What should you look for when choosing a tree trimming company? What is the significance of using an ISA certified arborist for your tree care?

When selecting a tree trimming company, certain accreditations, like ISA, TCIA, and the Better Business Bureau, are a great indicator of a reputable tree company. Good reviews are also a great resource for other customer’s experiences with that particular company. Once you find a few tree trimming services that have both of those elements, it is important to look for a tree company that emphasizes safety. Is safety front and center on their website? Are they using safety recommendations? Do they have hard hats? Do they have safety glasses? Do they have proper tree trimming equipment? All of these factors are important in selecting a professional tree service.

Then it is important to look for someone who is multifaceted. Like Embark Services, does the tree trimming service employ professional climbers, do they have arborists who are experienced in removals of both big and small trees and are they well-versed in tree trimming for commercial maintenance or trimming that’s detailed for residential clients who are looking for something more specific. Proper equipment for the job is also a very important factor to consider when selecting a tree trimming service. Having the right trucks, like a bucket truck or a stump grinder, mean the job will be done more efficiently and more safely which saves you time, money, and headaches.

Certified Arborists are the only people that you should trust your tree work too. Find a tree company that has an ISA certification, because it requires rigorous educational experience and work experience to obtain. This certification is recognized worldwide and the organization that controls the certification is a network for science-based information. It is a credible source that allows you to know the tree trimming company you are trusting to work on your trees is knowledgeable on the subject.

During your tree evaluation meeting, you want to hear from the professional tree service, what they plan to trim, why and how they plan to go about the job. This is another great opportunity to listen for what safety measures they will take while onsite. At Embark Services, we take the time to get to know each of our customers and understand the story behind the trees and the property as a whole. This allows us to be attached to the trees in a similar way as the client which allows us to understand the emotional and economical importance behind the trees.

In summary, making sure that the tree company has certified arborists, that safety is at the forefront of what is important to them as a company, and knowing that their knowledge of the situation, industry, and care for the trees is a top priority. This means you are hiring a company you will want to work with for a long time. Lastly, proper insurance adds peace of mind to any hiring process. Embark Services is insured and bonded so that no matter what the size of the tree trimming project is, our professional trained tree crews are covered to safely handle whatever is needed.
