    Do they own a blower or sub contract the blowing? Im sure they are probably trying to save money, a blower is expensive to own and operate and they are expensive to contract with. Mexicans are cheap!

    Actually I think our Mexicans get paid more than most guys plus they get housing and a vehicle from davey. But we sub contract our mulch blowing out.

    Any chance of posting some pics of the inside of the trailer?

    Do you guys use basket in the nose of the trailer? Ive seen a few crews at Sheetz....but i wasnt able to see inside the trailer from the angle i was at.

    Im looking for some new ideas on storage for my larger trailer.

    Post more pics from the spring!

    I posted pics in one of the beginning pages of the truck and inside of the trailer. I have the same set up as last year except the truck I have is a gas engine and has a long bed. Yes I have two baskets on the two level shelf in the front of the trailer. One is for chemicals and water and the other is tools and such.

    I don't think anyone has asked this yet. Do you guys have to wear uniforms or just shirts or what?

    We wear uniforms provided by Cintas. The crew leaders wear tan shirts and laborers/technicians wear green shirts. We also wear safety vests over them.

    Another picture I had from earlier during third week of April showing the spring colors of the red maples, pear trees, and crabapples (I believe).
