ArborCare Tree Service Becomes First TCIA Accredited Company in Canada
January 1, 2015
Program helps consumers find high-quality tree care companies
ArborCare Tree Service Ltd., a commercial tree care company located in Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, and Vernon/Kelowna, British Columbia, has been accredited under a new Tree Care Company Accreditation program administered by the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) and built on the threefold foundation of ethics, quality and consumer confidence.
The new program represents the only business practices and compliance audit process in the tree care industry. Under the process, businesses undergo extensive review of professional practices aimed at safeguarding consumers. The review includes:
- Best business practices
- Ethical business conduct
- Formal training and certification of employees
- Compliance with industry standards
- Consumer satisfaction
- Adherence to safety standards
- Insurance coverage
TCIA Accreditation means ArborCare Tree Service Ltd. adheres to all the accreditation standards and has undergone a rigorous application process. TCIA verified this by conducting an on-site audit of ArborCare Tree Service Ltd.
TCIA Accreditation for ArborCare Tree Service Ltd. is in effect for a period of three years, with renewal check-ups required every year. The annual renewal ensures that the required number of certified arborists are still employed on staff, that the company is still properly insured and that the company has a good safety and consumer satisfaction rating. The company is re-accredited every three years.
According to TCIA president Mark Garvin, “TCIA Accreditation provides consumers a way to find tree care companies that are trustworthy in their business and tree care practices. Our TCIA Accreditation program is the only one of its kind in America and will give consumers peace of mind.”
The process of becoming accredited is no easy task, according to Codie Anderson, VP of field operations. “The process is incredibly thorough. They left no stone unturned,” states Codie Anderson. “We are pleased ArborCare has been recognized as one of the best tree care companies in Canada.”
Garvin echoes that sentiment. “ArborCare has made a commitment to excellence in all facets of its business. I applaud their efforts.”
