    Iam needing some input on the winter projects, does anybody hang X-Mas lights for income, how do you charge. (small town about 12000.00) hard to figure the market and if there is one.

    Trim,

    How about firewood?

    Small town of 12,000-- just depends on the economy there. Most people stretching for Christmas would have a tough time paying someone $100 to hang lights.

    That service works well with busy affluent people. Busy middle class tend to try it themself or not at all.

    Go for the combo!
    Christmas tree lot, Christmas lights decorating, firewood, AND snow removal.. just kidding that's too much at one time.

    This will sound funny, but

    what do people use for heating homes in winter? Are there even many fireplaces or wood stoves? I'm in Boise. And I love a good fire!
