I’ve been in the tree industry for around 6 years and climbing for over three years. I have a lot of requests for side work and small projects here and there. I don’t want to fully commit to starting a tree company at the moment because I like the stability I have with my current employer but I want to supplement my income with small jobs on most weekends and eventually start on my own once I’m in a better spot to make that transition. I’ve done side work before but would like to do it more smart by having insurance and I would like advice on any good companies to contact for quotes and do I need a licensed business to be able to start insurance? Or can I go as self employed to start up? I will be working on my own for most projects and may have occasional help from my wife or brother.
