If a storm has caused a tree to fall in your yard, you will likely need a professional to remove it (if the tree fell near any overhead utility lines, make sure you contact your utility company before having any work done). As tree removal is probably not something you commonly need, you may not have much frame of reference for how much this should cost. So how much does it cost to remove a fallen tree? Read below to get a better idea of costs for this service.
Standard Cost of Tree Removal
Standard tree removal pricing will typically range from around $100 to $1,000. A tree from 25-30 feet tall will typically cost an average of $100-$400 to remove. A tree from 30-75 feet high will usually average $400-$1,000 to remove. A tree over 75 feet will probably cost over $1,000 to remove.
Additional Fees for Tree Removal
– Tree removal companies will typically charge an extra 25-50% if there are utility lines, buildings, roads, or other obstructions under or near the tree.
– You can have the stump removed as well, but this will typically cost an additional $100-$500. Companies usually don’t take care of roots, but they will remove exposed roots around the stump.
