There’s no question that hiring an Olympia tree care company is a big decision. But with hundreds of options out there, the last thing you want to do is end up making the wrong choice and ending up with subpar work. That’s why the ISA certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care would like to provide you with the following top mistakes to avoid as you go through this process.
Little Or No Experience
We get it — everyone has to start somewhere before getting the proper amount of experience. However, it’s important to hire someone with industry training when it comes to caring for your trees. Many Olympia homeowners don’t realize the level of damage that can occur if they hire someone who’s never worked on trees. This is where Westcoast Tree Care comes into play. We are ISA certified and offer years of experience in the field. With us, it’s safe to say we know tree care inside and out. Don’t let someone trick you into thinking they know what they are doing just because they have a truck and chainsaw. Take the time to ask about their experience and do your research to verify what they say.
No Licensing & Insurance
It’s one thing for an Olympia tree care company to claim they have years of experience. However, it’s something completely different for them to be properly licensed and insured to get the job done. This is essential because if something goes wrong and the workers on your property don’t have the necessary certifications, it’s you who can be held liable.
Why risk being held responsible for the actions of a shady tree care company? At Westcoast Tree Care, we are fully licensed, insured, and bonded to perform all the services we offer on our website. On top of that, we are ISA certified, which means we had to undergo a three-year training period, pass an exam covering all aspects of arboriculture, and maintain this certification through continuing education.
Let’s say you’ve found an Olympia tree care company that seems to have been around for years and maintains the proper licensing and insurance. Everything should be good, right? Not so fast. Take the time to see what previous customers have to say about their work. At Westcoast Tree Care, we suggest requesting references from people who a company has worked with. While it may be unrealistic to expect to find five-star reviews from every customer, you obviously want to avoid hiring someone with a less-than-stellar record.
Little Service Variety
At Westcoast Tree Care, we doubt that you’ll want to hire different companies to manage different tree care projects. That’s why we offer a wide variety of services, including:
- Preventative tree care
- Tree pruning
- Windsail reduction
- Tree removal
- Fire Risk abatement
- View enhancement
