    Hey guys

    Ive got a job where I have picked up 2 trees that have already been bought by the customer. I gotta plant them thursday. What would you all estimate for planting and delivering these 2 trees? One is about 10ft tall and the other about 12 I would say. 15 and 25 gallon. I was guessing around 180?

    I always double the price of the tree but so I would say more like 250. Large trees and just awkward and heavy if your not using a bobcat.

    I do not have a bobcat. I am only 18 so it will be done with a shovel, tree spade, and a mattock. I will have a dolly with me to move the trees around. I believed they paid 160 for the 25 gallon and around 99-129 for the 15 gallon. Just trying to make sure I do not over bid or under bid myself.
