Insurance is a requirement for all tree-care company members of TCIA, but not all insurance is created equal. Each business has different needs. Are yours being met? Are you spending more than you need to?
"Our company, Hoppe Tree Service
, became accredited in 2006. We also have Fred Hoppe, one of the first Certified Tree Care Safety Professionals on staff.
We had Peterson Associates give us a comparison quote for our insurance and because of our TCIA Accreditation and having a Certified Tree Care Safety Professional on staff, we were able to save considerable money on our business insurance."
