If you have a tree on your residential or commercial property that needs to be removed, you might be wondering how much the removal is going to cost you and whether you could save a bit of money by doing it yourself.
When it comes to tree removal, there are a lot of different factors that go into the actual job. From removing the entirety of the tree’s stump and root ball so that you’re not stuck with another unwanted tree in a few years, to managing the risks and dangers of removing larger trees, it’s always recommended to use a professional tree removal service provider, like Kiwi Tree Lopping!
The cost of NOT removing a tree
While tree removal costs can be significant, there’s no denying that, the costs of not removing a dangerous, dead, broken, or risky tree can be far MORE costly. Problematic trees should not be ignored. Having said that, what is it going to cost to have your tree removed professionally?
The cost of tree removal
While the average cost of tree removal it’s around $800-$900 in Australia, the actual cost can vary wildly. Small, simple tree removal jobs can be completed for as little as $350 while hugely complex and large trees can cost upwards of $4500.
Factors influencing the cost
Where is your tree located? Is it easily accessible? Is it easy to remove after it has been cut down? Is it close to electrical or service wires? The more difficult or complex the location the higher the cost.
Tree species with larger, thicker and heavier branches and trunks are likely to cost more as they take longer to remove.
Size and weight
The heavier and larger the timber that needs removing the more labour required which in turn is going to translate into more cost. Smaller, younger and lighter trees will cost significantly less to have removed.
It’s not just the cost of removing the tree that needs to be considered. While many tree removalists will also dispose of the timber for you, the extra service is likely to come at an extra cost.
If the tree’s integrity in terms of structure is already compromised, or if it’s particularly close to electricity lines, there might be an added cost to compensate for the dangers involved.
