Snipping off your pinky


photo of japanese juniper bonsai treeI was pruning one of my bonsai trees after a hard day of surveying. Snip, snip, snip. Deciding which branch to save, which branch to go. Snip, snip, snip.

Pruning at a speed that you, dear reader, could not comprehend as you are neither a surveyor or a ninja.

You know when you are doing a DIY project and it is getting late and you debate whether or not to quit because it is getting too dark? Well, it was that time of night. Snip, snip, snip. Snip, snip, ouch.

At this point I calmly (because dear reader, I am both a surveyor and a ninja) walked into the house and using dental floss and a sewing needle, gave myself 882 stitches.

Don’t be like survey ninja in the tale told above. Think things through.

Do you really need a boundary survey? Maybe a site map or foundation staking will do.

Be sure to explain what your project is and what you plan to do so we can provide the right service to you. We will never try and sell you more survey than you need.
