Doug Malawsky, executive vice president and COO of HMI, announced that Taylor Tree Services, Inc. has joined HMI’s Authorized Member (AM) Network. HMI provides property owners, insurers, and others with a full suite of support services for trees and shrubs, including emergency removals, inspections, cause of loss analysis and replacement cost calculations. HMI has established a national network of arborists and professional tree care companies to support these products and services. Taylor Tree Services will support HMI’s programs in Northeast Florida, specifically Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and neighboring areas.
“We are pleased to add Taylor Tree Services to HMI’s network,” said Malawsky. “Having a leading company available to help in coastal areas exposed to tropical storms and hurricanes is invaluable for our clients. Taylor Tree has provided professional tree care for years and represents the quality of service that we promote to our insurance clients as well as property owners.”
“Joining HMI was a strategic move to grow and expand our business,” said Daniel LeBlanc President of Taylor Tree Services, Inc. “Not only does HMI refer qualified leads to us, but they work with us throughout the process providing support in numerous ways, including sales assistance, collection, handling all of the communications with adjusters and insurance companies, and assisting us with any customer service issues. HMI manages the Authorized Member program more like a partnership as opposed to simply a referral generator and provides extensive back office support, which is critical when doing storm work.”
Members of HMI’s AM Network provide property owners with risk mitigation services, tree removal/repair and replacement services and all other services related to tree loss and damage recovery. Other services include reports to support subrogation actions, and replacement costs for lost trees and shrubs. AM Network members receive work referrals and discounted pricing on HMI’s treeFacts Reports. In addition, HMI’s treeFacts Inventory Software is made available exclusively to HMI’s AM Network.
