Friend don’t let friends use Tree Gators

And yes, we are creative people. But at the end of the day I can’t spend creativity. I’m here to make money. If beauty gushes all over the place as I “rock on down the street”, then great.

Nothing’s worse than having a great year with Great Growth, Great Volumes, Great Moral, but not great end of year profits. You know one of those guys. You were one of those guys. Or hopefully not, you are one now.

Where did all the money go?”

Intangible losses

  1. Smoke breaks – 15 minutes, 4 time a day, over a year is ? of intangible labor productivity losses
  2. 7-11 – all of your crews at the gas station for 20 mins A DAY!!!! I won’t go into that one.
  3. Dead Trees – SEE BELOW

What does a dead tree really cost?

How much is a dead 1” caliper tree, which cost you $100.00, worth? 

  • $100.00 dead tree
  • $100.00 replacement tree
  • $100.00+ lost revenue for planting a FREE tree
  • $100.00+ labor and labor burden
  • $ 50.00 misc.
  • $450.00+ TRUE COST OF DEAD TREE. 

 Now check this out!

A landscape contractor plants 100 – 1” caliper trees costing $100.00 each.  He or she has a 5% loss rate for a job of this nature.

  • 100 trees @ $100.00 each
  • $10,000.00 total plant cost
  • $300.00 to treat trees with DIEHARD™ Transplant (3% of plant costs)

ADDING DIEHARD TRANSPLANT WILL CUT YOUR LOSSES ON AVERAGE 70-80%. This is verified from 20+ years of customer reports and reviews.

Now calculate the same job with an investment of $300.00 worth of DIEHARD™ Transplant with a lower loss rate of 1%.

  •  WITHOUT DIEHARD™
  • $0.00 investment in DIEHARD™ Transplant
  • 5 dead trees – $2250.00 lost cash flow and profits

 

  • WITH  DIEHARD
  • $300.00 investment in DIEHARD™
  • 1 dead tree – $450.00 lost cash flow and profits
  • ($1800.00) cost savings. NOTE: This revenue is critical for cash flow.

So, an expense is only an expense if it doesn’t carry its own weight. So, as business owners we must focus on what we don’t see as much as what we do. Finding hidden holes in your cash flow is an art. Fortunately, we have your back.
