Taking on the job without enough experience and knowledge on how much to charge may be a disaster in the making.

All i was asking for is a bid. What would you guys charge. I have lots of time and experince with chainsaws and what not. Not going to start something saying i have more exp than this guy or that guy. Just cut oak and hardwood for personal use. I have a guy thats going to give me a price tommrow and tell me what he would charge. Seeing he owns his own tree company. Sometimes prices vary. I own my own plowing company. If i charge 50$ for a driveway. It might go for 100$ in new york. Some places just have higher rates and maybe i would be better asking a local guy cause state to state the price margin can vary alot.

if I don't have to take anything off the property I think I would do it for 600-800. I know i could get it done in a day, but if I have to haul it away its going to be in the 1200-1500 range.

if he don't care about driving on the lawn and a little tree damage I would be ready to hook a hung tree with a truck and yank it out using a tow strap. Those trees arn't big enough to be a big danger doing that. just make sure the straps are longer than the tree

I tree service for this one couple took out all the trees in the red area, removed everything, and ground up the stumps for $1000. I about fell over dead once I heard they did it for that cheap. They have nice equipment too.
