Police Issue Warning against Amateur Door Knocking Arborists
With the series of storms hitting New Zealand over the past few weeks, there have been raising concerns over the past few weeks over amateur tree cutters door-knocking, intimidating and coercing residents and owners to user their services, often for exorbitant prices. Similar occurrences recently received media coverage around the Glen Eden and West Auckland region where elderly couples in particular were the target of such aggressive sales techniques. Police issued a warning to residents to no engage such dodgy amateurs and instead call emergency services to report.
Amateur and unqualified arborists have been bad news for the tree removal and tree maintenance industry globally with thousands of nightmare stories of property damage, shady techniques and lack of professionalism. Insurance companies often also end up refusing property damage claims where unqualified arborists have been engaged, adding to the frustration of the parties involved.
Like the saying goes in virtually every industry – you get what you pay for. This holds true for arborists as well.
