    Never have trimmed any type of palm before but I can say in the situation I would figure up how many hours it was going to take me and charge $60 to $70 per hour for myself to be there. Guess you have to look at the market your in and the going hourly rate. Maybe someone in your area could help further. Good luck with that on here though..

    Going rate in my area is $25.00 to $40.00 per tree depending on amout to be trimmed off.

    We sub them for other LS companies for around $15-20, it depends on how much growth and location... but I do it with a 40 foot bucket truck. I would guess around @$25 if you do it with ladders.

    I always go by hieght and how many rows 20 to 50 each is about right.
