Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
It is a elderly couple that has a stack of wood that's been their for a few years it seems so I don't think they will want if. I have a log splurged so I will keep firewood worthy material and have a place to dump the rest free.

Any ideas on a price?

What is your estimate on how long this would take you to perform? Any dump fees involved?

I ended up telling her it will be $50 an hour(i estimate 8 hours), $300 for hauling and disposal, if hauled i told her I estimate an additional 5-6 hours labor because we will be cutting up a few trunks that we would otherwise not have to deal with + travel time to dispose. I think it is going to take 3-4 trip to dispose(3-4hrs travel time total).

I figure its going to cost me 10hrs in labor and $100 in gas. It will be a perfect property to take before and after pics for a new website though, and trying to sell reseeding the area i am clearing(she wants to wait until spring ). I am going to meet with her later this week. It is a great opportunity to help an elderly vet, get exposure, make a little money while its slow.

EDIT: ^ this doesn't include my time, i know; so, 26 Total labor hours!
I plan to try and use some for firewood; I should be able to dispose of rest free.
