Prestige Tree Experts will remain open, and provide our services as scheduled!
As we’re sure you have heard by now, Governor Hogan has ordered that all non-essential businesses close at 5pm, Monday, March 23, 2020. However, Prestige Tree Experts falls under the essential commercial facilities sector. Arborists, landscapers, roofers, and many other service based companies are all currently allowed to continue operating normally without limitation. The full text and explanation can be found in the Office of Legal Counsel – Interpretive Guidance – Number COVID19-04, released 3/23/2020. Please see Section 2, b, ii, for the specific text regarding arborists if you are interested.
UPDATE – 3/30/2020 – Due to our classification as an essential business, we are still allowed to operate during the “stay-at-home” order to be put in effect 3/30 at 8pm. We will continue to serve our customers!
For our customers’ safety, as well as our own, we will encourage and offer Virtual Estimates (which you can watch a short video about on our Facebook page), social distancing, reduced crew sizes, daily truck sterilization, and the ability for our customers to mail in or give electronic payment among other things. We are happy to make any accommodations that will make our customers more comfortable!
We will continue to stay up to date on the situation, and we will make announcements as needed.
If you have any questions relating to this, or any other aspect of your tree care, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
