Why a licensed tree care expert is the right choice for all your tree care needs.

A Licensed Tree Expert (LTE) is a person who has been examined and proven to be competent in the science and art of diagnosing, treating and preventing tree injuries. These professionals demonstrate high ethical and moral standards in tree care and are licensed by the New Jersey Board of Tree Experts.

The reasons the legislation was passed was due to consumer issues with some companies within the tree care industry.

The public has been cheated by many companies performing tree care work who are either unqualified, not having the correct insurance or performing substandard tree service.

Why Tree Removal is Too Dangerous to DIY
Always Hire a Licensed Tree Expert and ask to see there credentials and Insurance Certificate

These days every homeowner is trying to pinch a few pennies– and many just like to take matters into their own hands. When the roof is leaking or a tree needs to be cut down, you might be tempted to do it yourself instead of paying more for professional services. But, just because you could probably get the job done on your own doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good idea. Some things simply must be left to those with training and experience. It could be a matter of life and death.

Below are some of the potential risks involved with removing a tree:

Ask anyone who works in a hospital Emergency Room or Trauma unit. It’s a daily occurrence for people who decided to get on ladders, climb a tree or on the roof to trim a tree, to show up needing emergency care. There’s a reason it’s listed as the number one cause of injury and dismemberment in the United States. Even seasoned Professionals, who take all safety precautions and do this daily, are frequently injured. If these guys are getting hurt, what are you doing in the tree, on the ladder, or on the roof?

Tree hazards can be hard to identify. The branches may look perfectly healthy, but they could be completely rotten and break with added weight on them. Some trees just aren’t safe to climb, so to avoid injury, professionals use specialized equipment to cut them down.

The tools used to remove trees can easily become a hazard if you’re not used to using them. Chain saws and hand saws can obviously inflict terrible harm, but so can ladders. People slip and fall from ladders every day, and one distraction or misstep could end in disaster. New Jersey Licensed Tree Experts use these tools every day all year long and have specialized safety equipment to protect them.

Trees don’t always fall where you expect them to. YouTube is full of videos showing average folks cutting down trees that end up falling on their homes, their cars, and everything else. It’s not quite as simple as cutting a wedge out of the trunk and eye-balling the fall. You could misjudge the angle or underestimate the height of the tree and damage your property– or someone else’s. Even if you get it all right, the tree trunk could come back and hit you at the base.

Many trained, experienced professional tree workers are injured on the job, and occasionally they also meet unfortunate ends. Tree work is dangerous work, and your life and property are more important than saving a little money. So, leave cutting down trees and grinding stumps to a New Jersey Licensed Tree Expert with liability insurance and workmen’s compensation insurance.
