If you have broken limbs, overgrown branches, and just need a tree to be removed. If it’s your first time hiring and you don’t know personally people that you can trust to do it for you, it can be very hard to choose. How do you decide to choose? You need an insured and bonded company, give accurate estimates and punctual. It’s important to protect yourself, your family and your property by hiring a tree care professional for dangerous jobs. It’s equally important to protect yourself and your “tree investment” by knowing the tips below because they will be helpful and very important points to know how to find the best tree service.


1. Consider the risks carefully

You need hire those who are re trained and very much equipped professionals to do the work. Do your own research for “tree work accident” and reflect on what you find. It is far more difficult and dangerous job than most of us realize.  You research will make you a believer of that fact. But it’s not always the case though, tree work can be done safely, efficiently, and at an accurate price point if done by well-equipped and experienced professionals. But you have to keep in mind that risking someone at getting hurt because you think you can save a few bucks is not fun.

2. Make sure the company is legit

Do you research or ask people if they have business licenses and if they are insured? Almost anyone can buy a chainsaw at the home depot and put up an ad everywhere and dubbing themselves a tree service. Yes, it can be a nice way to make money on the sidelines but tree work is a very dangerous work and it will require the needed long training, skills, proper safety gears, rigging gears, insurances, and licenses.

3. Check for safety gear.

The personnel that is sent to you to do the job must at least use helmets among the face shields, protective glasses and the steel toe boots. The personnel must have the state of the art equipment in safety and climbing gear including all the other tools and gears that is needed. If someone shows up to you with just a ladder and nothing else, you should politely ask them to leave. You don’t want any damages in your property, so ask them that you need a professional with the training.

4. Get the estimate

Make sure the estimate is in writing so you can protect yourself. You must find a company that will give accurate estimates for the given quality of work. Don’t take someone’s word for it. A legit tree service business will always put their offer in writing, won’t delay the work and with no questions asked.

5. Do not give any money immediately

A tree service must never ask for any money up front. There are no materials that is needed for doing tree work, only pure labor and enough manpower. So be careful, always be cautious, and don’t be gullible.
