3 Easy Tips for Choosing a Tree Service Company, Sparta, Georgia

Georgia’s heavy storms can uproot trees, making tree removal an important safety measure. Although many tree service providers boast experience and credentials to tackle any project, the team at Tidwell’s Tree Service knows there are certain qualifications every reputable tree service company should meet. Their knowledge comes from over 30 years of providing reliable and affordable tree trimming, stump grinding, and tree removal services in Macon and Milledgeville.

Whether you need emergency tree removal or regular tree maintenance, follow these tips from Tidwell’s Tree Service to ensure you hire the right company for the job:     

  • Ask For Estimates: When looking for a tree service company, always ask for estimates. Reach out to three or four tree maintenance companies for comparisons. If your project is extensive, ask the providers how many projects of your size they have worked on and how long each took to complete. By comparison shopping, you will find a tree service company that can handle the project within your budget and timeframe.
  • Make Sure Workers Are Licensed & Insured: Tree maintenance, from emergency tree removal to basic tree trimming, can be dangerous. To protect yourself in case of an unfortunate accident, the tree service provider you hire should be licensed and insured. Liability insurance will protect you if damage is done to your property during tree maintenance. If a tree service specialist is injured on the job, workers’ compensation insurance can help pay the worker’s claim. A license is just as important as insurance, and many states require contractors to have licenses. If you hire an unlicensed tree service company, you could be subject to penalties.
  • tree serviceCheck Affiliations: A good tree service company should belong to trade associations like the Tree Care Industry Association or International Society of Arboriculture. These organizations educate members on best practices, changes in industry guidelines, and more. When a tree service company is affiliated with these organizations, it shows they are always striving to improve their practices for customers. If your trees are suffering from disease, ask if the company has an arborist on staff. This trained tree specialist can investigate tree problems and find the best solutions.
