    got kicked off the job

    Simple version. 8K is X amount of hours and equipment. Anything exceeding that estimate should be billed time and material. Contract version is the question.

    Question. Did some one pay you to take this? I’m actually serious. Does the truck run?

    Pushing Pruning Limitations

    Lol. We have a lot of mushroom trees. Two sources that I will consider are: http://www.marshalltrees.com/ http://cherrylake.com/ They have the best roots that I can find. The vitex was outsourced from Gainesville and I had to take a 30 gal pot size to a 15 gallon size to find straight roots...

    Pushing Pruning Limitations

    This Live Oak (Querqus virginana) has been lions tailed for a number of years. There are too many branches with poor branch taper. In an open field you could reduce the upper canopy to push branches back to the interior and increase the dimensions of the existing branches. This tree could be...

    Pushing Pruning Limitations

    I agree with the crown ratio. I really did not want to take the material over the driveway.

    Pushing Pruning Limitations

    Here are pictures of some trees. I only worked on one of them and it had been over 5 years ago. The trees were existing before the home excluding the last one. Example of the final size but lions tailed. Full size hammock of Oaks. 3 live Oaks behind a home of one of my previous customers...

    Pushing Pruning Limitations

    My guess is 3 more years on full closure. I should have listened to you on the upper canopy pruning and I could have mitigated that triple years ago. To be honest, these houses are boring, ugly, and too small for a large tree with low branches. I want the tree, that will eventually be larger...

    Discount on fixed bids?

    I am not a big fan of the bait and switch discounting. I normally do not discount unless i am at fault by either biding too high after completion as others do or extenuating circumstances develop. Everyone gets the same price. My area is unique and they all talk to each other. I do know...

    Pushing Pruning Limitations

    The next crown raising took place to achieve the target hight of the canopy. One disappointing discovery was a double inclusion within the canopy on the driveway side. I was hoping to keep the lower intact but ended up subordinating them both leaving a hole in the canopy over the driveway. I...

    Wound closure is almost complete. Squirrel damage is slowing things down slightly. No decay present.

    Here is a progress report on one of my project trees. The canopy development is balanced and full.

    Decayed White Oak...interested to hear how you would have bid it

    I agree. Pricing should be close. 2 hours with a crane or 6 hours without still should be within 10-20%
