What to Consider When Hiring an Arborist?

Choosing the right specialist or an arborist for your tree care is very important if you want the tree to stay healthy and last long. If you try to save money by handling your tree care yourself, the tree may end up suffering from terminal sickness or damages. If you need an arborist to take care of the trees in your home or business premises, please contact us at Sesmas Tree Service for a completely guaranteed tree care. The following are some factors to consider when hiring an arborist for your tree care;

The Certification

An expert arborist should have some years of experience working in the tree care service industry. They must have passed relevant exams organized by international professional tree care experts and passing such exams means the arborists have shown a high level of knowledge of tree care. An arborist can join several different professional associations but the International Society for Arboriculture (ISA), is perhaps the most recognized certification body. For this reason, you should pay attention to the certification of an arborist before hiring them.

Permits and Insurance

 When hiring an arborist, you must go for a certified arborist who is also insured. You should ask for proof of property damage insurance or personal insurance, and in some cases, you can request proof of workers' compensation policy. Make sure you confirm that the insurance cover has not expired and you can do this by contacting the insurance companies personally. Once the insurance coverage is confirmed, you need to confirm if the arborist is familiar with all the laws that require permits, just before the tree treatment service is performed.

Get Quotes and References

To have more assurance that you will get a good tree care service, you need to ask for references from the arborist and contact them personally, just to have some glimpse of their past works. You can call the referees to check images of previous tree services provided. Once you have checked for the references, you should ask the arborist for written estimates or quotes for their services. You may want to compare different quotes from different arborists while checking for references for previous works. Make sure the tree service commences only after you have signed a contract with the arborist. In Addition to specific tree service to be provided, the contract you signed with the arborist must also include total costs for the project, rates for any additional work and who is responsible for cleanup after services.
