Hiring a tree service

Posted: Updated:

Just like when it comes to hiring someone dependable to take care of your car, you also want to hire someone who will do a good job working on your trees. Your best bet is to hire a qualified International Society of Arboriculture [ISA] Certified Arborist.

This is what you should do when it comes to hiring a tree service:


  • Leave pruning and removal to the professionals. They are trained in the caring, maintenance, and safety of trees.

  • Always ask for proof of insurance prior to hiring someone. A company that's reputable will have property and personal insurance, as well as workers' compensation.

  • Do not hire anyone who goes door-to-door asking for business. Most dependable companies do not solicit like that.

  • Do not have your trees topped. It actually does more harm than good by increasing recovery time and making the tree more dangerous.
