When choosing a tree service it is important for the company to have insurance, but it is more important to make sure they have up-to-date insurance. Unfortunately, this industry attracts unethical people who practice insurance fraud. A company advertising that they are licensed and insured actually may not have either and the homeowner should ALWAYS ask for proof. This may not be enough due to fake or out dated certificates of insurance and the home owner should always check with the producer of the insurance. Tree professionals carry two types of insurance. The first is liability insurance which covers damage to structures and items on the said property. The second type is workman's compensation which covers injuries to the tree company's employees. High risk workman's comp. is very expensive but protecting the homeowner from incurring any medical expense is priority.
Sometimes companies will purchase "landscaping insurance" which is limited to working at ground level and does not cover working from a ladder or Bucket Truck. A homeowner should check with the insurance producer to confirm proper coverage because of working heights involved with tree trimming.
