Tree Trimming – Don’t DIY!
Certain jobs make great DIY projects. Trimming trees IS NOT one of them. Chainsaws account for tens of thousands of injuries that send people to the hospital every year. The National Institute of Occupational Safety ranks tree trimming as one of the most dangerous occupations. Falling tree limbs, people falling from trees or ladders, and contact with power lines all resulted in death or injury.
Workers Compensation insurance can be prohibitively expensive and difficult to get for employees who trim trees. Rather than risking your own employees, hire a professional tree service – one that carries adequate insurance!
