SavATree – First Company in the U.S. to Receive Multi-State TCIA Accreditation

Manchester, NH—June 27, 2006—SavATree, a commercial and residential tree care company headquartered in Bedford Hills, NY has been awarded accreditation for all eighteen of its locations throughout the northeast and Mid-Atlantic region, under a new Tree Care Company Accreditation program administered by the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) and built on the threefold foundation of ethics, quality, and consumer confidence.

The new program represents the only business practices and compliance audit process in the tree care industry. Under the process, businesses undergo extensive review of professional practices aimed at safeguarding consumers. The review includes:

  • best business practices
  • ethical business conduct
  • formal training and certification of employees
  • compliance with industry standards
  • consumer satisfaction
  • adherence to safety standards
  • insurance coverage

TCIA Accreditation means SavATree adheres to all the accreditation standards in all of their eighteen locations. TCIA verified this by conducting an on-site audit of SavATree’s facilities and work sites. SavATree branches will undergo a yearly continuous audit process to uphold their TCIA Accreditation. The annual analysis ensures that the required number of certified arborists are still on staff, that the company is still properly insured and that the company has a good safety and consumer satisfaction rating.

According to TCIA president Cynthia Mills, “TCIA Accreditation provides consumers a way to find tree care companies that are trustworthy in their business and tree care practices. Our TCIA Accreditation program is the only one of its kind in America and will give consumers peace of mind.”

“The process of accrediting all our branches was no easy task,” according to SavATree’s Dane Buell. “The process is incredibly thorough.  They left no stone unturned.” Buell added, “We are pleased SavATree has been recognized as one of the best tree care companies in the country.”

Mills echoes that sentiment. “SavATree has made a commitment to excellence in all facets of its business. I applaud their efforts.”
