As mentioned above, the tree care industry is very dangerous! For this reason, hiring a certified and insured professional is essential.
Unfortunately, not all arborists run their business as a tree shop should be. Homeowners may feel like they are saving money by paying an uncertified and uninsured worker “under the table,” but there are serious risks involved.
Injuries can occur for which the property owner can be held liable. Also, non-professional companies are less likely to do professional work. Consumers may end up paying more to repair damage to their property, or they may lose a valuable tree due to lack of care.
