Published On: July 27th, 20212.7 min read

Are you in need of tree service in Coventry, CT but not sure who to hire? Before you hire anyone, there are a few factors to consider first. You want the tree service you hire to be made up of reputable professionals.

To ensure they are, you’ll need to know how to choose tree services. In the guide below, there are several factors for you to consider to help you find the best tree services near you. After conducting a search for “tree service near me” don’t stop there.

Continue reading the guide below for a list of those factors to consider before hiring the right tree service for you.

1. Ask About Experience

One of the first factors to consider is their experience. Ask each tree service you’re considering about their experience. How many years have they been in the tree service business?

You want to find someone who has several years of experience because this shows they’re dedicated and know how to handle a variety of situations.

2. Look at Reviews and References

Now you can look at reviews and references. Search their social media pages and website for posted reviews. You can also check review sites and search for the tree service’s name to find more reviews.

After taking these steps, contact each tree service and ask for references. Call each reference and ask a few questions you may have regarding the tree service and what to expect from hiring them.

3. Check Certifications

Don’t forget to check their certifications either. Does the tree service have certified tree arborists on staff? Certified arborists are essential for any arborist service.

They should have at least one certified arborist on staff, which they can show proof of. You can also consider asking for proof of a business license to ensure they’re reputable.

4. Find Proof of Insurance

A tree service with insurance is crucial. You want to make sure they can show you proof of insurance before you hire them. Why?

If something were to happen while on your property, such as an accident or injury, then there needs to be insurance to protect everyone involved. The same is true if your property were to be damaged. There needs to be insurance to cover the costs.

5. Know About the Services Offered

You should always ask about the different types of tree services offered. Not all businesses offer the same type of services. For example, will you require tree removal?

Do you need a tree to be preserved? Have you considered who you’ll contact in case of a tree emergency? Know what type of services you need or may need in the future and then find a tree service that offers all those services.

Search for “Tree Service Near Me” and Use These Tips

We had the A-team on our big job of 14+ trees (13 dead ash) in 3 different areas of our property, none of which were particularly easy to get to. With the added bonus of having drainage throughout the yard and avoiding the septic tank. I had 3 other companies come and look, one ghosted me!! 1 came and said no thank you, the third gave me a similar quote to Justin's, but you could tell he didn't want the job and wasn't as clear about how he'd go about it. Justin came in and was completely confident on how his team could get it done. And with a bucket truck - no cranes needed. (two of the above were talking cranes). Kyle, Kyle and Not Kyle (Cody) were great!! They worked hard and got it all done in 3 days!! They were nice, easy to talk to, piled the massive amount of trees in a great spot for the log truck. I thought taking down dead trees wouldn't open things up that much, but wow did it! I love how open and cleared out everything looks!! Lindsey and Kate were fabulous and accommodating talking about the cost of the job and log truck. And now I can add flowers and plants in the brighter area. FYI probably not going to plant trees... but some rhodies if I can keep the deer off them. (O: Thank you to ArborTech!! Cheers, until I can budget for the backyard.

The tree estimate and removal process had a quick turnaround (one week) and was coordinated around my schedule. Very accommodating. The team that showed up for the job was very professional and asked questions along the way to better meet my needs. Very affordable and highly recommend to anyone needing work done with trees!

I more than appreciate great workers...your crew is amazing! the physical ability, the mathematical knowledge even if innate, and the eye for art (cleaning up my white pines to beautiful trees) is a hard combo to find in someone. Your climber has all those skills and more. Your pricing was very reasonable! The care your crew took to ensure everything was clean and in better condition than when they came was more than apreciated by me. Even my neighbors said something! Thank you! I will call you again for future tree maintenance!

We enjoy working with the Arbortech team, from start to finish. Professional and respectful. We just had 8, 100 ft + trees removed and could not be happier with the results. We recommend Arbortech.
Arbortech is a great business to deal with. They did a big job quickly, professionally, and left our property in good condition. Lindsey, Justin, and their crews were all terrific. Highly recommend.

I needed to have a large Norway maple tree removed and wanted to get at least three estimates. Eric's tree service came out and gave me a somewhat reasonable quote of $3500, then a week later before I had gotten another estimate from a different company Eric's tree service texted me and said they'd be in the area the following week, I called them and they said they had to revisit the estimate. They came back out continued to tell me her personal problems and that my neighbor would have to move his trailer. She then sent me a new quote of $7231!!! I called Arbortech and Justin came over on the day scheduled and was my most reasonable quote! He also said my neighbor wouldn't need to move his trailer. Justin and his crew arrived on time and did a phenomenal job!! They are true professionals! They cleaned up everything. They had had to remove a fence panel and when they put it back it was more secure than it had been when it had been originally installed. Justin's quote was $4700 less than Eric's! This experience with Arbortech was purely positive I highly recommend this company! Thank you Justin, Lindsey and the rest of the crew, you guys rock!!

The service I received from everyone at Arbortech for a tree removal was absolutely wonderful. Any questions and concerns I had were answered and reassured. Justin and Lindsey were both so helpful and the value I paid for this service was outstanding. Super reasonable, and I would recommend Arbortech to anyone in need of any tree service. Super grateful and happy. If I could figure out how to add pictures to my review, I would. They did an incredible job with not just the tree removal itself, but also with a brush pile I also had taken care of. Again, highly recommend Arbortech for anyone who is in need of any type of tree service. Couldn’t be more pleased!
