    (12) 7' Leyland Cypress = $310 each retail (I get 15% off) - I know that's expensive. The stuff is not grown around here, prices are crazy.

    Labor? Straight forward job on a flat parcel, sandy soil.

    Should I charge price per tree or an hourly rate?

    I was considering $75 / tree?

    + Soil improvement material per each hole?

    How does everyone price this work?

    Thank you, CCL

    You cant afford to offer them at that price unless you are very clear about no warranty and get it in writing. There is a reason why people charge 2-3 times the cost of the plant.
