What should I charge?

I cut this tree/hedge to the surface today and hauled it off and wondered what would be a good price to charge for it. I'm not too sure, so I would like to hear a few opinions. It took less than an hour. Thanks.

Why did it take almost an hour, I could have cut it loaded it on my truck and unloaded into my burn pile in less than 5 minutes.

Everyones price quotes seems fair.

No offense but almost a hour on that tree cutting it down?

Define less than a hour...

$75 for a 10 ft twig people would laugh at you here and just make a bonfire out of it.

The tree/hedge alone took about 10-15 mins. Like I said, I had other work to do on that property.
