I like using a 16' enclosed trailer so I can have a flexible truck that can be a multi function vehicle. Losing an 8' bed for holding trimmings would be too difficult for me. My 16' of trailer and 8' of bed isn't even enough sometimes.

I think I'm the only person on this thread doing holiday lights. I've been doing take downs for the last week. Today the billings for what a two man crew did in a 7.5 hour day was $1205. Take downs are really the best part of holiday lighting work.

OHBA Summit Houston

I'm heading to Houston this Saturday to go to an organics seminar. I do not plan becoming a hard core tree huger but want to see what useful info I can get that will help my business. They say knowledge is a power thing so I hope I don't hurt myself.

Why you dropping the residentials? You can make good money at it. I think.

Not enough time in the day my brother.
Out of everything I do, residential mowing has the least profit, is seasonal and also depends on the weather.
