DigLynden Tree Service started the year out in Bellingham like every other winter. The first two weeks of January were slow. We got a lead that turned into a seven week job and have not looked back.
Probably the biggest references for tree service in Bellingham WA we have done to date was at Wildwood Resort, at the end of South Lake Whatcom. They needed two hundred trees skirted, that means raising the bottom limbs up a few feet, dead-wooded, taking all the dead limbs out of the tree and selective limbing, thinning out the trees in order to let more light in and allow the wind to blow through without breaking the tree.
Very hard conditions to do tree service work. In the high 30’s to low 40’s, raining most days, and slippery. Wildwood Resort was the kick off to what has been our best year in the tree service business in Bellingham and Whatcom County. We worked on two hundred cedars, knocked down a few, and chipped tons. It was a great way to get through what traditionally can be a slow time of year. Thank you Rick Faber, from Faber Construction, for the referral.
From there it is one job after another. ReMax Realtors of Bellingham gave us a great job reducing and shaping the trees on the King St side of their property. We utilized our new 60′ boom truck on this one. Thanks to Rob Merhaut, a diligent Realtor by the way and very successful at the practice of real estate, we gave an estimate and it was approved. From that job has come many more tree service jobs from ReMax Realtors. Realtors are a great source of leads for DigLynden Tree Service these days. We are doing lots of work as specialist for bank repo’s. A Realtor has a lot on the line when they refer a tree service company, and we live up to the expectations of professional service.
One aspect of the tree service industry in Bellingham WA and Whatcom County is companies working without insurance and or not having their employees on L and I. We recently did work and our customer said after an exhaustive study on who to call, she finally found us on L and I’s website of credible tree service companies.
One of our new customers is the Bellingham School District. The process is full of forms to be filled out but once you get those all squared away it’s no problem. We removed an 80′ dead cedar for them at Carl Cozier Elementary School.
One of our favorite references and customers that we do business for each year is the Northwest Washington Fair. We maintain their more difficult trees. This year we dead wooded 10 Oaks and raised the skirts on them, in order to allow trucks to drive under with-out touching. It is amazing how much dead wood we remove from this type of tree. The extent of the work at the fair allows us to have a spot outside all week during the fair. Great time for the kids to enjoy the week and say hi to a lot of customers that stop by to say hi.
Like the heading of the article says, “a reference says it all”. To be competitive as a tree service company in Bellingham WA and Whatcom County, a company must provide consistent quality work, and keep it’s pricing as aggressive as possible. We have accomplished this by hiring concerned professionals and keeping out debt very low.
We appreciate the tree service business in Bellingham WA and look forward to servicing all our un-met friends. Give us a call at 360-318-9795 and we’ll get it on the ground for you.
Thank you for the call.
