    We have sold when doing a lot of tree jobs but not consistently. Good side income that is not hard to do and if you have the land to keep wood on or busy road to show to people driving by we would do a lot of business. But moved homefront to a more remote location. Not as much demand like we used to have and not as many tree jobs like before as we got away from them a few years back.

    There's not that much money in it when you take in all you're expenses

    What really pisses me off when someone tries to trade tree work for firewood.

    Yeah I'll give you a $2k job for free if you give me the firewood. And then I have to pay someone to split and stack it. You tree only has two cords at the most. That's worth $300 to me

    But but the guy from Craigslist said he'd do it for the wood!

    People are fing cheap

    Is there money to be made in this industry compared to lawn care? Where I live I would literally have to drive 30 minutes 1 way just to get to a location where wood can be cut.
