The following terms and conditions are a part of the confirmation of work to be performed by Timber Ridge Tree Care a division of Servcore Group LLC, and with the information on the front, constitute the entire agreement.
INHERENT HAZARDS AND RISKS
Trees inherently pose a certain degree of hazard and risk from breakage, failure, or other causes and conditions. Recommendations that are made by Servcore Group LLC are intended to minimize or reduce hazardous conditions that may be associated with trees. However, there is and there can be no guarantee or certainty that efforts to correct unsafe conditions will prevent breakage or failure of a tree. Our recommendations should reduce the risk of tree failure, but they cannot eliminate such risk, especially in the event of a storm or any other act of God. Some hazardous conditions in landscapes are apparent, while others require detailed inspection and evaluation. While a detailed inspection and evaluation should and normally does result in the detection of potentially hazardous conditions, there can be no guarantee or certainty that all hazardous conditions will be detected.
