T hree shiny red trucks were parked in a lot across the street from the Little League fields on Liberty Street in Concord on Monday afternoon. The trucks’ drivers, linemen and employees of Lucas Tree Experts, were using the remainder of their lunch break to tend to their respective trucks, carefully wiping away the salt and dirt that had collected on them or popping the hoods to check fluids. They’d done work in Maine over Christmas, helping towns blanketed in snow and ice. On Monday, the men were between jobs for the day and headed to take care of tree limbs that were cluttering power lines elsewhere in town. “It’s always busy,” said Tim Gregson as he signed some paperwork before climbing back into the cab and firing up his engine.
