    A customer has a 15' high dead white pine to be removed.

    I told her $75 this week, $50 in Jan. or Feb.

    It's near the Walmart so even in Jan I could combine it with a shopping trip.

    About 1 hour work.

    Anyone else give different prices for the same service at different times of the year?

    I would not have a problem with seasonal pricing. I would have charged more than that for tree removal. When I did tree removal or trimming I always scheduled it for fall. Nobody seemed to mind.

    Why charge a different price? Has your overhead decreased during that time??
