So why would I hire you? That other guy is cheaper. Aren’t all tree trimmers the same?
Simply put. No.
The International Society of Arboriculture defines an arborist as a specialist in the care of individual trees. That means an arborist can determine how to prune your tree to keep it healthy, remove it when appropriate (and safely to save you a homeowner’s claim!), plant health care, and even plant trees.
Consider the qualifications of the person working on your trees carefully. Look for professional certifications from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) or Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA). Ask to see proof of insurance and call the insurance company to verify. Ask for references. Get more than one bid.
Our mountain community is fortunate to have several locally owned companies from big to small to meet your needs from individual tree pruning to large-scale fire mitigation. Shop local!
