What should I look for in a tree company?
Look for professional certifications and licenses and, most importantly, experience and
reputation. It is also important to look for a company with an active and aggressive
safety program. Our employees are trained in safety and employ the most up to date
safety technology. It is very important that any tree company you choose to do
business with have all the correct insurance in place and should be available to answer
your questions about any of these issues.
Why is it necessary for a tree company to have insurance?
By its very nature, tree work is dangerous and should only be done by a professional.
Liability insurance is important because it protects you, the homeowner, and your
property from potential risk and damage. Workman’s compensation insurance protects
tree professionals while they are working on a job. When you are seeking to hire a tree
company, be sure to request proof of comprehensive insurance from their insurance
carrier before any work is started. If you have any doubts, call the insurance carrier for
Why should I prine my trees?
Trees need to be pruned for a number of reasons including: safety, aesthetics and tree
health. Broken or dead branches can be dangerous if they fall - oftentimes without
warning, even on a calm day! If a tree’s branches grow too big for the tree or are too
close to your roof or chimney, they need to be pruned and cleared to prevent them from
damaging your home. From an aesthetic perspective, pruning can help make a tree look
better or provide you with a better view of your property or horizon. If you are thinking
about pruning a tree, be sure to use a Certified Arborist. Unskilled and uneducated
workers can damage your trees and property.
What if a tree needs to be removed, will my property be protected?

Why is it important to have a multi-service company?
There is a lot of shared knowledge in a company that can provide clients with multiple
services. Having a full range of services provides clients with a one-stop-shop for getting the most enjoyment out of your outdoor home. Multiple tree and lawn care services provides ongoing maintenance of your outdoor home and allows us to detect and resolve potential problems early on.
What are some of the benefits of keeping or planting trees on my property?
There are many. The natural beauty that a tree brings to your outdoor home is beyond
measure. Seeing seasons turn through the changes in a tree, seeing the leaves emerge
during early spring, enjoying the beauty of the blooming season and watching the tree
as it prepares for winter reminds us of the natural cycles in life. Planting a tree can be a
wonderful experience. As you care for the tree, as years pass and as you watch it grow
it becomes a part of your outdoor home and will eventually become an old friend.
