I'm not in business for myself, so no, I don't have a chipper. My father has a side business (he's a certified arborist) and has a chipper.
Buds were getting big. It'll be an interesting spring to say the least. As warm as it was before this cold snap they were getting big and swelling. Had it stayed that warm for another couple of weeks, I'm sure we would have started seeing leaves.
Winter is a great time to prune, are you just not getting calls? To be honest, I'd rather prune in the winter as opposed to early spring. Makes for a lot less clean-up....
