    customer wants 14 trees taken out. all of them are around 10 inches in diameter. they also want most of the roots out too. should i rent a stump grinder. would that work? also need to remove 15 bushes, most are small. i was thinking of around $1500.... any and all ideas on price would be appreciated.

    How tall are the tree's ? Are you renting a chipper also ? I would say $600. per tree. After hauling, chipping and stump grinding.

    The stump grinder turns the stump into chips. It looks like a trencher with a big blade on it. If the bushes are only 10 feet tall then maybe $250 per bush.
