Yes, it’s true. Even the professionals get it wrong sometimes. At the end of the day, we’re only human and prone to mistakes. This just tends to happen, especially when it comes to tree care because every customer’s project is unique. Although we apply the same set of safety standards and workmanship to every job, different variables that lay ahead will inevitably cause mistakes which we always try to learn from as well as avoid.
We have heard about the occasional injury due to improper usage or placement of a chainsaw. You can see here from this statement that even after hundreds of tree projects and hours spent using that chainsaw, injuries still occur. This is a dangerous business and we try to avoid injuries at all costs by adhering to a solid set of safety principles.
Timing is another issue. More often than not, it involves pruning. The trimming of trees is a very delicate solution we provide property owners in that, it shouldn’t be done just to do it. Each cut should be made for a specific reason and there are just certain times of the year where (depending on the tree species) we may be too early or too late. This can cause problems with insects as well as wounds that fail to heal properly.
