I am really blown away by the great resources you have available for everyone no matter what stage they are in the game!

After helping start and run a very successful tree company here in Charleston, I am off and running to bring up to speed my own dream of having my own landscape company.

I am passionate about flying( i am a pilot) and green care both. I am looking for a simple, clean, upscale looking logo for "Pilot Turf and Tree"

I plan to have a printer utilize the many flyer and door hanger templates and even vehicle graphics Etc

Any help or suggestions or prototype design ideas would be awesome free or not.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi Brian!

Welcome to our forum! How fascinating! Do you have any pictures of your planes or flying?

What made you get out of the tree business and into this new business?

I have plenty of pictures from over the years of various planes I have flown and have been flown in by others. I fly single engine Cessna products a Cessna 172 or a 150 mostly.

I went into the Air Force directly from High School. I got out in 2001. I worked with a one man operation during the summer weekends mostly in and around Canton, Michigan a very large bedroom community. I have always had a dream of doing a large scale operation of my own. I helped my friend from my truck and his climbing equipment and a rented chipper when I got out in 2001. Just to pay the bills. Now, my friend and roomate has the most prestigious and growing outfit in the area. I have recently worked as a ground crew member for his crew upon de-mobilization from my most recent service from 2003-2005 in the Air Force Reserve. He gave me the job to help me along in transition. I have recetly worked on the sales team, while holding a night job as a contractor on the Air Force base.

Now the time has come for my own hard work and sacrafice. I am divorced unfourtunatly and am in a position where I can build my dream under the umbrella of an already established company of friends and family. I just want to go it alone, but with help and guidance.

Anyways, I have the print shop waiting to tweak an awesome flyer thanks to you guys. I am looking for a Logo and soon!

Brian can you post some pics? We'd all love to see them! I don't think we have any pilots here.

I'd love to see your flyer design too.

Wow!
That is an awesome Logo for doing it "on the fly" Lol

I will post some pics soon, I have alot on myspace and facebook.

You guys rock! Thank You whomever you are! Any more Ideas? How could I get a copy to use for print?

I am thinking of getting a safari shir with epaluts on the shoulder like the ones Cabela's wear at thier stores. I would like to embroider my name and Logo and wear Pilot's Rank insignia on my shoulders!

I have a 1995 Jeep Cherokee Country in Green with Silver trim, pulling an open 6x12 landscape trailer. I am looking at maybe getting vinyal graphics for the windows next year if all goes well! Of course signs on the trailer! Then upgrading to a box truck with graphics when I grow!

Thanks Guys! I am looking forward to showing you some completed flyer work. I also have a very professional carbon copy contract that I am going to tweak. I snagged it from my competition. It blows all the other contracts posted away!
I will share it for all to see sometime!

I think I found you on myspace and sent you a friend request.

Also, contact Tony at amw-graphics.com if you need sign assistance. Here is the logo in vector based pdf format. I hope you can use it.

I am looking forwards to seeing some of your pics!

Here is one Picture of me flying a 2000 Millenium Edition Cessna Skyhawk to visit Family In Jacksonville. 180HP, Fixed Pitch Prop Fuel Injected Horizontally Opposed 4 Clynder, Leather Seats, 2 axis Auto-Pilot and Colr Moving Map GPS!

Thats What Motivates me to Go into Business for myself! It rents for $120/HR or I could buy one for around $120,000 used! I want to live the Lifestyle, So gotta have the bucks and the Freedom!

Flying a CLassic 1973 cessna 150. I helped semi restore it this summer. Its fun to fly around the Lake and drop in on friends fishing or go doodle around. Its simple, safe and fun. 100HP Continental O-100 Made since the early 40's, Magneto Ignition, Carburated. I Soloed in this plane almost 7 years ago!
