    Hi, my name is Dave. I live in the southern part of Nebraska (between Colorado and Iowa), west of the populated area of the state. I have been on the site watching for quite a while, lots of info and just plain learning what goes on in the rest of the country. I have been in business here for seven years. Prior to that I worked with another service off and on since the early 70's. We currently run two crews full time and one part time tree man. I started out this time with sixteen accounts, one push mower, one Dixon 50", and working a full time graveyard. After two years we had to give up our laid back 40 hour jobs and devote all our time to the lawn business. No regrets! I hope to maybe put a smile on faces once in a while, as I try not to take things as serious as allot of people. Besides, if it's not fun, why waste your time with it?
