WE ARE A CUT ABOVE!
You live in Boise, Meridian, Eagle or Nampa Idaho and you simply can’t take it any longer. That pesky tree you’ve been debating to get removed has now dropped a significant primary limb in your yard that just barely missed your hot tub and or house, had you been standing below, it’s fair to say you might be getting treated at the ER for a major concussion (or worse) and still have a tree that needs to be removed. You pick up your phone and decide to call a respectable company that you feel is up for the task. With so many options on Google, yellowpages etc. how does one decide on who is the best for the job? Well, as your local tree surgeon let me help you navigate this question utilizing some trustee internet barometers.
Pictures: As you scan for tree removal companies on Google for Tree Services in the Boise area, take the time to look at the pictures each company provides on their individual Google business page to see if they have done work that is in comparison to what you are looking to have performed. This is a good place to start to do some checks and balances when determining if the company is capable of performing the work at your specific geographic location. An example would be if one company deems a job too dangerous to tackle without wearing tree gaffs, but the goal is to prune or reduce and not to remove you may want to see if there is somebody else available who can safely navigate the climb while keeping the trees health in interest as well. You may want to ask yourself, am I comfortable with heavy equipment on my turf and soil causing compaction and potentially sprinkler damage? If the answer is no, then you may want to keep scanning for more companies that are more climber based than bucket truck based. At Primetime Pruning we put a lot of emphasis on being transparent so we provide a diverse array of pictures for our potential customers, we felt by doing this it would help legitimize our business as not only one that can tackle technical removals, but also add value with small intricate pruning’s as well.
Pricing: To be honest, when it comes to pricing, the smaller but respectable companies might be a better option unless time and equipment is a major factor in the operation. Some times your paying to have equipment on your property and not for the actual tree work itself. The smaller guys, especially early on, do not have the luxury of hauling lots of heavy expensive equipment around so therefor we construct methods that maximize each piece of rope, pulley, carabiner. truck, chainsaw etc. to get the job done as efficiently as possible, this method also creates less of an imprint on said property. However, it is also worth noting that it is absolutely possible to minimize a companies footprint on your property if their is the necessary space for big equipment. My main point with this thread is to help customers understand that tree companies vary in their strength and weaknesses. What might be hard for one, may not be as hard for another so therefor you as a customer save money using the company that is stylistically compatible for your specific needs.
Reviews: Always check the reviews, it’s as simple as that. The first thing a customer should do before glancing at a website is read a companies reviews. That is where the gold is. A serious business owner works hard to develop a reputation online based on honesty, integrity and follow through. The reviews should embody that. I really appreciate you all stopping by, and as always, thanks for tuning in and will see ya around.
