Best places to find tree service companies near me
There are a couple of places you can look when trying the best priced tree service near you. Below we show you a couple of options and what to look for.
Following these tips will allow you to lower the average price of estimates you receive for professional tree services.
The local newspaper
Newspapers are a little bit hit and miss these days. As you get little to no information about the company in there, just a company name, a short sales pitch and a phone number.
They were once the go-to source for all trades, but the problem is newspapers don’t care who advertising in their paper. If you have money you can advertise.
They may ask for a license number to display, but they rarely check the company out. As long as they pay the fee then they are good to go.
Try to avoid the local paper.
Do an internet search instead
In 2019 you find a large majority of searches for contractors such as tree services local to you are done online and for very good reason.

What paperwork you MUST ask arborists for before hiring
There are a few standard things did you need to research and look for before you hire an arborist. We’re going to go through those below.
You need to make sure you check all these boxes BEFORE you engage them for a quote, as there are quite a few unlicensed gardeners who do not have the experience all the expertise to perform tree cutting or removal.
They also may give you very poor advice as they are probably not aware of the laws for tree trimming and removal in your city, which can land you in hot water if you remove a tree without a council permit.
For more information on council permits in your area, have a look at the tree preservation ordinance for your city here.
Your local tree maintenance service should have a minimum of 3 years’ experience under his or her belt.
Ideally you would have someone with 7 to 10 years industry experience, but a minimum of 3 ensures that they’ve been in the game long enough to be able to tackle your job with ease.

Always check reviews
This is a big one. When looking at reviews of companies, make sure they have at least 15 reviews or more. Most people can find 15 friends with a Gmail account to give them a positive review. But if they have 20, 30 or even 40+ really good reviews, it’s a little hard to fake that level of positive feedback.
Are they insured and licensed arborists?
Never been shy in asking for an arborists credentials. They would be used to it by now because the industry lends itself to shady tradesmen. You will find them more than happy to prove who they say they are.
Hiring a tree service near me
It’s always advisable to get at least 3 quotes/estimates from tree services near you before deciding on one. This is because the first one might give a quote that sounds reasonable, and might be a great salesman, but it could well be too high.
Or maybe the second or third guy is offering to spread free mulch for your garden afterwards.
The point is you don’t know what you’re missing out on, unless you wait for all 3 quotes to come in before making your decision.
#1. You should always get a separate estimate on tree removal/ land clearing including the tree stump, and another estimate with stump grinding separate. Stump removal is relatively easy to do yourself and if you stand to save $400 + it might be worthwhile.
#2. The average cost of using professional tree removal experts is much higher than using a lawn care company that also provides tree care services. They can only handle smaller jobs, such as trees smaller than a single story house, but it is worth the saving.
#3. Going the DIY route and removing the tree yourself can save you hundreds. You need to be aware that using a chainsaw is dangerous and I do not recommend you take on a tree any larger than 15 feet. Anything larger you should leave to a certified arborist.
#4. Make sure you comply with the city’s rules with tree removal by obtaining a permit first if required and planting trees to replace the ones removed.
