- nwtreespecialistsFAQ. Can my landscape company handle routine tree care?
Generally speaking, most landscape companies carry an LCB license issued by the Landscape Contractors Board which limits the type of work they can perform. Landscape companies typically perform routine work with their “feet on the ground” so to speak, offering services such as mowing, edging, weeding and trimming of shrubs; along with landscape installation. Additionally, most landscape companies are not trained in the science of Arboriculture and tree physiology.
Tree work often entails climbing up into trees, “feet off the ground” which requires special skill, training and industry knowledge. Because of the high risk tree work involves, tree services are required to be licensed through the CCB, Oregon’s Construction Contractor’s Board and must carry workers compensation insurance on employees in cases of tree worker injury.
Even routine tree care should be left to the experts. Call us today for a no-cost tree care consultation #treecare #isa #nwtreespecialists #pnw #arborist #tree
