Do any of you guys have experience working/charging insurance companies for burn area clean up or tree clean up in general? I have a few clients who would like a bid for me to clean up all their burned trees from a wildland fire. The clean up is going to be paid for by the insurance company of the landowner who started the fire. It is all old growth Ponderossa pine, big nasty stuff and is non merchantable so it's basically just a cut, pile, and chip process. Might save some logs for firewood but thats about it. It's rough steep country, approximately 50-60 acres on 4 different parcels. The landowner's say the insurance company wants a firm price, I want to be fair, but I want to make some money too. Most of the trees are all hazard trees, lots of widow makers, cat faced, etc. so my fire experience will be priceless. Any suggestions on how to bid something like that? Any ideas on price per acre or any thoughts I should consider? My plan is to go in and fall all the trees, use a self propelled track chipper with a winch to chip and broad cast everything the chipper is cabable of, then forward the logs out and deck. Possibly have my T300 with rotating log grapple and an excavator to help feed the chipper. It's going to be a lot of work, but I think there should be some good money in it, as long as I bid it correctly. Thanks for any help.
