The Hazards of Tree Care and Maintenance

Residential, commercial, and utility-related tree care are among the most dangerous professions in the country. Without proper training and an awareness of one’s surroundings, professional arborists risk serious injury or even death on the job due to:

  • Electrocution from live utility wires
  • Falling from a height while working in a tree
  • Being struck by a falling branch
  • Coming into contact with dangerous power equipment
  • Working during inclement weather
  • Improperly applying pesticides or other chemicals

What’s more, unsafe tree care practices place homeowners, members of the public, and property at risk for potentially catastrophic accidents. As such, any tree care company in Northeast Ohio worth its salt must heavily invest in thorough safety training, and must be licensed, certified, and insured to protect itself and its clients.
