GILFORD, N.H.—Belknap Landscape Co. (BLC) recently acquired tree service accreditation status through the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA).

“The TCIA Accreditation is a seal of approval, and helps Lakes Region consumers find tree care companies that have been inspected and accredited on adherence to industry standards for quality and safety,” says Andrew Morse, BLC director of landscape management. “TCIA also ensures accredited companies maintain properly trained staff and are dedicated to ethical business practices.”

Belknap Landscape continually updates and refines skills and education for staff in all the company’s division as the landscape industry requires. The company’s Arboriculture Division is dedicated to preserving the health and vigor of one of most valued landscape features on Lakes Region properties, providing the a full range of tree care services all over central New Hampshire. Included are waterfront tree surveys in compliance with the Shoreland Water Quality Protection Act, cabling and or bracing of weak limbs or crotches, vista pruning, tree removal by hand and with the use of the company’s crane.

“Part of the TCIA Accreditation approval process was an inventory of credentials showing BLC employee horticulture/forestry-related degrees, certificates, and licenses,” says Morse. “Belknap Landscape maintains NH Division of Pesticide Control supervisory and applicators licenses over multiple employees, for both ornamentals and turf.”

In 2012, Morse says, Clark Gareau, BLC’s head arborist/crane operator, completed his course of study and exams to become a Certified Tree Care Safety Professional, a Certification awarded by TCIA and complimented that safety certification by becoming a Certified NH Arborist.

“Obtaining the TCIA Accreditation status is a worthy goal for our company,” Morse concludes.
