5 things to look for when choosing a tree lopping service

Don’t book a local Tree Lopping Service unless they have these credentials

Growing trees is a lovely way to liven up your backyard. It can help clean the air around you and attract local wildlife. But without careful maintenance, your tree can become overgrown and start causing issues. Large roots can lift up pavers and concrete. Excess leaves can clog your gutters and weak branches can fall and cause damage to your house.

You can try cutting down your tree but it takes a lot of tools and knowledge to get it done right. If you’re cutting branches from up high it can be dangerous to reach them. You need the right ladders and safety gear. A safer and more efficient alternative is to book a local Tree Lopping service.

A Tree Lopping service is used to modify the shape of your tree. With the careful cutting of branches, a tree can be trained to grow in a certain direction. Damaged or dying sections of a tree are usually removed to promote better growth and health. These are the types of services you can expect from a professional Tree Lopper.

Now that you know what a Tree Lopper does, how do you decide which one to choose? A quick search on Google might show you dozens of results for Tree Loppers in your local area. One of the first things you need to know is what to look out for in a Tree Lopping service. If you would like to know what they are then read on to find out.

Insurance

No matter what home service you rely on at home it should always have decent insurance cover. Because no matter how organised or safe a business is, there is always the chance of something going wrong. Insurance will help cover the damage caused by anything that happens to your property during a Tree Lopping service.

So when you’re checking out the website of a local Tree Lopper, have a look at their credentials. They should be fully insured to carry out work at your property. A Tree Lopper should have public liability insurance, professional indemnity insurance, and work cover.

Reviews

Looking at reviews is one of the best ways to see how good a local service provider is. Your local Tree Loppers might have the customer testimonials displayed on their own website. There are also many online platforms you can rely on to find reviews of a business such as Google Reviews, Yelp, and productreview.com.au just to name a few.

Finding positive reviews for a Tree Lopper can give you more confidence that you’re making the right decision. Of course one of the best ways to get a review is by word of mouth. Ask someone you know personally about the Tree Lopping Service. Someone you know is far more likely to give you a detailed and honest review.

Full-service options

Be wary of Tree Lopping services that try to cut corners. An obvious sign of this is a service provider that can’t do everything associated with Tree Lopping. A good service provider should be able to inspect your tree, provide a free quote, carry out the Tree Lopping service and remove any debris that’s left behind.

If a Tree Lopper can’t offer all the services required for removing a tree then you’ll be forced to contact another service to finish the job. This can end up costing you more money than just getting one service provider to take care of everything.

Focus on safety

Tree Lopping can involve many elements of danger like working from heights. The risks involved in this profession can put you and the service provider in danger. That’s why it’s so important for a Tree Lopper to be using all the right safety equipment and practices.

You have every right to ask a Tree Lopper what safety measures will be in place during the job. This can help you identify how well a Tree Lopper has evaluated your property, identified risks, and implemented measures to protect the property and everyone near it.

Are they certified?

Asking a Tree Lopper if they are certified is one of the best ways to check their credentials. You’ll find that many Tree Loppers are members of industry associations that they can only be a part of after receiving certification.

If your Tree Lopper is a member then it means they are officially recognised as professionals that meet industry standards and are up to date with current industry knowledge and regulations.
