Price it by the hour. I charge $50/hr for tree limbs and brush removal. So when you look at it try to imagine how long it will take and quote him accordingy.

For a typical job I'll say "Yeah looks like this would take 45 min. to clean up so I can clean this all up for you for $40."

The scope of service For a lot of landscape companys includes tree service something you might want to think about. zz4guy is right. take some time and complete the entire job in your head breaking it down in steps. Then add the time up for all the steps it takes to complete the job. do not forget to include the drive time and the time it takes to dump the brush and the cost if any for dumping and the wage for any helpers.
