How to hire a tree expert

Choosing Your Tree Professional

Once you have narrowed down what specific tree service you require, the next step is to think about the type of people that you want for the job. There are some crucial questions to consider:

Do they have references?

Their record is important, so ask around. Even if you located them in the phone book or online, knowing they did a professional job on other homes and businesses in the area will reassure you, and reinforce the idea that they are the right company for your job.

How long will they take?

This is an area where many companies can take unfair advantage of customers. A dishonest service will linger longer than necessary and rack up rates. Find out beforehand an estimate of how long the job should realistically take. By asking, you can pinpoint the most efficient companies, as well as confirm what you’ve found out though references; former customers will be able to tell you whether or not the estimated time and price given to them at the beginning was actually what the final bill ended up looking like.

What equipment are they using?

This may seem like an odd thing to focus on, but the tools a company is using determines the quality of their work and the professionalism of their service. They should be using things like axes, chainsaws, safety gear, and so forth. Listen for items like that to be named when you ask questions, and if it sounds like they’re missing paramount tools, you may want to think twice about using their tree removal service.

Can they provide a copy of their license and insurance?

If the company isn’t happy to show you these, it should send up warning flags. All tree removal services should have both in order to prove that they are certified by the state to practice and that they are able to protect their employees in the event of injury.
