Sticks and Stones Outdoor Services opens

Andrew Nigretto and Keegan Cookston have just opened Sticks and Stones Outdoor Services on Orcas.

Andrew Nigretto and Keegan Cookston have been friends since kindergarten.

“It’s been a dream to start my own business,” Nigretto said. “Everybody has been so happy for us.”

The two, who are born and raised on Orcas, have opened Sticks and Stones Outdoor Services. They are licensed, bonded and insured and offer tree work like clearing and thinning, excavation, landscaping and fence building.
