The Best Tree Services in Wilmington DE and Wilmington Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 


There is no state license required of tree contractors in Wilmington DE and Wilmington, so there is no state standard for competency and reliability (though a state license is required if they are to apply pesticides). Likewise, there is no legal requirement that tree care services in Wilmington DE first show proof of workers' comp insurance or liability insurance and both are critical to you. If an employee of theirs were injured on your property and the tree contractors don't have workers' comp, you will be held liable. Similarly if any accidental damage occurs to your property and the tree care company doesn't have liability insurance, you can be held responsible.

This makes it all the more significant that all contractors for tree care in Wilmington DE and Wilmington who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified worker's comp and liability insurance, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

 

 

Questions To Ask Tree Services in Wilmington DE 



When it comes to tree services in Wilmington DE, ask these questions about the abilities, experience, and credentials of tree contractors you're considering hiring:


• How long have they been providing tree services in Wilmington DE? (Different regions have their own unique soil conditions and weather that will effect choices in tree care methods. The length of experience doing tree care in your location specifically shows familiarity with these aspects.)

• How many tree services have they done similar to yours, in terms of size of job, residential versus commercial, tree pruning versus tree removal, etc.?

• Can the tree contractor give you names and numbers of customers who had similar tree services done who you can call as references? (All tree care companies in Wilmington DE bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their customer references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Do they use tree spikes or do they use lifts? (Spikes might damage living trees you wish to keep.)





• What is their safety record when it comes to tree removal or using cranes to lift trees close to homes?

• Can the tree care company vouch that all employees sent to your property are legal to work in the U.S.? (All tree services in Wilmington DE bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• How will they determine pricing?

• Will the tree companies provide a written estimate?

• Will the tree contractor show you proof of active workers' compensation and liability insurance? (All tree care companies in Wilmington DE bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)


• Does the tree contractor provide a written warranty for their labor or for new trees they install?

• Will permits be needed? If so, will the tree contractors be responsible for getting them or do they leave that up to you?


When you've chosen the best tree contractors in Wilmington DE for your specific needs, make sure they are registered with the state of Delaware if the work is residential and over $500, since that's required by law. (All tree care companies in Wilmington DE bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their state registration verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
