That sounds like the norm for most new guys in business or gypsies who work for a company and steal their customers by undercutting their prices. Had the same thing happen with my pool guy and fence company. My suggestions to anyone is dont pay cash to anyone unless they are willing to complete the job before getting paid in full. Cash is not king anymore so pay with credit cards incase things go south and pay your credit with the cash. Get a rewards card so you can get points that equal the cash saving anyway.
hey guys... wanted to throw this out there in case you call the tree assassin.  he did a great job cutting our trees, and the price was right.

BUT

he disappeared without finishing the clean up.  he likes to get paid at the end of the day so he can pay his guys, My suggestion is that  you hold back enough that he wants to come finish the job.  I've called and texted and he said he's be there "tomorrow".  9 days later I still have trees all over my back yard
