I sell supplies to Lawn Care Operators & Tree Care Companies in the northern suburbs of NYC,NJ,CT, and So.Mass. Between the slow down on Wall Street, and the more obvious issue in Manhattan and Washington, some of my customers are reporting a slow down in big ticket sales. These include Tree pruning, cabling, etc, as well as large scale turf renovations and landscape plantings. Not everyone is complaining. Perhaps it's just those who cater to the pulses of Wall St. But I can't put my finger on the theme (if there is one) to the trend. Maybe some are riding on allready sold work that they're still getting caught up on. It's possible these folks haven't noticed a slow down in sales because their hands are still busy. Is anyone else out here experiencing a significant slowdown? If so, what are your plans? This forum would be a great place to share ideas to enhance sales and ensure that we are as "recession proof" an indusrty as possible.
