A selection of 261 homeowner reviews:
“Every spring, Davey comes through and trims up our trees. They've done a couple of trees for us. They also knocked down a tree that's probably 18 inches in diameter. They did a very good, careful job. It was against one of our buildings, so it was a tremendous feat on their part. I'd give them A+, without a doubt. They're a great company.”
“They did some fertilization work for us. They have always done excellent work. They're very knowledgeable, so I don't trust anybody else with my trees. I would rate the overall experience as an A+.”
“They were trimming some trees for me. We've used them before, and they're very responsive and professional. I'd say they earned an A+ for the overall experience.”
“Everything is great with them. I would recommend them.”
“They do my lawn service. I love them. They do a great job. They're always having to stay on a stringent schedule to make sure that they do it on correct intervals for my grass service. The results on my grass is great, one of the best lawns in the cul-de-sac. I'd give them A+. I tell everybody about them because everyone wants to know, 'Who does your grass?'”
“They take care of my lawn. They treat it, but I'm not sure what all they do for it because my husband handles all that. It's basically lawn care. My lawn is absolutely beautiful, so I can recommend them. It's very nice. I'd give them an A+ grade.”
“I've been using them for years. They do my yard service. I have a fertilizer and weed treatment plan with them. My overall experience would be A+, and that's the reason I'm staying with them. I have recommended them to others.”
“They do regular lawn maintenance for me. They give good service. They're an A+ company.”
“In the past, everything has been fine. They were supposed to come today, but I have not been at home, so I don't know if they've been there or not. For years they've trimmed my trees. They also did borer treatment on a tree and treated some other shrubberies for some problems. They're usually prompt about when they say they're coming each time, and I like the arborist. When I call, they send the arborist out to evaluate the shrubbery and trees, so I've been really pleased with them. I'd give them an A+ grade. They really do clean up everything afterward when they trim my trees.”
“They do my lawn fertilizer, disease control, and annual pruning. They have removed trees and done tree fertilizing. I like the personal service by the rep. I would grade my overall experience with them as A+. I have already recommended them lots of times.”
“They've done everything on my property for almost 20 years. They took down a pine tree that was intertwined with a bunch of other trees; it was really precarious the way it was and they took care of it. I'm totally satisfied, a hundred percent. They are the only ones I ever use. I'd give them A+ for the overall experience. It's been great. I have recommended them. I've given out full recommendations.”
“They gave me an estimate for removing trees on the last occasion that I used them. They are very knowledgeable and a good company. I would give them an A+ rating for the overall experience. I have recommended them.”
“They have removed trees, do my lawn service, aerate my yard, and weed control. As far as their tree removal, I think they're very, very careful. They've had to take some tress down that were really close to my neighbor's house, and it did not make me nervous at all. I would give the overall experience with them an A+.”
“They did a tree service for us. They were quick and efficient. I'd say they're an A+.”
“I like Davey Tree.”
“I know they've done the fertilizing of the grass, and they do other things as necessary. I had no complaints and I would recommend them.”
“I have no complaints, and I'm likely to recommend them.”
“They maintain my yard, and on a weekly or grass cutting basis, fertilize and mulch a few times a year. They help remove trees when we have that need. They do a good job of checking in advance to say they're going to be here to put some pesticides down. They're very well managed. They earned an A+.”
“They do the yard, shrubbery, and trees. I've had them for years, because they do well. They're on time and they do what they say. I'd say they're an A.”
“They come out and service the tree. They do the borer treatment and that kind of thing. The tree is still alive. They call and say they're coming out, and I never know whether they physically come out other than to put a little notice on my door. They earned an A.”
“They did some tree trimming, as well the fertilization and chemical treatment on my lawn. Overall, they do a very good job. Whenever I have a problem, they jump right on it. I would grade my overall experience with them as A.”
“They pruned one of our trees, our dogwood tree. They seemed to do a thorough job on the work they did with the tree and made it look really nice. They did a lot of work on it, more than I thought would be done. They did a lot of attention to detail. They deserve an A.”
“They do lawn treatments for weeds. They fertilize and aerate. They call before they come to make sure it's OK. If I call and have a question or concern, they'll come out within a day or so and talk to me about whatever. They're responsive. I'd give them an A grade.”
“They were taking down a large, very tall, dead tree. It was in a bad area where they had to be very careful about landscaping, and they did an excellent job. They get an A+.”
“They were fertilizing some trees. They get the highest grade.”
“They came and sawed down our knocked-over tree. I think that it was a recommendation from the insurance company. The guy that spearheaded the project was just awesome to work with and real flexible, and then those guys showed up, did a good job, and got in and out. Everything he told us on the front end they were going to do, they knocked out of the park. They deserve an A.”
“They've done two different jobs for me. They did some tree fertilization and some tree trimming. The guys that came out to do the work just did a real good job. If I asked them to do something, they didn't give me any hassle about it. They wanted to please and do what I asked them to do, so it was a real good experience. I've just known about them. I'd rate them as an A+.”
