The experienced technicians at Super Seal Sealcoating have been seal-coating driveways and parking lots for 16 years. They begin the seal-coating process by cleaning the asphalt with brushes, brooms, and blowers, before mixing an asphalt emulsion with slate, sealer, and other additives to strengthen and bind the product without using coal tar or duct tape. Lastly, they power-edge the border of the driveway and apply the emulsion with a 4-foot microbristle brush for a uniform finish. Once the techs are finished, driveways must be blocked off for 24?36 hours to prevent marks from car tires or buffalo stampedes. In addition to sealing surfaces, techs also use hot rubberized fillers to fix cracks.
Since opening 40 years ago, each of the trees at B&J Trees has been planted, grown, and harvested on-site. Today, it's two resident arborists who nurture a slew of different tree breeds throughout the seasons. In the nursery, visitors will find more than 1,500 "balled and burlap" trees?whose trunks have been wrapped in burlap, and roots have been carefully nestled into a protective covering?including spruce, white pine, and balsam fir. During the summer months, full lines of landscape-ready trees line the walls. Come Christmas, they supply locals with lush, fragrant trees, including fraser fir, balsam fir, canaan fir, and pine. The folks at B&J encourage their patrons to bring along the whole family to enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, popcorn, cups of hot cocoa, a Santa Claus impersonator, and?at some sites?chainsaw carvings.
