The Leaf-let – Spring 2014

 Published March 2014

2013 – Year in Review

Looking back at 2013, we saw Logan Tree Experts (LTE) continue to grow and expand its services. We were proud to be one of only two local companies offering TreeAzin treatments to combat the upcoming Emerald Ash Borer infestation (see EAB article).

By far, 2013 was preoccupied with the July wind storm  that devastated the northern portion of our service area. Thousands of trees were toppled, damaged and destroyed. The LTE crew displayed their technical knowledge,experience and high standards by safely removing high risk storm damaged trees while protecting and preserving our clients properties.

We appreciate the trust and opportunity given to us by our clients during that time. We would also like to say thank you to our clients who showed great patience and understanding as LTE postponed scheduled work to help in this disaster.
Commitment and Re-Commitment

While 2013 offered many highlights and opportunities for LTE we also recognized some areas in need of improvement. We understand that satisfaction and happy clients drive our business and we need to improve to serve you, our valued clients.

LTE needs to reduce client wait times for service, improve communications and increase customer service. In order to accomplish this we have implemented these changes:

1/ New dedicated sales person
2/ New dedicated Plant Health Care specialist
3/ New streamline processes for client contact, site visits, scheduling & invoicing

We want to grow with you as our clients and hope we can prove that to you in 2014!
