Pic doesnt really tell alot. I would charge $300 at bare minimum. watch the pressure points when cutting. Cut one of those branches holding the weight back and the rest will roll over to take your head off. If you know nothing about cutting trees then I recommend you either pass on it, sub it out and bring an experienced guy for the day and you be the "helper"

How do you feel the job went?

How long did it actually take and would you have done anything differently if you could do it again?

it took me 9 hours total.. thats including driving to and from the job site along with 2 trips to the dump. if i could have done anything differently i would have made sure to bring a back up chain. the one i had got pretty dull half way through. probably could have saved me an hour in cutting time. probably would have gotten somebody to help me too. it all worked out though cause i just got a $4000 job from this one by referral. so now i have a little better idea of what im doing on this one..
