Id have about 20$ in gas at max and maybe 200$ in labor. I could have it done in a 10 hour day. Haha ill let u know how it goes then u guys can judge my skills from this job lol

I wouldn't discount much
You be going in the hole if you price 900 for 30 trees

I must miss something how big are these trees

$2250. You're going to go through about 5 chains at $25 each, a gallon of bar oil, gas, all that. Don't bid $1000, that's just plain crazy.

Going thru 5 chains on those little trees?
You do know you can sharpen chains, don't you?

No problem. TBH I believe the OP was in over his head from the start. I often wonder what happens to some members that start threads like this and suddenly disappear.

I suppose that the OP sent you a PM about his progress on this bid/job since the last reply was 4-14-14?.
