WILTON - Many tree cutters in southwestern Connecticut say they are still working overtime to meet the demand for storm cleanup following the October nor'easter. The owner of one tree cutting service says the storm aftermath has been very lucrative for his business. Conal Breslin, an Irish immigrant, runs Celtic Tree Services of New England, and says he has never seen a single weather event generate this much profit. "We call people back to get to them right away when they do call," Breslin says. He says he and his six part-time employees expect to work seven days a week into the middle of January to finally finish the job.97 percent of Redding without power after stormWilton gets hammered by October storm
