Are “Do It Yourself” Stump Removal Methods as Safe as Some Say?

Many “do it yourself” stump removal systems proclaim to be fast and easy, replacing a professional stump grinder. Stump removal would not be as large of a percentage of our business if those methods were that fast or that easy. Most “do it yourself” methods involve months of waiting for the caustic chemicals involved to work. And do you want to be introducing these chemicals into the environment where your children and pets play?

    Quality Tree Care Services In Rockland County are not inexpensive.

    A true tree professional must carry several kinds of insurance as well as pay for expensive and specialized equipment. Beware of estimates that fall well below the average. There may be hidden costs, or the company or individual may not be fully insured or trained. When you have tree problems in Rockland, remember the old-time saying “Quality isn’t expensive…it is priceless”. At Suffern Tree, we will never sacrifice quality. Your job will be done properly, the first time and every time.

    Checklist To Help You When Hiring A Tree Service

    1. Make sure the Tree professional you are considering is local, with a track record to prove it. Check, their website to see if they have a deep connection with the community. If they do, it is a good sign. If they are based in the same community they serve and have been operating for a long time, the odds are they have a very good track record.  Ask the service for testimonials and reviews of their service and check the web for them too. Finally check with the Better Business Bureau and the Chamber of Commerce to see if there are complaints.
    2. Ask what tree care education and training the tree service you are considering has. Have they invested in the proper education that will enable them to not only do the job but to do it in the manner that is safest for you and your trees?
    3. Ask for certificates of insurance, including proof of liability for personal and property damage as well as worker’s compensation and Rockland County Home Improvement License.
    4. Ask for local references. Take a look at some of the work, and if possible, talk with former clients. Experience, education, and a good reputation are signs of a true tree professional.  It has been said that you cannot teach people to care… they either do or they do not.  However, checking with past customers and reading reviews are great ways to determine if the business cares about its quality, reputation, and customers.
    5. Be sure you understand the scope of what work is to be done and for what amount of money. It is generally not a good idea to pay in full until the work is completed.
    6. Beware of prices that are too good to be true. The NYS Dept of Environmental Conservations states: “Beware of estimates that fall well below the average. There may be hidden costs or the professional may not be fully insured or trained.”
    7. Make sure that your tree professional is dedicated to keeping your trees as healthy as possible. If they are, they will not use climbing spikes more than necessary and, will prune and cut your trees while focusing on their health. Beware the service that rushes through the job.
    8. A true tree professional will leave your property neat and clean. Additionally, they will give you accurate and professional advice in a friendly manner. Lastly, their crews will be professional and respectful of you, your family, and your property.
