    Do you approach your parents Tree Service customers and chat them up? I would think those customers would be interested in having a service that can keep thier entire yard pristine. Make suggestions about further improvements. " If you like how the trees look, let me show you what I can do for the rest of the yard!" :usflag::usflag::usflag:

    That is too easy, you just don't do what everyone else is doing.

    Worry about yourself instead, stop paying them any mind and just do your thing.
