New to the business. Some lady wants a tree just like her other ones (evergreen of some sort? i think ), its 4-5 feet tall, what would you you charge to put one in???...her are some pices...how much should it cost me to buy it too?
From what I've gathered and read(been reading up on this stuff), you can't just dig a hole and throw it in the ground. There's quite a bit more to it than that if you want the tree to live and grow healthy.
Do you have a nursery or tree farm nearby? You could at least find out what they'd charge you, and give you some tips on planting it.
Just be careful. You don't want to have to buy the tree twice if it dies due to improper planting.
My standard charge for tree placement is 20% over my cost plus $65.00 per hour for excavation plus all necessary soil amendments.
Where I live rock is a huge problem and to excavate a proper hole a minimum of 2.5X the size of the root ball may take up to four hours.
