Hey Tucson!
I found a great community focused website and business. After talking with the owners I am happy to tell you about them. They have a blog that give free tips on how to DIY. Stuff like training a tree, Texas Ranger shrub maintenance, Palo Verde identification and more stuf than I can tell you about. I have enjoyed reading an expert point of view crossing the notes with my own. The name of the business is tree removal service tucson. I emailed them a question about tree trimming through the website (www.treeremovalservicetucson.com) and got a response. Free tips is something they do not have to offer, but it shows how they want to help Tucson. Enjoy and pay it forward.
