I think this could make for a great flyer or door hanger potentially if you were interested in marketing your tree removal services. Does anyone else have anything further to add to it?

HOW TO SELECT A TREE CONTRACTOR
• Insist on a site visit and clear tree markings of any removals.
• Get a written quote itemizing services to be provided.
• Verify workers compensation as well as personal and property damage insurance.
• Ask for and check references or visit other work sites where company has done tree work.
• Get more than one estimate unless you know and are comfortable with the vendor.
• Be wary of the individuals who go door-to-door and offer bargains for tree work.

QUESTIONS TO ASK CONTRACTORS
• Is all tree limb, tree trunk, and debris cleanup included?
• Is stump grinding included to a minimum of 6” below ground surface?
• How long will the job take from start to finish and when can you start?
• When will payment be required and what payment options do you offer?

INFORMATION A CONTRACTOR WILL NEED FROM YOU
• What your timeline is for completion.
• Do you plan on keeping the wood or do you want them to dispose of it.
• Number and approximate size of trees (diameter 4.5’ above ground) to be removed.
