Tree Trimming

St. Louis tree companyIf you need a tree service to work on your home or business, then you have to take care to hire the right one. While there are many STL companies that trim trees or remove deadfall, you don’t want to hire just anyone, because the quality of service, prices, and what you get for the money can greatly vary from service company to service company. Probably the best way to make sure that you have a good experience with your tree service is to ask for recommendations and reviews from your friends, family, and neighbors. Many people will have used a tree service at one point or another, so you may be able to get a good idea of which companies are good and which are not from the people you know. If that does not help, consider checking Yelp and Google Places for online business reviews, although online items should be taken with a grain of salt. 

Check for Companies that Have Been In Business for a While – While you can hire a company that has just opened its doors, you have absolutely no guarantee that they have the experience or the skill to do a good job. By looking for tree services that have at least a year of experience, and hopefully more, you ensure that your tree service is worth the money.

Hiring the Right St Louis Tree Service

Get Full Quotes from Two or Three Companies – If there are multiple companies available in the area then your best bet is to call as many of them as possible, or the closest ones, and get a full quote on their services. Make sure you ask questions, and ask them to include everything such as travel to and from the location, any equipment you need, and other similar services. The best way to compare companies is to get a quote on what services they are offering and what you get for what you pay, and then comparing those with other services. Keep in mind that the cheapest is not always the best.

Make Sure They Have the Right Equipment – Finally, if you’re hiring a tree service to do any sort of work that requires equipment, then you have to make sure that they have that equipment, and the license to use it. For example, if you need the tops of trees trimmed, then they need a boom truck. If you need large deadfall to be removed, then you need either a crane, or a company with a truck capable of hauling it away. Because a lot of large equipment does require specific licenses, you may want to specifically ask if they have them when you make the hire. 

Finally, you should talk to your tree service on the phone before the hire, and you can use that as your final decision making tactic. If they are polite, seem decent, or respectful, then there is no reason not to make the hire. On the other hand, if they are rude, too busy for you, or don’t know what you are asking about, it may not be a good idea.
