Drive through your community any time of the year, and you may see tree care companies on residential or commercial sites involved in pruning and general tree work.

Do you notice how they are working? It’s unfortunate, but these scenarios do occur:

  • Debris from downed limbs and branches littering the yard or cast aside, spilling onto a nearby street and blocking traffic
  • Crew not wearing safety helmets, gloves, and glasses for protection
  • Worker operating a small front-end loader jumping off and the still-running vehicle moves across the yard

So, what are the things to look for to know that you’re hiring a true tree care professional? At first glance, appearance is key, especially in how they’re dressed, the safety gear they’re wearing, their approach to you, and their explanation of the work being done. Their work ethic, care, and responsibility should easily be recognizable as they trim your trees, pile debris neatly, and safely remove it, leaving the landscape clean and to your satisfaction.
