Choose Your ISA Certified Arborist Carefully
To complicate matters even more for these uninsured and unskilled workers, tree work is the number one most hazardous occupation in the United States of America. One reason for this dubious ranking is due to the number of deaths and injuries occurring annually to individuals that are not trained on the proper equipment nor correct techniques used in tree service and maintenance. Trees contain hidden hazards such as energized wires, decayed wood and stinging insects that people overlook. In addition, cutting wood under tension with a saw requires a great deal of skill and experience. Wood under tension can be unpredictable, especially to an unskilled worker. Also, working from a ladder or in the crotch of a tree is extremely dangerous for persons that are untrained as well. A safe tree worker is someone who has received the proper training and wears the required safety gear. Proper tree care is complex and it can take up to two years before a person is adequately trained to work in trees. Call a licensed, insured Tree Service Company that employs an I.S.A. Certified Arborist to perform your tree work.
