Hi marigold 2 before we moved to Wales we had to remove a 40 foot med size tree to help sell the house total cost to romove tree and stump  was £110 and took 2 men just over 2 hours, wood was offered as fuel or removed in the price, you may find the job not as expensive as you think and so muck easier depends how quick you needit done  Good luck Marigold2
