I recently did a Pruning / trimming job for a homeowners assoc. It involved cutting lower limbs ( chain saw )and branches off about 20 trees and hauling off to the landfill. It took about 10 hours over two days with a two man crew. We charged them $800. This job was above our normal Turf maintenance duties so was billed seperate. The Assoc. felt like we gouged them and could not believe we should make $70 hour ( for a two man crew )to do tree work in wich no climbing was involved. Was this too much ? Is $35 per manhour high for tree work ? Please give your opinion and rates you bill for similar work. Thanks !
