The average cost of tree removal can vary quite a bit, depending on a few key factors:
The size of the tree: Larger trees take more time, equipment, and labor to remove, and so they cost more.
The location of the tree: If the tree is located near power lines or buildings, it might be more difficult (and therefore more expensive) to remove. Similarly, if the tree is hard to access, this can increase the price.
The health of the tree: A tree that’s already dead or dying might be more dangerous to remove than a healthy one, leading to increased costs.
Local rates: Rates can also vary quite a bit depending on where you live and the current demand for tree removal services.
For a small tree up to 30 feet high you should expect to spend between $250 and $600. For medium trees up to 60 feet high, the cost could range between $600 and $1000. Large trees between 60 and 80 feet could cost between $1000 and $1,500. For very large trees, such as a pine or oak tree, you can expect to pay between $1,500 and $2,000 or more.
