What to Expect from a Reputable Tree Service Company
Many tree service companies of the past were two men and a truck climbing up trees and cutting them down using a method called cut, swing and drop. This was not only dangerous but also caused unnecessary damage to lawns and property, and sometimes life and limb. Their core business model was cutting trees and selling firewood for stoves. We still have many tree climbers arriving in our fair city, usually accompanying a severe storm where tree damage has occurred. These workers are in most cases from out of state, unlicensed to do business in Florida but, because there is work to be performed, they show up with their ropes, chainsaws, climbing boots and harnesses and offer cut-rate prices to perform work. They carry no insurance and if hired and are injured, the property owner is responsible for all of the injuries sustained. Homeowners should be aware that trying to save a few dollars on a tree project performed by unlicensed and un-insured workers could potentially cause them thousands of dollars in insurance claims and sometimes property damage as well. These so-called tree services also have limited equipment to chip and haul the limbs and tree stalks away so the debris field can be scattered all over the place; on lawns, driveways and in the road with claims that the city will collect the wood piles. Beware! Today, times have changed for most of us and homeowners are much more diligent in their selection of companies they let perform work on their property. They understand that anyone hired to perform any service needs to be licensed and insured and that the responsibility for the worker should be the companies hired, not theirs.
