Price seems too good to be true? The cost of good
tree care is not cheap; we have a heavy investment in equipment, labor, safety training and insurance; a bid for a job has
to reflect many of those costs. Be cautions of companies
soliciting business “door-to-door”, requires payment in advance, wants to be paid cash, and those who don’t
provide a detailed written estimate. Also be very cautious of those that cannot provide proof of a Virginia Contractor License,
Insurance Certificate or ISA certification. Owning
a truck and a chainsaw does not automatically qualify someone as a tree care professional or arborist.
A Certified Arborist is a person that specialize in the management and care of individual trees, and their education
and/or training is in the field of tree care. November 2006 Adam S. Medek, President of Medek Tree Service, Inc. demonstrated his professional competency by successfully
completing the CERTIFIED ARBORIST examination administered through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and the
local Chapter of the ISA.

Medek Tree Service, Inc. is a Class
A Licensed Contractor in the state of Virginia. Not all states require contractors to be licensed; Virginia
does require licensing. A contractor may also answer this question by telling you he/she has a business license. However,
a business license is a tax requirement only and is not directly relevant to the contractor's competence. Licensed Virginia Contractors are regulated by the Department of Professional and Occupational RegulationThe Board issues three types of contractor's licenses or certificates -- Class A, B, or
C. Usually the type of license you get will be based on the value of contracts your business will work on.

property. We carry the proper insurance for tree work; General Liability, Workers Compensation,
Automobile Liability, and Umbrella Coverage. We will be glad
to provide you with certificates of insurance, and proof of licensing.
