How much does Tree Removal Cost?


Tree Removal costs vary from job to job, unless working off hourly rates with a fixed budget agreed upon with the contractor. Hourly rates can suit certain jobs, such as large tree pruning, multiple tree pruning or habitat tree removals.

For fixed quotations, different companies have different ways of quoting their work, but here at Tree Range Arborists we look at these factors:

  1. Hours/Days required to complete the task
  2. Crew Size and speciality/experience level of staff
  3. Machinery Required.
  4. If any Sub-contractors are involved (Crane Companies etc)

Prices can quickly add up on large jobs, particularly when using legitimate tree companies as the business expenses are extremely high in this dangerous industry. In order to run a sustainable business that can continue to serve you and your friends/families in the future, successful companies must:

  1. Pay Income Tax, Payroll Tax and GST Tax, Employee tax and Super annuation.
  2. Pay their Insurance for Work Cover, Public Liability, Professional Indemnity, Motor Vehicle Insurance, Plant and Equipment Insurance.
  3. Continually service and maintain vehicles and machinery.
  4. Keep up with rising prices for industry related consumables, along with accounting and administration services required for a smooth operation.
  5. Invest in marketing – so clients can choose which company to employ.
  6. Employ an administration team to ensure clients receive the best service attainable.
  7. Pay their hard working, qualified, and experienced staff fairly and appropriately to reduce the turn around of staff and ensure clients always get a tightly knit team on their properties.

Unfortunately in Australia, the Arboriculture industry is not regulated – so it’s entirely up to the business owners to decide to cover these expenses and compete against other companies that do not cover these same expenses. This is why the job can vary so much in price between companies.

Our advice is when shopping around for the right company to do your work, home owners should be wary of suspiciously cheap or unprofessional seeming quotes. It is important to consider whether or not these companies are running as legitimately as can be, conducting a ‘fair work’ environment, ensuring safety for those involved on the job site, keeping insurances and machinery up to scratch and that qualified professionals are entrusted at your property.

What Our Clients Have To Say...

"Suburban tree work completed to create more light in my yard without losing my favourite tree. The team were amazing from initial quote consult all the way through to job completion. Highly recommend them."

Elysia Anketell - Google Review

"We used John and his team to cut down two very large, dangerous poplar trees that were right up against our house. They maintained a positive attitude from start to finish, despite it being quite a tricky job that other arborists didn't want to touch. Job was done quickly and professionally and for about half what we had been quoted elsewhere. Gladly recommend to friends, family, and neighbours."

Dave - Google Review

"This has been one of the best customer experiences I’ve had. The entire team, including office ladies are super friendly, knowledgeable and put so much care and effort into their work. I know they have a lot of customers but they make you feel like you’re the only one!
We had a bunch of large trees taken down and the guys were incredible. Highly recommend!"

Sandra - Google Review

"Tree Range Arborists gave excellent customer service from first contact to the quotation visit to being onsite with their team. The team came on time and safely pushed through some challenging weather and fished on time. As an added benefit, they provided options where a habitat could be created for animals or the wood recycled/repurposed where possible. They did a quality job at a reasonable price. I highly recommend them."
