I'm looking for a new Dump Site for brush, weeds and small trees near Livonia, Northville, Novi or Wixom. Any suggestions?

When the going gets rough.....add a Wed deadline on a big tree project, during a holiday week. I pray to God, everything goes as planned tomorrow.

We will be doing trees, in the rain tomorrow. I bid the job high, because I didn't want it, and they bit.

I said we would have it done Monday after the holiday. He countered by adding on 50% of my bid to have it done by Wed. Could you say no?

Mind you, this is at a $3m estate, in a neighborhood I'm looking to overtake, and their current service provider couldn't make it happen. I PRAY everything goes right tomorrow, and I will be paying cash for a new TT Monday morning.
