They wanted conventional seeding, it sucks though because after that rain and wind yesterday it blew the straw all around. I wish they just went with the hydro

I went over to the local sign-a-rama today and put the deposit on some design work for truck lettering and a sign for the entrance to my garage complex. Which should work well since my garage is located on the main road through town with mostly all intertown and local traffic. I'll post the design once they send it to me in a few days

scrubbing out some under brush to prep for fill and bringing up the grade so the homeowner can access the side door of his shed and park a car along side

looks good, why did you choose to go with a vermeer chipper over a brush bandit? I'm starting a tree service up in a few weeks, and i'm going straight to a bucket truck, i was gonna learn to climb and buy all the climbing stuff, but its much slower, and much more dangerous. with a bucket, i know 500-1000/hr is no issue. climbing you might be able to get that kinda money but i think its a bit harder, idk maybe i'm wrong. also what do you chip into now your dump trailer? i was gonna just stack the brush on my 7x14 dump trailer for a month or so, then buy a chipper maybe even finance one, for 10,000. i have almost everything i need to open up a tree service except a bucket truck, I got two rigging ropes, 5/8th stable braid, a porta wrap, 5/8th arborist block, sling, 150ft of throw line with bean bag, can't hook, ms200t ms201t ms440 with 28", 25" bar and i paid for a stihl ms660 with a 20" bar because i already have the 28" which i'll toss on the 660 and put the 20" bar on the 440 and it should rip. and i'll buy a 36" bar once i get a job that requires it, and i already have a pine job lined up two houses down from mine, 4 pines one the top blew off and came within a foot of hitting the house, and the others he doesn't wanna wait for. so 3 more of these jobs and i'll have a bucket truck paid for, then a chipper, then get out of my landscaping business debt. did you start another company or just add tree care to your current logos and lettering?

Last year I started southern ct tree care with a partner and due to some issues of him not coming through with his end he was bought out early on and southern CT tree care was closed in january, that is when I just added to the list of services for advanced landscaping. I chose vermeer due to the service and sales center being in seymour which isnt to far away and the price was right for the chipper I picked up that and still does ran excellent. Best of luck with the tree business, its profitable work but just remember the lawns keep cash flow going when the tree jobs arn't coming in, hence why i'm still mowing.

i see dealer support is important. i have done many tree jobs already that were extremely low risk, as far as hitting anything goes. and made great money doing. i did one job i priced cheap it was 2 small maples standing, and one crab apple tree that was uprooted, for 1200 including the stumps, then she added some more brush in the back yard and another small crab apple tree and it went to 2k and i did almost entirely by myself in 8hrs just loading brush by hand, because i sold my chipper in the winter but that thing was an antique, ran good for a while then it started getting air in the system and everywhere i brought it couldn't figure out where so i ended up selling it, i figured out it was an injector o-ring and the fuel pump needed to be replaced, the day i was selling it, but i still wanted to sell it, 25 year old chipper, kinda leaves a lot to be desired, even though it made me a lot of money and for 4500 a diesel chipper with a cummins in it that had a rotating chute and a new clutch and could take 10" logs was a pretty good deal, especially in november of 2011 right after that storm hit. but ya i know as little money as the lawns bring it is very consistent, every single week they need to be cut, so the tree has saturday, monday, and tuesday to fill in. I think things should work out pretty good, already have a job booked, and i have most of the saws, just need 660 but my 440 with a 28" bar will work fine until i need to cut a bigger tree.
