At Bayou Tree Service, we understand that tree care can be hazardous if not performed correctly. That’s why we prioritize continuous education, training, and equipping our team with extensive knowledge to ensure their safety, enabling them to return home to their families every night. To reinforce our commitment to safety, we have hired Daniel Illg as our Safety Officer. Daniel is a Louisiana Arborist and a TCIA Certified Treecare Safety Professional. His responsibilities include ensuring our team’s safety through regular check-ins, maintaining up-to-date equipment, providing training, and assisting with particularly challenging jobs.

This April, we received the “Safest 70” award from the Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Corporation (LWCC). This award recognizes companies that prioritize the wellbeing of their workforce. By honoring policyholders who emphasize safety, LWCC aims to foster a culture of safety that benefits employees, businesses, and communities alike. We are proud to announce that we are the only tree company to receive this prestigious award in 2023!

“Work Safe, Home Safe” is more to us than just a motto—it’s a lifestyle we demonstrate through our actions, not just our words.
