Hire a Licensed Contractor for your tree work.

For your safety and peace of mind CAÑADA TREE CARE is a fully insured and licensed company. It is a good idea when hiring a licensed contractor to always request certificates of insurance. You also need to know who is in charge and who is the owner of the company. Some tree companies have a Contractor's License but claim they have no employees so as not to pay into the Workmen's Compensation Fund. You can go to the California Contractors State License Board web site to check the current status of a company or you can use the number listed below to verify if their license is current and whether they have Workmen's Compensation Insurance.

To check a Contractor's License number call: 1-800-321-2752.

What is an arborist?

The International Society of Arborculture tests prospective arborists with a battery of tests designed to determine their knowledge of trees. The test is divided into ten sections, ranging from the biology of trees, proper pruning, disease and infestation, to O.S.H.A regulations and safety procedures. This all came about as a way for arborists to separate themselves from the old school tree trimmers who tend to do more damage than good in trimming trees. I currently do not do arborist reports but i do work with and refer these arborists.
