Most of us spend about one-third of our lives working. So we might as well have a bit of fun while we work, right? Well, we certainly did that during 2015! It was a great year.
We did not capture the entire year on film, but we managed to catch bits and pieces. So we decided to compile a highlight reel of sorts. Below is a smidgen of fun footage from 2015 showing some of the things we do, the fun we have, and best of all, our people.
2016, let the good times keep on rollin’!
Get ready for 53 seconds of fun! It’s time for the annual Leaf & Limb holiday video.
This year we created our own rendition of “The 12 Days of Christmas.” We began the song on the 12th day, in order to keep the video short and sweet. As always, we had TOO much fun filming this video!
We hope you enjoy the video. Thank you for helping make 2015 a wonderful year and we hope you have a very happy holiday!
“12 Days of Lumberjack Christmas” Lyrics:
On the Twelfth Day of Christmas my true love sent to me:
12 Climbers Climbing,
11 Rakers Smiling,
10 Fellows Dancing,
9 Sawyers Sawing,
8 Blowers Blowing,
7 Polesaws Pruning,
6 Salesmen Selling,
5 Felled Trees.
4 Lustrous Beards,
3 Sharp Axes,
2 Larking Bards,
And a Santa in a Pine Tree!
Happy Holidays from Leaf & Limb!
Dear Ladies & Gentlemen,
We must warn you in advance: this video is going to cause you to feel an unnatural desire to either operate a stump grinder, or immediately request that a stump grinder show up at your property. You might not even have a stump, you will just want to see the machine run.
Ok, kidding aside, this video is way cool. We had entirely too much fun making it. We can’t say for certain, but we are pretty sure this is the best stump grinding video ever. Ok, maybe not, but it sure is entertaining.
Without further ado, check it out. Let us know if you like it. Toodle-oo!
This ranks as a contender for most exciting announcement of the year, at least for all of us here at Leaf & Limb: we have a new home!
For several years we have been searching, saving our nickels, bootstrapping, hoping, wishing, and performing ritualistic dances (ok, not that one….) in an effort to find the perfect place to become Leaf & Limb’s new home. Well, we finally found that place at 511 Nowell Road in Raleigh.
The process began over three years ago when we first saw the building. But at the time, we could not broker any sort of affordable deal. We forgot about this place until December of last year when Basil and Colin were driving by and decided to pop out for another quick walk around the property. It was love all over again.
We decided to make another push to buy the building. But this time we knew what mistakes to avoid from our previous experience, and we knew what was necessary in order to broker the deal. It required a combination of careful timing, hurdling several major obstacles, and heaps of good fortune. We had to navigate a very narrow strait.
But the stars aligned. Two weeks ago we closed the deal and now we are busy moving into our new home. We truly could not feel more blessed. It’s times like these when you know life must be inherently good.
To celebrate our purchase, and to celebrate the 4th of July, we threw a party. Below are a few pictures from our great celebration. To see more pictures, and to see pictures of the new facility, head over to the Leaf & Limb Facebook Page.
Oh, and don’t forget to come by and say hello sometime! Things are hectic now, but once we get into August life at 511 Nowell Road should be a bit more normal. See ya soon!
Your trees and shrubs are hungry! Poor suburban soils, competition from turf, and leaf removal means your trees and shrubs are squealing “feed me! Nom nom nom.”
Give them what they want. Feed them.
The good news is that now is the perfect time to provide them with nutrition. We can do so using our deep root fertilization system.
But we do more than just provide your plants with nutrients. Our goal is to reinvigorate life within the soil by introducing essential microbes, humates, and organic matter. By doing so, we will increase the health and vitality of your trees and shrubs.
Have a look at the short video below to learn more about our tree and shrub nutrition program.
We are proud to announce that Leaf & Limb was chosen by ESGR as the winner of the Patriot Award! This award recognizes companies nominated by a Guardsman or Reservist employee for support provided directly to the nominator.
We are honored by this recognition and we will continue to do our part to support Guardsmen and Reservists.
