The tree trimming business is an incredibly risky but financially rewarding occupation. While the high risk of personal injury or property damage is enough to act as a deterrent for many, the YouTube video, “How To Start A Tree Service Business-Tree Trimming Business,” offers tips for those who plan to establish a tree trimming service despite the risks.
A lot depends on the type of business model adopted. Opting to buy your own equipment will translate into higher startup costs.
Alternatively, there’s the option of buying a little equipment and hiring the rest. You could also opt to buy no equipment and rely solely on hired equipment. Your choice will determine just how much profit you make. Profits between models could differ by as much as 25%, although less time and effort is expended when all equipment is hired.
While it’s commonly espoused that a newbie professional needs three years with another tree trimming company for experience, it isn’t necessary since they can start off immediately once they have the equipment.
Lastly, the tree trimming business is very lucrative since a professional can earn hundreds of dollars per hour on each job.
