Three Questions To Ask When You Need To Hire A Tree Service

Aubrey Kelly

Many tree-related tasks around your yard are best left to the professional for multiple reasons. Some jobs, such as cutting down a tree or even trimming off large branches, can be dangerous and can quickly get out of hand. Other jobs, such as removing certain limbs of a tree suffering from a disease, require the care of a professional so that the healthy parts of the tree can survive. If you have a need for a tree service, it's beneficial to call a couple businesses to discuss the project you need done. Upon evaluating cost estimates and answering these three questions, you can pick the right candidate.

Do You Carry Liability Insurance?

Given the dangerous nature of working around trees, you must be vigilant about hiring a tree service that has liability insurance for all of its employees. This is a good practice for any contractor you hire, but especially important when those who visit your property or home will be performing a job that is risky. Tree work is dangerous because of the risk of falling off a ladder or getting cut with a saw and it's imperative to ensure that the tree service carries liability insurance to protect yourself financially in the event of an accident.

How Will You Ensure My Yard Is Protected?

Any time there's a tree being trimmed or chopped down, there's a risk of aesthetic damage to your yard – your grass can get torn up by dragged branches and garden plants can be crushed. By asking about the steps taken to protect your yard, you'll give the tree service representative a chance to highlight the crew's professionalism. You should hear plans such as lowering cut branches to the ground carefully with ropes to avoid having them make divots in your lawn, for example.

Will You Take Care Of The Brush Disposal?

Everything from a small trimming job to cutting an entire tree down will create a significant amount of brush. It's important to confirm that the tree service crew will remove these items from your property to leave your yard looking as it did before the job began. Reputable tree services will take care of this job – in many cases, they'll chip the brush in a machine parked in your driveway or in front of your home and carry it away. Some tree services will even offer you the wood chips if you wish to use them for landscaping purposes.
