The accreditation program is a thorough review of professional tree care practices.

| January 2, 2012

ValleyCrest Tree Care Services has been accredited under the Tree Care Company Accreditation program administered by the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA). The TCIA Accreditation program is built on the threefold foundation of ethics, quality, and consumer confidence. To date, only 10 percent of TCIA member companies have achieved this highest of honors.
 
TCIA Accreditation means ValleyCrest Tree Care Services adheres to all the accreditation standards and has undergone a rigorous application process. TCIA verified this by conducting an on-site audit of ValleyCrest Tree Care Services facilities and work sites.
 
TCIA Accreditation for ValleyCrest Tree Care Services is in effect for a period of three years, with renewal check-ups required every year. 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. The company is re-accredited every three years.
 
“TCIA Accreditation provides consumers a way to find tree care companies that are trustworthy in their business and tree care practices,” said TCIA President Mark Garvin. “Our TCIA Accreditation program is the only one of its kind in America and will give consumers peace of mind.”
 
The process of becoming accredited is in depth. “The process is incredibly thorough. They left no stone unturned,” said Vic Bernardini, general manager of ValleyCrest Tree Care Services,  Receiving formal recognition as one of the best tree care companies around from TCIA, the recognized industry authority, strengthens our credentials and enhances our ability to deliver the best value and unmatched service to our customers every day.”

In the last six years, ValleyCrest’s Tree Care Division nearly tripled in size from seven locations to more than 20 nationally, Bernardini said.
