Hi all,

We have been asked to take out a lot of shrubs at a commercial building we maintain. Roughly about 36 boxwoods that are overgrown, and stand about between 4-5 ft tall. The shrubs surround the building on almost all sides. Also have about 4 very large holly bushes, over 7ft tall.

We don't have to haul off site, they will have a dumpster for us.

How much would you charge for a job like this, considering your own set up and manpower.

I am going to try and insert some pics.

You need to call dig safe or the equivalent for your area to locate the gas and electrical lines that enter the building. The locations of those utilities dictate how you remove the plants and the overall cost. If you got the job that is job #1

How do you plan on removing them? Do you have a tractor with a loader or a bobcat?

The other option would be to cut them to the ground and touch them with a stump grinder.

I guess it depends on what equiptment you have available.

For what its worth, if it were me, and all I had to do was pull them and through them in a dumpster on site, I would probably charge about $600.00.
