    First off gross is not profit. Secondly, the OP stated he was wanting to know average hourly labor rate which is comparable to per man; therefore, adding 4 guys into the mix to just to one up another is out of line in this thread. Lastly, however you want to cut it, the guy charged 70ish per man hour on the tree job.
