4 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Tree Trimming Service

If you’re hiring a tree trimming service, this is no time to skimp on quality or experience. These professionals will be working close to your home, with heavy machinery and other dangerous equipment, so you definitely want to assess their skill and knowledge level. Investigate these four questions as you consider your options.

How much experience do they have? Not only should you consider years of experience, but what kind? Where did your contact get his training and certifications? Does this professional specialize in a particular area of tree care? Can they adequately perform all types of tree service, or do they specialize in just one or two areas?

Check their reputation. The internet has provided us with some of the best word-of-mouth tools ever available. Check Google and Yelp reviews, and scroll websites of any tree trimming service you’re considering. Many will include reviews from satisfied customers. You can also call the Better Business Bureau to check records there.

What type of cleanup is included? One tree trimming service might provide a removal or trimming for what seems like a competitive price, but then you discover cleanup is not included. Other services are more comprehensive, and will leave your yard looking as though nothing ever happened. Choose a company based on the level of service you require, because tree cleanup is not easy!

Is the tree trimming service insured and certified? Ask whether the service is company is certified to perform the necessary services. The most up-to-date training will help to ensure that the job is done safely. But of course, if an accident does occur, you will also want your service provider to carry liability insurance. Ask about that upfront, too.
