Tree Trimming

Residents hiring tree trimmers, please be aware of the following:

Local tree trimmers are aware of the requirement of them to haul felled trees and limbs away from the worksite.

It is a good idea to choose local in general as many irreputable businesses use storm events as an opportunity to take advantage of those needing repair services.

Please make sure that tree removal is a part of your quote. LCG’s Storm debris contract does not cover the removal of healthy trees unrelated to a storm event from a property.
