Last weekend we had a huge ice storm and tree damage was severe. So I went to Knoxville and rented a 9" chipper for the week and planned for several weeks of use with it. However, I am ready to take it back since in the past 4 days out, I've had 3 cleanups that were done by someone else who did a botched job and one last night called and said that he did it after me telling him that we'd be there today. His was an insurance claim and I bet that he had me give an estimate so that he could collect from ins. company and do what he did. After that, I've about had enough of this kind of thing and will take the chipper back unless I find something that is worth keeping it for. Something like this is going to have reprecussions to those who had a hobo off the street do their work and when their trees rot out in a few year, I guess I can make up for it later and they will pay for a removal of a rotten tree instead of the proper trimming that would have kept it healthy.
