What to Look for in a Tree Company

Hiring any company that works in the service industry requires some basic knowledge. While some dismiss the tree service as somewhat mundane labor, the truth is, it can be dangerous work–both for the workers who perform the task and your property.

Shoddy workmanship can result in injury and your property sustaining damage.

If you need some work done and are thinking of hiring a tree company, we’ve identified four attributes that you should keep an eye out for.

1. Safety

As we’ve previously mentioned, working with trees can be very dangerous. Knowing that the crew working on your property are following all the necessary safety precautions will not only give you peace of mind, but it will ensure that the job is done correctly and safely. This means having an ISA-certified arborist present every time the crew shows up to work.

2. Fully Licensed and Insured

Before hiring any tree service, take the time to check their municipal license and make sure they offer full coverage for their employees. Liability insurance will cover any accidental damage that might occur on your property.

3. Reputation

People talk. And when it comes to business practices, both good and bad, people are sometimes all too eager to voice their opinion. Online review sites such as Yelp are a good place to start. If you know anyone who has had substantial work done, ask them who they recommend. If a company feels like it might be irresponsible and careless, it’s because they most likely are.

4. Pricing

When it comes to purchasing any form of goods or services. The old expression of “you get what you pay for” is a truth etched in stone. Shop around. Compare prices and find what the average rate is.

If a company is offering services at a very low price that undercuts its competitors, consider it a red flag. Usually, low rates are offered by companies that are inexperienced, uninsured, and might possibly be without safe equipment to work on your tree properly.
