    Don't know where you are in the country but I had a garden clearance, a cherry tree seriously chopped back, removed a fir tree, removed a clematis and supplied and installed a new fence - we are in london, it was a day's work and cost 240. They also took away all the rubbish - it was a lot of work so I think your quote is quite a lot HTH

    Well maxiscot I doubt if the people you employed paid tax or paid for the rubbish from your property to be disposed of properly, more likely it was dumped on the side of a quiet road.

    In answer to ribenagirl if the person you are employing is a qualified arborist then 150 is reasonable, it cost us 60 for 10 conifers to be trimmed by about 2 ft last year, it took them 25 mins

    I probably should have added (a) that we're near Birmingham and (b) that they think it will take them 20 minutes to do the conifers and 1 /2 hours to do the tree. The guy is a qualified tree surgeon. We have tried to get other quotes but noone seems to want to come out, which is why we thought it must be a smallish job and therefore 150 felt like a lot.

    I am going to ring the guy back and see if he'll haggle down any? Many thanks for your help, it's appreciated x
