    Finishing my clean ups tomorrow, have mowed almost all of the lawns this week... A few still a bit slow. I do do trees on the island, just as long as it is not too big.... I don't have a bucket truck. Let me know if he still needs it done

    I'm sick of cleanups already but only have three days of them left! Going to start weekly service next week myself. Looking to hire a third employee right now with all the work I have lined up.

    Have them call Warwick Tree Service, their going to be the cheapest around for a large removal like that.

    I hope to be done tomorrow with clean ups.

    Got about 30 yes of mulch to get going on.

    I used warwick before until they screwed me on some tree work at my moms house, don't or didn't have insurance when asked. Kept dodging it. Didn't hire them again. I uses guy named diegnan tree out of Warwick. I just wanted to see if any of you guys wanted it.

    Let me ask this question. Where and how have you guys been going about getting permanent help. I'm going to need two replacements soon. One guy I am mentoring to go out on his own the other has the no car no phone problem.

    Hey Ryan, I was looking through your pictures feed. looks awesome. I grew up and currently live in West Greenwich, so Mulch N More has always been the closest to me. Feel free to use them if you like, but I actually drive a little further and get mulch from anybody but them. I hate badmouthing people, but I've used Mulch N More a lot in the past and wasn't impressed. The color doesn't hold very well at all. After a few good rains, you'll notice the mulch start to look like a natural color rather than the dyed brown or black. Also, I'm sure you know, Mulch N More is owned by the same guy who owns Big Mike's tree service. I've noticed all sorts of things in their mulch, all the way from license plates and branches, to fungus growing on the mulch since they don't seem to mix it with a fungicide like most other places. If their quality has gone up from the past couple of years, let me know, but to me, they definitely fit the mold for you get what you pay for. p.s. I also don't use Watson's because they are so expensive.
