50% laobr, that is what nurseries do, that is what you should do.

$50/Labor Tree plus tax if required
Add in more detail e.g. Warranty, delivery, etc. to sweeten the appearance.

That is as straight up as you can get and pretty much standard if this is what you are satisfied with profit wise.

I also live in Indiana and from what I was told if you buy something at wholesale (plants & trees) and have a mark up on the product you have to charge the customer sales tax. Due to the fact that the state will recieve more in sales tax after your mark up than when you purchased it from a wholesale co. Except on job materials and labor.

$50 labor on a $100 dollar tree. I would never do that. I wouldn't do it for any less than $100 labor. Closer to $150.
