Recommendations for using a contractor:

  1. Know your property lines.

  2. If you have a written scope of work (from a cost-share program or forester), share that with each contractor you contact.

  3. Meet with several contractors prior to making a selection. Questions to ask:

  • Cost?

  • What type of equipment do you use?

  • What can I expect my property to look like when you are finished?

  • When will you begin work and when do you anticipate finishing?

  • Are there things I can do myself to keep the cost down?

  • How will you dispose of excess material (what will happen to the chips if you chip the wood)?

  • Are you insured? Bonded?

  • Do you have names of previous clients we can call or work sites we can visit?

  • When is your payment due?

  • Do you use written contracts?


PLEASE NOTE:  The CWSC makes no recommendation or endorsement of the contractors listed,
