Cost of Land Clearing in Brisbane

In the market for land clearing services, but don’t know how much it’s going to cost you? This is the place for you.

This article will focus on the cost of professional land clearing services in Brisbane and surrounding areas, the factors that influence said cost and when to contact the team at Affordable Tree Service for assistance.

Is There a Specific Price You Can Expect to Pay for Land Clearing? 

Because all land is different, it can be difficult to provide an accurate quote of how much land clearing services will cost without actually seeing the area in need of work. Some services may cost only a couple of hundred dollars, but others may be several thousands of dollars.

For this reason, it’s important to contact your professional land clearer for a proper quote.

Factors Influencing Cost of Land Clearing Services

There are a number of different factors our professionals need to take into account when providing you with an accurate estimate of what it will cost you for land clearing services. Here, we’ll discuss some of the most important things we consider:


In Queensland, there are certain regulations homeowners (and professionals like us) need to follow. Sometimes, navigating these regulations is more involved and may influence how high (or low) your quote is.

Size of Land

The size of the land requiring clearing matters when it comes to how much it will cost you. In most cases, smaller plots of land will cost less than larger spaces, which is understandable when you think of the equipment required and labour.

Equipment & Duration

Most professional land clearing services require a certain amount of equipment in order to get the job done, just as it would if you were to attempt it yourself (which is not something we recommend). 

The type of equipment required may influence the price you pay, especially if the duration of the job is a little longer than usual, and cannot be completed in one day.


Accessibility is something we always consider when taking on work, and this is especially true when you engage land clearing services. We need to make sure that, where possible, we are able to access the area in need of clearing easily, and move any equipment needed in and out as required. 


Is the land in need of clearing fairly flat, or are there lots of hills and rocks we need to navigate. If it’s the latter, you may find you need to pay a little extra for your services than if it was flatter.


Have you cleared the area of any excess rubbish? If there’s a lot of debris around which needs to be cleared in addition to the trees on your property, it may influence your quote.

Number of Trees

The number of trees in need of clearing will greatly influence how much you can expect to pay. For instance, if there are only a few trees to be removed, it will likely cost you less than if there was a “forest full”.

Condition of Trees

It’s much easier for us if the trees that need to be cleared from your land are healthy and in good condition. We are more than capable of removing them, of course, but the work required to do so may be more labour intensive, which will increase the cost.
