How to Find it with Elite Tree Care

Deciding to remove a tree is not an easy choice to make, but sometimes it’s a necessary one. It’s also not an easy process, which is why a pro should handle it. Once you decide to remove a tree, the next choice is what professional tree removal company to call. Learn what to look for in a tree care pro, and how Elite Tree Care can exceed your expectations.

Tree Removal Questions to Consider

Proper tree removal requires the right equipment and knowledge for optimal results. Many companies claim they can come and cut down your tree. Just make sure of a few things first:

  1. Should the tree come down? You may see the tree as hazardous, but a pro will know if it needs to be removed or simply pruned or treated for infestation.
  2. Are there other alternatives? If the tree is infested with pests or disease or structurally unsound there could be treatment options to save the tree.
  3. Is the surrounding area safe? From utility lines and other structures to existing desirable plants, a pro will consider more than just the tree to help ensure no other problems arise during removal.

This is why it’s important to have a professional tree removal company come and assess the situation before any work is done. Not only does Elite Tree Care offer free quotes, but we will come out to see the tree for ourselves and propose a plan for safe and efficient removal. Any other reputable company should do the same.

Signs of a Professional Tree Removal Company

Choosing the right tree removal company is crucial. Whether you’re dealing with disease or a tight space, you want a pro with relevant experience to take the job. Here’s what to look for to ensure you hire a reputable service and how Elite Tree Care fits the bill.

  1. Credentials. Verify that the tree removal company is certified, insured, and obtains the proper permits for the job. Is there an affiliation with the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) or Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA)? This is a sure sign the company adheres to industry standards and best practices. Insurance is equally important to cover any potential damage to your property or injuries that may occur during the job. ISA-certified arborists at Elite Tree Care are fully insured and experienced with state-of-the-art equipment for the safe removal of trees in a variety of conditions.
  2. Experience. Since there are many reasons for why a tree should be removed, you want a company with expertise in both local conditions and different tree species. Elite Tree Care pros are highly trained with over 30 years of experience and are dedicated to continued education in their field.
  3. Services. Tree removal involves more than simply cutting down a tree. There’s also a stump to grind and a large amount of debris to remove. Make sure the company you choose quotes all necessary aspects of the job. Elite Tree Care offers everything from pruning and preservation to stump removal and emergency tree services.
  4. Environmentally Friendly. Responsible tree removal companies also care about how their work impacts the surrounding environment. Elite Tree Care offers tree preservation to help protect trees from construction, tree planting services, and plant health care methods.
  5. Pricing Estimates. It’s important to obtain written estimates that detail the scope of work, including any additional services like stump grinding or debris removal. Elite Tree Care offers free quotes with a plan of action.
  6. References. These days, it’s easy to find customer reviews. Research the company’s reputation to gauge their reliability and customer service. You can check out Elite Tree Care’s homepage for a glimpse at what some of our customers are saying.
