Payment Terms

  • Payment Forms: I accept payment via cash, check, or online with a debit card. Please write checks to “Just Small Trees, LLC”. If you pay online, I never see or receive your debit card information. I pay 3% to process debit cards, the same as credit cards, so I prefer to receive payment by check.
    I don’t use credit cards myself and I ask that you do not use them at my business. For more information, see Dave Ramsey’s policy on debit and credit cards.
  • Payment Due: Full payment is due upon completion of work. For large jobs or ones that take place over a long period of time, I may ask for a percentage payment based on work completed. For example, a 50% payment after 50% completion. In these cases, I will make terms clear before starting any work.
  • Receipts: Whether you pay by cash, check, or online, I’ll send an electronic receipt. If you don’t have email, I’ll mail a receipt or write one in person.


  • Returned Check: A $25.00 fee is charged for all checks returned for insufficient funds.
  • Site Safety: A $50.00 fee is charged if, after work setup begins, the authorizing party is unable to secure people or pets from entering the work zone. I can’t work with people or pets in the work zone.
  • Cancellation: A $25.00 fee is charged for services canceled while in route to the job-site. Please contact me at least 24 hours in advance to cancel without a fee.
