    customer wants 14 trees taken out. all of them are around 10 inches in diameter. they also want most of the roots out too. should i rent a stump grinder. would that work? also need to remove 15 bushes, most are small. i was thinking of around $1500.... any and all ideas on price would be appreciated.

    How tall are the tree's ? Are you renting a chipper also ? I would say $600. per tree. After hauling, chipping and stump grinding.

    don't really know what kind of trees they are... they are real bushy with little red berries on them.

    The stump grinder turns the stump into chips. It looks like a trencher with a big blade on it. If the bushes are only 10 feet tall then maybe $250 per bush.
