    When I post or read the forum on lawnsite I try to make a note which state the person is from. It seems like California, Arizona and others western states are underrepresented. With such a large population you would think they would make up a large percentage of the post and membership of Lawnsite. It seems like most of the membership or at least post on Lawsite are from Texas, the Midwest and all points east to the coast.

    With the price of homes in California it amazes me that you can make a decent living doing this out there. But then there is the issue of immigrant labor that makes a difference I guess. So how is the business out west.

    Seems like they clear cut every year with a guy called Santa Ana!

    Man, I have never been even close to a large forest fire like they
    are having out there, and it just ran through those houses like water.
    Pity those folks out there.
