TCIA Accreditation

A "seal of approval" for tree care companies.

The Haupt Tree Company, a commercial tree care company based in Sheffield, MA is accredited under a Tree Care Company Accreditation program administered by the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) and built on the threefold foundation of ethics, quality, and consumer confidence.

The new program represents the only business practices and compliance audit process in the tree care industry. Under the process, businesses undergo extensive review of professional practices aimed at safeguarding consumers. The review includes:

  • ethical business conduct
  • best business practices
  • consumer satisfaction
  • formal training and certification of employees
  • compliance with industry standards
  • adherence to safety standards
  • insurance coverage

TCIA Accreditation means The Haupt Tree Company adheres to all the accreditation standards and has undergone a rigorous application process. TCIA verified this by conducting an on-site audit of The Haupt Tree Company.

TCIA Accreditation for The Haupt Tree Company is in effect for a period of three years, with renewal check-ups required every year. The annual renewal ensures that the required number of certified arborists are still on staff, that the company is still properly insured and that the company has a good safety and consumer satisfaction rating. The company is re-accredited every three years.

According to the TCIA  president Mark Garvin, “TCIA Accreditation provides consumers a way to find tree care companies that are trustworthy in their business and tree care practices. 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 no easy task, according to Erik Haupt, company president. “The process is incredibly thorough. They left no stone unturned.” , states Haupt.
