“I've been dealing with Davey for the past couple of months. They are pretty good, and I haven't had any complaints with them. I would grade the overall experience with an A. I recommend them to my neighbors all the time. They are very easy to work with. It's always a pleasure working with Davey. They are always punctual, respectful and they clean up well.”

“I liked that they came in, they took the tree down, they cleaned up every swig and they left. They left nothing but the stump, and that's fine. I would grade the overall experience with an A+. I have nothing bad to say about them. I won't call anybody else. They've done work for me before, and I wouldn't have called anybody else.”

Review by

“They did some treatment for our tree. They were very responsive. They were fine. I would grade my overall experience as B+. I gave them a B+ because I did not have a ‘throw me on the floor’ impression of them. They did great.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“They have treated a lot for me. They fertilized and they poked down in the ground. They seem to do a good job. Before, the people didn’t even bother with our backyard, even though we were paying them. I think an A would be for the overall experience with them.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“They were pruning back some trees. There were four or five trees that needed some limbs cut off. Everything looks great. They were very professional and had a good price. There is really nothing negative that I can say. I’d give them an A for my experience with them.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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+.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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?’”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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+.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“They  did some fertilization work for us. I think they've been around a long time and they have a great reputation. They have always done great excellent work. They’re very knowledgeable with the trees, so I don’t trust anybody else with my trees except them. I would give them A+ for the overall experience.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“Every  spring they come through and they trim up trees. They've done a couple of trees for us. They knocked down a tree that’s probably 18 inches in diameter. They did a very good, very careful job. It was against one of our buildings so it was a tremendous task, a tremendous feat on their part. I’d give them A+ without a doubt. They’re a great company.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“So far, I’ve had a good experience. Before, I had a lawn service that was cutting the grass, trimming the shrubbery, and fertilizing—the whole nine yards. I was not satisfied with the work. I thought the people that came out, their mechanics, cut the grass and they were more concerned about that than the health of the grass. So, I separated the fertilization away from them and gave it to Davey. I did that earlier in the year, and so far, the grass looks much healthier today. The maintenance hasn’t changed. I left the maintenance with the same people in terms of cutting, clipping, and blowing the yard off. Now, for the health of the grass, I’m happier with Davey doing it than the lawn service. I’ve had them for a short period of time, so I’d give them a B+ right now. I think their quality of work is good. I’ve talked to them about the yard, and the guy that came out to sell me on using them seemed to be very knowledgeable. He dispelled some thoughts I had about what was wrong with the grass, and so far he’s been right. All I can say is, so far so good. I have no complaints. They fertilize and treat the grass, and they don’t bother to tell me when. They started trying to do that, and I told them I didn’t care when they came as long as they did it. The grass looks better.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“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.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“They do our monthly yard and lawn service. They always do our tree service, as well. They’re knowledgeable and personable. I like both of those things and they do what they say they’re going to do. The only thing I would say that I would recommend, they should observe things and make suggestions before it gets to a point that there’s no turning back. I had a tree that was dying and they didn’t bring it to my attention. The guy was not here to do the trees, but it would have been nice to know.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“They’ve done everything on my property for almost 2 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.”

Review by
09/30/2016

“I’ve used them for years. They've done tree work and fertilizing. I keep using them because they’re very reliable and they have an arborist that will come out and give me a free estimate. I’d give them an A because they are little bit pricey, but they are reliable, so I keep using them. If price were not considered, I’d give them A+. Price is the only thing I could downgrade them on.”

“I use Davey Tree Company for the lawn service. I'd give them an A. They have very good customer service also and if they're any problems they're very responsive. I chose them from Home Reports. I use it a lot.”

Review by

“We use Davey Tree. I would give Joel an A only 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.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“We did some tree service, some fertilizing, and some treatment of fungicide. They were very knowledgeable about the treatment and it was Joel who was the person that we dealt with. I would give him an A.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They treat a tree that I have and shrubs. My sister had used them before. They're always there - they call beforehand to say that they're going to be there and they're always there when they say they are.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They did some fertilization for the shrubs, trees, ornamental trees and stuff like that. I started using them years ago. They do good work. I see it in my yard and the results I get. It's an A company.”

Review by

“They saved my leyland cypress trees from having to cut them all down. They're just very professional and very knowledgeable. This is the first time I used them. I would give them an A, they were great.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“I love Davey Tree. Very responsible and knowledgeable. They fertilize our trees and then advise us about what branches to cut. We've been using us on and off for a decade. I'd give them a solid A.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They fertilized grass, trees, shrubbery. They have very fine personnel and we enjoyed them. We've used them for many years. I would say a B because we had some crab grass that we can't get rid of.”

Review by

“They may 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.”

Review by

“They fertilized our magnolia tree and they also did some pruning in our backyard. They showed up when they said they would and their work was very good. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They were taking down a large, very tall dead spring tree. It was in a bad area where they had to be very careful about landscaping and they did an excellent job. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by

“They were cutting down some trees. They were very efficient and they did a very nice job and they cleaned up after themselves. They were very good. I've used them in the past.”

