    Work is work--- How much do you need an hour. How ever long the work takes times your hourly rate.

    For pruning, I figure how long it will take me + haul-off. I usually add a little time to my estimate in case it takes a little longer than expected.

    For mowing, I figure about $60 an hour depending on how much walking there is. If it's all riding I may go as low as $40 an acre if there are more than 3 acres.
