    On a more positive note, in case this was missed by other forum members here, kudos to Nick for taking this step to try to get a better handle on the situation. http://www.treestuff.com/store/catalog.asp?item=17280 The store will be closed for business on Friday December 15th, 2017, to allow for inventory count, and to help get a handle on the "out of stock" situation.

    Just for the record, I could not disagree with the 2nd sentence more. Although I do agree with your assessment of what is happening to the place, as expressed in your first sentence. To me, it would have made absolutely perfect sense to just buy out treestuff, and then essentially leave them alone to run the business as they always had done in the past. Nick could consult with Luke as need be when he felt stumped on how to handle particular situations. If the business was growing like crazy, and making a profit, why mess with it? Leave it alone and let it keep growing. Only if the numbers guys start detecting big losses should Sherrill start to intercede, mostly by asking Nick what he needs to help improve things. All of that is not what appears to be happening. The reason to mess with something that is not broken, in my mind, is just because of ego, and not good business. It may have been something of an embarrassment that Sherrill was possibly getting its butt kicked in terms of sales volume by TreeStuff. Instead of asking the questions "Why is TreeStuff kicking our butts, and what can we do to better compete with them?", they thought they could buy them up, and eliminate them as a competitor. The problem with that idea is that people took their business to TreeStuff for a reason, and avoided doing business with SherrillTree for a reason. Maybe Sherrill thought that if they eliminated TreeStuff as a competitor, all of those buyers would then flow over to Sherrill. Problem is, Sherrill is not the only other game in town, and people have other choices. So instead of taking over a booming business and allowing it to continue to grow, they throw a wrench in the works, and all but kill a very profitable venture. All because of embarrassment at being bested in the marketplace. On a personal note, I absolutely find it objectionable when something that I think I'm ordering from TreeStuff gets fulfilled by SherrillTree. Nowhere on TreeStuff's website does the name of SherrillTree appear, at least to the best of my knowledge. If I wanted to buy something from SherrillTree, I would go to SherrillTree's website and order it. The two businesses should not have their operations intermingling with regard to placement and fulfillment of orders. The reason is that the two businesses handle the processing and shipping of orders differently, and those differences might be a large part of why customers choose to shop at one online store and not the other. So by intermingling these operations, you've just made it impossible for a customer to know how his transaction will be handled, or by whom. If this uncertainty bothers a customer enough, they will end up voting with their feet, and going to a third party to do their shopping, a place where they know how their order will be handled. I know I've rambled on too long about this. All I'm trying to say is that it is a huge mistake, in my humble opinion, for Sherrill to mess with the operations of TreeStuff. It will not win Sherrill any new customers, long term. Only in the short term, those folks that think they are ordering from TreeStuff, whose orders then get swiped out from under TreeStuff by SherrillTree. That won't last for long, however, in my opinion. I think ShelterTree is the new TreeStuff, quite possibly. Butch should talk to those folks about sponsorship of this forum, in my opinion. Thanks for putting up with me, Butch. Tim

    The above post from Kevin happened three weeks ago. All three items that he mentioned are still on back order. I say three because there are actually two different quickies for sale, both of which are out of stock. Tim

    Man, that would test my nerves. Most the time here, in our small town, they will let me slide on stuff like that. I get told, get to NAPA or the shop and fix it.

    Bid is paying for it. Just this whole day has got me down. And now I have to go buy a right angle drill I was not planning on. The one I rarely rent got stolen. Merry Christmas to me I guess.

    CurSedVoyce replied to a thread Flatbeds in Gear Forum
    Wood sides are cheap to build, especially if you have a mill ;) Makes it a little harder for.pilfering. quick removal for in case. I've strapped the sides on top of hauling mill wood or logs as needed. My white one could be made into a dump pretty easy. The red truck, not so much. But not impossible. That was originally the plan. And build a box. But then I found a couple trailer deals I could not refuse. And they really rock for hauling. And since we had 200,000,000 dead trees to deal with, hauling was in our future. Clean up is tantamount in this business and where you can lose your arse if you are not efficient about it.

  1. Yeah, thanks....we can all learn something if we are open to it. Brian has issues, I reckon...I'll just let him stew and work out his own way to be involved.

    I enjoy your posts...glad to have you at the House.
