Thanks to some helpfull advice on this site i looked for and found me a new employe instead of me trying to do my tree jobs. He has 5 years experiece in tree trimming and removal and was formely employed by a naboring city for the same services. I had been offered several tree triming jobs and removals but i didnt have the experience. He has tons of refrences of whom i have checked. He just doesnt have the equipment and transportation, I found him by a friend who was having his tree removed. What would be the best way of paying him considering that i provide all the equipment and transportation to the site. I have seen the latest job he did and i was impressed. the tree was about 30 feet high. should i pay him by the hour or should i bid and pay him a percentage.
