Hiring an Arborist or Tree Service

To help us find you a local California Tree Service Company, please fill out the form to receive a tree pruning, tree removal, insect or disease control, or stump grinding estimate.

There are several things to keep in mind when you decide to hire an arborist or tree service. Writing down important questions, or tree care needs, is one way to make sure you won’t forget anything when you call the arborist or tree service.

When you call the arborist or tree service have a list of the trees or shrubs that you want the arborist or tree service representative to inspect. Also, let the arborist or tree service know if you need tree pruning or tree removal. It also helps to let the arborist or tree service know if the trees to be worked on are in the front yard or in the backyard. If you’re interested in tree removal it will help to tie a ribbon around the tree before the arborist or tree service representative inspects your trees.

If you have a heavily wooded property it may be necessary to meet the arborist or tree service representative when he/she inspects your trees. If you don’t have a lot of trees the arborist or tree service representative can probably inspect your trees and leave the estimate for the tree pruning or tree removal at your door.

If you do meet with the arborist from the tree service you may want to take notes on any tree maintenance recommendation he or she makes. Also, by insisting on a written estimate that clearly states all tree pruning or tree removal work to be done, there will be no discrepancies when it comes time to pay the bill.

Never hesitate to ask the arborist or tree service representative questions about your trees and shrubs. Most arborists are happy to share their tree care knowledge with you. Here’s a list of some questions you might want to ask the arborist or tree service representative that inspects your trees:
  • Will the tree estimate include clean up of tree branches and removal of the wood from any tree removal?
  • Does the arborist or tree service specialize in the type of tree care work the job entails (tree pruning, tree removal, tree spraying, etc.)?
  • Does the arborist or tree service have the proper workman’s compensation and liability insurance? If you hire the arborist or tree service ask for a copy of their insurance.
  • Will the climbing arborist use spikes when tree pruning? Climbing spikes should only be used on tree removals.
  • Will heavy equipment be used driveways, sidewalks, or manicured lawn areas?
  • Will the arborist or tree service provide a written estimate detailing the extent of the tree pruning or tree removal work?
  • What are the payment terms accepted by the arborist or tree service?
