Independent Tree Service
Terms of Service


              Thank you for requesting the services of Independent Tree Service, LLC.  We appreciate the opportunity to be of service. Because clear and timely communication is important for serving our clients well, we want to begin by stating certain mutual understandings about our services, what is needed from you, and our charges.

Estimates:  Our typical estimate requires nearly 4 hrs minimum from start to finish and almost always requires a site visit & follow up to obtain accurate details about your project and how to best serve you. This estimate will take all of the relevant facts about your project into consideration to ensure the utmost satisfaction no matter how large or small the tasks at hand. Because our time and the successful planning & execution of your project are of extremely high importance and value to us, we have implemented a nominal $20.00 minimum estimate fee for all new customers. The estimate fee is due within 10 business days of the first site inspection and will be deducted as a courtesy from the total estimate figures upon signing of contract.

Insurance:  Being at the forefront of our industry here in the Flathead Valley, we recognize not only the significance of doing a job well, but also all of the variables that are inclusive in a Full Package company such as ours. This is the very reason why we have spared no expense and have not cut ANY corners in the insurance and safety departments. Independent Tree Service is equipped with INDUSTRY SPECIFIC INSURANCE and workman’s compensation coverage on our employees which covers the precise risks associated with AMERICAS MOST HAZARDOUS INDUSTRY. Proper and Complete Insurance: A necessary component that the majority of smaller and thus cheaper competitors are simply lacking. “We have insurance” does not guarantee the existence of, or especially, the specific type of insurance required. Always request a certificate AND verify its specific coverage when requesting comparison quotes from other companies.

Fees:  Our fees vary & depend mainly on the equipment type, labor type, crew size, tasks at hand, materials, subcontractor fees, travel/hauling fees, hours worked on & off site to complete your project, etc.. Additional work requested or performed to complete your project which is not noted on the original estimate will be billed at our regular full hourly & service rates. Tree removal fees are itemized using our tree removal formula & are not typically billed hourly unless otherwise specifically noted. Please request prices and discuss budget requirements prior to work if needed. If you have a strict expense cap please allow us to design an estimate around your wants, needs and financial limitations. By allowing Independent Tree Service to perform work of any nature on your property, along with any work requests made without a signed estimate, are subject to these Terms of Service without compromise. Independent Tree Service will not perform additional work beyond the original estimate description unless directly requested to do so by property representative or owner. Estimate discounts do not carry over to additional work requested. We do not accept Credit/Debit cards or checks that draw from credit card accounts. Payment is due immediately upon completion of work unless other arrangements are made in writing. Payments must be received by due dates specified.

Retainer & Billing:  We ask that you send us a retainer in the amount of 50% of the total estimate to secure scheduling of your project. The balance of the charges, plus any additional fees incurred from additional work requested or required is due immediately upon completion. If payment is not made within 2 business days (unless other arrangements are documented in writing), interest will accrue on your outstanding balance at a rate of 12% compounded annually and accruing daily.  If any collection efforts are made to collect our fees and other charges, the court shall award: attorney and professional fees, costs for collecting your outstanding balance, interest, any and all damages that result due to non or late payment including fees and costs incurred for mediation and for any appeals.
