    6-8hunned for both trees?! that's nut's. I just cut down and hauled 6 trees the biggest one was 10inches for 200$ It only took me 2 and a half hours.

    I wouldn't touch a tree that big for less than 600$ each, to much to go wrong if your aren't experienced enough to tackle it correctly.

    well i am experienced was a climber for 8 years,ground man for 2 wouldn't even bother to do that with these SMALL trees. different areas get different prices. id have a buyer for the wood there to take it away on the spot leaving about 1 load of brush to take away 4 hours max for me yeah ill do it for that amount

    cost of the chains would be more than renting a skid steer for half a day

    twenty years in the business I have never used a "handful of chains" but I guess "just maybe" he might.

    I have to agree, In the 5 years of seriously doing this I have used chains maybe 2-3 times for pulling big stuck things out. If I want to get bushes out I just use the winch.

    That's impressive I have to say, but I don't think the OP has that kind of experience if he was asking how to take those bushes out and how much to charge. I'm not sayin but I'm just sayin. :dancing:
