruning. This may seem like a lot, but a younger tree of this size can adapt quickly. Price is dependent on size and tree species. Brush disposal and treatment options will be given on a 3-tiered estimate.




Intermediate Tree 20-35 ft

Providing clearance for phone, cable, or power lines.

$20-$60

Depending on wire type.

Structural pruning to reduce hazards.

about-us

Antelope Arborists specializes in tree consulting in the Sacramento area.

We are two ISA-certified arborists, based in Antelope, offering freelance consulting, diagnosis, and pruning. Local, honest, courteous, experienced, AFFORDABLE arborists conducting evaluations WITHOUT the hassle and high price of larger commercial services.

We offer a personal, accurate, thorough examination of your vegetation needs, when local nurseries, word of mouth, and internet searches prove inadequate. Save time, effort, and the frustration of dead ends in your busy schedule and let us help.

Our Mission:

Making the correct cuts on the correct branches to encourage strong branch and trunk unions will reduce the risk of failure when the tree is older. Our policy is to not simply raise a canopy for aesthetics without addressing these other issues. The International Society of Arboriculture has adopted the concept of Structural Pruning, and many municipalities and tree companies have been educated and trained on this worldwide standard. We will not ignore ant trees structural defects, and leave the homeowner with the consequences later when a branch fails and causes property damage.

Our Qualifications:

  • 22 years combined experience as Foresters in vegetation management, urban forestry, land restoration and local plant nursery sales.

  • Certified by the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) 2003 & 2010.

  • Utility Specialist certification 2007.

  • Bachelor's Degree in Earth Science from California Polytechnic State University,
    San Luis Obispo, with a minor in Soil Science.
