Question DetailsAsked on 7/19/2013

How much should it cost to remove one pine tree?

The tree is dead, is outside of a fence, near the street. Should be an easy job.

How tall is it? What is the diameter of the trunk at chest height? What area of the country are you in? Do you need to have the tree hauled away too?

All of the above are questions that you need to consider when you get a price.

If you click on the Home > Tree Service link right below your question, you will find similar questions with answers, including approximate costs. Read the questions - you will see a lot depends on whst is going to be done with the tree once down - just drop it, drop and limb, drop limb and dispose of limbs, drop and dispose of limbs and cut trunk and large branch pieces to firewood length, or drop and dispose of all. You also have the issue of whedther you want the stump ground away or not, and if to ground level, 6" below, or 12" below ground level. Can make about a 3:1 difference in cost to you or more, depending which of the above options you take.

As an extreme case - last year I had a neighbor have two 200+ year old cottonwoods taken down - cost him $400 to have them dropped (had to be in several pieces per tree by a climber due to nearby houses) - he was quoted $3000 for complete drop and remove because there was an estimated 20 tons of material, and up to 6 feet in diameter - that would have been a LOT of chainsawing labor, and imagine grinding away a 10 foot diamter stump (with major feeder roots included). He went with the drop only in no-leaf season, burned the small branches, then he and several neighbors cut the rest up for his outdoor burn pit firewood.

If you go with the drop only option, or drop and frind only, youmay get a good rate, as most tree companies like to have a few "when-convenient" small jobs to flesh out days when they finish a large job but is still an hour or so till quitting time.
