How much does it cost to remove a tree in Victoria?

If you’re thinking about removing a tree, the first question you probably have is “how much does it cost to remove a tree?”

The cost of tree removal can vary depending on a number of factors, including the size and location of the tree, as well as the complexity of the job.

Generally speaking, smaller trees can be removed for a few hundred dollars, while larger trees may cost several thousand dollars to remove. In BC you should anticipate paying between $750 and $4,000 for tree removal services and in some circumstances you could be looking at paying significantly over $4,000. 

Factors affecting the cost of Tree Removal

The most important factor after the size of a tree, in determining the cost of tree removal is access

  • Are there hazards, obstacles, valuable property that prevent or hinder ease of access? 
  • Is the tree itself hazardous to access, is the tree alive or dead and does it have any compromised limbs? 
  • Does it require specialized machinery to dismantle and remove the wood? 
  • How close is it to power or service lines? 
  • How close can the chip truck get to the tree floor debris removal?
  • Is there a long distance to have to move the wood once it is on the ground? 

All these factors play into the cost associated with tree removal.

Corners should not be cut when removing a tree. As a result, it is important to get a quote from a qualified tree removal service before having any work done.
