Depending on the size of tree, you may need a Special Tree permit. If it is over 55″ around 4.5 feet from the ground it will be a minimum of $1925 (55″ x $35 per inch of circumference of the tree) for the permit (more if the tree is larger)

If the tree is truly dead, you may be exempt from the aforementioned (check with the DCDOT as they will send a certified Arborist to look at it for you)

I got an estimate to remove a “special tree” in my backyard it was around $500 + $2800 for the permit

If it’s smaller then you do not have to worry about getting the permit and should cost under $500
