Dimension of a tree trim

How do you guys bid tree trim jobs? We bid man hours plus cyd if it's a standard trim away from a roof. A national told us they want dimensions "like 1x3 " they said. I explained how branches are three dimensional and you can't measure them in square footage but they wouldn't budge. Wtf?

Cubicle minds.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

I just put how long it is and how many CYD. I really don't have time to measure the actual diameter if they start with needing the diameter, I tell them to give it to somebody else.
One time I bid to cut down a tree that was rubbing against the house. 12 ft high with 3 branches of the same height. Put that and the cubic yards. They asked 2 times what is the diameter of every branch? My answer was the next guy can tell you. lol

I've actually bid a trim job like this mostly to be a [email protected]#$. I even calculated every other limb a cyd of debris. They accepted my bid and approved 30 days later lol.

I told her there were about 8, 8' long branches that were 2" in diameter. So she came up with 2x2x8. Which I realize now is like 1 CYD. Oops. Oh well, it won't be a difficult job whatsoever. Probably 15 minutes.
