I found a house that I really like, but the backyard has quite a few trees. I intend to do some vegetable gardening in the backyard and will need more sun. Does anyone have any idea how much it costs to remove trees in a subdivision? The lot is about 12000SF

You really just have to call a few tree companies and find out. The cost depends on the size of the tree(s), access to it/them, whether you want the stump ground up or not, how much work the guys have at the time, etc. Lots of variables.

we have a small/medium sized fig tree in our backyard that we got a quote of $300 to have it removed and have the stump sanded down.

Try Trees Inc.

They have been around for awhile. The last thing you want to do is hire someone who lets the tree fall on your house or a neighbor's house.

Depends on the size of the tree and how close it is to your house. We paid $1000 for a 2 ft. diameter pine tree that was 4 feet from the house.
After the storm 2 of our very big trees landed on the neighbor's house and 1 on ours. since they were mostly already down we paid 2500 to cut and take to the front yard. At the time, they had no where to take the trees, so could not remove from the yard.

You may also want to check the HOA rules on changing your landscaping. Some are really restrictive on removal of any trees unless they are diseased or a hazard. It varies from HOA to HOA

Thanks for all the input, especially the one about the HOA rules. I never would have thought of that.
