Tree Contractor Information

A person cuts a tree with a chainsaw.

Any person or company performing tree work for hire within City of Lakewood limits is required to possess a Tree Contractor’s license. Licensing is administered through the Parks Division. 

Tips for Hiring a Tree Contractor

  1. Check with the Parks Division about the license status of the person or company.
  2. Get more than one estimate.
  3. Ask for a written proposal that lists all the work to be performed including clean-up and hauling away of the tree debris.
  4. Beware of “door knockers” people who usually go door to door after storms as a way to earn quick money. They are typically non-professionals and not licensed. Most reputable tree companies have all the work they need without going door-to-door. Anyone can list themselves in a phone book or print flyers.
  5. Ask to see their proof of insurance coverage.
  6. Never be rushed by bargain prices or pay for tree work in advance. Common complaints received involve people who pre-pay for tree work and either the work is partially completed or never started. People who take money in advance rarely return phone calls.
