How to Hire a Professional Tree Care Company
Hiring a tree care company can be a stressful thing if you don’t know much about the business. Unfortunately there are many scammers out there as well as other companies that give everyone a bad name. However, if you follow these simple tips you should be able to find a professional in no time. You should be asking the following questions:
Are you licensed?: This is needed. Any legitimate company in Asheville will need to be licensed by North Carolina in order to work in Buncombe County. Make sure to ask.
Are you insured?: This is vital for anyone to work on your property. Insurance is needed if someone gets hurt or property is damaged. Since tree service can be dangerous, it’s a necessity that the company you hire has complete insurance for their tree company.
What kind of equipment do you have?: While not as important, you also don’t want someone showing up to remove an enormous tree out of your yard with a pickup truck and two chainsaws. For larger jobs, the tree care company should have industrial equipment such as wood chippers, tree climbing equipment, bucket trucks and more.
How big is your staff/tree climbers?: Depending on the size of your tree that needs pruning or removal, a big team of tree workers can get the job done faster for you.
How much experience do you have?: Experience is an important thing to have because you can’t learn how to work on trees from a book. Experienced professionals will do the job right for you without injuring or damaging your tree(s).
Do you have references?: References are the last option. Although not a requirement, it’s always good to make sure that the company your hiring actually does good work.
