First Choice Tree Work takes over the risk of your tree work by being Licensed, Bonded and Insured. No matter what happens on your property while we are there…we have you covered.
Fall and even winter is the best time to prune trees. This is particularly true if you plan to remove a number of live branches. Waiting until after the growing season allows the nutrients to return to roots and be stored for Spring. Deadwood and hazardous branches can be removed anytime.
An arborist will use the best and most modern practices to care for your trees. Using climbing spikes to perform work on a beloved tree can puncture the live tissue under the bark(cambium). This causes unnecessary damage and can lead to problems.
THE MOST COMMON CONCERNS WE HEAR ARE:
- Is the Tree Service Company Insured?
- What is The Cost of the Service?
- What Will My Yard Look Like When They Leave?
- Can I keep my firewood? Of course you can! Ask your tree professional.
The most significant consideration is whether the company you are speaking with is insured. Lack of proper insurance places the liability back onto the homeowner and in many cases your insurance carrier will deny a claim because of not having the proper coverage.
Our Liability Insurance and Worker’s Compensation coverage protects you from having to cover the unforeseen event. Unfortunately, our industry is a dangerous one. Trips to the emergency room, broken bones, and chainsaw injuries could easily cost a homeowner $4,000 or more. In the event of a more serious accident, the sky is the limit. In addition to medical expenses, our coverage’s protects a homeowner against having to pay for an employee’s lost wages (he could be out of work 6-8 weeks or longer). Don’t forget about physical therapy, doctors’ visits, and pain medication…all of which, the homeowner would be responsible for if the contractor isn’t doing the right thing, by providing Worker’s Compensation insurance coverage you can verify.
We Promise to offer you a fair and reasonable cost estimate to do the job professionally and to your complete satisfaction every time we are asked.
We Promise to leave your yard clean and we will do this to your complete satisfaction or we will return to make sure we get it right…guaranteed!
