How to Find the Right Tree Service?
First, you need to set your goals and, second, your available budget. When it comes to tree removals, just about any monkey with a chainsaw and a ladder can remove the tree. But when it comes to high-profile or hazardous tree removals, it truly matters who you choose and why. Not all companies are the same and come with different skills and quality work sets. Always make sure they carry general liability and Workers Comp insurance. I always say to go with who makes you feel the most comfortable and is most confident with their product. Tree removal comes with the potential for a lot of unwanted yard damage. The more reputable the company, the more likely you are to have a great result at the end.
A lot of the time, you truly do get what you pay for, especially for tree trimming. As explained, trimming is both the best and worst thing you can do for your tree (Safe tree trimming practices). The skill of the laborers making the cuts and their ability to make proper, clean, and concise cuts has a great deal, if not almost everything, to do with how the tree will respond. Someone can easily damage the tree irreversibly by removing too much or by cutting into bad reaction zones. You need to determine what you want out of your tree service before you call. You only have four types of services to choose from: First, being the best budget, the cheapest price. Second, the best value. This is like the difference between Walmart and Trader Joe’s. Third and fourth are premium and luxury. There are very few tree services that offer these types of products. Normally, these services can only be found through consulting arborists. Ensure the service you're considering for tree trimming has a certified arborist on site while work is performed. Too many times I've seen a tree service advertise they are certified, but the certified person (usually the owner/salesman) is not even performing any of the work.
