It was an unprecedented year in terms of hurricane activity, but it was also unprecedented in that the novel Coronavirus pandemic turned tree care business owners’ processes upside down. As industry leaders (including TCIA and ISA) stated, tree care workers responding to jobs of crisis, were deemed an “Essential Service,” thus permitted to provide services.
Still, it was (and remains) tough for many tree care workers in the US.
The normal means of demonstrating new safety measures and techniques were off the table; as were industry events and conferences. But, adjustments were made and we found new ways to present industry regulations, as well as networking and educational opportunities.
Despite successful adjustments, meeting a tree-assignment threshold was nerve-racking for arborists. The good news – the Storm Responses this 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season were a saving grace!
This year produced the most named storms ever (in recorded history) in the Atlantic – more than doubling season averages.
30 Named Storms
12 Total U.S. Landfalls
More than 60 companies (Members) benefited from storms this hurricane season.
More than ever, we want to serve our tree care company members with additional income opportunities. And we can continue to do just that, even as we approach the winter season.
Because we are the Preferred Vendor for some of the nation’s top insurance companies, we have early leads on the tree jobs that require an insurance-arboriculture connoisseur (us) and an arboriculture-services expert and worker (you).
The year 2020 has required us to make accommodations as well as important business decisions. Becoming a Timber Warriors Member could be for you; learn more about the process by visiting our Arborists Page.
