A Message from Jim Ward 2020

March 27, 2020 by Jim Ward, ISA Certified Arborist PD-53

Since our company began in 1957, the tree care industry has experienced incredible advancement and change. As an industry, we have made considerable improvements in safety awareness, training, and communication. At John B. Ward & Co., we are working diligently to constantly improve our safety culture.

Our safety committee, led by Jim Roach, organizes a safety meeting every Friday at 7 a.m. These meetings are extremely helpful in advancing our safety awareness, team building, and job site protocols. We take pride in performing tree care at the highest industry standards in the safest manner possible. In so doing, we also protect your property. 

Thank you for your continued confidence in our company and for the privilege of caring for your trees. We look forward to walking your property with you!
