    When you say trim do you mean make them all the same height or just take off the outer edges so they are strait?

    Yeah FTS lol! I had someone last year with 2 Holly (sp?) trees about that size, they wanted me to just take off some the sides, make'm look all nice and even. I quoted 400 mostly because the pain in the arse (and the risk).

    For those trees? At least 1,000 bucks for me, mainly because *I* don't want to do them but since you asked :)
    No, it's NOT a fair price and I do not know what a fair price would be for that.

    Yes, I'll even tell the customer that the reason the price is so high is because I don't want to do it (done it before).

    ALOT, especially since you can tell they have the money because of that vehicle in their driveway.

    Lawnboy,we don't charge customers xtra or more just because they have a nice car or nice house.That's not ethical.I charge everyone the same,driving a beat-up car or a BMW.I don't stick it to them cuz they have money it's not right.

    I come up with $475.00
