    I would be more in the 1200$ range but we use bucket trucks and would have a bobcat there.

    I dont do any tree jobs without a bucket truck enless its 10ft tall. hahah The bobcat goes because we dont cut the tree in logs because my friend owns a firewood business and uses logs and runs its threw his processor.

    i know here 1200 for one tree is high. i mostly let the tree people do the tree work. but just had a 55 foot pine tree taken out near the house and power line for 395 dollars. and yes these are licensed and insured company. but with out seeing the tree it hard to give a price
