City of Cheyenne Forester Lisa Olson says there has been a problem recently in the area with people going door to door offering to do tree maintenance work without the proper licensing.

She says city codes require anyone performing such work to have a business license and proof of insurance before performing such work. She says if you allow an unlicensed person to do the work you could be opening yourself up to a significant liability in case there is any kind of accident, be it a personal injury or property damage.

Olson advises people to contact either her office at 637-6428 or the City Clerk's office at 638-4301 to verify licensing.. She says the other option is to ask to see their license  and proof of insurance yourself.
