But to answer your question on how much you might be spending, the cost for tree and stump removal may depend on the type of job as arborists will consider this as a factor when giving you a quote.
The height of the tree. The cost of shorter trees is of course, different from bigger trees as they have more limbs and are higher and often need more equipment to ensure that the crew are also safe when doing the removal. The bigger and thicker the tree, the larger the tools the arborist would need.
Hazards around. If the tree is in a place where it is hazardous, the arborist may charge more. For instance, if the tree is near a power line or close to a hose.
Emergency calls. If you call during an emergency, they may charge you a little extra as they will have to do the job quickly and effectively.
