In the city of Brooksville FL there is no license required to remove trees, although I believe one should be required. A license would help protect the customer. A customer should be confident that their tree man knows what he’s doing. Due to strict licensing customers can have confidence in their tree company. Any person with a chainsaw and truck can remove trees in the city of Brooksville. There is no way any Tom, Dick or Harry should be removing your trees. Just because a person buys a $40.00 sign and slips it on his truck does not mean he knows a thing about tree removal.
