Whether you just want the trees on your property trimmed or you have a dangerous tree that needs to be cut down, finding the right tree company can be a challenge for most ordinary homeowners. This is especially true for first-time homeowners and for those who have never had such services done before. In our experience as a long-time Atlanta tree service company, your search for the right tree company should begin with the following:

Research the Company

The Internet is an incredible tool that allows savvy users to look up virtually any company and find out all kinds of information about them. Use it. You will find that it will save you a lot of time and possible errors. Visit consumer rating sites, the Better Business Bureau website for your location, forums, etc., to find out as much as you can about the companies you’re considering to hire.

Look for the Right Equipment

Tree work can be dangerous and time-consuming work. Make sure the company you go with has the necessary safety equipment and gear to get the job done properly and in a timely fashion. Climbers need the proper saddle and arborist climbing ropes to do their job. Ground personnel should be equipped with protective gear such as face shields and steel toe boots. You are definitely not looking for a man in just a hard hat with a ladder.

Proof of Adequate Insurance

Ask to see a copy of the company’s liability insurance. Make sure it’s current and sufficient for the work you have in mind for them to do.

Upfront Money

Be wary of companies that ask you for a deposit before they begin any work. This is not the accepted practice in the industry. You should only pay for tree work after the job is completed and you are satisfied with the results.

Know Exactly What Services Are Included

Some companies will only trim dead branches but not shape the tree; others will do both, but will not haul away the debris. Be clear on the services you want performed and get an estimate based on all those services from several companies.
