Question DetailsAsked on 10/22/2014

How much should it cost to remove a 12' Bradford Pear tree that has fallen? 76053 zip code.

I have a roughly 12' tall, 11 year old Bradford Pear tree that blew over in a wind storm. My yard faces Trinity Blvd. (Hurst, TX.) and limbs could easily thrown over to a truck. I am interested in cutting it down for possible firewood and chipping for mulch, or complete removal.

Your Search the List category is Tree Service - though for a 12' tree, assuming it is not within 15' of powerlines or real near a house or greenhouse or such, a Handyman could probably do it with a sawzall assuming there is a lot of free area to fell it into - this is a tiny job for a tree service unless you want the chips for your use - you couldactually probably do this yourself easily a lot cheaper even if you have to buy a sawzall and a couple of 12-16" tree limbing blades for it, assuming you are physically up to that.

Otherwise, a Tree Service will probably charge you about $150-250 to cut it up and chip it - does not make much difference to cost whether you keep the mulch or not, because they usually sell it for about what it costs them to haul it to the person they are selling it to. Grinding the stump to below ground level might run another $40-75 or so while they are there, assuming this is about an 8-12 inch diameter stump at ground level.
