Our customers often offer reassurances about where we drop trees in their yard. We’ve been told things like: “That fence is really old and we are going to replace it. If you hit it, it’s no big deal.” But for us, it is a big deal. We understand that our customers are trying to help make our job easier for us, and we appreciate the thought. However, dropping a tree onto anything but the ground, whether on purpose or by accident, is unprofessional and something we try to avoid at all costs.
At Classic City Arborists, we are dedicated to the protection, not only of the customer and surrounding property, but also of the environment. When we plan the removal of a tree, we meticulously evaluate the immediate area, and determine the best location for dropping the tree or limbs where there will be the least amount of impact to existing wildlife and property. Then we carefully execute those plans utilizing our skills as certified arborists.
In addition, we have to consider other potential customers. While a customer may have allowed us to drop a limb onto their fence, another customer driving past may see the limb on the fence and wonder just what kind of experts we really are. We want to present a professional image to our customers, because we are professionals doing a professional job. We have taken classes and passed the test to be considered an ISA Certified Arborist. Every year, we are required to collect continuing education classes to maintain that certification, and to keep our knowledge and skills up to date.
We want this hard work and dedication to our field to shine through with every job that we complete. Once we leave a job site, you shouldn’t be able to tell we were even there – besides the tree we were hired to remove.
