Tree Service Plano: What To Look For In A Tree Service Company

If you have an overgrown tree that needs to be trimmed or a few that require pruning, a dead limb that needs cutting off, it’s advisable to seek professional tree service Plano. There’s more to cutting down, pruning, or trimming tree branches than just picking up a power saw to chop limbs off. Professional tree service is of particular importance if you only need a few branches trimmed or pruned to improve its aesthetic appeal or productivity. Some of the important factors to consider when shopping for tree services include:

1.    Professionalism
As mentioned earlier, you should only hire someone with prior knowledge on how to handle trees, and with the required certification for the same. You however have to choose between a tree lopper and an arborist.  Tree loppers offer the most basic tree services which include uprooting trees and cutting down unwanted branches. An arborist is, however, better trained and has the technical knowledge on how to take care of various trees. As a tree farmer, an arborist would be the best pick for you.

2.    Certification and Insurance
Whether using the services of a tree lopper or an arborist, it would be advisable to check the contractor’s proof of training and certifications as well. In addition to this, the company or contractor should have some comprehensive insurance policy covering both the contractor/employee and the trees being worked on. The insurance policy will not only be protecting your trees (from a shoddy job) but also help reduce liability on your side should a contractor be injured while in your compound.

3.    Equipment
Any professional tree lopper or arborist should have all the required tools and equipment needed to take care of trees. Arborists invest in a wide assortment of equipment, and the best quality they can find. Whether looking for an arborist or a tree lopper, it’s best that you only pick one with all the required equipment for the job.

4.    Customer Reviews and Ratings
It would also be wise to check customer reviews and ratings against a tree service company in Plano.  While most companies work hard to maintain a clean record and reputation, there are those out there for your money and not a quality service. Reading through customer reviews will give you first-hand information on what to expect from the company.

If a company has what it takes to take care of your plants and trees, you can then discuss the price.  One thing you however should know is that tree loppers will always be much cheaper than arborists, though arborists provide better quality job and do care about your trees.  Any reputable company offering tree service Plano should be ready to provide a more personalized quote for a service.
