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.
