• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

Pricing palm tree pruning

I just did eight 12-15’ -ers and five 6’-ers.

What would you charge? Used a ladder for the taller ones.

I would be at $60 a piece for the taller palms (trimmed with my polesaw which gets me about 18 feet up... more if I still needed to use a ladder assuming I took the job at all which I often don't for taller palms, not worth the risk as my business focus is on mowing, not tree trimming)........$20 to $40 a piece for the short ones depending on how much is coming off of them. Plus $40 to dispose of the fronds if the customer doesn't want me to leave it curbside for the weekly trash pickup to take.

Those are my general prices that make it worth my time in my area...your mileage may varyThumbs Up

Dawson is right. if palms aren't too common in your area then you can easily get away with $60. My brother and I made a killing with palm pruning since we live by the beach. Just make sure you take safety precautions when pruning. Id recommends getting a Fiskars pole saw, and a regular saw. they help out very well with the palms
