You need to determine the cost of tree removal to budget properly for the project. We can give you an idea of what to expect in terms of the cost for removing trees in Utah.
Factors that Affect Tree Removal Cost
Generally speaking, the cost of removing a tree is based on four main factors:
- Height: Most companies charge a specific fee per foot. So the taller the tree, the higher the price.
- Condition: Trees that are leaning, those that have multiple trunks and any that are significantly decayed or dead are often more dangerous — and therefore, more costly — to remove.
- Diameter: Wider trees take longer to remove. And the longer a job takes, the higher the cost is.
- Location: Trees that are close to buildings, power lines or other areas that are difficult to access are more complicated to remove, which adds to the cost.
Average Costs for Tree Removal
According to HomeAdvisor, an online information marketplace, the national average cost for tree removal is $651. However, the price can range anywhere from $75 to $1,500 or more, depending on several factors.
Small trees, or those under 30 feet tall, typically cost between $125 and $437 to remove.
For medium trees that are between 30 and 60 feet in height, removal can range from $175 to $900.
Trees that stand taller than 60 feet usually cost between $400 and $1,400 to remove. However, massive, older trees may require special equipment that can drive the cost higher.
Additional Tree Services
Other services are typically not included in the cost. If you want the stump removed, for example, you can expect to pay an additional fee. The same goes for log splitting, and in some cases, limb chipping and removal. In addition, if your property is in a remote location, you may be charged extra for travel.
