Full Answer

Many tree removal services charge by the height of the tree, with a sliding per-foot scale that goes up for taller trees. Smaller trees under 30 feet typically cost somewhere between $100 and $500. Medium trees, 30 to 60 feet tall, typically cost up to $900. Taller trees over 60 feet typically cost between $400 and $1400.

These costs should include chipping and hauling away the branches and removing the stump; however, not all services include these charges in the initial estimate. Services also charge extra for trees that are not clear of buildings or utility lines.
