Digging Up Plants for Profit

Hey guys,

I have a project I'm working on. It's a lot of land clearing. I'm going in and just clearing tons and tons of tangled brazilian pepper and other invasive florida vines with a chainsaw. Then I'm going to probably shred them into compost (because it's a lot to drag out).

Some of the other areas I'm eventually going to be clearing out include TONS of "Macho Fern". She just wants them taken out so she can plant grass since they have expanded so will be easier to take care of.

So obviously, I can just destroy these plants/level it (much quicker), or I can remove them carefully and put them in inexpensive nursery containers for resale (craigslist, flea market?)

Do you guys think it is worth it to remove the plants for resale? I'm still very small, so you have to remember that my time isn't as consumed by other profitable enterprises like some of you who already have jobs lined up for 6+ months.

Let me know if you guys have any experience with this...selling recovered plants on craigslist, etc...


Oh yeah, also, same thing with just compost/mulch/chips you have from jobs (not the pretty stuff from wood, but more from vines, leaves and brush).
