Tree Trimming

Income $ 80,000       $100,000

The range of income for the first year should be around $80,000. The key to achieving a higher income range is to hire others to do the work for you, so that you can expand your business.


Develop a regular route for the spring and the summer to trim larger trees for homeowners, and apartment managers, as well as condominium and townhouse associations.


Your clients will consist of home owners, apartment managers, and even small business owners that own their own buildings as well as property managers in large complexes.

Marketing Plan

Most jobs can usually be acquired by placing an ad in the paper, and by leaving your cards at local grocery stores and especially with Realtors.  Door knockers are an excellent way to canvas a neighborhood. Create an ad special with a time-based action.

Power Partners

Your Power Partners will consist of interior decorators, residential Realtors, handymen, general contractors, and landscapers. They’ll know when homeowners have challenges with their trees.


You will need to acquire the proper training; systems to keep organized and any type of systematic process that will help you keep your clients from one year to the next.
