    Mcclain, how tall and wide are they? I know im my area the price varies greatly. Anywhere from almost free to 5 dollars a bush for small, some charge a dollar a foot, our big LCO charges like 5 bucks for an average size to 10-15 if he has to use a ladder. I would hate to know I had over half a mile of them things to trim, it would not be cheap. Without seeing them would be hard for me to say. Also do you have to haul them off or do they have on site dumping or pickup? That would be one monster pile of debri to have to haul off.

    I put the shrubs in the dumpster, too. Wait, did you say shrubs or scrubs? Oh I guess it doesn't even matter.

    Sheshovel my dear, I was not talking about me, I was talking about my competetion. We have a LOT of overnight wonders that will do them for almost free. I had one I quoted 375 on recently and was scared I might be to low and they got someone to do them for 45!
