Snow Plowing, Tree Removal



Classified Ad

Those small evergreens planted

along the driveway in the fall? Gone.

The young maple still braced

with stakes and wire, leafless

in winter? Uprooted by the plow

after that first snowfall before

there was frost in the ground.

The weeping cherry purchased

at the nursery for a price that was

dear? You guessed it: gone as well.

Snow Plowing, Tree Removal.

Truth in advertising, it seems.

Makes one wonder about

Plumbing, Basement Cleanouts,

or Roofing, Full Renovations.

Carpentry, Demolition

is a surefire concern

as well.
