'If a tree stops growing, it dies'

There are 1 comment on the WisInfo story from Oct 16, 2007, titled 'If a tree stops growing, it dies'. In it, WisInfo reports that:

“We need to be big enough to be competitive, but small enough to give service and eliminate a large amount of overhead. The tree that doesn't grow, soon dies, so we need to continue to grow”

CAMPBELLSPORT - Campbellsport Building Supply, locally known as CBS, doesn't have everything that some lumber companies have, but the owners certainly aren't apologizing. via WisInfo

When I was a kid (circa 1942), I'd go down to Brittingham & Hixon lumber yard and buy small pieces of 1x1 lumber to carve airplanes for the "war effort". If they didn't have small pieces, they'd cut off 6 inches from much longer pieces for me because that's all I could afford.
That's customer service!
