    Looking for help on bidding. Customer wants me to pull some Juniper roots and another area of Junipers. She also wants 2 grown Pyracantha's next to her house removed and a little area full of small Pyracantha's removed.

    From what I understand the remove the Juniper roots it's just sweat and muscle digging them out with a pick axe or pulling out with a truck or something. The full grown ones, not sure, I guess just hack away until down to the roots then same thing. The Pyracantha's no idea.

    Appreciate any opinions on how to price this.

    They have shallow root system... they will come up very quick w/ a pick axe... probably less than 1.5 man hours.

    To save your back....Wrap a sling or chain around the base and pull them out with a truck or tractor. :weightlifter:

    I just use my skid steer w/ a set of forks & they rip right out in seconds.
