How much does it cost to remove a dead tree?
Ben McInerney – Last updated 22 Feb, 2019
What we cover:
The cost to remove a dead tree can range anywhere from $500 – $4500. The average price being $1,807.
Dead trees are normally a little more expensive to remove than a live tree. The reason being it is harder the work with. When a tree is live, it’s timber is softer, but once dead the wood becomes rock hard meaning it takes longer to cut through and it is harder on equipment.
There are a number of factors the contribute to the cost of dead tree removal such as tree size, number of branches, safety and access just to name a few.
For more information on the cost to remove a tree, please visit our tree removal cost guide.
Do I need a permit to remove a dead tree?
No, permits only apply to live trees, once a tree has died you are free to remove it.
Tip: Please make sure the tree is dead, and has not just lost its leaves during autumn and winter. Also just in case, take photos of the tree before removal to document that the tree is in fact dead.
Can I cut down a dead tree on my property?
Yes. As you do not need a permit you are free to remove the tree from your property. Please make sure you engage a qualified arborist to do the job. A lot can go wrong when removing trees, especially dead ones, so don’t get a novice to do it. I also do not recommend you attempt to do the job yourself.

You have 2 options
There are 2 different routes you can take when choosing a potential contractor to carry out your dead tree removal.
An arborist or a lawn care/ garden maintenance contractor.
If it’s a tree no bigger than 5m (a single story house) then a gardener would be your best choice. The main reason you would go with a garden care contractor over an arborist is they are much much cheaper and in less demand.
Arborists are experts in removing large dead trees. You really cannot go anyone else for medium to large size trees. They are highly skilled and have specialize training/equipment to get your job done with ease.
Yes they are more expensive, but the extra prices carries peace of mind as they are qualified and insured, so if anything were to go wrong, you and they are completely covered.
