Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. The most common type of job we have is removing pine trees. Georgia has many pines.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Make sure the provider is experienced and insured.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. If I were a customer, I would want to know if the climber was experienced and insured.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. The customer does not need to know anything other than they want the tree removed. We come out and give free estimates and assess everything while doing so.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. We do quality work at the best price possible.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. All of our employees share a love for physical activity, nature and the great outdoors.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. How much would it cost to remove a pine, etc. We never answer this question without going out and taking a look at the project because so many variables are involved ie does the tree have to be climbed, do the limbs have to be roped down, etc.

Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?

A. The most challenging tree we have ever removed was a huge pine hinged on another small tree which is very dangerous..you never know how much the small tree can hold. We got it down safely and the customer was amazed.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Our profession can be very dangerous at times and it really takes someone that knows what they are doing to get the job done safely and efficiently.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I love the great outdoors and have always been an adrenaline junky. Climbling trees is not for everyone, but I love what I do.

Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.

A. We were very proud of removing a lightening struck oak that was between two houses with very little room to lower the huge limbs. We got it on the ground and cleaned up and the owner was very satisfied.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. We stay up to date on all of the newest equipment to get the job done safe.

Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

A. The best piece of equipment I have seen lately is a remote control stump grinder on 4 small wheels. It can get to the areas other stump grinders cannot. There's always something new coming out in this line of work.

Q. Describe your most recent project, what it involved, how much it cost, and how long it took.

A. Our most recent project was removing 9 large old oaks, grinding the stumps and pushing the ivy back so that the owner could have a back yard. The project took 3 days and cost $3100.

Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.

A. Our pricing system is very complicated. We never give a bid without first coming out and taking a look at the project. There are many variables that could possibly affect the price. For example, does the tree have to be climbed, do the limbs have to be roped down, does the customer have a septic system are just a few.

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. I would first of all suggest that they love heights and a love for the great outdoors is a must.

Q. Write your own question and answer it.

A. What's the most interesting job you have ever performed? We got a cat out of a 80' poplar tree at night. The closer we got to the cat, the higher the cat went up. It was all the way in the top of the tree by the time we got it down. It was a windy cold night and being in the top of a poplar under these conditions was not fun!

Q. Write your own question and answer it.

A. How much general liablity coverage do you carry? Our company has a million dollar policy.

Q. Write your own question and answer it.

A. How high do your climbers go. We go as high as it takes to get the job done safely. If we can't safely ascend the tree we put a bucket truck on it.
