Yes, we carry a two million dollar insurance policy to cover our operations. We also carry a worker's compensation policy to make sure that our staff is protected.
Why is it important to prune trees?

Pruning trees in an urban environment is crucial to the future health of the tree. Proper pruning can greatly increase the longevity of the tree, reduce the amount of deadwood that the tree produces, provide necessary clearances from utilities & structures, and provide the opportunity for the arborist to perform a thorough inspection of the tree. It is extremely important that proper pruning practices are used to avoid causing severe damage to the tree.

Do you offer free quotes?

Yes, we do offer free quotes. An appointment can be scheduled for a certified arborist to take a look at your project. If preferred, a certified arborist can look at the project without an appointment and provide a quote over email. 

Do I need to be home when a quote is given?

We generally try to set up an appointment to provide a free quote. It allows us to go over detailed perimeters of the scope of work & address concerns. If unable to set an appointment, a certified arborist can look at the project & provide a free quote via email.

What is a certified arborist?

A certified arborist is somebody that has gone through documented training & passed an exam that demonstrates proof of knowledge. It is highly recommended that all tree projects have a certified arborist involved to avoid causing irreparable damage to your trees.

What does a tree project cost?

The cost of a tree project can vary greatly. Many factors are considered while putting a monetary value on a project such as: targets that can be damaged, hazards that will need to be mitigated & the amount of time that the work will take to be completed. A core value of Duffey Tree Care is to provide you with an exceptional service while also offering competitive pricing.
