Depends on what kind of tree - but try American Tree on M-53 - just North of Almont (near Dryden Rd.) They're pretty good and they're close to you too.


Yeah - this weather SUCKS! After a not so great winter, this is really gonna hurt the bottom line this year! Looks like we're gonna loose at least a week of cutting - that's roughly about 3% of the season (if you count on a 30-31 week season). A slow winter is season is one thing (you know you can never 100% count on snow), but, lost revenue because of weather in the lawn season REALLY hurts. That's what really pays the bills.

So when are you guys going to try and start weekly cuts for everyone? I've been trying to get cleanups and other stuff done during this weather but it sure does suck. Doesn't look too good through Saturday.
