Tree work is rated as the third most dangerous profession, right behind crab fishing and logging. Selecting the right tree care company is a serious decision, as there are no licensing laws that regulate or monitor safety practices in this industry. Consumers must be careful to differentiate between companies that invest in a deeply-rooted culture of safety, and those that offer low prices at the cost of inappropriate risk to their employees and clients.
