I said thats what i would do and i stand by it for my region.  We have logging operations of every size (how many F250s with bunks out your way skeans?)  Lot of con men out here and its tricky to sort them out before hand.  Thats their craft, putting you at ease long enough to score and scram. Ive given the best advice i can to outfox the hidden bandit and that was my goal.  The OP can disregard if it doesnt apply

Industrial scams go like this... 

"Hey im in the neighborhood sealcoating and i notice your driveway is getting cracked, yeah super cheap.   .... Dont mind the rainbow runoff water when it rains thats normal for a while."

Its diesel engine oil. 

"Hey i just paved a driveway down the street and my son ordered too much asphalt for the job/the guy only had us do half of what we thought/we measured wrong, its going to harden in my bed ill cut you a great deal.. Spread and rolled for $x per sq yard."  

After its down he says its $x per square foot.  This happened to my dad and i was real close to a brawl with stans paving on route 20 in palmer mass over it (dirtbag)

I was hired to repair two really bad residential logging jobs in my life.  Both were 

"Oh hey im next door logging for your neighbor and..."  


Just something to consider.  They cant all be bad, but the bad ones are at it every day.  Buyer beware.

Funny, I had that offer twice in my life. I didn't take them up on it though, my driveway is cement and not a thing wrong with it the way it is/has been for the last 60 years.....

If that was here. And I was approached with that small logging job and I was next door. And there was a few good trees. I would feel you out to see if you were going to be annoying. If not I would do it for 1k t keep the logs I want pile the logs I dont and you own the tops. I'm one guy, skidder and and trucks. That's me that's here. If they were all walnuts or wo veneer might be free or even buy. But that's border line tree trimming service stuff.
