What to charge for Sub Contracting

What is the going % rate for sub contracting out a job? The job was estimated at $3500. I'm new at this and do not want to be taken advantage of due to my inexperience. Does the type of work that is performed determine the % I get when subbing work out?

I'm the contractor. The job consists of planting (2) large trees and removing a few tree stumps along with yard cleanup.

Yes, I am helping with the project. 20% - 25% is what I figured. It's a learning experience. I don't know if he figured "ME" into the equation when the proposal was made. The orginal estimate given was $10k and the sub stated that he would give me $1600. Not enough uhh.

The contractor usually pays the sub-contractor
