Cost of Stump Removal

When it comes to tree or stump removal, cost is often a major consideration for many homeowners.

In this article, we’ll discuss what you can expect to pay when organising professional stump removal services on your property, the factors that influence this and when to contact the experts at Affordable Tree Service for assistance.

What’s the Average Cost of Tree or Stump Removal?

Unfortunately, there’s no one price you can expect to pay when organising professional tree or stump removal services. Some tree removal will cost a couple of hundred dollars while others are much more expensive.

What Factors Influence the Cost of Professional Stump Removal Services?

There are several factors you need to consider when organising professional stump removal services, all of which may influence the cost you can expect to pay.

In this section, we’ll break down some of the most common considerations and how they affect the potential cost of your service.


Often if you want to remove a particular tree or stump in Brisbane or Queensland properties, you need to consult council for permission.

While your tree removal professional can help you in terms of providing direction, and often already have the right licensing needed to remove stumps, additional licensing or restrictions may increase your quote.

Type of Tree or Stump and Service Required

The type of tree stump you need to have removed will greatly influence the type of stump removal.

For instance, softer trees like palms are potentially a lot easier to remove than other trees, so you may not need specialist equipment. In this case, the cost may be a lot cheaper than other tree types and will often help determine the type of service you require from your experienced tree removal specialist.

Root Systems

Root systems sometimes come down to the type of tree, however this is worth its own point of consideration when helping to determine the cost of your service.

Understandably, the deeper and more ingrained the root system, the more difficult it may be to remove the stump. This may influence the amount of labour (and potential equipment) required, which in turn will determine the price.

Number of Trees

The more trees you have to remove, the more expensive your stump removal services will be. That’s why you need to specify this when requesting a quote from your professional stump removal service.


Often, the condition of a tree or stump will be taken into account and will help determine stump removal cost.

For instance, if a tree is dead but still in relatively good condition, it is likely that the cost will be much less than one that is incredibly sick or in terrible condition.

Clean Up

At Affordable Tree Service, we try to keep our work areas as clean as possible and leave your property in the same condition as we found it. However, this is something we (and others like us) need to consider when providing you with an accurate estimate.


Accessibility plays a large part in determining cost, just in the same way as the type of service you require and the type of tree you have will.

For instance, if access to the stump in question is tricky, and we need specialist equipment to access the area, this will need to be factored into any costs we provide you with when quoting on services.
