Some landscaping companies that offer snow removal services in Massachusetts report that snowstorms in February have boosted their business and payrolls. However, the need for their services is uncertain and the work brings additional costs. "Our trucks take a beating, equipment goes down in the middle of the night and our employees aren't working their regular rate at all hours of the night," said one landscaper. Meanwhile, the city of Natick uses a $270,000 Snow Dragon to melt collected snow.
