"Depending on wether theres a lot of work involved or if we just cut it from the trunk and let it fall in a safe manner around 2000 but if you are interested in getting it removed we are currently running a discount of 35% until next month"

"To give an accurate quotation we would need to see the tree so we can provide a quote cheap as possible as it All depends on the waste coming off, access to the garden and then access to the tree"

"£250 - £350 ! Get rid of the waste on Facebook or Green waste bags the council take Away every week for free !

I’ve cut tree into small logs so customer can easily post on Facebook for people to use on log burners in the winter !

Saves you money on paying waste removal, which would put an extra £200 on the bill"

"In order to price this, any contractor would need to:

- see the tree
- know whether there is space to fell it
- know whether there is vehicular access

Also, do you just want the tree felled or do you want it cut up and removed?

You need to provide a bit more information to help price this, preferably with photos.

Thanks and good luck.
