The Davey Tree Expert Company recently renewed its Accreditation in accordance with Tree Care Company Accreditation standards put forth by the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), America's oldest and most respected tree care trade association. Davey Tree’s 8,000 employees provide tree care, grounds maintenance and environmental consulting services for the residential, utility, commercial and government markets in more than 47 states and 5 Canadian provinces. Accredited tree care companies must re-apply every three years so that their practices can be reviewed and the continuation of best business practices can be verified.
TCIA Accreditation is the only program of its kind in the tree care industry. It is a voluntary process evaluating businesses to ensure that professional practices and standards are met by all employees that work on your property. When you hire an accredited tree care company, you can rest assured that this organization has been checked for proper insurance, applicable licenses, reliable and ethical customer service practices, and meets strict operating standards. A key objective for Accreditation is to help companies provide the highest levels of service to customers.
To achieve business Accreditation, businesses undergo an extensive review of professional practices aimed at safeguarding consumers, including:
► Consumer satisfaction
► Best business practices
► Formal employee training
► Compliance with industry standards
► Adherence to safety and quality standards
► Insurance coverage
As a measure of protection to consumers, businesses undergo renewal check-ups annually. The annual renewal ensures that the company continues to employ trained professionals, is still properly insured and has a good safety and consumer satisfaction rating.
The 3-year Accreditation achievement demonstrates that Davey Tree has undergone an extensive review of practices as well as a site visit, and adheres to all accreditation standards.
