    Keep in mind if you bring suit, he can counter sue, he will claim how how his grandfather planted these trees and that was all he had to remember him, he will say you cut down the trees he planted with his girls when they were young. Then he will sue for ornamental value instead of lumber value, he will say you cut trees you were not to cut. You run the risk of losing big. To me take it as a learing exp, that in writing customer to mark trees to cut, take pics before you cut them. Imo

    Don't worry even the best sob story won't work, if it's in the contract i don't care if George Washington himself planted the trees, he aint got a leg to stand on.

    That's funny yet true but im still torn on what to do. I mean this guy can't just get away with this. He needs to be the one thinking lesson learned not me. Especially when I did nothing wrong.

    Thats not true, there is a great deal to the simplest contracts. Just because its on paper doesnt mean you automatically win. Furthermore most courts will rule in favor of the laymen over the professional in the case of an ambiguous contract. Which, on the surface it seems like we have in this case.
