Basic Things to Know About Tree Services

By: Jake Hyet

Do you have a tree in your yard that needs a little maintenance? Is your neighbor's tree tilting dangerously close to your house? For these and a host of other reasons, you need to know the basics involved in finding the best tree service, one like Canopy Tree Services Sydney. So here are some tips to help you out:

Credentials and License

Look into whether or not the company has the proper credentials and if they are licensed before you let them set foot on your property. A company which uses employees that aren't properly trained is one that you want to avoid. Same thing goes if they aren't licensed. By the way, running a tree-removal service without a license is illegal.

Check Insurance

You want to be absolutely certain that the company you hire has liability insurance and worker's compensation insurance. Liability insurance is your guarantee that if a company is responsible for causing any damage to your home or belongings, it will cover the expenses entailed. Worker's compensation insurance protects not only the company's employees but you as well in case an employee should be injured while working on your property. Also, it protects you from a lawsuit if there should be an accident while the company is trimming or cutting down the trees.


Always request that the owner of the company provide references from past customers. It's your right as the person doing the hiring to know what other people thought about the services they received. If the owner balks, then move on to another company. A reputable company like Canopy Tree Services Sydney will be more than happy to provide you with all the references you want. After all, the company you select will be doing some pretty dangerous work which could cause serious damage to your property or your neighbor's if any mistakes are made.


Always get an estimate for the job and make sure it's in print even for a company like Canopy Tree Lopping Sydney. If the company is reluctant to do this, it could be an indication that the company is not as honest as you had hoped.

Employee Training

Inquire about the employees' backgrounds. You want a company like Canopy Tree Lopping Sydney which uses workers with years of experience. Also ask if there is an arborist on staff.


Ask about the equipment that will be used. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be sure that the company has all of the equipment that will be required in order to complete the job.
