Can I be charged for an estimate if the contractor doesn't notify me of the fee beforehand?

Question Details: I got an estimate for some tree removal but the contractor didn't say there was an estimate fee. He then chose not to take the job. Now he is saying that I will get a bill for his estimate, $100/trip out to the property for 2 trips. He's threatening to put a lien on my house if I don't pay. He never gave an actual estimate/quote. He chose not to take the job. He has been unprofessional in the conversations since turning down the job.
