    Hey guys-

    I am looking for some rates on cutting up some trees. These trees have already fallen and are on the ground. Does anyone know how tree companies price this?

    And before you say, cut them up yourself, I have. These are for a neighbor and I already have done the work. And it was alot of work mind you. I don't want to overcharge, but it was 4 big trees (oak) and 4 smaller ones (various).

    The locations of these trees was poor. Hard to get to and hard to do anything with. I had to stack the logs and limb the trees and remove the branches from the property. Plus wear and tear on my saws and equipment.

    The guy I did the work for apparently got prices from some companies around here and they were pretty up there in price. So any ideas? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Thanks in advance, /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    I dont do it for a living but I am a pretty good tree butcher.
    I usually do it for free. Because I burn firewood.
    But when I charge someone its anywhere from $100-150 per tree depending on difficulty and size cut up and hauled away.And I still keep the wood.
    MMMMM Oak. I wish we had oak around here.
