Yes! This is becoming a critical question to not only ask but to verify. In Nevada some insurance companies consider it an act of “negligence” on the homeowners’ part if they hire someone who is not licensed or insured and will refuse to pay if there is a claim. We recommend that you get written paper work and call to verify that it is still current for the following insurance: Workers compensation and general liability. Workers compensation insurance is extremely expensive for the tree industries and many companies simply don’t carry it. Request proof of insurance and CALL to VERIFY that it is still current!
