Choosing the Right Contractor for Tree Removal in Covington, KY
If you need tree removal in Covington, KY because there’s a tree on your property that is unsafe or in the way… you’ll need to make sure you contact the right contractor. While we do specialize in tree removal (and are experienced at taking down trees in wide open spaces just as well as tight, close quarters) we realize that there are an overwhelming number of tree removal contractors in the area.
We’ve put together a few tips on what we think you should take into consideration when hiring any contractor for tree services in Covington, KY – whether it’s us or someone else.
Why Hire a Tree Service Company in Covington, KY?
You may think that it’s a good idea to grab your chainsaw and a buddy or two to bring that tree down – but there are a lot of potential safety hazards that come with doing so. First, someone could get hurt, which should be obvious enough. While you may have brought a tree down in the forest we want to assure you that bringing a tree down in a residential area is drastically different.
Second, you could damage your property. If the tree comes down the wrong way it could end up falling on your home or a vehicle. Your homeowner’s insurance policy probably won’t cover this type of damage (but we could be wrong, every policy is different!)
Finally, if the tree comes down across power lines you could have a real problem on your hands. You could end up responsible for the cost of repairing the damage to the lines and the high voltage could ultimately be responsible for someone’s death. We always recommend you hire a professional for tree removal in Covington, KY to keep everyone and your property safe.
Verify Insurance for Tree Removal in Covington, KY
It’s critical that you verify the contractor’s credentials before hiring them for tree removal in Covington, KY – but you also want to verify their insurance. Make sure they have the correct liability and worker’s comp insurances to protect your property and their contractors. While it isn’t necessary, you do have the right to actually call the contractor’s insurance agency to verify their insurance before awarding them the job. If you do take this step the contractor shouldn’t hesitate to provide the information.
Other Tree Services in Covington, KY
We also offer a wide variety of other tree services in Covington, KY including tree trimming/pruning and stump grinding. In many instances when a tree is removed the stump is left behind. In order to remove the stump a special machine is brought in that resembles a giant chainsaw. This blade has massive teeth that turn the stump into chips. This process is necessary because the roots of the tree make it difficult (and sometimes impossible) to remove it.
Tree trimming may be necessary to prevent branches and limbs from coming down in unsafe places on your property, or to protect your home. Tree pruning is needed to help ensure a tree grows the way you want, and in some cases, to help improve the health of your tree.
