How to choose the right tree service in NewCastle

Sunshine Cables to Remove Tree Limbs!

What can you do to protect yourself when hiring a tree service? How do you choose the right company? What are the necessary steps to avoiding tree service scams? Unfortunately for you, and unfortunately for those of us trying to run legitimate tree companies, our industry is full of con artists, fly-by-night crooks, and tree services that produce less than desirable results. We would like to offer you a few of our insights based on our years of experience. These should help point you in the right direction:

Insurance Policies

If a company has an accident, and does not have the proper insurance, then you are liable. You will have to pay for repairs to your property and any injuries that may have occurred as a result of the accident.

Better Business Bureau

Ensure that the company in question is accredited with the Better Business Bureau. Although the BBB is not as strong as they used to be, BBB accreditation is still a good indicator of a reputable service. Also, find out what kind of rating the company has. The tree service should be in good standing with BBB.


Do some research to find out what kind of reputation the tree service has with its local community. Check to see whether the company in question is a member of any reputable trade association, such as the Tree Care Industry Association or International Society of Arboriculture. How long has the company been in business? Do they have any complaints on local forums, discussion groups, etc? Ask the company for references, if you need the extra assurance. Especially for expensive projects, doing a bit of research is always worth the time.

Too Cheap?

If a price seems too good to be true, it probably is. We all like a bargain. But if a tree removal company is giving you a very low price, it may be because they a) have no experience, b) do not have the proper insurances and certifications, or c) they only intend to complete part of the project.

Multiple Estimates

You may be asking yourself, “how will I know if a price is too high or too low?” We recommend that you get estimates from at least three different companies. From the three estimates you should get some sense of what price is normal. If possible, we recommend that you meet with each representative in person. This will give you a chance to judge the company’s expertise and professionalism. It will also enable you to ask questions, learn more about what is involved, and so on.
