    those trees are like tooth picks on the top they shouldn't take to much to cut up. im going to cut the logs into 2-3 foot logs and stack them in the ditch. I do asphalt for a living, but this is one of my plowing accounts and he wants me to take down these trees. I think $1500 is a lot of money or but I may be under estimating myself.. how long would u expect this to take with me and another guy. thanks guys

    That's not the problem. These trees aren't going to fall like an oak. They're just going to snap once you cut 3/4 off the way through.

    Without knowing your experience level and weather or not your carrying any insurance for this type of work I believe you would be better off subbing the job out to someone else and charge a slight margin for the job.
    Taking on the job without enough experience and knowledge on how much to charge may be a disaster in the making.
