We consider a few crucial factors that will determine the final cost of tree lopping and removal. These elements contribute to the project’s difficulty level and involve various power tools and skillset to execute safely and properly.
That said, here are the tree cutting factors to keep in mind:
Simply put, the taller the tree is, the harder it is to cut. Our team will not just cut a wedge and yell timber! To avoid property damage and the risk of injuries, we’ll need boom trucks and special equipment to access the higher branches first.
Here are our average rates for different tree heights:
- Small tree $450-$900
- Medium tree $950-$2,450
- Large tree $2,500 – $4,900
Our arborists will also take the tree’s overall health and approximate age into account. That’s because trees with brittle trunks and infested branches might break down during the process and injure nearby personnel and damage your property.
Aside from cutting down diseased trees, we also take care of grinding down the stumps and tree trunks. These objects can still pose physical hazards and injury if left after cutting down the tree. Our stump grinding service ranges from $220-$480, depending on the stump size, location, and ease of access.
If you’re not sure whether your trees are healthy or need to be cut down, let our arborists at Trees Down Under inspect them first.
Location and Accessibility
The tree’s location and elevation will also have a slight impact on the overall cost. That includes whether or not we can properly place our equipment around the tree and nearby obstacles that might hinder the process.
Trees that are located on rather hard-to-access spots will require heavy equipment such as cranes to maintain a safe and efficient operation. We provide crane services for tree cutting for as low as $200-$500 per hour, depending on the crane size and ease of access.
Additionally, your address and location should also influence the tree cutting cost. To save up more on travel expenses in the Northern Suburbs, Trees Down Under is the only team you’ll need to call.We provide reliable arborist services across all Sydney homes in the Northern Suburbs.
