    @piney.I understand that. I wasn't trying to be smart or anything like that. I get that everyone has different prices that they charge. Maybe I'm wrong about the price.

    Trees get a WHOLE LOT BIGGER after they're lying on the ground...heavier and more awkward, too.

    that tree is tiny man. i'd say $50 max. probably take less than 15-30min to cut it down, cut it in half, cut the long branches off, and drag it to the curb.

    well guys, I told her 75 and offered to go ahead throw it on my trailer and take it away for her. She said no thanks and that she would do it herself, I said okay thanks for the offer and told her to have a nice day.

    Oh well you win some you loose some
