 Cost to Clear 4 acres

What is the average price to clear 4 acres of land. This is scrub brush, palmettos, pine trees in Florida.

Should I rent a larger tractor or just pay the big boys to come out and take care of the job?

What should I pay the professionals if I hire them?

Thanks for your thoughts!

there are alot of things to consider in your question.

How much time do you have?

What do you plan on doing with the property?, A house?

Is there any other dirt work that will need to be done to complete the project?

in my area of NW Ind. a project like that would be at least
4K depending on tree size and no.s

Thanks for the reply. I have lots of time, but not lots of $$$. The property has a house on 1 acre cleared. I want to clear other parts of the property for horse paddocks. Potentially, I would need to build up the land - it's in flood zone b & c in florida.

 Cost to Clear 4 acres

I don't have a clue as to how heavily the four acres are treed, but to clear land of dense trees and their stumps in any meaningful amount of time I tell the customer to hire a land clearing company. In the long run an excavator, whole tree chipper, shear, and forwarder would run you about $10,000 here in Connecticut. When they were done you wouldn't know there were ever trees there, and the land would be rough graded. You also would have the option of keeping the chips for mulch and the wood (yeah, in Florida?). I suspect Florida is about the same price.

I estimated one job up here, on a two acre lot with many large trees, at $2500.00 and lost big money. Things went bad when I needed a climber, had too many "leaners," the rented chipper wasn't big enough, my Case 580 tlb took too long to dig out the stumps, needed clean fill for the holes, had to haul away the cut wood and find a place for it, well, you get the picture.

Like most things in life, get multiple estimates and ask for references.
