    I have a customer who wants 6 bushes dug up and hauled away. I'm not sure how long the work will take, therefore, not sure how much to charge. The bushes are roughly 5 foot tall and 5 foot in diameter. I was thinking about charging a flat rate per bush.

    How do you all charge on such jobs?

    Are you taking out the stump as well or just cutting it flush to the ground? Id say charge him $25-$50 per tree and charge for hauling away debris if you just drop and haul and add another 20 per tree to pop the stump

    Yeah, he wants the stumps completely removed. If not dug out, pulled out with the truck.
