    You'd do better off getting a generally feel for pricing from the guys in your own area. Pricing varies wildly throughout the country. Where is Cooray anyway?

    Pruning/Hedgeing-If I'm not using a ladder, it's $45-55/hr
    Weed Control-$25/gal for spot application
    Clean-ups-$100/hr

    If I have to dispose of any material there is an additional charge. Prices vary by area and are usually dependent on what the market will support.

    Is that solo or do you have a helper or crew?
