Most people want the maximum value for their hard-earned money. Unfortunately, cheaper isn’t always better. While saving money is inherently desirable, it’s not always the best route. Why? In order to provide you with the cheapest tree care services, many companies skimp on various factors to cut corners that end up costing you more in the long run.
When it comes to trimming, pruning, fire risk abatement, view enhancement, windsail reduction, removal, and other tree care services, it’s essential to prioritize the value of the services involved over cost-cutting. That’s why Westcoast Tree Care would like to provide you with the following reasons why cheaper isn’t always better for West Linn tree care.
Cheap Tree Care Vs. Value
While affordable tree care isn’t automatically a bad thing, any company that underbids others may be cutting necessary corners or employing bad tree care practices that a homeowner won’t be expected to know about.
When you’re looking for someone to care for your trees, it’s essential to do your research and pay attention to the work they offer. If their proposal doesn’t spell out exactly what they’re going to do and how they plan on doing it, you may end up with a frustrating and incomplete job.
As a homeowner, it’s your responsibility to ask a tree care company to explain how they work and what to expect. An ISA-certified arborist like Westcoast Tree Care will be glad to explain their services and why they are important. If they don’t, you could end up with the following headaches once the job has been completed.
- Damage to your home or property from careless or unsafe work. Even worse, you could be held liable if the tree care company you hire isn’t insured.
- Left behind debris on you or a neighbors property.
- Additional charges for services that weren’t included in their proposal.
- Damage to your trees that’s lasting and irreparable, such as bad pruning cuts or topping.
Why You Could End Up Paying More
Bad pruning cuts or topping often result in damage that permanently disfigures a tree that it can’t recover from. This means you will end up paying more to have a certified arborist correct their work or have a tree removed altogether. Either way, it will cost you much more down the road than having the job done right the first time.
When you have the ISA-certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care to evaluate your trees, we will immediately spot any poor tree care practices that have been done in the past. We will then explain what we need to do to correct these problems or if a tree needs to be removed. While you may be pleasantly surprised with the price of a cheap tree care service, you’ll quickly discover how much it will cost to correct it. That’s why it’s better to pay for high-quality work vs. cheap tree care services.
