What to Expect From Your Tree Shrub Service

Clueless When It Comes to Maintaining Trees?

The following tips supplied by Dad and Son Landscaping, will provide you with the basics to find a reputable tree shrub service that will truly care about your trees, property, and your safety.


Erase the words “arborist” from your brain, as there is a big difference between an arborist and a certified arborist. Simply put, a certified arborist is someone that has studied to learn the right ways to safely prune and remove trees based on what they determine when they inspect your yard.

By taking the time to become certified, it shows you that they take their work seriously, in addition to taking pride in their work and are fully committed to progressing within the industry.

Proper equipment

Make sure that the person or service that you hire uses the right equipment for the job. Never hire anyone that uses spikes on their shoes when pruning your trees, as this does harm the tree.


Hiring a provider that adheres to all OSHA and industry safety standards is important. Make sure the crew will wear hard hats, ear protection, chainsaw chaps, and eye protection. This could be the difference between sustaining a serious injury or fatality on your property or having everyone leave unharmed.

Asking questions

The more a certified arborist gets involved in their industry’s events and tasks, the more you will be able to trust that they will treat your property and trees.

Checking certifications and insurance

A certified arborist must always carry their certification information with them. When someone stops by your house saying they are certified, make sure to ask to see their certificate. If they do not have this information, then steer clear of them.
