A landscaping contractor constructs, maintains, repairs, installs or subcontracts the development of landscaping systems and facilities for public and private gardens and other areas that are designed to aesthetically, architecturally, horticulturally, or functionally enhance the terrain in or around a structure or plot of land. Additionally, a landscape contractor prepares and qualifies parcels and areas of land for the installation of any architectural, horticultural and decorative treatment.
Tree trimmers also face a great risk of injury from tree limbs or falling logs. It is important to assess your specific insurance risks and obtain the appropriate coverage to protect your business investment.

Here are some of the coverage options you may need as a tree service contractor:
This policy protects you if your business must temporarily cease operations and will cover ongoing operating costs and employee pay.

Property Damage: Accidentally dropping your tool belt and damaging your customer’s custom flooring

Commercial property insurance provides protection for the property stored in your office owned by your business. If your business owns your office, it can also provide protection for the building itself.
You have computers and inventory in your office. A fire breaks out that destroys the property stored in your office.
Protect your business if you or one of your employees have caused injury or harm to another person while driving a commercial vehicle or while driving for business purposes. It also protects your company vehicles against damage or theft.

Your company truck is stolen from the parking lot in front of your company.
This policy protects the equipment and cargo that you transport from one job site to another. For example, if you use a computer in the field, your inland marine insurance would generally provide protection. These policies vary by insurer, so it’s a good idea to discuss the details with your agent.
This coverage can provide protection if the products you sell cause damage or injury. This includes trimming tools, sprayers, chemicals, and fertilizers.
If you provide landscaping and tree care advice, professional liability or “errors and omissions” coverage can provide protection against liability claims for negligence, poor advice or recommended services that cause the loss of a customer.
It provides funds for medical expenses and lost wages if one of its employees is injured or dies while working. In almost all states, workers’ compensation insurance is required for businesses that have employees.
One of your employees receives an electric shock and injures his hands. Workers’ compensation insurance provides coverage for an employee’s medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, and a portion of his lost income while he is unable to work.
