When we are assessing the health needs of your trees, the first thing we
consider is any potential damage or danger that might occur as a result of branch
and or tree failure. Secondly, we at ArborCare and Consulting consider the health
of the trees and the important role they play in the overall landscape picture.
A number of factors are considered when pricing a job. Among these are the
costs of our overhead (i.e. fuel and other consumables, insurance, salaries,
marketing, recycling costs, equipment repairs, etc.) the time necessary to
complete the job (which includes the time for the bid, at the job site and at the
recycling site), the degree of difficulty, and the tools needed to efficiently and
safely complete the job. We would love to work with our clients (and regularly do)
in whatever ways we can safely and legally minimize our overhead to give our
clients the absolute best price.
With ArborCare and Consulting, you can be assured that all of our services are
performed with safety in mind and that we are in compliance with every applicable
ANSI and OSHA standard and the I.S.A. Best Management Practices, to ensure our
clients that they are receiving the highest quality of service. Finally, as with all of
our services, everything we do is tailored to the client’s requests in order to
ensure the finished product results in the client’s total satisfaction.
