BARTLETT TREE EXPERTS IS ONE OF FIRST TREE CARE COMPANIES IN CANADA TO BECOME ACCREDITED
Program helps consumers find high quality tree care companies
Bartlett Tree Experts, a residential and commercial tree care company with locations throughout British Columbia and Ontario has been accredited under a new Tree Care Company Accreditation program administered by the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA). The criteria for accreditation are built on the threefold foundation of ethics, quality, and consumer confidence.
The new program represents the only business practices and compliance audit process in the tree care industry. Under the process, businesses undergo extensive review of professional practices aimed at safeguarding consumers. The review includes:
- business practices
- ethical business conduct
- formal training and certification of employees
- compliance with industry standards
- consumer satisfaction
- adherence to safety standards
- insurance coverage
TCIA Accreditation means Bartlett Tree Experts adheres to all the accreditation standards and has undergone a rigorous application process. In fact, each of Bartlett’s locations in Canada has received accreditation by the Association.
TCIA Accreditation for Bartlett is in effect for a period of three years, with renewal check-ups required every year. The annual renewal ensures that the required number of certified arborists is still on staff, that the company is still properly insured and that the company has a good safety and consumer satisfaction rating. The company is re-accredited every three years.
According to TCIA president Mark Garvin, “TCIA Accreditation provides consumers a way to find tree care companies that are trustworthy in their business and tree care practices. Our TCIA Accreditation program is the only one of its kind and will give consumers peace of mind.”
“We want consumers to have the utmost confidence in our company and services. Accreditation is another way we confirm our belief in safety and quality,” said Noah Violini, Vice President and Division Manager in charge of Bartlett’s Canadian operations. “We are pleased Bartlett Tree Experts has been recognized as one of the best tree care companies around.”
Garvin echoes that sentiment. “Bartlett has made a commitment to excellence in all facets of its business. I applaud their efforts.”
