How Much Does Tree Removal Cost?

When the roots of a tree interfere with your plumbing or electrical lines, then it's time for removal. Tree stumps that are too close to the road or disrupt your daily life, also require removal. The cost of tree removal depends on a variety of factors.

Average Cost

According to Cost Helper, the cost of removing a tree starts at £81 and can rise up to £910 or more, based on 2010 data. The size of the tree is the determining factor in the price, with larger trees taking more money to remove.


The tree you want removed should be set back from any power lines or utility lines and should also be small enough to clear any buildings or awnings in the area. If your tree doesn't meet these guidelines, the job may cost you more.

Expert Insight

Talk with the company beforehand and ask what it includes in the removal process. The company may charge more to cut the tree down, before removing it and charge an additional fee for grinding down the tree stump.
