    this happened on like Wednesday but im just remembering it all and this is pretty much just a rant but we had line up about 6 tree removal jobs and got them all for the past two weeks well were at the second to last one with was about 95' tall over the house and between two power lines a little tight but we had a lift there but anyway two of us are up in the lift cutting sections and they drop and the 3 ground guys chop them up put some in the wood pile by the street and take the rest to the chipper well they had the saw on the wood pile next to the truck and were waiting for the next limb to come down when the trashman comes by takes the trash can on the other side of the driveway and then takes the saw off the pile and crushes it in his truck and leaves the ground guys chased him down and they said it "looked like trash...sorry" well that was a 044 stihl saw almost $800 thats not good enough for me i got a police report but no one from the trash company will return my calls i have 3 saws but this is a set back and it has taken a lot of my time and im getting annoyed

    Send them a certified letter saying that you intend on taking them to small claims court. That will probably get their attention.
