    Depending on how well my business does in the next 3-4 years, i want to sell out and go to another part of the country...where, Im not sure. Possibly new england, maybe chicago, toying with floridia. Search criteria includes an area that has alot of excellent professional type companies, decent amount of snow fall, preferably heavily wooded area, and (here is the kicker) excedingly high per capita income. I would prefer cool season grasses, and nice hilly terain(for personal reasons).

    Which brings me to my question, if you were forced to relocate your business, where would you go, and why??? Any areas come to mind based on my criteria?

    Does Aspen CO. have a non snow season. If it does that should cover all your needs, I have never been there but from I see in mags and T.V

    Northern California. Lots of money and expensive real estate. Moderate weather and gentle rolling terrain. Watch out for the earthquakes though...the terrain really starts to roll at times. No snow fall but who needs that anyway.

    MacLawnCo I thought about moving back up to oxford but Doug at shademakers, and Oxford Lawn Care doing so well I think it would be to hard to get work.

    But Like Trex said Aspen is cool we lived near aspen when my wife was in college there is lots of money, Lots of Grass, Lots of Snow. Work all year round
