“I needed to have an arborist inspect a large number of damaged trees, to determine if the damage was related to a particular event, and if the trees would recover. HMI provided me with a report that was very thorough and informative, and included all of the information I needed to resolve the claim. Claims involving plant material can be very complicated to resolve, HMI makes it easy.“
