How much soil & man hours needed

Hey guys,
Thank you very much for the help I've been getting from this forum. It has helped tremendously. I need your help please.

I have a big project to bid on. This is the largest project thus far. This is for a new facility. The plants will cost me $32,000; 139 trees, and 1,942 shrubs to plant.

I calculated the mulch to be around 74 cubic yards. I need help to calculate the amount of soil needed to plant the trees and shrubs.

The trees are in 30-45gallons which are about 3'x3', and the shrubs are in 3gallons to 7gallons which are about 10''x10'' and 14''x14'' respectively.

How would you calculate the amount of soil needed, and how long do you think it will take to plant 12foot tree with one man on an Auger and another on a tree boom.

Thanks guys
