Testimonials

We had a huge old pine that had died and we needed a tree removal service to take it away. After calling a bunch of others, All Clear was the first to offer up an estimate (which was very affordable, as it turned out), so I hired them. Glen and his crew were awesome and cleaned up the mess so well that you wouldn't have known there was a tree removed! Great experience!

I called All Clear to remove a tree on my property that was threatening to fall on my shed. They treated the whole tree removal as an emergency situation, and made me a priority, which I deeply appreciated. The shed is safe now, and I'm very happy with their work. Definitely give them a call!

All Clear Tree Service is the best tree trimmer out there. Bar none. I've contracted other tree trimming companies to trim my Acacias, but after about two or three trim jobs they really start to mail it in. Glen continues to surprise me with his trimming and his work ethic. Always a five star experience!

Hiring A Tree Service

First of all, let us discuss why there may be a need for you to hire a professional tree service.

Hiring a tree service like All Clear is often warranted for the following conditions:
  • A sick or diseased  tree
  • Tree removal
  • Tree trimming
  • Tree planting   

Most homeowners don’t have the experience or the equipment to get these things done fast and safely, which is why they hire tree service companies to do it for them.

Natural disasters can also create some serious yard work to be done like tree felling or tree removal that would require professional assistance. It is not a joke dealing with trees. You need to use special equipment, skilled manpower, and tree know-how in order to prevent any damage to person or property.  

The best thing you can do is to just hire professionals to do the job for you, but do you know what you should be looking for when selecting which tree service company to work with?  

Questions To Ask A Tree Service Company

There are plenty of questions you can ask a tree service expert. Legit pros won’t hesitate to answer your question since it is all in a day’s work, but it is possible these questions have already been addressed on their website or during your conversation.

How long has the tree service company provided services?

You only want to deal with experts and as much as possible want to avoid the newbies who may end up ruining your property.

Those companies who haven’t been around for that long often close their business because they cannot properly perform Arborist services. Remember that door-to-door contractors love preying on this industry in search of gullible people whom they can scam and this leaves a negative impression of most tree services. Protect yourself from scammers and only deal with reputable tree service companies.  

Do they have a certified Arborist on staff?

The culture of some tree trimming companies is to hire a contractual or part-time certified Arborist to boost their company’s image.   

How can they reduce the damage to your property?

A real pro won’t have a hard time answering this question. Not only is it important for them to get the job done, it is also crucial that they protect your property while doing so. They should be able to assure you how they will protect your property and identify the specific measures they will take. They should have specific answers to your questions and not give you vague answers. At the least, have them use plywood to protect your yard from the heavy equipment they use.  

What equipment will they be using?

An experienced tree service company has all the needed equipment and tools to get all sorts of tree services done efficiently and as quickly as possible. If a crane is necessary for a tree trimming, they should be able to provide it too. Ask if their equipment is OSHA-certified.
Aside from the actual equipment to be used in doing the job, do they also provide their workers with the proper protective gears like hard hats, gloves, vests, and earplugs? What’s the state of the truck the use?
All these things will give you an idea of what kind of a company you are dealing with. So, ask and don’t choose a tree service company in a haste.  

Do they have the right insurance coverage?

Correct insurance is a big issue when it comes to high-risk businesses like a tree service. You may be liable for injuries or damages incurred when work is being done on your property. Have everything written down in the contract and ensure they have sufficient coverage to begin with. A reputable company won’t shy away from these topics and will gladly comply with your inquiries.  

Ask for their credentials and license

Credentials and licenses are important in determining a trustworthy and reliable tree service company. You should be able to easily find their license number on their website. They should also be able to tell you which related organizations they are a member of.  

Do they have referrals or reviews?

While it is important to see reviews of their services on their own website, you’ll have a clearer picture of what they have to offer by checking out referrals or unprejudiced reviews on the web. Was there a problem with a tree felling that damaged property? Did they fail to clean up after a tree pruning session? You’ll learn about their customer service and the actual tree services they provide from other people’s experience with them.  

 Do Your Research

Ask related questions on the specific tree service you want to be done. No beating around the bush, as they say. Ask for their license, certification, insurance, and reviews to give you a better understanding of what the company is like. It will save you from costly mistakes of working with scams that are all around you now.  

Get a Quote

Reputable companies won’t hesitate to give out free quotations when asked.
Also, check out the breakdown of the estimate to find out how they charge for their services. Do they charge for the service as a whole or for every little thing they do?
Next, compare with the quotation from other companies before making a decision.  

Select your Tree Service
You can finally select the best tree service you’d like to work with after completing your research. Bear in mind it is not always wise to choose the one with the cheapest quote.

Only go with the best tree service company that can provide you the quality service you are looking for. All Clear Tree Service is that company.
