Top five things to consider before hiring a tree maintenance company

July 4, 2018



Some may say that pruning a few trees or removing a tree stump is an easy task, when in reality it can prove a very difficult job which can be dangerous and cause extensive damage if not done correctly.


Before hiring a company, we advise carrying out research to find the best company for the requirements. We’ve put together five top things to ask about when looking for a good arboricultural company:


1: Insurance

This is one of the most important things you will need to know. This ensures that they are fully insured and that you will not be liable for any damage, accidents or injuries. Hiring a company without proper insurance is a risk you don’t want to take.


2: Creditability

Have a look at the company’s online presence, do they have one? Do they share pictures of the tree work that they do? It’s best to select a business that is professional and knows what they’re doing, checking out their online presence can give an insight as to how credible a company are.


3: Quotation

Always get a quote/estimate that’s specific to your job before the work starts. Be specific about what services you need and ask the company to visit the job to get an estimate, in writing, before any work begins.


4: Services & Equipment

If you’re looking for a specific service, such as tree felling or stump removal, remember to speak to the company in mind to make sure that they can provide that specific service and have the correct experience and equipment to carry it out correctly & safely.


5: Knowledge

As with any work that can be difficult and dangerous, it’s always better to use a company that are experienced, have a fully-uniformed team with the correct safety equipment and know the ins and outs of their job.
