On Saturday May 21st a severe weather alert was released for southern Ontario, including Whitchurch Stouffville, the home of Todd Brothers Contracting. Many homes and businesses were damaged in the storm as extremely heavy winds and rain swept through the area throughout the night. There were countless downed trees blocking roads, driveways, and causing concern for the community’s overall safety. The Todd Brothers team jumped into action by removing trees however way possible. Ross and family jumped in heavy haulers and equipment to clear road ways the next day. In the following weeks Team TB worked daily to clear trees and haul them away especially the hard-hit lake areas where large trees had come down in a very populated residential area.
The project was a huge undertaking, with countless truck-loads of brush, a handful of very hard-working team members, faced with weeks of work in very hot and humid weather . Tree removal is not our typical day-to-day work here at Todd Brothers, but when the community needed us, we rose to the occasion and gave 100%. During this process we received the following feedback from the residents in a neighborhood that was especially hard hit:
“I would like to give a big shout out to the folks at Todd Brothers for their timely, thorough and tireless efforts in cleaning up our neighborhoods in Island Lake Estates. We have many seniors living on the street who would have been lost without you (and the Town) stepping up to help us.
I’m not sure what Todd Brothers are charging and frankly, I don’t care – it was worth every penny. To Ross Todd, you have some great employees working for you – please pass along our appreciation for their hard work.
President – Island Lake Resident’s Association”
Often the community does not get to see the work that we do here at Todd Brothers, so receiving such a positive reception from community members was extremely meaningful and refreshing.
