We only want to do work we can be proud of. We do not cut corners, therefore we do not cut costs. Some people look for the cheapest contractor, and ultimately regret the quality of service. If you want the job done right by a professional, expect to pay for it. Many businesses claim things they do not have in order to sell jobs. Always check backgrounds and experience, as well as documentation. Before hiring anyone, check to actually see that the company is certified, licensed, bonded, insured, and has worker's compensation.

All employees are background checked, reference checked, trained, and constantly educated on the latest safety, research, and practices. Education and advancement is encouraged.
Chris Francis is an ISA Certified Arborist (#SO-6157A) and is Alabama State Licensed in: Tree Surgery, Landscape Design, Setting of Landscape Plants, and Ornamental & Turf Pest Control Supervisor. John Renfroe (staff landscape designer) is also an ISA Certified Arborist (#SO-6580A). All of these certifications and licenses require education, experience, and examination; some require continuing education credits to maintain. The importance of licensing and certification cannot be stressed enough. Chris Francis has also received certificates from classes such as: Irrigation, Pond Construction, and Landscape Lighting. “Professionals” need to be able to provide proof of their professionalism.
Chris Francis and staff members are also involved in many organizations, including: International Society of Arboriculture (#179909 & #199576), Southern Chapter ISA, Alabama Urban Forestry Association, Baldwin County Home Builders Association, Business Networking International, Irrigation Association of Alabama, and Alabama Nursery & Landscape Association.
Chris Francis Landscapes is certified, licensed, bonded, insured, and carries workers compensation. These five things should be required of any contractor before work begins. Remember, there are no sign police; so, just because someone says they are or it is written on their truck or business card, that is not proof. Get it in writing! Honest companies will not hesitate to provide certificates for you.
Most of our work takes place in Baldwin and Mobile Counties of Alabama. We enjoy working in: Daphne, Fairhope, Montrose, Spanish Fort, Point Clear, Mobile, Saraland, Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, Belforest, Loxley, Foley, Magnolia Springs, and unincorporated areas.
Chris Francis Landscapes is now Chris Francis Tree Care http://www.chrisfrancistreecare.com/ . The focus is on tree care instead of landscaping. So, even if you already have a lawn maintenance service, a landscaper, or other care-taker(s), let Chris Francis Tree Care serve all of your tree service needs. Arboricultural operations include consulting, inspection, pruning, removal, fertilization, testing, pest control, support systems, and so much more. Our work is rooted in science and performed in accordance with ANSI Standards and ISA Best Management Practices. Don’t be fooled by an unqualified “tree expert”. Practices to avoid include: topping, spiking, root cutting, over-lifting, flush cuts, and wound painting. If someone tries to sell you on these ill practices, run away and call a Certified Arborist.
