    depends on the travel, and the size of the trees.

    Also, are you chipping shredding, or burning or cutting it up for fire wood?

    Say that it's an average 6-8 ft. All i have to do is carry it from the living room, to my trailer in the driveway...throw a tarp on it and carry it off....all the while, picking up more trees along the way to the dump.

    I'd say between $5 and $10 a tree. around us village will pick it up for free, so it would be a hard sell, but if you don't have that by you, go for it!
