    What to charge for triming 300 feet of cedar hedges about 8 feet high . They need some cleaning up on the edges and about 4" off the top. I was thinking about 40 cents per foot . Should be about 3 - 3.5 hours at .

    Do you have a pole mount hedge trimmer or going to do the ladder routine? With ladder I am guessing a bit under price, With pole hedge trimmer a little low I would think. Only works out to $120.00 or $40.00 an hour, so by the time of dump fee, labor, gas to get there and do the work you might need to bump it up to .70 or .75 a foot. Can you post pic of it?

    $.40 per foot at 300 feet = $120 for 3- 3.5 hours of work????? Not worth it imo. I would charge a minimum of $210 and try to get closer to about $320.
