For the calls he did answer, the Kelley team went from house to house writing up bids and even doing on the spot work. We caught up with him at his seventh stop of the day. Joe said he's taking calls in order of urgency and who needs help the most.
Joe doesn't have enough man power for all the calls nor enough equipment. He's only using to chainsaw. Kelley said, "these saws are new this morning. I had to buy them today. I had to buy new saws because yesterday they'd all been stolen."
It's a risky business that uses engineering to calculate weight, angles, and how the branches roll once they're cut. Joe's advice- first, cut everything that's not holding up weight. If not, the tree could fall and do more damage.
