    well been getting more calls for tree work and machine/dirt work.
    lady wants a good bit of work done on her 3acre property. priority is to remove this large Water Oak and the Pecan next to it. the oak is growing over and through the pecan.

    Plan is to de-limb the trees then drop the trunks.the water oak is split from the ground about 20ft up. Due to the integrity of the oak, we will bring in a 60ft lift to delimb the trees. (i willl be keeping the pecan trunk) Pretty decent access to the yard. plus two smaller damaged tress/stumps to remove in the front.

    high potential for a lot of more work in this area. will be hauling debris away in my 23yd dump trailer to a site about 5miles away. i want to price fair. i know what i have to make to cover overhead. just dont want to sell company short or price myslef way out the ballpark.

    pics of the water oak and pecan.

    Im not a big fan of lifts either, but they will do the job untill my work load will cause me to buy a bucket truck.

    Plan of attack is to bring the lift in and delimb both trees first. That way i only pay for a 4hr rental.
