Whenever you hire a tree service company to remove trees from your property, there is always the risk of damage or injury. Trees are large and as such both homeowners and professional tree service companies cannot operate without the understanding that there is a possibility of damage or even injury to one or more of the workers in the process. It is important that you are well informed in case there is ever an accident on your property during a professional tree service.

Tree Service Company Insurance

Before you hire a tree service company, it is important to check that the company has both general liability insurance and workers compensation. Both help to provide you with financial protection in the case of an accident during the tree maintenance, tree removal or any other tree service process.

Worker’s compensation insurance will ensure that a worker is financially compensated in the event of accident or injury. Hiring a company with proper insurance helps to ensure that you are not financially liable.

General liability insurance offers compensation for any damages to your property. In other words, if a tree falls and destroys a side of the fence, then the insurance company will pay for the damages. However, keep in mind that general liability insurance does not cover for worker injuries. If an employee of the tree service company is injured on your property and the company only offered general liability, you will then be required to compensate for those injuries. This is why it is advised to always ensure that the tree service company offers both types of insurance.

What To Do If The Tree Service Company Does Not Have Workers Comp Insurance?

If a worker is injured when tending to a tree on your property and you find that the company does not have workers comp insurance, you will legally be bound to pay financial compensation to the worker. Because the company that employed the worker is uninsured, you are essentially considered the employer by the court making you responsible for any injuries while workers are performing the task you have contracted for.

The best way to protect yourself from potentially crippling financial responsibility is to ensure that the tree service company you hire is comprehensively insured. You can request to view their Certificate Of Insurance along with policy information to ensure that their insurance is both in place and in good standing.

Despite taking good care of the trees on your property, there may come a time when a tree will need to be removed. Removing a tree may also be a necessary step in maintaining the aesthetic appeal of a yard or to make space for a new landscaping feature, but it may also be a requirement if a tree is showing signs or symptoms that removal is necessary. While choosing to cut down a tree can be a difficult decision, it is often important in order to protect property, surrounding landscaping, and even people.

Nevada Tree Service specializes in professional Las Vegas tree removal including identifying the signs of a tree that should be cut down. In this post, we will look at three major indications that a tree will potentially need to be removed soon.


When microbes and fungi begin to digest wood, a tree starts decaying.  Trees with signs of decay are not only unpleasant in appearance, but they can also pose a real danger of falling over causing damage to a nearby house or building or even people walking by. Unfortunately, decay is not an issue that can easily be treated and resolved. Decay is a clear sign that a tree will need to be removed quickly. Signs of decay include loose bark, deep cracks or holes in the trunk, mushroom or fungal growth, deadwood, soft or crumbly wood, weak branches, presence of carpenter ants, and damage to the root system. If you see any of these symptoms or suspect potential decay, you should seriously begin to consider having the tree removed. If you are unsure if the negative signs you are seeing on a tree is decay or a treatable disease, contact our team at Nevada Tree Services today. We have the knowledge to identify decay and the experience to remove a tree before it can become a liability.

Invasive Roots

Trees with very large roots can become troublesome for any homeowner. Large invasive root systems can affect the health of a lawn or at the very least make it difficult to mow and maintain. Roots can also grow into cement structures such as driveways or patios and cause cracks compromising their structure. Invasive roots have even been the cause of serious sewer and plumbing problem. Tending to the potential repairs caused by invasive root systems can be expensive and is often only resolved by removing the tree. Nevada Tree Service is able to assess a tree’s root system and help you to determine if it would be best to remove the tree before damage can be done.


Trees that have been damaged or weakened are another clear sign for the need to remove a tree. Trees can become damaged due to severe weather or other incidents. Even root systems can weaken or damage trees. For instance, some trees will develop circle roots that will never be able to support the weight of the tree properly. A tree with extensive damage or inherent weaknesses poses a threat to the safety of your home as well as to those living in it. If you have discovered signs of potential weakness or clear signs of damage, contact Nevada Tree Service to have the tree professionally removed soon.
