Possible tree service scams reported
A potential tree removal scam has been reported in the First Colony area of James City County. All County residents should remain vigilant and do research on any company going door-to-door claiming to offer tree clean up services. In a time of disaster, a fast recovery is desirable, but not taking the time to hire a reputable tree service may create greater problems in the future. Always ask or check for the following: certification, professional affiliation, advertisements, references and estimates.
