Will they be working in proximity to electrical conductors?
If so, they will need to be Approved Line-Clearance Arborist’s.
What are their credentials?
Try to hire a company with an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certified arborist, a Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) Accredited Business or one employing a Certified Tree Care Safety Professional (CTSP).
Will they provide an up-to-date certificate of insurance and a copy of their work contract?
This should be your first and most important question. You want to ensure they are properly insured and that you will not be liable for damage, accidents or injuries.
Is there a cost for an estimate?
No, all estimates are free of charge. Call our office and an estimator will meet you at the property and provide you with an estimate. If your schedule is such that you can’t be there we will simply call you from the site, discuss what you would like to have done and provide you with an estimate.
