One business card size display ad in the "tree service"section.
One bold line ad in the "tree service" section.
One large print bold w/white background in the "stump removal" section.
One line ad in the "lawn & landscaping" section.

Cost for all is $170.00 a month. Up $10.00 from last year which was my first year to advertise in yellow pages.

Depending on what that cost you for those two years two advertise. It doesnt sound too bad too me, Roughly 12 or 13 new accounts a year from one source of advertising, it seems like the ad paid for itself and then some.
