As Jim said, there are quite a few variables. Is this the tubular tower, 
(like a couple of pipes nested)?
On the positive side, getting it out of the ground is going to be a lot 
easier than one set in concrete.

IF and I have to emphasize the *IF* this is the tubular, crank up and 
tilt over, then the dismantling is *relatively* easy and I have to 
emphasize "relatively" this time. IOW it's still a lot of work and 
should be performed by some one who is knowledgeable about the 
installation.  Even a regular crank up and tilt over with a "dirt base" 
is *relatively* easy compared to one set in concrete.  I think a dirt 
base on one this size is a bit unusual.

Even with the tower sections nested (how many sections?) it's still 
fairly long and heavy meaning transportation might be a problem.

All of these things have an impact on what people  are willing to pay.
