forestry business insurance
« on: July 23, 2008, 12:48:07 AM »
I recently started a side forestry business (eventually to become full-time) and I was wondering what kind/how much insurance do I need and how much will it cost??  The two major insurance companies in my town won't insure this type of work apparently.  The services I will provide will be timber sales, tsi, firewood, tree felling/trimming and eventually stump grinding.  Oh and also nuisance beaver trapping.  Thank you.

The cheapest quote I got was $4,000 a year.
