Tree trimming is a job that requires a professional attitude and a high level of training in order to work safely and productively. The very nature of tree trimming lends itself to many hazards. Of course, we all are aware of the potential of a serious fall, but there are also risks of coming in contact with energized utilities, falling trees and limbs, contact with poison ivy, oak, or even snakes. A good tree trimming program must be designed to provide safe working conditions, the training needed to do the job safely and efficiently, selection of qualified personnel, and providing well-maintained tools to do the job.
