    Recent job a few days ago. Had a few trees that needed to go. hedges that were way too tall and need o be trimmed back a whole lot. Filled my trailer with a lot of the mulch clippings. Took roughly half a day for everything. Went through 5 chains on the chainsaw. Glad I have my own sharpener for them. The best part was, I had a guy that wanted all the mulch for his garden. Cha ching no dump fee!!!

    It would have been about minimum 5 trailer loads to haul away, this was cheaper, and much quicker also.

    i helped a friend of mine years ago when i lived up in ohio do something like this. he had overgrown hedges and trees and wanted to haul all the stuff down to his beach and burn it. i said to him that he was crazy, we would be cutting and hauling for days. i told him to rent a chipper. after the first load of truck and trailer loaded with the brush, he decided to get the chipper. lol got done in a day and popping cold one's that night. wouldn't do a job like this otherwise! rent the chipper and make it sooooo easy!

    Well, there is still more to come. She wants me to maintain the yard also, look how tall the weeds are around the pool and everything. Grass is 2 foot tall around the fence. There are plenty more trees in the back that need to be trimmed too. I told her that later we can do everything else once she gets her money rejuvinated. lol
