  7. When I got into tree work twenty years back the going rate, according to The Forestry Commission pricing structure, was Β£650.00 a day for a 3 man crew with a tipper/chipper. Taking inflation into account that figure is now close to.Β£1,250.00 a day for the same crew. When other costs are factored in it's not unreasonable for that firm to be asking for closer to Β£2,000.00 per day. It would probably take a crew of 3 (or more) people who only have a small tipper and chipper best part of a week to remove and dispose of those trees. Possibly longer depending on access, tip sites, and general logistics. Stump grinding will also take some time with those oaks. On that basis I reckon a quote of >Β£10,000.00 isn't unjustified. I think for a job of that scale you might well find a better quote if you find a firm who are heavily invested in the mechanical side of arb, and can turn up and do it in a day/couple of days.
