Start by sending us an email at email@example.com so we can get to know you and agree on a topic. Tell us a bit about your tree service background and include a link to your website for review.
You can include some topic suggestions if you want depending on your expertise, but we might request something different from you.
Once we agree on a topic, we’ll establish the best time to publish it and a deadline for you to meet. This depends on the topic seasonality as well as our content calendar.
We’ll also ask you to sign our Guest Blogging Agreement. You can send it back to us anytime during or after the drafting process, just know that we will not schedule your post for publishing until we have your signature.
Please prepare your draft in a Google Doc and email a link to us when it’s ready. Link sharing should be “on” for anyone who receives it; please grant edit access.
Our editors will do the rest from there.
Before you get started:
We only accept original content. It must be written by you and must not be published elsewhere before. We also ask that you do not republish your guest post to your own blog, as this has a negative SEO impact for you as well as us.
- If you’d like to submit a piece similar to one you already wrote, it should be rewritten and offer a fresh new angle.
- We’re interested in your unique perspective, including original photos and other visuals. If your article is best supported by data, quotes, or visuals from another source, you must cite it and include a link.
- You are welcome – and encouraged! – to share a link to your guest post on social media after we publish it.
- Content should be original and not be plagiarized or spun content. Any content that is suspected to be plagiarized or spun will be rejected.
We publish content that’s easy to understand. Many of our readers are new homeowners and beginner gardeners. Beginner guides to topics are definitely welcome!
Help us promote tree health, safety, and care; not products. We do not accept posts that are reviews or promote products with affiliate links. Contributor content with any of these will be rejected.
Please send us a short bio paragraph to include at the end of your post so readers can learn more about you. This may include a link to your website homepage, LinkedIn profile, or business page on social media. You should also send us a headshot.
Do not send us stock images. If you don’t have your own photos to include, we’ll source these on our end.
You may include 1 link in your article to a relevant page on your website, provided this is something we talked about and agreed on. (This is in addition to a homepage link in your bio.)
Our editors will proof your post for typos and make minor adjustments to reflect our writing style. This includes our specific approach to writing species names, dates, measurements, and industry terms.
- They will also upload your post to the blog and make sure it follows SEO best practices which apply to the post title, URL, and other elements.
- Please note that we will not give them rough drafts for feedback or any content that is too poorly written to publish.
For the full run-down on word count, formatting, and submitting your post, see our Guest Submission Guidelines.
Tree Services US reserves the right to:
- Edit and adapt your contributed content as we see fit, and update it in the future for accuracy and best practices;

- Reject your contributed post or any photos/images submitted along with it if they do not meet our quality standards or company values.
