    I got a set of forks for my skid yesterday so this might make the digging go a little quicker.

    Yeah that's a good price you make some good profit on that. Get 1 helper it should take a day or day and a half if you hand dig them. You'll be tired but have some money in your pocket.

    A day or day and half to dig 8 holes man you must be a slow digger

    4 hrs to dig the holes by hand

    I wasnt talking about digging only. Was talking about everything. Digging the holes, planting the trees, backfilling the trees, mulching the trees and also he might have to pick up the trees also. Doing all that with 8-10 ft trees would take me and a guy at least a day or day and a half. I don't mess around either.
