    Something with your numbers doesn't add up. Check them and re-post. Your prices are way high. You sure the acreage? Figure how many hours it will take to do each one. Then, how much per hour do you charge...

    Not sure here either, but you will have to figure trimming time.
    I'm getting a range here from $20 to $100 / acre...?
