    Hello,
    I do not do much other than mowing etc. A customer of mine wants me to remove two large bushes , cut down a small tree and trim another bush. What the heck to I charge her? I don't do a lot of this so I do not know. I was thinking around $200, is this high, low, or right?

    You need to take into account your costs IE dump fees, labor hours, fuel, ect... once you get all of these set then you have your overhead then you can base your price on that. at that point you just put what you feel you would like to make in profit for the job if you get this you should be right on.

    Be mindful of what is involved. I have already told my son that if we have to climb a ladder, I recommend the job to someone else. (Tree cutting, Christmas lights etc.) Insurance will not cover certain activities. You happen to fall, your SOL. My .02
