Hey Krazy how much did your insurance go up when you go into tree work. I'm looking at studying for my aroborist license over the winter and getting into tree work next year. Was wondering if the cost of insurance was astronomical? The new postcards are looking good!

Mine wasn't to bad I'm paying around $1200 or so for a $1 million policy right now, are you becoming a certified with I.S.A or local Arborists association? My plan is to become certified with the Kansas Chapter and once i graduate become I.S.A certified.

I just started looking into the certification. I looked at the i.s.a certification but I still need for find out what is required in my state. I talked to a friend who I went to college with and he said he took the arborist exam when he graduated last year and said it was pretty easy. A lot of the stuff I have learned already in regards to trimming and pruning while in school.

im in the same boat you are in. Im taking my arborist exam in the spring debating on the pestiside/herbicide exam I think tree work is a great thing to have on your list and can make some good $$$$$

What about the postal logo on the postcard and the other stamp or whatever they need?

Postcard looks real nice though!
