    Last year i was doing a job that was roughly 3 acres, slipt into 3 diff sections so its about 1 acre per section with a few trees here and there. It took me about 2.5 hours to cut trim and blow. I was getting $175 per cut which from my understanding was a low bid because i heard the guys who did it the year before got $250 per cut. Now my question is does that pricing sound right to you?? whats your input?

    70 bucks an hour isn't that shabby IMO...

    If your making money at it than $175 is okay. Don't let other companies set your prices alot of times you can still make good money at a price way lower than some of the big boys

    How many guys on the job? Really as stated above if you are making money (profit) then I would not worry, keep the same price and keep the customer. Just my 2 cents

    I agree, I'd probably do it for that.
