    What types of jobs do you do that you would just assume not do. I talk to guys who plow snow , but would just assume not plow. They plow for the extra $, keep guys busy, part of maintenance contracts,etc and so on. Same go's for mowing, mulching , pruning, etc. What type of work would you just assume forget about, but you still take on this type of work?

    Exactly how I feel. Leaf season when the weather is raw and rainy is the worst!

    Turf doctor: I agree with about anything with a chainsaw. I'll leave that to the arborists. I use chainsaws strictly for cutting out old hedges with renovation work.
