i don't know how you priced the job, but i would cut the two pines at the base, and rent a 12" chipper and chip them whole, same with the bushes and be done very fast. I would try to line some other chipping jobs before i do this one that way you can get a whole day of work and maximize your money. save yourself a lot of time by not having to cut the branches off at all!
