Assuming this is part of the shallow sprinkler system distribution piping, not a deeply buried supply line to the timer, probably about $125-250 labor and maybe $10-30 parts by a Landscaping contractor who does sprinkler system work - or about $175-300 labor if you have a Plumber do it. This would NOT include any landscaping work to reseed/sod the excavation to replace the pipe section - which would likely be about 10' long or so to get out all the damaged portion.

DIY just the pipe materials cost and a pint or 1/2 pint can each of proper type primer and glue for the pipe type (probably white or gray PVC or CPVC - you could get universal primer and multi-plastic glue to be on safe side). Nothing much to cutting out the badly bent or cracked sections with a hacksaw or regular wood cutting saw, then priming and gluing the pieces back together. Simple process - just have to be sure to clean any dirt or mud off the joint areas before priming and glueing, and when fitting the pieces together you only get a few seconds before the joint sets up, but not a big deal.

If you want the lawn repaired along with the job, then the landscaping company is what you want, and probably more like $300-1000 total depending on whether you have them also fix the hole from the tree (after tree service or you cut it away and cut and pull up the surface roots) and size of tree hole of course.
