    If there taxus you better up that price you will be there longer my advice to you is lop them off and grind the stump. Much faster and no digging.

    I just got asked for an estimate on taking out 7 (evergreen bushes) thats not the name but they are round and they stay green. The hill to get to the property is too steep for a skid steer. I am going to bid 325 to cut them down to the ground and then 525 to rip them out. They are 3' high, 3-6' in diam and the base is up to 10" in diam. What do you all think about those prices?
