   I am Mike Resnik,

        From 1967 through 2006 I was a philosophy professor at UNC-Chapel Hill, specializing in Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics. My wife, Janet, whose pottery you may know, and I have lived on our farm on Collins Mountain Road since 1967. We have been busy clearing pastures, building barns, studios and rental houses, and raising horses and timber ever since. Janet gave me my first "bobcat  as an anniversary present. I learned to use it on our farm by clearing pasture land, digging two small ponds, building a three quarter mile road to our children’s house sites, clearing and landscaping their lots, and excavating their basements.
        My business was born when our son, Dmitri, suggested that I "stop pushing over OUR trees and go push over somebody else’s."
  I am in this business because I enjoy the challenges it provides, and will dedicate myself to doing a good job for you. My equipment is suited for working on a small scale; I can get into most backyards.

        My rates are very reasonable; you can probably hire me for an afternoon for less than you can rent anything like my equipment, and get more done to boot. If you decide to use my services, I will be able to turn to your job within days or weeks rather than months.
