Q: I need to hire a professional to care for my trees, what tips and hints should I be aware of?
A: Trees require an investment of time, money and expertise for the proper selection, planting, care, maintenance and removal. When problems occur or general maintenance is required, the help of a tree care professional may be warranted. Pruning or the removal of large trees is hazardous work, especially if it requires climbing or working from an elevated position. Such work should be left to trained and qualified tree care professionals. For specific information visit RCE fact sheet FS019, How to Hire a Tree Care Professional.
