How Much Does Land Clearing Cost and Why Should I Hire an Experienced Arborist?

Land clearing is a process where trees, plants and shrubs are removed from an area, which typically involves equipment ranging from chainsaws to bulldozers, excavators, or other heavy machinery to remove obstacles like rocks, uneven dirt and other debris from a parcel of land, as well as trees.

The land clearing cost will depend on several factors:

  • The size of trees in both height and diameter
  • The number of trees, shrubs and plants in the area
  • The number of hills and dips in the area
  • What kind of debris is present, such as rocks, which can damage equipment
  • The number of trees that will remain and how easy it is to move around them
  • The species of tree as they will vary in hardness

So, How Much Does Land Clearing Cost?

Clearing flat land with light vegetation and few trees can cost $20-$200 per acre, clearing more sloping land with overgrown brush and a few trees can cost $500-$2,000 per acre, and clearing heavily wooded or bushland can cost $3,000-$6,000 or more an acre.
