    Hey gang,
    Today while on a job the customer asked me to remove (cut down) 8 Leland Cypress "trees". Each tree was about 20' tall and roughly 10-15 foot around. The customer had a place on their lot for the debris. She didn't care what the cost, just wanted them gone. Not sure what to charge for the removal.

    THanks for the help.

    Seventy-five dollars a tree?

    My God have you priced those mature trees????? People wanting those to border their property would pay a fortune for those. Rent a backhoe if you don't have one and dig them up. You can dig them up in no time. The customer will be happy cause the stumps will be gone. You can charge her even more and sell the trees as well. This is a win win all the way around and you can make a ton of money.

    I like hot dogs idea if you can pull it off. If not, $95 per. Since you dont have to take debris.
