The tick scare revolves around going out into the local cut your own lots where the ticks live. There are a lot of ticks in our area this year. Brushing through tall grass and crawling under a tree to cut it down is where the greatest exposure to ticks will come from.
Our trees come from Canada or N. Carolina where they are cut, wrapped and placed on trucks for transport. Any tick that might be present would likely drop off the trees during the cutting and dragging process or are blown off during trucking . We have never had a customer or employee tell us of getting a tick on them from any of our trees.
