Thank you to Mr Montgomery and his group to stand up for the trees as well as providing resources and training assistance.
Do not hire, train, and certify an in-house arborist who will leave the position, with generous severance pay, after he discovers how dysfunctional Augusta-Richmond County’s government is. Hire a contractor and let them provide the expertise, labor, and equipment.
I totally agree.
Yep, me too..
Thank goodness! Finally a sensible decision!
Agree that using an outside arborist is probably a better idea. How about Sid Mullis, our retired Extension agent?
The outside contractor must offer turn key service – certified arborist, bucket truck, crane truck, excavator with a grapple bucket, roll-off dumpsters, chain saws, experienced tree climbers and cleanup crew, insurance, etc.
