    Had a pop up yesterday of an advertisement of lawn firm asking if have you had damaged trees in your lawn this year.

    Guess they are ready to leap on this.

    We decided to have the chemist look at all of our properties. They have been very helpful. We are doing it just to save our butt because dupont has not reponded to us.

    We had our meeting today with Duponts hired independent arborist, and private party recorder. No real info passed on from them. They are instructed to give no info regarding duponts position. Paid outside consulting.

    I got a call today that they will be looking at 3 of my properties on Monday. the lawns were randomly picked and I know one of the 3 has already cut the tree down. I'm still finding more damaged trees. Today I found 63 white pines that have Imprelis damage in a Condo neighborhood. the property owners have not noticed it yet, I'm turning it in to Dupont and going to wait to inform the property owners as long as I can to avoid as much drama as possible.
