    What do you guys usually charge to plant trees, im talking small 10-15gal bucket trees. Im charging $50 a tree for labor. Ive gotten as much as $75 before, and im just trying to see what everyone else charges, to see what the going rate is.

    Thanx!

    Be sure to charge enough to go back a second day and soak them in again. Irrigation don't count for soaking for root balls that big. If anyone bawlks at the price just assure them a growing tree is more valuable than a brown one.
