Snow is Booming Business for One Company

While all the snow is causing headaches for schools and the city, there is one local business that is booming.

McCullough’s Tree Service has six commercial trucks that plow and salt parking lots, schools and factories and this snow is keeping them busy.

"Once we get everything cleared up from one storm that comes in, another one comes in right behind us and keeps the guys really busy," tells Bryan Smith with McCullough’s Tree Service

Smith says they are available 24 hours a day and while the snow is good for business, the long days have been tough on the employees.

"This is kind of overkill. It makes it hard on the equipment and the guys and people in general. It is like a windstorm, when a windstorm comes by we don’t ever wish anybody bad luck, but yea it does help us out, but I am looking forward to spring like everybody else," says Smith.

They don’t work with ODOT or the city street crews, but Smith says there is a shared appreciation for what they do.
