    I'm down near St. Louis. I have been doing some spring clean ups, but will probably start weekly service next week. Some customers will probably have us skip here and there untill the first of April though.

    Alittle off topic, but my fiance and I are considering going to Chicago for our honeymoon. Have never been there before. We were wondering what would be some fun things to do there? Is there a certain area of Chicago that you should go to? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Can respond back of PM me if would like. Thanks for the help.

    I just wanted to drop a line and let you guys know that I have a guy that is starting his own tree spade/digger business this year. He is willing to travel around the midwest doing his thing so maybe if you guys know anybody. This is his first year for his business, but not his first year digging. He used to work for some nursery in IL and decided to do his own thing. Anyway if you are interested or know somebody who might be his company name is "KG Horticultural Service LLC" Phone is (262)736-1126 and the mans name is Mike Kazy-Garey.

    I'm down south (St. Louis metro) and we have been cutting off and on for the last 2 weeks. Next week everyone gets cut. The grass is green and starting to grow pretty good right now. Some have been cut twice already.
