a customer of mine asked her to cut down a medium sized cedar tree in her front yard. i know she would agree to pay me if i did charge her for it but i still havn't mentioned to her that i will be charging her for it.

would you and how much would you charge for this tiny job?

i do need to consider hauling it away and disposal....

How much will disposal cost you? Or, are you bringing it home for a future bonfire? Either way, you need to be paid for it. Around here, bringing anything to the dump costs a minimum of 15 bucks for anything up to a half-ton.
Make a mailbox post out of it, and get someone else to pay for the cedar log. payup

Why wouldnt you get paid for it?/

Why wouldn't you charge for it? If she is a customer she knows that you do this for a living and would expect to be charged.
