Just wrote a reply but it didn't work so here's the short version. Yardage doesn't seem too crazy to me a tri axle of dirt can get lost in a hole that size fast. Unless the guys a scam artist and is trying to pull one over on you it's really easy to get the yardage needed very accurately just cubic ft to yrds. No idea on pricing I work in construction right now but never do any of the buying just the spreading and digging :) but doesn't seem too far off that's a lot of trucks. One way to save money would be to fill halfway with straight fill and the rest 50/50 depending on quality that should be more then enough to grow a few trees.

A triaxle disappears fast.  I hid 150 loads in 1 acre and still need more.

try 33% as compaction.  and yes a truckload is nothing. I have 4000 hours of big excavator experience and 20-30 loads don't get you that far.
