    What is a good amount too charge for shrub removal (medium to large) or is an hourly rate best to stick with?

    Remember to charge for your hauling and dump fees. Also, you need to tack THIS time onto the job, as well.

    Go by the hour because you can run in to some problems. give your customer an estimated time.

    I go by each bush or shrub. I charge 30-45 per items. I use a come-a-long and my truck hitch. We pulled 7 one time in 2 hours.... It works great.
