How much does it cost to clear land?
The price of a commercial land clearing project can vary depending on a few factors, including the type of vegetation, the size of the property, and the terrain. Prices can range from as low as $1,000 or as high as $12,000, but the typical range falls between $1,250 and $4,435, according to HomeAdvisor. If the property has light vegetation and flat terrain, prices will generally remain low. The more difficult and time-consuming the project, the more it will cost.
If you’re clearing land to prepare a construction site for a home, prices will range from $1,283 and $4,688. For heavily forested land, prices range between $3,000 and $5,600 per acre while lightly wooded lots will cost $500 to $2,000 per acre. The national average price of a commercial land clearing project is $2,945.
There are a few other factors that may drive up the price of a land clearing project. Along with labor, companies may also charge extra for:
- Clearing away and disposing of debris
- Equipment acquisition
You can always try to reduce costs and dispose of the debris yourself, but depending on the size of the land, it may take a significant amount of time and manpower. Ultimately, it’s recommended to let those who have years of experience take care of the work.
