View Full Version : Removing 14 Arbovitaes

Bidding a job to remove 3 20' arbos, 11 13' arbos, and heavily prune 9 arbos. The removal ones all have been in the ground at least fifteen years. The base of the shrubs are pretty substantial, but I don't expect much root ball. Just removal, no install. Will be renting kubota mini to remove. Had a question on pricing.

3 large ones $90/ shrub $270.
11 smaller ones $35/ shrub $385.
pruning 9 $15/ shrub $135.
disposal fee $157.50
Equipment fee $236.25
Total $ 1183.75
How does this sound?

I think you'd be really, really lucky to get the job at that price.
Arbs are relatively easy to remove.

I would just winch them over and yank them out and cut them in half and then pull a BG and find a country road...

just kidding on the last part
