    wish i could get the leaves up, but their still frozen together!

    we live in seven hills less than 10 min south of downtown cleve. we are strictly a family op now (father, brother and I) so we are set with what we have. although we are putting together an aggressive plan for next season and looking to be bringing in accounts to the point where we will need at min. 3-4 other trucks with us and maybe some equip operators as well.

    if you are currently looking for work, the best company i can recommend is Alemko. they do amazing work for being such a large company (employ over 150 contractors) and pay pretty well. look them up if your interested.
