    Be careful in this area. Check insurance foremost and make sure you are clear on what your doing. Its not all the same unless you are just clipping hedges. Flowering trees and shrubs have different pruning requirements then deciduous trees and evergreens. Check Gardening How-To Jan/Feb 2004 for more specifics on flowering shrubs. Also, there are different styles of pruning for specific results-- inside-out, vase, ect. so research b4 you jump in. Time is also a factor, just ask someone who has pruned an old crabapple as opposed to opening up a cherry. start small if you never have done this and read up on the subject.

    There really are no prices that are concrete in pruning. It all depends on the trees and shurbs,size what type, ect. just like the thread above said if you do not have much experence in pruning becareful because someones flowering tree or shurbs value can be hard on your pocket book. go to the bookstore and get yourself a good book on this subject and you will learn alot and once you learn you will be able to price accordingly..
