Talking Trees: How to Hire a Safe Tree Service


In this episode of Talking Trees, Davey Expert and ISA Board Certified Master Arborist Steve Nagy lets you know one critical thing to keep in mind when hiring a tree service: Do not compromise on safety!

One of the most important things to consider is if the arborist has communicated with you about the work to be done and any risk involved. Remember, the lowest bidder on a project is not always the safest bidder. Selecting a tree service company that works unsafely can cost you far more in the long run.

In addition to the questions discussed in this episode, do some research. A visit to the TCIA (Tree Care Industry Association) website can provide you with a list of accredited tree service companies that meet industry standards for quality and safety. 

Request a consultation from your local certified Davey arborist to get work done safely in your yard.
