What is included in an estimate?

During an estimate, we will review the tree that needs to be removed, the conditions of the terrain, the condition of the tree, the accessibility of the tree, the equipment that may or may not is needed, and the total price of the tree removal.

We can give you an estimate for the tree removal that includes debris removal or we can provide you with a tree removal estimate that allows you to care for the wood after the job is complete.

Can you provide a current copy of your license, insurance and bond information?


We carry copies of our insurance and license on each tree removal job. However, the best way to verify whether a company has insurance, or not, is to call the insurance agent directly. Or to request a copy that is made out to you with your name on it and the current date.

In any case, we are happy to provide you with a copy of our insurance coverage, bond, and Oregon or Washington Contractors license.

How much does it cost for a tree removal?

The cost of tree removal depends on a number of factors. Namely; the height of the tree, the risks involving the condition of the tree, the terrain, and the accessibility of the tree.

An 80-foot tree sandwiched between two multi-million dollar homes on a cliff side containing 18 bees’ nests is going to cost a bit more than a 10-foot apple tree in the middle of a field (and with no bees’ nests nearby).

Will the tree removal process take long?

The time it takes to remove a tree depends on many of the same conditions that determine the cost of tree removal. That includes the height, conditions, and accessibility of the tree.

Most average to small trees can be removed, chipped, and hauled away in 3-6 hours. Larger trees that require climbing, are hard to access and are very large, which may take a day or two. Either way, we will give you an estimated time before we begin work to make sure that we are all on the same page.

Do you carry workers compensation insurance on your employees?


We carry workers’ compensation on all of our employees. Without workers ‘compensation, you could be liable for any injuries sustained by a tree service employee while working on your property.

Workers’ compensation insurance for tree removal companies in Portland is among the highest insurance coverage for any industry.

We have never had a claim and we intend to keep it that way.

Can I do my own tree removal?

Think about how nice it is to open your own ketchup bottles. Do you really want to take that away from yourself? Leave this dangerous job to a skilled tree removal service in Portland.

What equipment will be needed for a tree removal?

Each tree removal is different. Many tree removals can be done with a bucket truck and this is the cheapest and typically the safest route.

If there is limited access to the tree and a bucket truck can not be used, it may be a bit more expensive, as we will have to use climbing gear and an expert tree climber to remove the tree. Our bucket truck has a 100ft reach. In most cases, we can use our truck and save you some money.

We only use Husqvarna and Stihl chainsaws and the best-rated tree-climbing gear when necessary.

We also employ the use of Porter Wraps to lower large sections of tree trunks or heavy branches. A Porter Wrap is a device that allows one person to control the weight of up to thousands of pounds safely.

Can you provide references of your work?


We take pride in our customer satisfaction. If you read our reviews online, you will find that we have customers that are absolutely thrilled with the Portland tree removal service they receive from Monkeyman’s Tree Service.

You can read about tree removals we have done here on our website, or if you would like an actual reference just give us a call at (503) 358-8754.

What is included in a tree removal?

We create custom quotes for each job. We can remove the tree, grind the stump, chip the branches, and haul away the firewood. Or, we can just get the tree down to the ground and let you handle the wood.

We include a written receipt and a safety guarantee.
