HELP ME with this tree bid please

hey guys doing some side work for this guy he wants every other tree cut down theres about 25-30 of them. There willow trees about 6-12 inch in diameter they are tall about 20-25 feet but super skinny. how should I charge. Don't have to haul anything away can stack all the wood in his back yard. i'm going to need a buddy to help. Should I charge by the hour, or should I try and give him one price. I think it could be done in one day the trees are skinny. im in the Midwest. the rate has to be somewhat decent but I also wont work for nothing. thanks guys

Do you know what you're doing?

If there's no danger of structural damage one day side job id say 1500 with no stump removal

If there's any chance of structure damage, trees getting hung up, etc please call in an arborist

or would I be better giving him a hourly price. I do handy man work for 20-25 $ cash only. I have all my own saws what would be a good hourly price and I have to pay my buddy to help but he can work for 15.00$ a hour.

No hourly price. Give him a set price.
