I review tree permits for a local city. I have had 2 residents come to my office in the last week. They both were fined by Code Enforcement for hat-racking trees. Both had hired Economic Tree Service(ETS) to 'trim' their trees. Economic assured them that they did not need a tree trimming permit. This was not true. A tree trimming permit is required when you trim more than 25% of the tree canopy. One resident was fined $1500, the other $6000! Do not use them! Contact the County Agricultural Extension to get a list of Certified Tree Professionals.
