Training & Support
There is a common myth that businesses fail because of lack of capital. In reality, businesses fail because they don’t have an effective business plan and system for making money.
This is why so many independent startups fail where franchises succeed.
They burn through their cash during the trial and error period, which can easily last five years or more, trying to figure out how to perfect their business model. If they ever do.
At Monster Tree Service®, we offer the highest level of initial and ongoing training in the industry. We know that eliminating the trial and error period with a proven system for making money gives you the highest probability of success in the shortest amount of time.
The success of your business is our business. And it starts right here.
A Monster Tree Service® franchise includes two full weeks of initial training, with one week of classroom and hands-on training in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, followed by another full week of personal, onsite training at your location.
The two weeks don't have to run together, with the second week of training during your start-up phase.
You will learn Monster Tree Service® proprietary systems and processes for every part of the business; arborist education, proper tree care, how to recruit and hire the right help, manage day-to-day operations and market the business with our nationally recognized advertising programs.
Training continues throughout your term with ongoing education programs and regular onsite support by Certified Arborists with decades of experience.
Training sessions conducted by our professional staff, each an expert in their field who will also teach you:
- Safety and Equipment Usage
- Public and Employee Relations
- Budgeting and Business Planning
- Supplies and Purchasing
- Bookkeeping and Financial Controls
- Advertising and Sales Strategies
- Operations and Daily Management
- Computer and Internet
In addition, our Certified Arborists will show you how to provide Estimates in Hours, Not Days™ and operate our exclusive Plant Health Care (PHC) program to add as an additional profit center for your business.
Bottom line? We have a proven system for making money and can teach it to you. All you have to do is follow it.
Grand Opening Support
To make sure the launch of your new business goes smoothly, after initial training our Certified Arborist, Field Operations and Safety Manager will be with you for a week, onsite at your location. You’ll get personal, one-on-one assistance with hiring, sales, equipment, scheduling and more, followed by quarterly Field Support from then on.
Ongoing Training & Support
In addition to the initial training class, we provide monthly online training sessions including our exclusive “Making You Money” series of training modules, arborist continuing education, an annual conference, and onsite visits throughout the year.
You will have unlimited access to our extensive library of professionally-designed marketing material developed to give you a competitive edge including advertisements, signage, door hangers, videos, and nationally recognized and automated advertising programs that we help you manage.
We also create and maintain your personal website page, business locator and email addresses, and have authorized vendors that will help you automate SEO and Pay per Click (PPC) campaigns to drive traffic to your Monster website, and set up opt-in email campaigns.
As a Monster Tree Service® franchise owner, you’ll have the right to purchase our exclusive nationally recognized and branded marketing products as well as equipment, vehicles, and software, internet and email marketing services, Plant Health Care (PHC) material and more, all at discounted National Account prices.
The savings we obtain through these programs are passed directly to you, and will not only offset the low royalty fee, they will also give you a competitive edge in the marketplace.

If you need help or just have a question, the Monster Team is available whenever needed. You will have the direct email and phone numbers for all of our ISA Certified Arborists, trainers and Operations Team Members so you can get answers to any questions that arise.
