Around here, the going rate is about $55 per hour for chainsaw work if no climbing is needed.

dont give it away. charge a fair buck and keep the prices at a fair level for qualified, dangerous work. I shoot for $60 an hour if I dont leave the ground, $70 if I am aerial. a bit more dangerous should be a bit more expensive I figure. basic shrib pruning and such I go for $55 an hour, plus a disposal charge for the waste.
