Customer should have a highly-qualified tree company inspect the problem possibly sending samples of the tree and soil to a lab for analysis.

Also be sure to call you county extension agent for a look see and possibly send to the university extension horticulture lab. IFAS--your tax dollars at work.

There are plenty of young, hungry attorneys in Florida--happy to take 33 percent of a good settlement.

Customer should feel free to call Better Business Bureau, Angie's list, Chamber of Commerce, and the Department of Agriculture--pesticide misapplication inspector. Find out if the guy who applied the herbicides was licensed, working here legally, applied when the temp was too high legally, or wind was too strong legally. Did he read the label? Was he dizzy, light-headed, or affected mentally by the chemicals because he was not given or wearing proper personal safety equipment.

Mighty peculiar that too much rain would fall on one side of the tree and not on the other side.
As usual many great suggestion. I will focus on two.

1st: The customer did go on line, AFTER being screwed of course. She tells me there is a lot of complains. Next time I go up against TG/CL I will be sure tell that. I am sure the BBB has many as well.

2nd: the money back Guarantee I didn't know about. If nothing else that might be some satisfaction. Sometimes a Little win goes a long way. The replacement cost wasn't unreasonable and I pretty sure this lady will rethink suing and move on. I had a out board motor stolen 3 weeks ago and I am just starting to clam down. Last week I want to kill who ever and this week I am glad I don't have to live with that. But I am still mad as Hell. Time heals all things.


it is one thing to do a off label applications. It is total stupidity to post it on the world wide web and expect people to approve.
