I remember my first bucket job was at a new company and it was the removal of a silver maple of similar stature in a back yard with 4 fences in the way, 2 garages, and a bunch of landscaping on either side. Oh, and one of the garages was really a wooden frame with a tarp roof.

We had 4 guys on the job and it took us 2 and a half days!!!

love

Its hard to judge by pics but I don't see 2 days for 5 guys.

I kinda think 5 guys is a waste of manpower in tight area's like that, maybe they do ok.

I just dont see 2 days.

yeah 4 would be perfect, 3 would be doable but when you have 5 guys and its slow you keep em busy. he had 5k on the tree so it was bid for that anyway

I could never get 5k for that tree around here, not in my wildest dreams.

In our market that tree would be about a $1800.00 removal. Thats why it would be a 1 day removal with 3 guys. We'd hump, but we would get it done.

I agree at first glance it might not seem to be that much, but look the pics over carefully it's a good sized tree and lots of obstacles. The price your old boss got seems to be good though, I haven't seen or heard of any trees going for that price around here. I've seen a six thousand dollar tree that was bid but hasn't been done yet, and I don't know that I'd do it for six grand. Good for them looks like a nice job.

No doubt in my mind that's a fair price. We got a lowballer in our area though, big company and if they know I've bid on it the dude will just eat it and bid low to make me look like a joke. Not to happy about that.

And I agree 10 hour day three guys? No use even arguing that on a internet forum.

When you run three crews you can eat it for a day or two to try and keep a guy like me down and not suffer, I'm not in a position or willing to do that.

No offense but no one can say that from pics over the internet. If Willie says it's a hard removal I take his word for it, search SOTC's posts.

Wouldn't touch it without a crane. If a crane and loader are used I think that a 3 man crew could get that tree finished in justa few hours, No problem.
