    Around here there's one local company that owns several tractor dealerships all within an hour's drive of my house so I shopped all three of them and had negative experiences at two of them. At one...
  93. Re: Pine trees or shrubry In landscape look dead

    We got it here too. First time in the 15 years since we bought the place. The 4-foot Alberta Spruce trees all turned brown but most of them recovered and look great. Only one bit the dust. The 6-foot...

    Re: Never owned a compact utility tractor, yet

    Chipper Re: PTO chipper/shredder
