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. Getting the roots out requires a stump remover and that is an extra charge. Replacing the sidewalk could run you up to $300 or so, depending on how long it is... More

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