New Programme Helps Property Owners Find Reputable Tree Care Companies
Bartlett Tree Experts among first to become accredited
Consumers must be selective when choosing a tree care company, especially considering towering climbs and sharp equipment are just a few of the hazards this job entails. That’s why the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) has launched a new accreditation programme based on ethics, quality and consumer confidence. Reflecting a commitment to safety and the community, Bartlett Tree Experts is one of the first companies to become accredited.
TCIA Accreditation means Bartlett Tree Experts complies with industry standards and has undergone a rigorous application process including on-site audit of their offices throughout the country. The review process, aimed at safeguarding consumers, covers a range of topics including training and certification of employees, customer satisfaction, safety practices and insurance coverage. All of Bartlett’s 80+ locations in the U.S. have undergone this evaluation and received accreditation.
According to TCIA president Cynthia Mills, “TCIA Accreditation provides consumers a way to find tree care companies that are trustworthy in their business and tree care practices. Our TCIA Accreditation programme is the only one of its kind in America and will give consumers peace of mind.”
As part of accreditation, Bartlett will be re-evaluated annually to ensure that the required number of certified arborists is still on staff, that the company is still properly insured and that good safety and consumer satisfaction ratings are maintained. The company will be re-accredited every three years.
“We want consumers to have the utmost confidence in our company and services. Accreditation is another way we confirm our belief in safety and quality,” said Greg Daniels, President of Bartlett Tree Experts. “We are proud Bartlett Tree Experts has been recognized as one of the best tree care companies around.”
Mills echoes that sentiment. “Bartlett has made a commitment to excellence in all facets of its business. I applaud their efforts.”
