I was looking for a tree removal service for dead trees or leaning trees, etc., and found a wonderful guy who is living on Marco for the time being, and is responsive and friendly, and seems to be very honest and I can vouch for his hard working character. He was able to take trees that were hanging into the water blocking the canal, and he took it within his and his employees’ stride. His name is Johnathan, and if you call my office at 252-8601, I will give you his number. I know everyone is busy, but sometimes we need a good recommendation, and here is one. Now I’m looking for a screen guy who will answer his phone or return a call. I might have found him, but I’ll let you know. I do not want to promote one over another, but sometimes it’s frustrating not finding a company who can work hard for you and not walk away with your money when the job is only half finished.
