A reputable company will not ask for $ before the job is done. (beware of companies that ask for $ before completion of your needs, we finish alot of jobs others have started)
A reputable company will answer your questions and make sure you understand their answers.
A reputable company will work with you to save your trees (If health of tree is worthy)
Above all a reputable company will stand behind their work and create a working friendship with you to create a beginning and lasting TRUST.
