Best Practices

 

Arboricultural and Horticultural Ethics & Standards

Our accreditation by both the Tree Care Industry Association and the Better Business Bureau of NH demands that we adhere to the very best business practices. All of our arborists abide by this pledge:

"As members of Tree Care Industry Association, we strive to uphold the honor and dignity of our profession and improve the quality of life through increasing our knowledge and skills in the management of trees, shrubs, and other landscape plants entrusted to our care.

Further, we strive to upgrade the standards of arboriculture and encourage others to follow our principles. We will conduct ourselves in a fair and just manner in dealing with the public, our employees, and our fellow arborists. We will work constantly to increase the esteem and nurture the acceptance of arboriculture as a profession, for the betterment of our society and the world."

And our entire company adheres to the TCIA Code of Ethics.

As part of our commitment to quality we adhere to the standards set forth by ANSI for arboricultural practices. 

 

Safety: For Our Crews and You

We take safety very seriously, for the health and well being of our employees, and for the protection of you and your property.  We follow the American National Standard, ANSI®Z133-2012  Safety Requirements for Arboriculture Operations, and each of our employees receives job-specific training each year.  Additionally, we certify the majority of our employees in First Aid and CPR training.  And as part of our TCIA accreditation requirement, we also have at least one Certified Treecare Safety Professional for each of our facilities. Safety is THE most important aspect of our job, and we strive daily to improve our safety culture and employee safety awareness.

Insurance

One of the stringent requirements associated with our TCIA Accreditation is that we maintain comprehensive insurance coverage for property, vehicles, liability, and worker’s compensation.  We are happy to provide all clients with a current copy of our Certificate of Insurance, with you as named insured. Disreputable service companies purchase insurance policies, make plenty of copies to distribute to potential clients, and then cancel the coverage. Always request a Certificate of Insurance with the current date and you as named insured from any service provider on your property. Please contact our Woodstock headquarters for more information.

Our Environmental Commitment

At Chippers, environmental initiatives are taking root at all levels - from simple efforts to be as paperless as possible on a daily basis to aggressively seeking ways to reduce our company's fossil fuel reliance.  We encourage our employees to offer suggestions for waste reduction, recycling and reuse at every level of our operation to support sustainable business practices.  We're proud of what we have achieved thus far, but recognize there's much more still to do.  We feel a collective urgency to make strides toward a more ecologically responsible future.  Our clients expect and deserve nothing less.

Our Commitment to Our Communities

We believe in contributing to the communities that sustain us. Although we sponsor and donate to many local causes and charities throughout the region, our Plant a Seed Community Service program provides a direct contribution to the beautification of our communities with the professional green care services we provide: tree, turf, garden, land and forest.
