The cost to remove a tree can vary quite drastically depending on the scale of the job.
Felling a small to medium-sized standard tree with easy access will cost around £400 – 700 and take between half a day and a day to complete based on two labourers.
For a large tree with restricted access or bad health, the cost runs into several thousand pounds and a timeline of two to three days based on a bigger team of people.
The jump in price reflects the scale of the work. A large tree requires more planning, equipment and manpower and is also more difficult to remove.
