Does anyone know what it costs to trim live oak trees in Austin?

That will depend on the size of the tree, how much you want done, its location, etc. You will need to get an estimate. I had trees trimmed last year and used Adam's Apple tree service. They gave me the lowest estimate by far, and did a great job, sealed all the cuts, even cleaned my roof for me as part of the service.

Make sure you wait until after June to trim any oaks. February to June is the oak wilt beetle season and you don't want to do any trimming then.

I used Adam's Apple on the recommendation from G Grasshopper in a prior post. I was very pleased with the price and the work. They'll come out and give you an estimate with no obligation, so you can get an idea of how much.

Our local landscape and tree pros have all mentioned June 1st as the 'OK to trim' starting date. In fact, my B-I-L(over 25 years in the tree business in central TX) has been heavy at it this past week. Even coming in from Lampasas, he's gotten some bids up here in north north Austin. Gotta think those guys are lovin' the low-mid 90s compared to last year! I'm hoping the job he has in Davis Springs on the 16th will leave the crew some time for a 'discount' visit to our Live Oaks and Cedar Elms . BBQ for everyone if they're not too tired.

Old thread but I'll bite.

$500. Took them all day and won't need another trim for 20 years.

Lots of folks don't trim their trees properly(or at all). Limbs growing downward, limbs about 4 feet off the ground on a 20' tree, trees that are completely 'filled' near the mid-line...bad mojo. Especially with the way trees have grown this year, it behooves the owners to study up on proper tree maintenance. Proper pruning/trimming can make an ordinary tree healthier and better looking...I promise.
