What You Need to Know Before Hiring a Denver Tree Service Company

The Front Range of Colorado, including the Denver metro area, can get hard by spring snowstorms. These storms pack a wallop with heavy, wet snow that can do a number on trees. When the trees on your property experience damage because of a storm—or for any other reason—it’s time to call a Denver tree service company. Damaged trees are not only unsightly, but if they fall over or if a branch falls, this can also be a dangerous situation. It can also get expensive if the tree or branch falls on a home, garage, or automobile. It’s best to leave the work to the professionals.

Rather than simply Googling the term “Denver tree service,” there are some steps you should take to ensure you get the best company for the job. Here are some tips on what to look for.

Ask People for Their Recommendations

Ask your neighbors, friends, and family what tree service company they might recommend. You can get details on their experience with the company and the company’s employees.
It’s also a good idea to look for the company’s online reviews. If there are any negative reviews, see how the company handled the review. This can be very telling as the company’s customer service philosophy.

Check Out Their Credentials

A good tree service company has solid credentials as well as the appropriate licenses. If they do not have property trained employees, they could end up causing more damage to your trees. Ask about the type of backgrounds their employees have. You want to work with a company that hires workers who have plenty of experience servicing trees. Find out if they have any arborists on staff.

Check Out Their Insurance Coverage

You do not want a tree company without adequate insurance coverage working anywhere near your property. Check into whether or not the tree service company has both liability insurance as well as worker's compensation insurance. Liability insurance covers any damage that might occur to your home or to any of your belongings, covering expenses to fix or replace items. Worker’s compensation protects you as well as the tree service company employees in case they are injured while working on your property. It also provides you with protection if there is a lawsuit resulting from the company working on your trees.

Get an Estimate Upfront

Make sure you get an estimate before they begin work—and it’s a good idea to get the estimate in writing. If a company shows even a slight hesitation about providing an estimate, this should be viewed as a red flag. They might be out to make extra money at your expense by charging you additional fees you didn’t even want.
