Caring for your trees is essential for their proper growth and survival. However, when they grow beyond 6-7 feet in height, they become increasingly difficult to take care of. You need particular types of equipment to reach higher heights. It is best to hire professional tree care service providers to care for such trees. Although finding the right tree care provider is a challenging task in itself.

Here are five questions you need to ask your tree care provider before hiring them:

How long have they been in this business?

Nothing beats experience in any service, and the same stands true for tree care as well. However, the actual value of a business’s expertise cannot be determined by just the number of years. Look at their safety record during those years and the amount of goodwill they have earned.

Can they provide references and testimonials?

In the modern world, reviews and testimonials reside on Google, Yellowpages, and other such websites. Check them before you choose your tree care service provider. If all the reviews are good, it is probably questionable as it is not possible to make every customer happy. You can also ask them for references and check their credibility the old-school way.

Do you have certified arborists?

Arborists are certified professionals who can inspect a tree and diagnose any problems. They possess the necessary expertise to treat any known diseases and also guide you to provide them the best care. However, you need to be cautious about any fraudulent practices and ask your tree care provider for certified arborists for your tree care needs.

Do you provide emergency tree services?

Emergency tree services are an essential service that some tree care service providers offer. Emergency tree services mean they are available 24 X 7 for emergencies such as a tree falling due to storms or hazardous tree removal

Before you hire your tree care provider, ask them whether they provide emergency tree care services.

How safe are your crew and their equipment?

Tree care includes using hazardous chemicals and dangerous equipment that need proper care and maintenance and professional expertise so that no one is injured during the work. Ask your tree care service provider whether their employees are adequately trained to use such materials and whether they use high-quality equipment. You should also check whether they have worker’s insurance so that in case of any unfortunate injuries, you are not liable to make payments.
