    This guy isn't charging. I sent him an email telling him that he's a fool for not charging people for his premium firewood.
    All those power line sure look like fun.

    When you get there to check out the 12 oak trees, they end up being 12 dead pine trees in a swamp.

    Thanks, that was the one I used in the e-mail I sent the guy. I probably should learn to MYOB a bit more, but some people need to get a clue.

    I just sent him this........


    Hi,

    I just got a really big chainsaw from a friend and am learning the tree cutting business. I'd be willing to come out and "give it a shot" at felling your trees. I don't have insurance yet (it is really expensive, no wonder real tree service charge money to take down trees hahaha). I'll be pretty neat about things and clean everything up (but I don't have construction skills, so if something like your house gets damaged, I can't fix it!).

    Anyway, if you'd like to give me the opportunity, I'd love to come out and let the chips fly!

    Oh, one other thing, do you have a pretty good homeowner's insurance policy? Just wondering.

    I actually responded to this guy. I simply said "you're an idiot" his response was classic "takes one to know one"

    Are the leaves falling on Cape Cod yet? They sure are in NJ. I want to put up a web site for j@ck@$$ses like this....list out what it really costs to cut down and process trees. A chipper than can run $70K, saws at $1K each, a chip truck at $40K, climbing harnesses, a log splitter, commercial space to store your equipment, insurance, salaries, gas, diesel etc etc etc. We could just send these mucking forons a link so they could see how stupid they are. Or, we could create a website, "jackassesofcraigslist".....people selling trees, dumb@$$ses looking for outrageous dollars for old junk, etc etc etc. I know times are tough, but it seems like the stupid quotient is off the charts these days.
