North Carolina Professional Tree Service Company.


North Carolina residents usually hire a tree service if they have a tree that needs trimming, needs removal, if a tree is looking sick, or they wish to plant a new one. People typically hire tree companies for their experience and convenience while in some cases, it is an absolute necessity such as in case of storm damage.

Working with trees requires the use of special equipment, experience, and time to avoid injuring people and causing damage to property. It is therefore advisable to be safe and hire the best North Carolina tree service company to handle your tree needs. Below you will find a list of questions you should ask when searching for a tree service.

You should ask the tree service that you plan to hire several important questions. The tree service should be more than willing to provide answers to these questions if they haven’t already mentioned them in a conversation or on their website.

How Long Have You Been in Business?

Nobody wants an inexperience company causing a lot of ruckus on their property. It is important to ensure that your preferred tree service is not less than 10 years old. Tree companies less than 10 years old will fail eventually since they don’t do their business properly. The industry is filled with shady businesses that go from one neighborhood to the next in search of business. Don’t allow such unseasoned companies to scam you.

Are Your Certified Arborists Paid Staff?

You obviously don’t want the company you hire to use subcontracted certified arborists. Some North Carolina tree service companies pretend that they are big with certified arborists, but are actually a one-person operation that’s not actually full time. It is important to ensure that the tree service you hire has not less than 2 certified arborists on staff with a good amount of credentials.

How Will You Reduce Potential Damage to My Yard?

A reputable tree service should provide a ready answer to the question immediately. Protecting the things around the tree or trees being worked on is a critical part of the job. The company should have an explanation for the precautions it plans to take while working in your yard. It is never a good sign when the company says that it will simply fill in its tire tracks with dirt. At the very least, the company should use plywood to protect your lawn from damage caused by its equipment.

What Equipment Do You Have/ Will You Be Using?

A seasoned tree service should have a tool for any tree service job. Except for cranes, the company should not have to hire equipment.  Does the company’s staff use protective gear, such as hard hats, gloves, glasses, ear plugs, and vests? It is an old, loud truck or is it something that’s properly cared for? All these questions are important.

Do You Have Insurance?

Insurance is a major consideration. If somebody working for an uninsured tree service was to fall out of a tree it could be bad news for you. Ensure that the company you hire is insured and that this fact is stated in the contract. A seasoned tree service should readily talk to you about all these technicalities.

Are You Licensed/What Are Your Credentials?

A trustworthy and skilled tree company should be licensed and have credentials. The credentials should ideally be listed on their website and they should be ready to prove that they are licensed. The company you hire should at least have or hire professionals with certification and accreditation from the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) or the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).

Do You Have Any Referrals or Reviews?

It is obviously advisable to find your own referrals or reviews online to avoid any biased reviews, but it is still important to look at some reviews no matter what. Reviews will give you a better idea of what the tree service and its customer service are like.

The Bottom Line

It is important to protect both yourself and your property by hiring the right tree care professionals to handle dangerous jobs. Ask the questions discussed here to help you find the best North Carolina tree service company for the best results.
