Do I tip tree trimmers?

I have a couple guys trimming the trees at my house. Should I tip them if they do an especially good job? Is that usual?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

I always tip these guys in my area (Dallas TX). Of course the job must be dome well and the cleanup has to be immaculate. Most of the time the workers are hourly workers and they do not make quite as much on the jobsite as you would think. I also provide a cooler of water/soda each day that I have workers on my property. It seems that it is very appreciated and it has always worked to my advantage at the end of the day.

The overall cleanup is usually much better at my property than at others that I have seen. I think that treating these guys with the respect that they deserve when they are out in the heat/cold goes a long way.

There are no rules to contractor tipping but I can tell you that the workers supremely appreciate it.

Any recognition of a job well done is great to get.

Thank you for even considering it.

It is not expected, yet, always highly appreciated. This is especially true if the crew is surprizingly polite; show a high respect for your property; are working under difficult conditions - extreme heat, cold, x-long day; and such.

It is completely up to you.
