Collier County, Naples,Fl. Read this article listed in the Naples Daily News this past weekend regarding a homeowner who hired an unlicensed contractor to trim her tree and paid for it in city fines, $6,000, and a badly damaged tree. 

1. After checking the tree service you are interested in hiring to care for your trees has the proper licensing for tree work (not lawn or landscape care), verify that they have the proper worker's compensation and commercial liability insurance. The proper tree work insurance protects the homeowner from assuming any liability in the event of an injury, death or damages.

2. Rated by the insurance industry, tree work competes with the fishing industry for the number one spot as the most dangerous job. Any company performing tree work over 12 feet high is required by the state to carry workers' compensation insurance code 0106 and must cover any and all personnel on the property during tree care and removal operations

3. An up to date commercial liability insurance policy that specifically covers tree care and removal operations is also a requirement by the county to cover any property damage. These insurance requirements are in place to protect you, the homeowner, and the employees of the tree company performing this specialized work.

We are pleased to provide you with our insurance certificates upon request: worker's compensation and commercial liability

Remember that improperly pruned trees:

  • Predispose tree to an increased risk of failure during wind events creating hazards to people, property, utilities and emergency access
  • Create defects and deformities forming weaknesses which can remain for the life of the tree
  • Produce more debris during a wind event which adds more taxpayer burden
  • Increase total canopy loss in our community
  • Increase loss of shade and screening values
  • Increases growth of the tree canopy to replace what was removed creating extreme density which is weak wooded and involves poor branch attachments
  • Require more frequent pruning
  • Cost more to prune in the future

The Best Management Practices are focused on reducing non-point source pollution resulting from fertilization or pesticide application.
