Favreau Forestry’s Top 4 Tips When Hiring a Tree Company

1. Safety First! If the tree company does not value their own safety (utilizing proper personal safety equipment) they most likely will not value yours or your property.

2. Make sure they are licensed and insured—Anyone can by a chainsaw and pickup truck.

3. Get the estimate in writing and do not put money down. —There should never be a need for money in advance for a tree company. No materials need to be purchased in advance.


4. Google is your friend—Online research of the company can help you easily access their website and any reviews they have received.

  1. It’s good to know that you can find tree companies that use the safest equipment to ensure a safe tree removal. There’s a dead tree on my property that has been quite the eye sore, but I haven’t wanted to have it removed for fear it would damage my home. I like that I can rely on good professionals to handle it safely!

  2. I have a pretty old tree in my front yard that I’d like taken down in the next couple of weeks.

I’ll definitely take the time to look at qualifications and experience to ensure I hire a tree service that will do the job right.

  4. Wow, it’s interesting that you talked about how you should hire a company that values their own safety as well as yours. I have a cousin who is looking to hire tree services before spring sets in. I’ll be sure to talk to him about hiring a company that really values safety on both ends.

I appreciate your comment on how if the tree service company isn’t using proper equipment and concerned about their own safety, they probably aren’t that concerned about the safety of you or your property either.

If I ever need a tree service, I will be sure to take your advice and find one that is licensed, insured, and uses proper equipment.
