Terms & Conditions

Tree Snatch™ is intended to be a friendly, enjoyable and useful experience, but as with anything concerning any kind of transactions there are risks involved and we strongly advise you to understand all of these terms before joining. If you spot a listing that you feel is violating the general terms and conditions of Tree Snatch™ as stated below please let us know by contacting us. That said, we are not here to babysit anyone or anyone's listings or disagreements with one another. That is what we have a feedback system in place.
