Don't Risk It: The High Cost of Amateur Tree Service Companies

Saving a few bucks on tree care might sound good—until it costs you your beloved century-old oak.

When it comes to the care of the trees on your property, the decision to hire a certified professional versus an uncertified handyman can have long-lasting impacts not only on your landscape's health and beauty but also on its safety. Here's why the choice of an ISA Certified Arborist is critical, especially in Calgary.

The Perils of Poor Tree Care

Imagine this: A towering birch, once sturdy and lush, now teetering perilously over your child's bedroom, weakened not by age but by the reckless cuts of an uncertified pruner. This isn't just a potential hazard; it's a heart-wrenching risk that homeowners face when they opt for unqualified tree care services.

  • Property Damage: Uncertified contractors often lack an understanding of the proper techniques for tree pruning, leading to weakened trees that are more susceptible to breaking—particularly under the weight of Calgary's heavy snows. Such negligence can result in severe damage to your property, from crushed roofs to smashed vehicles.

  • Personal Safety: Worse, the safety of your family and guests could be at stake. Improperly secured limbs, incorrect use of tools, and a basic disregard for safety standards can turn a simple tree trimming into a dangerous event.

  • Financial Liability: If a tree that was improperly cared for falls and causes injury or damage, you, the homeowner, could be held liable. The costs of legal proceedings and potential settlements can far exceed what any minor savings might have been from hiring a cheaper, non-certified service.

The Certified Arborist Advantage

When you choose an ISA Certified Arborist, like those at Evergreen LTD, you're not just hiring someone from classified ads with a chainsaw and some snips. You're investing in comprehensive care backed by education, experience, and ethical standards.

  • Expertise That Matters: ISA Certified Arborists in Calgary are trained to understand tree biology and the specific challenges posed by the local climate. This expertise allows them to make informed decisions that promote the health and longevity of your trees.
