Tree trimmers trying to keep up with the calls

Tree trimmers are trying to keep up with all the calls after Sandy blew through NE Ohio early this week.

Dan Mytnick's chainsaw has been getting a workout, all because of the weather.  The storm has kept him and his crews at "Jam Tree & Shrub" working around the clock.  "There's been a lot of trees down.  It's been very busy nonstop. More trees have been down than I've ever seen before," he said.

Mytnick says since the storm hit he's gotten more than a dozen calls a day, and has already taken care of at least twenty trees.  He says it's been challenging to get to all the calls. "They're really happy to see us really happy to get someone to do their tree."

Gale Miller and her family have taken matters into their own hands.  "It cost five hundred dollars and my husband said no way!"

The Rocky River resident says she called another tree cutting service who said she'd have to wait four days.  So her husband and son decided to cut the trees themselves.  "He said I'm not waiting cause he needed to get out of the garage and go to work, and he said I'll do it and save the money," said Miller.

Mytnick predicts the chainsaw will keep going for several more weeks, and then maybe all the trees taken down by the super storm will be taken care of.
