How much to charge for fallen tree limb removal?

I recently done a bid on a fallen tree limb removal. The bid was $75 for a Bradford Pear that had a limb completely split off of the main trunk. Limb was about 20 feet long and 8" at the base. It was inside of a fenced in back yard where I couldn't get my Toro Dingo with root grapple in to. Cost to dispose here is $30/ton (limb wasn't near a ton). I use a 16ft open trailer and would use about 15-$20 in gas round trip.

Given this info, what would you guys bid on this job?
Thanks in advance for any input

Waaaay underbid. If you have to pay to dump that should be a $125 job. Minimum.

Doesn't matter what kind of equipment you run as long as you get the job done correctly and up to par.

Way underbid and I wouldn't have gone to the address the first time if I didn't know I was already going to do the job. I skip right over these calls unless they are current customers.
