Best Practices

GoTreeQuotes is committed to arborists using the method of ‘BEST PRACTICE’. This technique or methodology is accepted as superior to any alternatives for commercial or professional procedures that are accepted and perceived as being the most correct for results that are superior to those achieved by other means.

Our expectation of the tree contractors we work with as such is to do everything in their power, using their knowledge and experience to uphold these values.

Commitment to safety

Safety is everything when it comes to tree removal. There is just so much that can go wrong. Recently urban tree lopping was ranked THE deadliest industry per capita above mining and construction.

We check the credentials of all tree companies we recommend to ensure customers and their properties are covered in case of an accident.
