look at the forecast??? these guys have been DEAD WRONG all year - trust me, between my partner and I we do about $200,000 to $240,000 a year in snow (gross) and i do watch the weather - but i refuse to believe it will snow or even get that cold next week... don't believe the hype..

the reason i asked was the fact that trugreen was out making applications last weekend.. i was a bit shocked

There out to sine early contracts so the little guys don't get them.

You can put down 19-0-7 with dimension now if you wont and again in late April early may a double app wont hurt .

Don't worry about the big guys jumping the gun, it's only typical and they have 7 apps to get done! They will only upset the poeple that didn't expect their return so quickly and they'll cancel them.

If your using Barricade apply anytime it will be there,if Pre M one trip wait a few weeks in NW Ohio, if Dimension wait until mid April as has some good reach back. If you knew what the weather held for the next few months you could pick your timing to start.TGCL has been running for several weeks here in Lima Area as many have. Still at least one major "BLAST" of winter,wait and see!!and yes on that 7 trip program you want to get a jump on.
