5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Tree Service Company

Gainesville FL tree careIf you’re looking for Gainesville tree services such as trimming or tree removal, Mr. Tree and Lawn Service is here to help! We pride ourselves on providing the best tree care in Gainesville, with safe, knowledgeable, and professional service. Tree service companies can vary greatly in the level of service they provide, so always be sure to ask these five questions before choosing a company.

How to hire the right company for Gainesville tree services

  1. Get detailed estimates- Make sure the estimate is in writing, details each service to be performed along with its individual price, and the scope of the job. Be careful not to compare “apples and oranges”; the estimates should be broken down into individual services so you can get an accurate comparison, and you should make sure that the services compared are actually comparable.
  2. Ask about procedures- Some tree removers use large equipment while others use hand-held tools. Always understand what equipment will be used as heavy machinery driving across sprinkler systems/septic tanks can cause expensive damage. Be sure to let the tree service company know the location of sprinkler heads or any other obstacles to watch out for.
  3. Project length- This should be listed in writing on your estimate and specify exact hours/days for the project as well as whether they are consecutive or not.  Be sure to ask what happens if a project goes over.
  4. Professionalism- Landscaping is all about aesthetics, so if the Gainsville tree services provider you choose doesn’t take care of their equipment, trucks, website or employee appearance, how can you trust them with your yard?
  5. OSHA standards- Finally, be certain the company is compliant with OSHA safety standards, providing and enforcing the use of hard hats and personal protective equipment for all workers.
