What Does Brush Removal Cost?

It’s an important question with a variety of answers depending on the company you choose and the scope of each job.

Let’s look at some rough costs based on common jobs:

Bradford Pear Tree Removal – Under 20 Feet Tall

Bradford pear or Callery pear trees are those pretty, but awful smelling white-blossomed trees you see blooming in the spring.

They’re an invasive species and should be removed.

Removal of a Bradford pear tree will run from $150 – $300 depending on the size of the tree and method of disposal.

The job can be accomplished in less than a day.

Fence Covered in Virginia Creeper or Other Vines

The pricing here will vary depending on:

  • Fence length.
  • How wound up the vines are in the fence.
  • How thick the vines are.

For situations like these and most others, we recommend requesting a Free Estimate.

What Factors Go Into a Brush Removal Estimate?

There are a few key factors for brush removal estimates:

  1. Equipment needed and its upkeep/repair.
  2. Ease of access and removal. This is related to risk.
  3. Time.


We use hand saws, pruners, loppers, and electric chainsaws to complete brush removal jobs.

Each of these tools need periodic cleaning and sharpening.

We also use a Ford Escape Hybrid to transport tools.

*Included in equipment are the yard waste bags we provide for removing your brush.

Ease of Access and Removal

The tighter the spot is, the more risk there is to property and to the worker.

While we are fully insured, it’s important to recognize and account for the risks in every job.
