Lumberjacks Tree Service FAQs

When should a tree be removed?

Tree removal is recommended when a tree has been damaged beyond repair and remaining in your yard would be dangerous. Storms are one of the possible causes for this type of damage. Another reason to remove trees is if they are being damaged by or causing damage due to overcrowding. If a tree is dead or dying, or leaning in a dangerous direction, it should be removed. Finally, if you are renovating land or planning new construction, trees will need to be taken down and removed.

What do I need to know before hiring a tree service?

The most important thing is to confirm that the service has a license and credentials. If employees are not properly trained, they can cause major damage. A company with the proper credentials gives you peace of mind that the company knows what they are doing and will do it safely. The same is true for licensing. If a tree company does not have a license, this should be a red flag that their service may not be what you need.

Why do I need to prune my trees?

Pruning trees is an important part of keeping them healthy. It is also an important part of keeping you and your property safe. Dead branches can fall from trees at any time, endangering you, your family, or your house. Removing potentially dangerous limbs and keeping a tree well maintained protects you and the tree. However, pruning a tree yourself can be difficult and unsafe depending on the size of the tree and the location of the branches. A professional tree service can safely handle the job and prevent you from endangering yourself.

If I hire an unlicensed tree service and something goes wrong, will my homeowner’s insurance cover it?

Typically, homeowner’s insurance does not cover contract labor. Therefore, if you hire an unlicensed or uninsured tree company and someone gets hurt, then you could be responsible for medical bills and damages. Verifying that the company you hire has credentials, licensing, and insurance is imperative.

Is my tree at risk of falling down?

A tree’s size and shape can help indicate whether or not it may be at risk of falling down. Generally, tall, skinny trees are more likely to fall. However, there are other factors you should monitor in order to determine whether a tree may potentially fall.
