    This crazy weather has really extended our season. We installed 3500 sq. ft. of sod on cape cod last week. We picked up a planting for next week (ornamentals) and two driveways to dress with 27 ton of stone. Im thankful for this extra work as we are dead on snow work!

    we are still very busy also. still getting calls for bed clean ups and for leaf clean ups - people still wanting us to prune. With no more new calls we still have enough work to keep 3 people busy for at least another week and a half or so!

    LOL your funny! Nobody east of the mississippi is plowing. This December is a joke. I feel bad for the guys who depend on snow to stay alive during the winter.

    Man i wish i were as busy as some of you. All the leaf cleanup jobs are completed and everything is paid for. Now i'm just waiting for the snow to fly. If it does come soon then maybe i will do some of the jobs i have lined up for next spring.

    Nearly all of my client I picked up was in newly constructed subdivisions, so I didn't have many leaf clean-ups at all. This is my first year doing this professionally so next year I'm going to try to target more established subdivisions with more mature trees. This should give me more work during the fall and winter months.
