What Clearing Your Land Will Cost You


Land clearing prices

If you are doing major landscaping or are in need of tree harvesting services, the cost to clear land depends on both the tree harvesting companies used, as well as the type of equipment needed to complete your project.

Land clearing prices ultimately depend on several factors, including whether the parcel is flat, sloped, grassy, heavily forested or a combination of these conditions. Other factors affecting price include local rates, local regulations, the total amount of land being cleared and accessibility.

Hiring tree harvesting companies can cost you a relatively little, or a lot, depending no the project. For example, land clearing cost per acre of land with light vegetation and few trees may run for about 200 dollars, while cost to clear land for a heavily wooded or forested piece of property can cost you as much as 6000 dollars.

If you are looking to hire tree harvesting companies for your next project, ask neighbors, friends or at the local hardware store for referrals. Typically a company representative will visit the property before quoting a price for a land clearing project. Try to get several estimates, and verify that each of your candidates is insured and licensed. Checking with the Better Business Bureau is also a great starting point to help you validate the legitimacy of the business.
