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.
