Wisteria Vine Removal

Got a customer that wants me to give an estimate on removal of some over grown wisteria. Area is about 4 foot wide x 10 foot long.
(maybe longer, not yet sure how far down he wants to go)

Any one had experience taking this stuff out and how to price it?

Spray it with round up, wait a few weeks, once it's good and dead it should come right off, price accordingly, not sure exactly but it shouldn't be terribly expensive, maybe an hour's labor.

If it is a big wisteria one application of gly probably won't kill it. I'd try painting brush killer on as much of the stem as possible, see if that kills it. If it isn't dead before removal it will pop up from the roots like crazy.

Thanks it is a big job, lots of vines mixed in with other weeds and growing every where.

So I think I'll quote him a price for spraying once a week (or 2 weeks) untill dead and then
give him a price for removal. (?)

You might also try (as this works especially well with stubborn plants such as vines) and just for this application, is mixing a double dose of ounces/ gly per gallons of water... Some mix such as 2.5 ounces / gallon of water should hold some power... And yes, a two-application method such as which you described (once every two weeks) should work out well.
