Look for Workman’s Compensation and Liability Insurance
One of the most important things you as a homeowner can do when choosing a tree service is to make sure the company has workman’s compensation and liability insurance.
You should always request a certificate of insurance directly from the service’s insurance company. Your name and address—as well as the company’s contact information and liability amount—will be on the certificate. Also, be sure to check the certificate to make sure the service carries workman’s compensation.
