« on: April 09, 2022, 05:32:42 PM »
20 large oak trees this weekend here.I was at customsawyers project this weekend and could not be with my crew. there is only 2 but they are good but I kept my phone in my pocket all day. all we had to do was drop them with the help of his excavator . I called my guys when I got home and was told ,glad you sent the 500 I with the 36 in bar. I ask how long ,I thought most of the day and was told just over 2 hrs . They made 100 bucks an hr.Most days are not like this and they know but I have good men and take care of them when I can.

If Iím reading this right your 2 guys dropped 20 large trees for $200 and you thought it would take longer? Prices sure differ from where I am and where you are. You are working too cheap.

What is considered a large oak ? Around here it would be around 36" and 100 feet high .
