Job Briefings are an essential part of TCIA Accreditation

Job Briefings are an essential part of TCIA Accreditation. They ensure that everyone working the job understands the challenges they may face and the strategy for the day.

TCIA Accreditation provides homeowners with a way to find tree care companies that are trustworthy in their business and tree care practices.

When a homeowner hires a tree service company, a key concern is always whether the company will do what it promises. Giroud Tree and Lawn is proud to announce that it was recently awarded Accreditation by the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA).

The TCIA Accreditation process is rigorous. Giroud Tree and Lawn had to pass a 63-point evaluation that included audits of business practices, employee training, safety standards and customer satisfaction. Giroud's video helps homeowners understand the process and the benefits of working with a TCIA Accredited tree care company.

“The process to become accredited isn't easy,” according to Lou Giroud, President and ISA Certified Arborist of Giroud Tree and Lawn. “While Giroud’s TCIA Accreditation underscores that homeowners can buy from us with confidence, it’s actually the way we’ve done business since we started in 1974. We always do exactly what we promise to make our customers happy.”

A voluntary program aimed at safeguarding homeowners, a company earns TCIA Accreditation after meeting stringent criteria for:

  •     Consumer satisfaction
  •     Ethical business practices
  •     Formal employee training
  •     State and federal safety regulations,
  •     Compliance with industry standards
  •     Adherence to safety and quality standards
  •     Insurance coverage

TCIA’s Accreditation Program is the only business practices and compliance audit program for tree care companies in America,” explains Bob Rouse, TCIA Chief Program Officer. “Accreditation provides homeowners with a way to find tree care companies that are trustworthy in their business and tree care practices.”

Once accredited, businesses undergo renewal check-ups annually. The annual renewal ensures that the company continues to employ trained professionals, is still properly insured and has a good safety and consumer satisfaction rating. Accredited tree care companies must also re-apply every three years so that their practices can be reviewed and the continuation of best business practices can be verified.
