GUIDE FOR HIRING AN ARBORIST
One should give thought when choosing a qualified arborist. You want an arborist who will perform the work correctly and not pose a risk to the tree. What are some things you can look for when hiring a tree care company?
Most importantly, make sure the company is bonded, licensed and insured. An unqualified person may not have proper insurance, leaving the customer with a liability if something were to go wrong.
Ask for references.
Select a company that has a proven track record. Think of it as hiring a doctor for your trees. You want someone who knows what they are doing and someone who knows how to apply preventive care to your trees. Ask the company you are considering for references and then follow up on those references.
Avoid arborists who recommend excessive pruning.
Reputable arborists rarely recommend tree topping. More commonly, they will discuss various options to address tree conditions and situations.
Get bids from more than one tree care specialist.
This way you can determine which bid offers the best combination of cost, scope of work, skill, and professionalism. Don’t pay in full before the work is done. A reputable arborist will rarely ask for payment up front.
Don’t allow a tree worker to climb your trees using spikes or spurs.
This can cause wounds to your tree making it susceptible to insects and disease.
