    So major storm comes to town knocks down a bunch of peoples' trees and leaves a mess, what do you do? I was thinking about getting my chainsaw and some rope and some extra chainblades and just riding around going door to door offering my service right after? Anyone done this? If so what do you bring and how do you approach? We have a curbside program so would not have to haul away. Has anyone offered a contract or advertising for storm cleanup?

    we had a windstorm come through here in septmber, high wind in history looked like a war zone. we did cleanups with both crews for 2 days 10-12 hours each day and then 1 crew for the rest of the week. made some good $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ at it, just do your regular customers first
