    Started in the tree business 6 years ago, customer asked if i mowed lawns so i said yes. Started with bucket truck, 5 chainsaws, pickup truck,trailer, toro walk behind, cheap blower and weedeater. 6 years later... bucket truck,chipper,stump grinder,chevy 1 ton dump, dodge 4x4,7x16 express trailer, 50"dixon, 60" dixon, toro walkbehind, sthil weeder,edger,hedger, Tanka handheld blower,edger,hedger,Shindaiwa backpack blowers(2),stick hedger and 11 chain saws. Trying to make the move from 50/50 trees&lawn to 20/80 trees&lawn right now I have approx 40 lawns.Also I work mostly by my self. Find most guys want to get paid but not work.
