How much can I expect to pay to get a tree removed from my front yard?

I have a rather large maple tree in my front yard. It needs to be removed because the roots are seriously lifting up the concrete in both the driveway and walkway. We're trying to get our house on the market, and this is a bad selling feature, obviously. I'm wondering how much tree removal usually runs, and if they need to do anything to get at the roots too. I'll get an estimate, but I wanted to see if anyone here had an idea.

I would depend on whether or not they can get a bucket truck into your yard. If they can, I would say anywhere from $900 to $1500 to cut it down and remove it.

not cheep. and if the cement walk way needs to be replaced even more. i would say $2000 - $3000. you can do allot of work your self but be careful cutting the tree down. you cant jest cut it you need to start at the top and take it down a little at a time.

It depends on how big the tree is and how close to your house it is - I'd say anywhere from $500 - to $2000.
