Removing or pruning a large landscaped tree is not an easy task, which is why most homeowners use a professional arboriculture service for such work. You must have a detailed contract that defines the tasks to be performed, the terms of payment and all liability issues, including insurance coverage. The customer guarantees that all trees, plant materials and land on which the work is to be carried out belong to him or that the authorization for the work has been obtained by the owner. Acme Tree Service, Inc. shall be released from any claim for compensation resulting from the customer`s inability to obtain such authorization. All invoices are payable net after receipt of the invoice. A 1.5% service fee is levied on accounts that have not been fully paid 30 days after the invoice date. The first page of this simple contract describes the work to be done and may contain options if the arboreal service offers other approaches to the work they have inherited. It also contains your authorization signature, i.e.
Your agreement for the Tree Department to perform the work as described above. Below is an example of a larger removal contract by tree services. This standard contract concerns the work offered on a tree that presents a danger and that the customer therefore wishes to remove (or at least prune more significantly). If the work is less dramatic and the tree does not present any danger – as for example for simple pruning – a typical contract is usually less detailed. Most professional tree service companies have the contract templates that they use to draft offers and secure the work permit.
