    Its my neighbors magnolia tree and she just wants it removed and hauled off, someone else is grinding out the stump. How much should I charge her for just cutting down and hauling off? Yes Im insured with 1 million of liability. I need to let her know by tomorrow night. Thanks

    Have you ever cut trees before, if so then you should know how much time it would take to do the job, so charge your hourly rate plus dumping fees,

    I have experience but for personal property or family, never for a paying customer. What would you charge for that tree?

    Would you like me to just bid the job for you, shoot let me run your business for you while im at it. Sorry, if you do have the experience then you should have no problem, this is a small job, again figure your hourly rate, and cut a few bucks off since its right next door for one and helping freinds out is always good.
