    Shrub/tree removal and grading question


    I have a customer that wants some work done. Here are the numbers.

    He needs 4 flower beds reclaimed.

    1. 15' x 5' with overgrowth and one small tree (3 in diameter) needs removal
    2. 24' x 5' with overgrowth
    3. 21' x 5' with overgrowth 2 Arbos (15') and 9(5' x 6') Chinese Variegated Privets need removal
    4. 10' x 3' with overgrowth


    There are three areas where the customer needs to add top soil

    1. 24' x 15' x 4" with two bushes requiring removal
    2. 21' x 45' x 4" with two magnolia tree (12') requiring removal.
    3. 29' x 10' x 6"

    He also wants 48' of 4' chain link fence removed as well. The fence posts (9)are in concrete.

    I will remove the bushes, trees, and fence using truck, chain and winch. Then haul them off. I will have dirt delivered (22 yds.) and will spread and level with our tractor. What would be your best "guess"timate on this job. I have it like this

    1. $150 dump fees and removal from site
    2. $130 tree removal
    3. $315 bush removal
    4. $140 bed cleanup and weed removal
    5. $600 dirt delivery and spread
    6. $200 for fence removal

    Totaling $1535. Does this look and sound about right?
