Hiring a Tree Service

We want you to know what to look for in a certified arborist and tree service company. Whether you choose us for your tree service needs, or one of our competitors, there are certain things that you must look for when shopping for a tree service. The high cost of a low estimate isn’t always immediately apparent, but with over 20 years in the business, Legacy Tree Trimming knows what you need to look for when hiring a tree care specialist. Have more than one tree care company look at your job and give estimates, and don’t be afraid to ask for proof of insurance, certification, and references. Experience, education and a good reputation are signs of a good arborist.tree services

You may find flyers for tree services on your front door or in your mailbox, offering “discount” tree trimming and removal services. Most reputable tree service companies have more than enough work without soliciting door to door for business. This type of advertising can be especially common after storms, when non-professionals see a chance to earn some quick money. Storm damage can be especially dangerous to you and your home and an uninsured non-professional can cause further damage or put you in great risk of liability if they are injured while working on your property.

Be cautious of a tree service that specializes in “tree removal.” This invariably means they are not certified arborists. A true “specialist” will never remove a tree unless all other options have been exhausted. A reputable tree service respects the trees they care for, and will never use climbing spikes to climb a tree unless it is dead and marked for removal.


If you had a pain in your arm, or a rash on your leg, you wouldn’t expect your doctor to amputate, so why allow that to be done to your trees? Many tree trimming companies reach for the saw as a first option, but we know for a fact that removal is rarely the first line of treatment. With over twenty years experience in the diagnosis and treatment of pests and pathogens that affect trees, Senior Legacy Tree Trimming Arborist Al Malnik can provide you with a clear course of action to best treat your tree’s affliction with minimum impact to it.

The first step is to examine the tree’s health in its entirety, including a comprehensive assessment to check to properly identify the tree and any abnormalities in its overall appearance. Next, a comprehensive examination of your landscape and the roots will determine if there is a leaf born or root born stressor or pathogen affecting your tree for fungi, viruses, bacteria, and an overall stress assessment. If common infectious diseases and stressors can be ruled out, we then examine other factors that can affect your tree’s health.

Next, a close examination of the trunk and branches for marring or wounds will determine if pathogens or wood-rotting organisms have entered from damaged areas of your tree’s bark. Finally, we take note of the position of all leaf damage. Did you know non-infectious diseases account for the large majority of all plant problems in some areas? Nutrient deficiencies, temperature extremes, vandalism, insecticides, pollutants, and drought can cause these. Since these disorders often produce symptoms similar to those caused by infectious diseases, it is essential to distinguish between the two in order to give proper treatment. Senior Legacy Tree Trimming Arborist Al Malnik and his crew have the experience and expertise to handle all aspects of your trees health, from sapling care to diseased tree removal.
