The first thing would be to make sure that our crews can access the location of the tree that needs service. Are there any locked gates or cars in the driveway that should be parked away from the worksite? Are there toys, lawn ornaments, lawn furniture, or flowerpots around that can move to a safe place? It is best if you move them into a safe place to ensure their safety. We try our best to protect your property, but it is best if you help us help you!
The next thing you should do to prepare is to make sure that if you have a pool— a temporary cover should be placed on it to prevent any debris from inadvertently invading your pool. Covering your pool will protect your pool liner if it has one and the filter from having to work overtime to keep your pool clean.
Another thing that you should do is make sure all underground pipes, wires, and utilities are indicated by yourself or Pennsylvania One Call (811) before we arrive at your property. PA One Call is a free service that will save you a lot of headaches if any underground lines are running near the worksite!
The last thing that you should do is make sure everyone in your house is aware of the date, time, and what work is going to occur. If you are on friendly terms with your neighbors, it may be a good idea to let them know as well.
