I was supposed to remove the stumps on crepes but didn't have enough time to dig em out. I can usually get em out in one hour.

Really like using dump trailer for tree limbs etc. Now we can be out of recycle place in 5 minutes. No waiting I for pull and saves $25.

Raking up the moss they cut out.....about 60 gallons. We trimmed the tree. We had cones out on street because some dropped close to traffic. Two guys on ground made sure no cars coming.
