To clear up some confusion about the May 15th, 2020 reopening that is occurring is happening in Central, Finger Lakes, Mohawk Valley, North Country, and Southern Tier New York regions.
Governor Cuomo has provided the method in which the state will reopen for business. As of right now the state is broken into 10 regions and each region has to met 7 metrics to get the green light to reopen to see view the status of each region click here. Western New York region has only met 5 out the 7 metrics that allow a region to reopen. This means that we are still only allowed to provide hazardous tree removals and plant health care solutions still but not allowed to provide: pruning, topsoil and tree plantings. As of right now the state pause has been changed to Mid-June meaning that we won't be able to complete certain services in till then. We are stilled devoted as before to make sure that all our customers get their tree care needs meet to protect the health of our trees. All our customers with pruning, plantings and topsoil projects will moved to first of schedule and made the highest priority to have work completed.

As of March 30, 2020, we have been declared a non-essential service of the NYS Executive Order 202.6. We sent in a request form to NYS to become an essential service due to the fact that with all storms and dead trees that need to be taken care of before causing property damage to our client's houses that are already quarantined to their home and then have to deal with that problem on top of it. We will be updating our website and social media with updates as they come in. Facebook
What does this mean for our clients that are on our schedule? We are waiting on our request to the NYS to be designated an essential service. We will honor our contracts with all our clients as soon as the executive order is lifted. Once the order is lifted or we get approved to work again we will be focusing our efforts on the high priority jobs with dangerous or dead trees first. These are trying times for everyone and together we will get through this hard time! Thank you all, our clients and customers for choosing us for your tree care needs!
