    When you find out how messy spraying a mature tree is and how much tree sprayer's and root injection equipment cost's, i'll bet you won't be low-balling. The good new's is, in the North-East, people are more likely to value tree's, so you might find a market.

    mostly depends on product cost. when im spraying something like crabapples for scab , i would like to be getting atleast 15 or 20 dollars per tree. otherwise its not worth it.
