The cost of clearing your lot or land of trees will depend on the square acres or meters of land being cleared. It will also depend on how large the trees are, the number and the density. Access is also a factor. Steep blocks are always more difficult and more costly to clear.

Your land clearing job is going to cost you on average $3,450 per acre. At the low end for 1 acre you can pay $1,520 for small shrubs and a few small trees, right up to $7,850 for thicker coverage.

It will also largely depend on the type of companies you get in to do the work.

Tree services or demolition services for tree clearing?

The size of the job will need to determine the amount the type of company and the size of the company you will need to use to save money.

A small to medium-sized tree service will be perfect for a residential lot that needs tree clearing. It will have the equipment to clear 2 or 3 large trees and undergrowth at the right price.

If you have a lot with 20 or 30 large trees, a demolition company might be the way to go. A larger company will have excavators that can remove the trees with ease and take them away. This will be a lot quicker than a tree service who will have to cut them down and grind stumps etc.

If you are unsure I do suggest you get quotes from both types of companies.
