How To Spot a Safety-Conscious Tree Service Professional

You’ve got two or three trees in your yard that need to be trimmed back and possibly removed for safety reasons. You could do it yourself, but seeing as that plan didn’t exactly work out for you or your trees the last time, you realize it’s better to call a tree service professional. Not only will the job be done right by calling a pro, but you can guarantee it will be done safely. Or will it? 

Contrary to popular belief, not everyone who claims to know what they are doing with tree pruning and removal is a safety-conscious tree service professional. What’s worse is that many homeowners don’t realize they hired the wrong person until it’s too late.

Whether you hire Clean Edge Tree Service & Removal in Denton, TX, or not, we pride ourselves on keeping homeowners educated.

Here are a few easy ways to spot a safety-conscious tree service professional.

They have the right equipment

Pruning or removing trees requires more than a pole saw and a pickup truck. If someone shows up with only these items, they could risk injuring you or themselves and cause additional damage to your trees and property. So, which equipment should you be looking for in a safety-conscious tree service professional? Here’s a quick list of what they should be wearing and have on hand:

  • Hard hat and protective eyewear (goggles, face shield, etc.)
  • Gloves to protect their hands
  • Non-slip boots
  • Professional tree harnesses, ropes, carabiners, etc.
  • Hearing protection for loud equipment
  • Cut-resistant arm and leg protection

They have the right machinery

Some tree services are easy enough that they only require a chainsaw and a few ropes and harnesses to manually climb the tree and get the job done. Others require chainsaws, arbor lifts to reach greater heights, stump grinders, wood chippers, etc., to ensure the job is completed efficiently, correctly, and safely. A safety-conscious tree service professional has the equipment, experience, and technical know-how to handle any tree scenario — from a downed tree in the middle of a storm to pruning a few branches in hard-to-reach or delicate areas, stump grinding, and removing trees that tower 83 feet in the air.

They don’t work alone

If someone claiming to be a safety-conscious tree service professional intends to tackle your project alone, they shouldn’t be trusted. It’s that simple. Too many things can go wrong (slip and fall, hit by falling branches, collisions, electrical shocks, cutting injury, damage to property, etc.) with any tree job — even what looks like an easy job. Therefore, at least two people need to be on-site at all times.

They know their surroundings 

Someone who really knows what they’re doing will assess their surroundings before making a single cut or recommendation. This includes checking for potential hazards (power lines, bad weather, nearby structures, etc.) and ensuring ample room for branches to fall safely. If there isn’t ample room for branches to fall safely, they should be able to create a plan quickly, mark off the area for falling debris, coordinate with their team members, and communicate everything to you before the project begins.
