How to Keep Your Trees Looking Tip-Top: A Guide to Choosing the Right Tree

The first step in keeping your trees looking tip-top is having a plan. You wouldn’t paint your house without a game plan and the same goes for your trees. That’s where a tree service comes in. 

But with so many options out there, how do you know which one is right for you and your trees? Never fear, we’re here to help. Read on for our guide to choosing the right tree service.

Researching Local Tree Service Companies

Research, research, research: Just like you wouldn’t hire a babysitter off the internet without doing your due diligence, you shouldn’t hire a tree service without researching them first. Ask around for recommendations from friends, family, and neighbors who have used tree services in the past. Once you’ve got a few names, check them out online. You want to look for a company that is doing tree service marketing in your area. A quick Google search will reveal any red flags—like a string of bad reviews—that should cause you to scratch a company off your list.

Getting A Quote From A Local Tree Service

Once you’ve done your research and narrowed down your options, it’s time to start getting quotes from different tree service companies. When requesting quotes, be sure to ask about what services are included in the price. Some companies will quote you a low rate but then try to upsell you on additional services once they arrive. 

It’s also important to ask if the quote is an estimate or set in stone. If it’s an estimate, find out how the final price will be determined—will it be based on the size of the job or an hourly rate?   

Get Your Tree Trimming Quote In Writing

Once you’ve chosen a company, make sure you get everything in writing before work begins. This includes not only the total cost of the job but also what services will be performed. This protects you in case anything goes wrong or if the company tries to upsell you on additional services mid-job. 


Choosing the right tree service doesn’t have to be daunting. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your trees are well taken care of—and that your wallet doesn’t take too big of a hit.