“I've used them for removing trees and shrubbery and also trimming trees. They just do a good job, and they're very personable people. I enjoy having them here to do the work, and they clean up well when they're done. I like everything about what they do. I've used them three times. I'd give them an A+.”
“We've used them for years. They do deep root treatments and leaf disease treatments, and they've trimmed back trees for us. They seem to know exactly what they're doing, and I like all the people that are there. Everybody that's come out here has been very professional and helpful. We've been using them for probably about 20 years.”
“They did some fertilization for the shrubs, trees, ornamental trees, and stuff like that. I started using them years ago when we lived in Alpharetta. We live in Roswell now, but back then, I'd called them to do some tree removal, and it led to them talking to me about fertilization. They do good work. I get results in my yard, and I see it. It's A work.”
“They've done some great work for me. They've fertilized my trees two years in a row, so they've done good stuff. I like it. I've been using them about three years. They're here when they say they're going to be here, and I have no complaints. They did what they said they were going to do. They're an A.”
“An arborist analyzed the health of the tree, and I decided to have the tree roots fertilized. I liked the arborist.”
“They treat a tree and shrubs that I have. My sister had used them before. They call beforehand to say that they're going to be here, and they're always here when they say they will be.”
“They fertilized our magnolia tree and also did some pruning in our backyard. They just showed up when they said they would, and their work was very good. I'd give them an A.”
“They were fertilizing trees and shrubs, and there was certainly nothing to dislike. On the positive side, I would say they came out, did a quick look around, and had a comprehensive conversation with me about it, so from that perspective, I think they were pretty good. They knew what we had on the property and what needed to be addressed, so as arborists they were pretty knowledgeable and helpful. It's the second time we've used them in two years. I'd go ahead and say they're an A.”
“I use Davey Tree, and it's been great. I've been using them to fertilize, debug, and deep root fertilize my trees. They do tree planting, they've done tree trimming for me, and they've done a great job. I would grade them an A.”
“They have a lot of expertise, they seem to know trees and their business well, and they're very reliable. They've done lots of different things. They regularly do some spraying in our yard to kind of help keep some of our trees and shrubs alive and growing, and then they've pruned trees down for us. We've used them for a number of years.”
“They've done some tree trimming work as well as deep root fertilization. They just seem to be a very professional organization—very experienced and easy to work with. They're a big national organization company, so I've just recognized the name for decades. I give them an A.”
“They fertilized the trees. They always do a great job, and we really appreciate it. We've used Davey Tree for years. They're customer focused and very careful about making sure that they don't damage the property with their big trucks and all that good stuff. They get an A on everything.”
“They have deep fed the roots on one of my trees. They did some deep feeding on a maple tree in my backyard. They show up on time, and they've been doing the deep root things for years now.”
“They were just trimming trees and getting them off the house and garage. The reason I chose them over a different company is because of the man that came out—I just connected with him, and he was real friendly and all. I'd rate them as an A.”
“We use Davey Tree. I would give Joel an A because he's the only person I've worked with there at the tree company. He came out and removed a few trees, he and his men, and they did a really nice job.”
“They've been taking care of my shrubbery, trees, and things like that for me for quite a number of years, and I think they've done a good job. I'm satisfied with them. I'm 90 years old, and I've been living in the South here for about 30 years, but before that, I lived in New Jersey, and I first employed Davey Tree in New Jersey. I would give them an A.”
“They trimmed and cut down a few trees. We chose them because they do less invasive work as far as not using spikes on their shoes, and we felt comfortable with that because they trim the trees versus just chopping them off. It was our first time using them.”
“I always have a positive experience with this company. They trimmed all my dogwoods off the wires, and then I had this shrubbery that had grown up to be huge trees, and they cut all those down. They just do good work, so I've never had a problem with them. I've been using them about three years.”
“They saved my Leyland cypress trees from having to be cut down. They're just very professional and very knowledgeable. This is the first time I used them. They get an A because they were great.”
“They were cutting down some trees. They were very efficient, did a very nice job, and cleaned up after themselves. They were very good. I've used them in the past.”
“They've done several things over the years. They've cut down trees, pruned trees, and pruned bushes. I like the quality of the personnel and the equipment they use, and they're very careful about making sure it's done safely and correctly without damage. They follow up with a good arborist who knows what he's talking about, so I have good experiences with them.”
“They were removing a couple of trees and trimming a tree. I guess they did a good job—they didn't take anything down that they weren't supposed to, and they were also consistent with the price that they quoted. They'd get an A.”
“Davey Tree removed and trimmed some trees, and they took care of a couple of injections for some trees that were having problems. I loved the arborist who came out and talked with us; he was fabulous and very knowledgeable, and he helped us make decisions about which trees could be saved and which could not. He was absolutely wonderful. I'd rate them as an A+.”
