Continuing on with the history of how Tree Work Now began and grew into Orlando’s preferred tree service for tree removal and tree trimming:

The local market was flooded with tree services, including many fly-by-nighters who sprung up after the hurricanes. And many of the local trees had been thinned out by the same storms. I had no equipment, no capital, no business training, no crew, and a separate full-time job demanding my attention. I did have a sense of direction from God, a strong motivation to provide for my wife’s medical needs, an obsessive work ethic, a thrill for applying creativity towards innovation, a knack for marketing, and a failure-is-not-an-option inner drive.

Orlando Tree Service Drug Free Policy

There have been many Orlando tree trimmers with excellent skills whom we’ve refused to hire due to positive pre-employment drug tests. Other Orlando area tree services have expressed surprise as to how Tree Work Now keeps such a highly skilled work force – or any work force at all -  given our zero tolerance drug free program. From my experience, I would venture to guess that 85% of the people doing Orlando tree removal and tree trimming are using illegal substances.

Most of them are exclusively using marijuana and swear to me that it is done only during non-work hours and does not in the least affect their tree trimming performance. So why do I insist on enforcing our policy so strictly? In short, its what’s best for the customer, the employee and my company as well.

Firstly, you as the tree service customer in Orlando deserve tree pruning job performance on your property that is absolutely untainted by substance abuse. Given the dangers inherent in heavy wood, heights, and heavy equipment, it is ludicrous to add another safety hazard into this potent mixture! We at Tree Work Now respect your property and are taking every precaution to preserve its beauty and value. Please see our Property Promise page for more details. Another important drug free consideration is potential theft of items on your property. It is common knowledge that many thefts are drug-related as addicts seek to fuel their expensive cravings. It is amazing to me how many Orlando homeowners automatically entrust their property to the lowest bidder without thought to the quality and character of the crews doing the work. Intoxicated workers are obviously a danger to themselves and co-workers as well which brings on many lawsuits upon homeowners who hire tree services which lack Workers’ Compensation coverage.

Secondly, being drug-free is best for our employees on a number of levels. More of their funds can be used for productive expenditures to benefit their families, there are fewer complications in their relationships, they are better role models, they need not fear being arrested. The list could go on. Drug-free businesses do more to enforce drug laws (as far as usage goes) than law enforcement.

Thirdly, our company is better off. The liability of employing drug users has put many tree services out of business, and we’ve worked too hard for too long building an industry standard-raising company to take such a risk. Another huge factor for us is trust. If a tree trimmer lies about drug use, what else is he lying to us about? When nearly every job site is life threatening, we need to have a high level of trust on the teams who are trimming and removing your trees in Orlando.

So, I recommend that you only hire contractors who have a drug free program and also actually enforce it! Believe it or not, I’m not aware of any other local Orlando tree services who are as vigilant as Tree Work Now in enforcing a drug free workplace.
