Since 1938, TCIA has been working to elevate the standards of commercial and utility tree care. TCIA supports, promotes and educates our members so they may be more successful. Creation of TCIA’s Accreditation programs – Commercial and Residential Accreditation in 2004 and Utility Contractor Accreditation in 2013 – furthered those efforts. Now we are taking it up another notch by recognizing the companies that have further demonstrated their commitment to best business and safety practices.
In August 2022, we reviewed the data and analytics of all our accredited tree care companies. Based on auditor visits, workers’ comp modification rates and overall commitment to safety, the following companies, in alphabetical order, have scored the highest. They represent the very best of those companies that epitomize a culture of commitment and reinforce TCIA’s values of safety and professionalism.
“There’s a palpable difference when you visit a high-performing company such as those named here. You can see it in their people. The best companies attract the best people, which is especially significant in today’s labor market.” Peter Gerstenberger, TCIA senior vice president for industry expertise.
“This 2022 list of top performers, featuring companies of varied backgrounds, exemplifies how the Accreditation program is designed to both recognize companies that are performing at the highest level and help new and small companies improve their operations,” says Bob Rouse, TCIA senior vice president, programs & services. “Congratulations to the 2022 top performers!”
