On any typical day there are many potential hazards that could go wrong and problems that could arise. You're dealing with heavy materials, dangerous equipment and sometimes less than perfect employees and customers.
We could list all 99 problems that you have but let's stay positive and list some solutions to some of the 99 problems you face every day.
If you're the owner of an tree service company or working as a team leader of a tree crew then you may sometimes feel that position as a leader takes up too much of your time, never leaving you enough hours in the day to address your own work. It might seem you are always helping your team solve problems and address issues rather than fulfilling your own duties and responsibilities. As the team leader of your tree care team, you have to take on the responsibility of helping your crew in every possible way in every unique situation, as only you are positioned to help the team like no one else can. Here are some tips to motivate your tree crew to solve problems for themselves.
The ongoing long term success and profit of any tree care business relies on finding and converting new customers. That’s why lead generation or marketing is necessary to your tree service business. Because without one or the other (or both), you won’t get in front of new customers. So, when you do get in front of a potential customer, it’s important to maximize that lead/opportunity and not waste it.
So you’ve been trying to build and grow your professional tree removal business for years, but every season there’s a new guy who buys a chainsaw and a pickup truck and starts under-bidding you on jobs, stealing your potential customers. It’s a frustration we hear often from established and professional tree removal companies - because any body can call themselves a tree company, it’s getting harder and harder to compete.
Though there are many different services and niches in the tree care profession, in the mind of the consumer, most tree removal companies and services are the same. That’s a problem for you if you own a tree service business because anybody who buys a chainsaw and a pickup truck can call themselves a tree service company and underbid you on every job.
