I start with an hourly or half day or day rate in my head (never sharing that with the client), then if it's awesome work that our climbers will love (deadwooding a deodar cedar that hasn't been pruned in a decade!) then I'll discount the price a little (15%?) to book a sweet job- then if there's hazards then the price gets bumped up, if it's crap work we don't want (palms, bamboo, vines) it gets bumped more, and if it's specialty work that very few people can compete with (airspade work, trunk injections, cabling/propping/bracing) then the price get bumped even higher.
There's more to it of course, but that's the basic gist!
