£3k and that was 19 years ago, 2 weeks for 3-4 guys.  

  After that I think the most has been about a grand.

£1200 for a days work on Kew green finished at 3 thanks to a cheeky stunt fell and some large snatches ... one of those jobs I’d priced by photos and the tree was over a 3 story house , driving over Kew bridge I saw it in the flesh for the first time and thought wtf have I done! Went all smooth though. .. there next quote was 3k !
G man on the stick, happy days !

Think the most profitable job I ever did was days stump grinding , mate had rigged his big Vermeer with a kubota engine out of a chipper after the original had blown, 70 stumps at £30 stump did the lot in one pass then dropped the dozer blade and back filled in the second pass , done and machine returned by 4.

I can regrettably beat that. I did a job for £1300, later discovered the other quotes were over £4000.

I remember that big redwood you dropped but I’m pretty sure that stayed there.
