Little tree removal job I did today

Little tree removal job this AM. Exclusive gated golf course community. Owner is removing the two trees & all plants around trees & lava rock. Going to remove the island also and put in a palm tree & grass.

Called me yesterday wanting a quote to remove the two trees. Got there and he wanted a price to remove everything. I quoted my hourly rate+hauling debris away+stump grinder rental. He wanted a "fixed" price instead and I quoted him $2,500.

Then he wanted a quote just to remove the two trees & I said $450. He called me shortly there after & hired me to remove trees. Brought my big ole 18' tandem & backed up to trees and used my Stihl Kombi 110R & dropped most of the limbs directly into the trailer.

Job took 1.45 hours. Another (1) hr in driving, So 2.45 hrs total. easy $ and nice lil pile of firewood I'll use this fall.

Stihl Kombi System
028 Super, 066 Chainsaws, PP 800 Pole Saw
F-150, F-350 Trucks
Ariens Rear Tine Tiller
(6) Trailers:
5x12, 6x12, 6x14, 8x16, 7x18, 6x22
Asus Transformer Infinity TY700 Tablet
Galaxy S3

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.
