In our previous blog post, we looked at how Embark's commitment to excellence results in hiring the best individuals as Embark crew members. That constant strive for excellence and total customer satisfaction also drives Embark to always put safety first. Embark's crew stays safe while performing dangerous projects, and customers and their property remain protected as well.
When you hire a landscape or tree care company, you are entrusting the care and health of your lawn, landscape gardens and trees to their workers, experience and skill set. However, not all tree care companies are created equal, and it is important to understand the differences between them and what makes Embark Services the premiere tree care company in the greater Houston area.
When it comes to tree care and maintenance, homeowners will often first try to handle tree pruning, tree disease treatment and tree removal themselves. These are time-consuming, physically challenging endeavors with a high amount of risk, both to the homeowner's safety and to the rest of their property.
Embark Services is the first tree care company in Texas to become accredited through the Tree Care Company Accrediting program administered by the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) and built on the three fold foundation of ethics, quality and consumer confidence. Embark was also a recent recipient of TCIA's 2011 Outstanding Safety award for its commitment to worker safety in all aspects of tree care projects.

Embark Tree and Landscape Services, a TCIA-accredited company headquartered in Houston, Texas, has adopted what it calls Safety Behavior Assessment, or SBA. The main objective of SBA is to observe and provide positive recognition to workers engaging in behaviors that promote the health and well being of themselves and those around them. At the same time, SBA targets risky behaviors for improvement.
Congratulations to our Embark Services Team for receiving TCIA's 2011 Safety Award for Outstanding Company Contribution to Safety!
Reducing work-related fatalities, injuries, and illnesses overall demonstrates a true commitment to improving the safety and well-being of tree care workers across the industry. Lowering accident rates also contributes to a safe work environment and helps to ensure all work is performed with the utmost care and attention.
Care for your trees needs to be done by skilled, trained and insured professionals, both for the health and beauty of your trees and for your personal safety. Ever year both tree care workers and homeowners are killed performing unsafe tree work. For your personal safety and financial protection, hire a tree care company that is professional.
