General Liability and Workers’ Compensation

General Liability

Here is our General Liability Certificate for $2,000,000. Always check to make sure insurance certificates you are shown have a current date. Many Orlando and Daytona tree services are known to say they have coverage in order to land a job, but end up having lapsed or nonexistent coverage. This certificate assures you to be free of liability in the event of damage to your property. Given the sheer weight of large logs and the unpredictability of dead wood, there are times when preventing any and all damage is impossible. However, the best tree services will minimize such damage and will quickly arrange for any necessary repairs. A company’s true colors come out when something goes wrong on a job.

Even more important and rare is Workers’ Compensation coverage, the single most important factor in choosing a tree service (see below).

Workers’ Compensation

Did you know you could be held liable for an injury or death on your property when hiring a tree service in Orlando which lacks Workers’ Compensation coverage? While many of our tree service competitors in Orlando and Seminole County may carry liability insurance, few have Workers’ Compensation. This coverage is critical in an industry as dangerous as ours, and it is mandated by Florida law. Sadly, most local tree services skirt the law to save money, leaving their workers and their customers exposed to liability. If they don’t show it to you, they likely don’t have it.

Alarmingly, when the vast majority of Orlando area tree services cut this corner, they expose you to the liability of million dollar lawsuits. Remember, all insurance is not created equal! Insist on being provided with proof of current Workers Compensation rather than settling for less important, less expensive coverage. Only Workers Compensation shields you from paying for exorbitantly expensive injuries. Verify current coverage by calling the Florida Department of Financial Services at 1-800-342-2762 or at

      Evan, I wanted to follow-up with our short conversation this morning. Bruce and I wanted to thank you and ALL your crew for a job well done.
