    I have a client asking me to trim some live oaks, actually it will help me when I mow. They want them trimed to where you can walk under them. The trees are about 12 to 15 feet tall and there are 3 of them. Whats the going rate on triming trees? Per tree?

    Can you reach those branches from the groung? if not, you may have to climb the tree (only if you are experienced). Tree Care business are charging around $50 per hour/ man

    Thanks for the response. Yes, I can reach the limbs from the ground with a chainsaw. I might need a ladder for a few limbs. I was thinking $30 to $50 an hour doing it all myself. The limbs go out about 20 feet from the trunks, so they are nice size live oaks.
