Damage to my burning bush

Damage to my burning bush
Posted by Pete Stenborg ( from Illinois on 2008-06-19 09:25:00

I own a townhouse and have 2 burning bushes at the corner of my patio. The bushes are over 20 years old. Two weeks ago the landscapers scraped the trunk with their lawn mower and took the bork off leaving a bare spot 3" wide ny 5" high. I have asked that the lanscaper admit responsibility and promise to replace the bush should it die. The crew supervisor said he doesn't think it will die. I asked for his credentials, they won't give them to me. They also said that the bush could die from other things.
I need an opinion. Should I hire my own expert to look at it?
