A consultation and an estimate are different things, but both involve a meeting with an arborist. An estimate is a free brief meeting to give you a price estimation of how much a certain job will cost. However, a consultation is a more serious and lengthy conversation between an arborist and homeowner.
A consultation with an expert arborist should happen before you make any major modifications to your property. A consultation can also give you piece of mind, or help you make a decision you weren’t sure about. Overall, our interest is in the trees first.
Are you uncertain if a tree is safe? Does this tree pose a risk to my property? What’s the value of this tree? Are you looking for a second opinion? When it comes to helping make the best decisions for your trees, a consultation is what you’re after.
