“Big Bad Wood”, a television show appearing on the National Geographic Channel is a reality program centered on the dangers of tree work. Rather than highlighting tree work performed by professionals using industry safety standards, it glorifies dangerous situations when proper precautions aren’t taken. The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) are drafting a joint statement voicing their concerns about this program. ISA realizes Arboriculture can be dangerous when unsafe practices are utilized, but accidents are avoidable when trained Arborists perform the tree work using industry safety standards.
We, along with many other tree care companies take the importance of safety and professionalism very seriously for our staff as well as our clients and their property. The continued advancement of safe work practices and professionalism within the Arboriculture Industry is imperative for providing a high quality product and service for our clients.
KTS is committed to balancing the Performance Triangle when performing all tree work. The Performance Triangle includes Safety, Quality and Productivity. Safety is the foundation of the triangle and always takes precedence. Click here for more information on KTS safety program.
