Did you know that tree service is the most dangerous occupation in America with over 118 deaths per 100,000?
Education, insurance and experience are the most important qualifications a tree service company can posses. Hiring a tree service company without these rare qualifications could put you, your home, automobile, lawn, landscape and pocketbook at great risks.
Most homeowners are unaware of the great risks of hiring a tree service company without general liability and worker's compensation. A company possessing general liability covers objects or structure on your property if they become damaged for any reason. Worker's compensation covers any one employee working for the company you hired if any injuries may happen to them.
If the company you hire does not posses worker's compensation then you are at risk, you would be responsible for any injuries that could happen on your property. Homeowners insurance does not cover nor protect you from injuries to hired help. We recommend that you obtain a copy of an Accord Certificate of General Liability & Worker's Compensation. You may also want to challenge the insurance by contacting the insurance company to make sure that the insurance is paid and up to date with the correct coverage's for tree service.
