The local government's environmental department can help with subsidized tree removal. As an example, the Village of Maywood runs a Tree Removal Assistance Program to assist single-family homeowners with the removal of dead, diseased, decayed, or nuisance trees from private properties.

Similarly, California has established a fire prevention grant program to remove dead trees. It is intended to fund tree removal to reduce the potential for large and damaging wildfires.

City cuts is a program in Pittsburgh that provide free landscaping help and lawn care in the City for seniors, veterans, and those with disabilities who are unable to mow their own lawn.

Power Company


Under the National Electric Safety Code (NESC), electric companies are responsible for some of the maintenance, trimming, and removal of a tree if it proposes a safety concern. Contact your power company to see if they can help you with dangerous tree removal on your property.

Logging companies can sell trees to lumber mills and lumber yards to be sold to consumers and also home builders who use a lot of lumber. Additionally, a logging company may pay you to remove your trees if you have substantial trees on your property.

Post Classified Ads

Landscaping Companies


If you have a great-looking tree that you feel would be a shame to cut up and remove, there are companies out there that will buy them and use them for landscaping projects.
