Last month’s devastating ice storm boosted business for many New Hampshire tree removal companies that otherwise were having a rough year.
For David Kimball of Danville’s Kimball Tree Service, the storm was a financial shot in the arm that turned a horrid year into a better one. Kimball said he usually gets one or two calls a week this time of year, but was getting six to eight a day after the storm toppled trees across much of the state. On Monday alone, he received 19 calls.
Derek Arnold of All Season’s Tree Specialist, said he had finished all his scheduled work about a week before the storm hit but now expects to have work through February. He expects another boom in the spring when people get their tax refunds.
