Work incidents that are related to tree care are actually very common. They can be fatal too if you aren’t careful. Tree care is a hazardous field due to the scope of the work and the usage of heavy machinery. If any unlicensed tree professionals are harmed on your property, you might become liable for all of their medical costs. Also, those who perform tree care unlicensed likely aren’t abiding by safe practices. Not only will your desired property aesthetic suffer, but your business or home might also become susceptible to fallen tree damages. To help you avoid the harm from unlicensed tree specialists, our team at Harford Tree is fully licensed to perform some comprehensive tree care on your home or business. Read on to learn why you should avoid hiring any unlicensed tree specialists!
Unlicensed Tree Specialists Do Not Abide by Industry Standards for Pruning and Trimming
Pruning and trimming are important services that your trees will need. This way, they maintain their manicured appearances, positively contribute to your property’s overall curb appeal, and reach their full growth potential. Unlicensed tree professionals usually do not abide by these standards for trimming or pruning. They partake in detrimental practices such as tree topping and tripping, both of which could lead to unnecessary bark ripping and other kinds of tree injuries. Licensed professionals like our tree surgeons here at Harford Tree perform safe practices like thinning out to cut back on those unwanted branches and help promote your tree’s overall health.
You Might Become Responsible if an Unlicensed Tree Professional or Their Employees are Hurt
Tree care, especially tree removal, can be dangerous. An unlicensed professional typically does not carry the proper knowledge needed to carry out correct tree removal and trimming safely. When they’re not aware of any safe industry practices, unlicensed professionals and their employees could sustain:
- Stings or bites from insects or animals in the trees
- Infections from scrapes and cuts
- Rashes from poisonous leaves in trees
- Electrical burns from power lines
- Injuries from dangerous power tools
- Eye injuries from airborne wood pieces
If any of this happens on your property, the unlicensed tree specialists will not take responsibility for the injuries. This means you could be legally responsible and possibly sued. Don’t deal with this possible headache, and hire professional tree specialists from Harford Tree instead!
