His Tree & Landscape Inc.
Didn't respond to Joseph Kerata's complaint about a job he says damaged electrical cables.
Also in the box...
COMPLAINT: Joseph Kerata, Bradenton. Fla.
"I hired His Tree & Landscape Inc. to remove and replace three trees. Their vice president, Chris Rogers, assured me there was no concern about underground electrical cables because the root balls don't go as deep as the cables.
"But one root ball had wrapped around a cable and it was torn from the side of my house when they removed the tree. Rogers assured me he would pay Florida Power & Light for the damage, but he never did.
"As property owner, I was ultimately responsible for the $1,006.51 bill."
DESIRED RESOLUTION: "Since I paid the bill for the damages that Chris Rogers said he would take care of, I expect him to reimburse me."
STATUS: Penalty Box
