Rusk Tree Service

For experience, honesty and a laid back personality around INDY call 812-259-1771

I was born and raised in a rural Amish community in southwestern Indiana (Daviess County). I have been actively involved in the tree business since I managed (16) Davey Tree crews that trimmed the power lines for Public Service Indiana (now Duke) back in 1993. In 1995 my brother and I purchased a tree service in Lawrenceville, Illinois (Jerry Wells tree service). In 2001 I moved to California, got my General "B" contractor license and began remodeling homes and businesses. I worked in California for 18 years. Now I am back in the Indianapolis area (Greenwood). I will be doing tree trimming, tree removal and stump grinding. I can handle it all. Just give me a call or text 812-259-1771 . Thanks, Ted

I had the electrical work for an outside patio cover lowered by TC Rusk to accommodate covering the patio. The original electrical work was done meticulously and TC matched/exceeded the relocation work perfectly!! I will surely use him again should the need arise.

We needed a ceiling fan installed, and Ted was very responsive in providing a competitive estimate. The quality of his work was as good as I have seen. Overall, very pleased.

Review by in San Pedro, CA
Project: Hire a Handyman
We had Ted do 2 tasks for us. He added a backsplash to a janitor's closet; he chose & purchased the material and installed it. Excellent work. The other task was to stabilize the bottom half of a heavy solid dutch door in a commercial kitchen. The contractor of the new construction advised me to put in a piano hinge on the bottom half of the door because it was scraping the opposite jamb. Ted decided not to install the piano hinge, but did not consult with me first. He left the door jamb unfinished and left. I later called and he said hewould come back out and charge me, or I could have our maintenance man to the patch. I was here in the office all morning, and would have appreciated a call to make this decision while he was still here on the premises.
Response by Rusk Tree Service: Commercial door with commercial hinges never need a "piano hinge". I secured the jamb with longer screws and asked the handyman there if he could touch up the spots and he said yes. I suppose he forgot to touch up so I had to go back. This was long ago. Today I don't rely on anyone else's word. Nowadays I complete all myself.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
