    Approximately 75ft tall.


    I see 2 guys, 5 hrs to have it on the ground, all the brush piled, and the tree cut into firewood length.

    Am I missing it?

    I'm going with 8 with 2 guys and cutting to firewood. Might get it done in 6 but it's better to be a little high than take a loss.

    What is access like, are you climbing it and limbing it then dropping, are there obstacles around to slow the process down i.e. house, gas tank etc. Can it just be dropped and cleaned up. These are all questions that I ask in my own head when I am bidding a job. So it is hard to tell you what you should price. Hard to judge a job by a photo.

    I can lol I got a call from a reclaiming mine site they wanted price for two acres cut chip and stumps ground but they could not allow access to look at site and specified everything chipped lol. I said ok give me a day to reflect on costs next day she calls. I said mam I'm almost certain we can do those two acres per your specs and restrictions for the tidy sum of 2 million dollars. She said two million dollars are you kidding, I said you want everything chipped 24" down no logs hauled to mill in two weeks. Lady have you priced horizontal grinders lately? I have no idea if the trees are in a pit of mine tailings. Have you priced any excavators lately, My bid mam per your specs and without site access is 100% legitimate bid and yes; I do intend to profit mam :p
