We just had 3 gum tree removed in the western suburbs it was cheaper to get all 3 done at the same time than at different times. It was $475 each for 2 smaller gums which came done to $275 each and $630 for a larger gum that had branches over hanging our house. These prices did not include stump removal but the stumps poisoned to stop regrowth.

Also ask them to leave the mulch. you won't find better and even if it seems like a lot, your garden will never ever look back Mulch should be 100mm thick and this goes against some info being put out there but doesn't take into account the bigger picture of creating new soil or feeding soils which is what mulch really does Keeping moisture in is a bonus effect not the reason to have it
Click the mulch video in this link Presented by Dr John Colwill (or in his words, "Some guy who knows about plants")

I just had a big tree removed from my front yard in Lutwyche (12m high). I had power lines on both sides so the quotes were quite high, but there was a big (~2k) difference in quotes! I got 5 quotes...
1st - $2500
2nd - $1800
3rd - $2900
4th - $1300
5th - $990
Guess who I went for? These prices are just for tree removal no stump grinding. The quote for $990 was from Michael's Tree Services (http://www.michaelstreelopping.com.au/). They did a nice clean job and finished in about 2 hours. He climbs up there himself, rather than using a cherry picker, so that keeps the price down.
As you can see, it always pays to get a few quotes. Hope this helps.

Climbing the tree themselves is the way it is supposed to be done. This is the technique that arborists employ.

Oh and this is also helpful when choosing your certified contractor

We used these assurance trees (http://www.assurancetrees.com.au) in Newcastle. I think the pricing you've seen is about right. They have a free tree removal cost estimator tool here if that will help you. http://www.assurancetrees.com.au/reside ... estimator/
