Who do you call when a storm hits?

Along with the picturesque days of summer comes the occasional harsh storm. The care that you provide your trees in a storm’s aftermath is important. When a storm strikes this summer, do you know when to call an expert?

Tyler Woody, a certified arborist for FirstEnergy, offers some tips to ensure your summertime tree care is simple and stress-free, despite the damage of storms.

When cleaning up after a storm, you should call a professional anytime your feet must leave the ground.

Not only are heights dangerous, says Tyler, but they require special tools, equipment, and training that all professionals have. Without professional assistance, you would be exposing yourself to unnecessary risk, and added stress.

Protect your safety, and make your tree care easier by calling a tree service.

Before hiring, Tyler advises asking a tree care contractor these three questions:

  1. May I see a certificate of insurance?
    Workers’ compensation and liability insurance are crucial, because they protect the homeowner in case of an accident on their property.
  2. What are your credentials?
    Hire a tree service that employs an ISA-certified arborist or a TCIA-accredited business. Both account for the highest standards of tree care.
  3. Do you have a list of references?
    Any excellent quality tree service should share a list of satisfied customers.
