6-8hunned for both trees?! that's nut's. I just cut down and hauled 6 trees the biggest one was 10inches for 200$ It only took me 2 and a half hours.

I wouldn't touch a tree that big for less than 600$ each, to much to go wrong if your aren't experienced enough to tackle it correctly.

for trees, the liability of them dont make it worth touching for cheap

on the plus side you get enough of them start cutting them up and sell them for firewood in the winter, or burn them yourself
cost of the chains would be more than renting a skid steer for half a day

twenty years in the business I have never used a "handful of chains" but I guess "just maybe" he might.

I have to agree, In the 5 years of seriously doing this I have used chains maybe 2-3 times for pulling big stuck things out. If I want to get bushes out I just use the winch.

That's impressive I have to say, but I don't think the OP has that kind of experience if he was asking how to take those bushes out and how much to charge. I'm not sayin but I'm just sayin.
