Hi all, I had one of my customers contact me today about removing a couple of downed trees on his property. He wants to know what it would cost to cut it up. I can dispose of it whatever way i wish. Im thinking im going to take the wood for the fire pit next summer. My question is what would you think would be the best way to charge for this? by the job? hour? This would be my first tree job. Any help would be appreciated! Thank You all! I have included pics btw!

Only seeing what's in the pics $1500 everything but the stump, $2700 everything.

Where are you located? Do you have saws, a dump, a chipper etc?

North Jersey! I just spoke with my brother who is an arborist and has everything I need including the stump grinder! We went to look at it in person together! We are going to work together on it!

I have a saw but not big enough for that tree! My brother has much bigger ones to cut through that!

I would haul that stump since its already out of the ground and could probably cut the whole thing with my 16" husky. I find this whole thread kinda funny since your brother is an arborist. What would he charge? Lol

His company would charge around $4500. This would be a side job!

Oh I won't! This is also one of my regular clients! He is probably going to crap himself when I give him the price tomorrow lol! But it is what it is! I am not going to lowball just to get the job! Plus the customer is a lawyer so I know he can't say that he doesn't have the cash! The tree is hanging over the neighbors property too so those people want it gone yesterday! Since he's a regular mowing client it may help me land the job being that we already have an existing buisness relationship! He's due for a clean up too lol. This could be good money! Keeping my fingers crossed!

A fallen tree is also an insurance job if he claims it, so he shouldn't have to pay anything out of pocket, other than his deductible.

Wrong. Most insurance companies only pay to have the portion of a tree that is on the home. Not the whole tree. 99% of homeowners dont know this.

The tree is not on his house. It fell over and hangs over the neighbors yard! No danger to doing any damage to homes!
