I showed up today at my largest account and they had been nailed by a thunderstorm Tuesday night. Its about 15 acres and lots of huge trees. Anyway, there were limbs down everywhere and 4 or 5 trees also had big limbs broken and hanging. Called the secretary who takes care of the property (owner lives in Europe for the last 5 years) and she told me to clean it all up and charge her "whatever". I was sweating getting off my cutting schedule at this point and was working solo today. So I busted butt hard on the chainsaw for 7.5 hours and cleaned it all up and had to climb 3 trees to get hangers. When complete I had my 16' trailer stuffed with limbs and every bit of 10 feet high. So here is my question: I don't really do much storm cleanup and never do tree work by the hour. Since I was alone and had a schedule to make up I pushed harder than I normally would ever expect someone to work. No breaks for anything but water. To top it all off it was 95 degrees in the shade and very humid. So what is a fair price? I was thinking 50 an hour, my wife says 60. I think that any of the trees crews I know would have bid it at 7 or 8 hundred. All input is appreciated. Also, in our county you cant burn and dump fee is $95 for a 16' trailer. However, I can take it out to my father-in-law's property the next county over and dump it in his burn-pile. Any rule of thumb on whether you would pocket the dump fee, or pass all or some of that savings to the customer?
