The Best Tree Services in Lake County FL Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 


The state of Florida doesn't require any state license of tree contractors in Lake County FL so there's no state standard for competency and reliability among tree services (though a state license is required if they are to apply pesticides).  Similarly, the state doesn't require that tree care services in Lake County FL first show the state 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.

So there's no guarantee that any particular tree care company in Lake County FL is even competent, is doing business honestly, delivering value, or satisfying their customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all contractors for tree care in Lake County FL 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.




Some Tree Services in Lake County FL Are More Competent Than Others

In Florida, anyone can call themselves a tree care company or put themselves out there for tree pruning and tree trimming services in Lake County. Unfortunately, tree trimming done by the many inexperienced tree services is done without a sufficient knowledge as an arborist and hurts or even kills your trees by being done inproperly so as to stress the tree into sickness, or creating an opening to infection and tree pests.   The best tree trimming services understand the biology and lifecycle of your trees so they know what not to prune, and how to trim trees or remove branches in a way that leaves your tree healthy.

Other tree care companies might have sufficient knowledge but lack the equipment, experienced staff, and organizational capability to properly and cost effectively perform commercial tree services for properties such as large apartment complexes, office complexes and office buildings, retail complexes and malls, as well as be able to perform for municipal tree services (for city governments).  Qualified commercial tree care services will be able to demonstrate previous experience for specific clients of those exact types before undertaking your commercial tree care services in Lake County FL.






Tree services in Lake County FL perform tree services such as tree pruning, tree removal, stump removal or stump grinding, and tree or limb guying.  

After heavy rains or high winds, your trees can suffer. Limbs litter the yard and can get tangled in power lines. Aside from the unattractive appearance and cleanup associated with the aftermath of a storm, there may also be serious dangers involved. Large tree limbs need to be removed from your roof and anything near power lines must be carefully extracted by a professional tree company.

If you've found yourself in this situation, it's imperative that you contact a local tree service contractor or arborist. With special tree service equipment and thoroughly trained employees, the best tree companies can safely remove or trim precariously positioned limbs so you don't have to climb a ladder and risk breaking your neck.

Even without a storm, trees often need trimming or treatment for disease. Again, a professional tree service or certified arborists will help.

Tree Service Companies in Lake County FL Perform Numerous Services

There are many tree-related problems that only professional tree services can remedy. It's usually not advisable to attempt to resolve these issues yourself, particularly with dangerously dangling limbs or anything near power lines. Therefore, services for tree removal or tree trimming are essential.

Before starting any procedures (including emergencies), most tree services assess the situation in its entirety with aerial inspection, hazard evaluation, structural analysis and consultation. Once the situation has been fully inspected, tree surgeons or tree arborists may decide to perform tree shaping, tree trimming, tree pruning, topping, tree transplantation, tree bracing, root zone fertilization, height reductions, crown reductions, tree repair, or hopefully, tree preservation.

The tree services in Lake County FL can also perform the appropriate forms of vegetation management at your request, such as lot clearing, disease management, stump removal, dead wood removal, ivy removal, blackberry removal, or poison oak removal. Tree services in Lake County approach the problem in different manners, including cabling, portable milling, crane service, or climbing spikes, the latter being potentially hazardous to a living tree. You should inquire about these techniques before hiring tree services. If the risk associated with the procedure is minimal, some tree services will even rent some of their equipment for your personal use, such as stump grinders and heavy equipment.

Tree services are also trained to attend to various potentially problematic situations, such as fire road maintenance, regular clearance for fire safety, construction damage prevention, sudden oak death, spraying, weed control, insect and disease suppression, and other preventive maintenance. Tree services throughout Lake County will also repair storm damage with removal, limbing, wind damage repair and view restoration. If you're concerned about preserving clippings, some tree services re-use or sell removed vegetation in the form of wood chipping, brush chipping, or firewood. Some tree services in Lake County have a certified tree arborist on staff for reports or consultation, and adhere to tree service industry standards.

Tree Services in Lake County FL are Properly Stocked with the Best Tree Service Equipment

Tree contractors in Lake County are equipped with specialized tools to efficiently remove dangerous branches or restore the appearance of overgrowth. They employ pole tree pruners, chainsaws, aerial lifts, chippers, or stump grinders for all of your tree removal needs.

Questions To Ask Tree Services in Lake County FL 



When it comes to tree services in Lake County FL, 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 Lake County FL? (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 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 Lake County FL 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 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 Lake County FL for your specific needs, make sure they are properly licensed by your county or city if such is required, since there is no state license required for tree care in Lake County FL. (All tree care companies in Lake County FL bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their city or county license (if required by law), verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
