    I have referred at least 3 tree removals and 4 stump grindings all to one guy....he bids and gets half the jobs...is it my right to get a cut of the proceeds since I'm referring him to my customers????

    Sure, if that was the deal that was discussed between the 2 of you. Has he referred anybody to you? Or are you just being a nice guy and getting him some work when you happen to come across it? Many variables here. You need to talk to him about it and see if you can work out a deal. But don't expect him to automatically give you a finder's fee.

    Have the guy give you the bid, add your cut then you quote the customer.

    check your general liablility about this. mine dont allow me to sub out work. if i give the price to the customer, collect the $$$$, then i subbed it out. and im in trouble if something happens. generla liability for a lawn care provider is much different than that for a tree man.
