It’s so important to get the best possible start to your new tree business. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics report that of the 653,000 businesses started in March 2015, only 330,000 survived to March 2019. That's a success rate of 50% in 5 years. Winners and losers exist in the tree service industry too, at the same rate.
According to IBISWorld’s report published in May 2019, there are currently 181,400 tree service businesses in operation across the USA. Couple this with the fact that the average lifespan of a small business in USA is around 10 years according to the US Census Bureau, Business Dynamics Statistics, 2014.
With total numbers of tree service businesses reasonably stable, the above statistics mean that around 18,000 brave young men and women will venture into tree service business ownership every year in USA.
