Trees are fantastic natural features in a yard, but they are so much more than just another plant outside your home. Mature trees provide shade for homes, which can reduce energy consumption during the summer, and they can also mitigate the effects of heavy rain by absorbing water and reducing flooding. What’s more, these mature trees can actually promote an increase in your property value and boost your home’s curb appeal.
Unfortunately, mature trees can also present certain problems for homeowners. For example, trees that aren’t properly tended to can lose large branches during fall and winter storms, which can lead to property damage and injury. Because of this, calling for tree service is imperative, and you want to hire the best team for the job. Following a few guidelines can help you hire the right company to work with your trees:
- Ask for references: Always ask the company that you are considering for references. Most service providers will be able to give you a list of people who will offer their recommendations. You can also look at their website or online review sites to find out what other people have said about their experience working with a particular company.
- Verify credentials and certification: Insurance, licensure and bonding should always be verified before you hire a company. These credentials demonstrate professionalism, expertise and care for customers. Insurance and licensing also helps protect your property and possessions in the event that something goes wrong during the course of routine tree service.
- Find out about project specifications: It can be helpful to do some research into the service that you need so that you understand exactly what is required and what the best practices are. Knowing about the service you need will give you more context while you are speaking with the company that you hire. You will be able to ask questions to help you ensure that the service will be completed in accordance with proper safety guidelines and equipment.
- Verify which services you can get: Some companies have very specific specialties, while others handle a broad range of tree services. In many cases, it’s best to choose a company that can tackle all of the tree services that you need so that you don’t have to shop around for multiple providers. Make sure that the company you select has experience with the specific service you need, and take advantage of some of the other services that they offer.
