How much does land clearing service cost?

There are a few factors that go into the price of clearing a piece of property

The site and condition of the land, are there large slopes or is it flat? Is it heavily wooded with large trees or is it mostly grass?

Are there any local permits, environmental regulations or zoning variances needed?

Will the cleared debris need to be hauled away or will it be burned?

How accessible is the property and how much land need to be cleared?

Will the land need leveling or grading? Typically required before construction begins.

Why not just clear the land yourself?

Though it may sound tempting, clearing land is a lot of hard work! It’s much more than using a chain saws to chopping down a few trees. It consist of renting large equipment, that can be very costly and it takes experience working with the trees and soil conditions in Central Florida.

Safety is also an issue, you need to be very familiar with working with large equipment. Overgrown vegetation here in Florida is known to hide dangers and hazardous materials under them, which will need to be safely removed.
