To Hire Or Not To Hire A Tree Service Company

Trees are nature's gift to man. From clothing to shelter, trees have provided men with immeasurable gifts to propagate life and essential resources. But what if these nature's wonders bring immense threat to our lives? What if tree branches or limbs begin to show signs of fall that might occur in any event of strong winds or storm? What if the roots start popping out or the tree grows incredibly taller to the extent of already covering your property draped like a jungle? With these potential problems you're definitely going to need tree services.

Clearing a damaged or fallen tree in your backyard is a big "NO" for those who like indulging in do-it-yourself activities because doing tree trimming and grinding are things done by a professional. This time, we cannot discount the fact that trees are big and you'll need the right equipment to clear them off your property. Only a company that offers residential and commercial tree care and lot clearing services can safely and effectively perform these tasks. However, if you prefer to work on your own, consider answering the following questions: (a) Are you confident enough to do the job? and (b) Are you sure that you don't need the help of a professional, not even a nanosecond

Many homeowners would prefer to perform tree removal and other related tree maintenance by themselves to save money instead of spending on labor cost. They don't realize that this job requires sufficient knowledge, experience and the proper tools. Novice tree cutters fail to sort out the dangers of falling and decaying trees plus the proper usage of equipment. For example, using a ladder while cutting or trimming the tree on a windy day is not advisable for the ladder might be jerked a bit by wind blows. First timers are also lazy to read the equipment's manual thoroughly thus posing danger to themselves by mishandling the equipment.

There's always a big difference between the job execution of a professional and that of a novice. So if you have doubts about your capacity, it would be better to let the experts handle the job than risk your life with a project that you barely have knowledge of.

Now the advantages of hiring a pro have dawned on you, the next question is how to pick a reputable tree service company with expertise?

Start hiring a certified arborist. The rule of thumb is opting for a licensed company that are bonded and insured. Technically, non-licensed contractors are now allowed to operate since they can cause dangerous in the job site. Meanwhile, in case a client demands a refund for incomplete or unsuccessful work, a bonded and insured company is obliged to pay the amount. Go around your area and make a list of certified contractors offering pruning and trimming in Cave Creek AZ, stump grinding in Phoenix, deep root fertilization in Phoenix or any tree service that you need.

Through phone, you can screen prospective contractors and there's no harm in asking for a free estimate. Also make a background check by asking the company, its basic information and references. To become more secure, call its insurance provider and verify whether the company is real or a mere con artist. Your inquisitiveness will help you cut your list down to the good ones.
