Top 5 Questions For Your Tree Service Tech
While it may be easy to trim a few branches that hang low to the ground, many tree jobs are simply too large and too dangerous for the average person. When working with trees, one must think about electrical lines, wildlife, nearby structures and other factors that could endanger you while working high in the canopy. However, hiring a tree service may be just as risky if you aren’t asking them the right questions. Here are the top five things you should ask before hiring anybody to work on trees at your home or business!
- Do they have a list of references?
Any reputable company will be more than willing to provide references and contact information to prove the quality of their work. If you’re being denied the references you seek, start looking for other companies that will provide the peace of mind you’re looking for.
- What techniques and equipment will they use?
When it comes to tree service, you’ll want to ask about how the work will be conducted. If they are to use heavy equipment or be driving across your lawn, be sure they understand what parts of the yard are off limits, where important sprinkler or electric lines are, and let it be known that you expect the job to go on without damage done to your yard or your home.
- How long will the job take?
The length of a job is based on the work that needs to be done, how many trees are being worked on, the weather, and a number of other factors. Get an estimate from the tree service, and have them explain the reason for the length of time they quote you. If one company seems like they’re cutting things a little short, that could be an indication of poor quality work.
- Will they do a professional job?
There are various factors that determine the professionalism of a company. Among the questions you need answered are: do they have a website, do they have pictures of their work, do they respond to phone calls, is their equipment clean and well taken care of, etc.? Ask questions before hiring any company; true professionals will have the answers and be more than willing to give you insight as to how they do business.
- Do they use spikes for climbing trees?
Spikes should only be used in the event that the tree is going to be removed. Using spikes for climbing can cause damaging wounds that will ultimately end up killing your trees. Request that spikes not be used for tree services such as pruning, limb removal and other services where the tree will be staying put.
Protect yourself, your home, and your trees by asking the right questions before hiring any tree service.