Review by

“They have done some tree trimming work as well as deep root fertilization. They seem to be a very professional organization, very experienced, easy to work with. They're a big national organization company so I've recognized the name for decades. I give them an A.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They trimmed the trees 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. They trim the trees versus just like chopping them off. It was our first time using them.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They were removing a couple of trees and trimming a tree. They did a good job, didn't take anything down they weren't supposed to and they also were consistent with the price that they quoted. They were in Best Pick Reports. I would give them an A.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“It's usually positive, but not this time—they didn't do enough. I was out of town, and they came. I didn't see them, and when I came back, I looked around and they hadn't done enough. They were to do some pruning and they didn't do enough.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They've been taking care of my shrubbery and my 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 first employed Davey Tree in New Jersey. I would give them an A.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“It was very positive. They did great work. They cleaned up, they got the trees off the house without anymore damage than the tree already caused. I loved everything about them, very professional, very receptive, nice, friendly. This is the first time I used them and I'm definitely going to try to get them to come back out to cut down another tree. I'd give them 2 A's.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They took off a very difficult limb and had to use a crane to take it off. Their arborist, salesman, he was excellent to work with. It was a difficult thing because it was a neighbor involved that wasn't very pleasant and he worked really well to get the whole thing set up. It was not easy. And then the crew that came out just did an excellent job. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They've done several things over the years. They've cut down trees, pruned trees, pruned bushes, that's mainly what they've done. 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. And they follow up with a good arborist that knows who he's talking about so I have good experience with them.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They were fertilizing trees and shrubs. They came out and did a quick look around and had a comprehensive conversation about it. From that perspective I think they were pretty good. They knew what we had on the property and what needed to be addressed. They were pretty knowledgeable and helpful. It's the second time we've used them in 2 years. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They do fertilizing and they do maintenance on my trees and shrubs and on my grass. They do all of the pesticides, insecticides, fertilizers, trouble shooting, anything like that that I need. I like that they are very responsive. If I have a problem or I need them they respond very quickly and take care of it whatever it is. I like that a lot. I think this is my second or third year using them. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“I've been with that company for over a decade. I like Davey. I think they're a very reliable company. They have some good people working there that have great knowledge of trees. I mean they're arborists so I trust them when it comes to that and generally when you have an issue they'll get back to you and see what they can do to take care of it. They fertilize every year, all my trees, my bushes, shrubs, they aerate the lawn, they treat the lawn with fertilizer. I would give them an A-.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They came out and did a great job for us. There's nothing I dislike about them, I think they came out and gave a good estimate, they had an experienced crew out here and as well they also sent one of their senior guys out to make sure things got kicked off properly. I was out there the other day and you couldn't tell they were here except for the fact those trees probably look a lot better. I actually asked my neighbor who she used and she recommended them. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They removed some trees, trimmed some trees, and took care of a couple of injections for some trees that were having some problems. I loved Joel the arborist who came out and talked with us. He was fabulous, very knowledgeable and helped us make decisions about which trees could be saved and which could not be saved. He was absolutely wonderful we really thought he was fabulous. Our daughter had a problem with a tree in her yard and her neighbor recommended Davey Trees for her yard. After she had used them we had them come look at ours. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“We had several big oak trees that had damage. They were leaking sap and another one had something called apple gall. They were telling us what they thought how we should treat the trees. They suggested fertilizer and then one of the trees was a split trunk and they suggest cabling it to pop but they didn't overwhelm us by telling us to cut it down or anything. They showed up when they said they would and were real professional. They might have been a little on the pricey side so I would give them an A- just because of the cost. The work itself was an A.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They did half of what I asked and they did that part very very well. The part that they didn't do they didn't do. When they removed the trees they were to leave the grinds here, all of the wood chips - they didn't. I did reach out to them and I had the arborist come back out and we said they said there was something about the driveway that they couldn't do it the first time, we talked about the driveway there was no issue he said he would notify the trucks and then they would subsequently bring some wood chips. They never have come.”

“I've been dealing with the company almost 50 years so I think I'm happy with them. They told me they didn't go in that particular area I told them to call the Davey Tree in California I've dealt with for many many years and they called Davey Tree in California and contacted those people. They talked to them and they call me right back and they said how about tomorrow. So I think I got pretty good service. In Atlanta I had a retention pond that had grown up and I needed it cleaned out. They came and cut all the trees and pulled all the brush out and cleaned up and they did it in like 8 hours. Then I had them come back again. I had a tree that fell and one of the limbs split off of it and they cleaned all that up and cut the tree down to the ground so I would have a stump very close to the ground and took care of that. But Davey Tree has done work for me in apartment complexes for many years in California. I had a good working relationship with them. They came to me at one time and one of the chippers was broken. They couldn't get a welder so I took my truck over and let them use my welder and they welded their equipment. After that, a number of times I allowed them to use my equipment. I wouldn't do the welding because I didn't want the liability but I allowed them to use my truck and do the welding. So I've had a good relationship with them not only with the residential division but also with the commercial division. So I use them wherever I go. I've used them in Georgia, I've used them in Tampa, Fl, and I used them in California so I've been very satisfied with the company. I'd give them an A+.”

“They do tree service but they also do lawn service like fertilizer and weed control and those sorts of things. The yard looks good and they've done a fair amount of tree work for us and they always are on time, clean up. Chris Hime is the guy that we talk to the most and he's very service oriented so that's good too. We've used them for years.”

Review by
11/12/2015

“They've done 2 different jobs for me. They did some tree fertilization and some tree trimming. The guys that came out to do the work - they 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, do what I asked them to do so it was a real good experience. I'd give them A+.”

Review by

“They have a lot of expertise, they seem to know their business well and trees, 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.”

Review by

“We've used them for years. They do deep root treatments, they do leaf disease treatments, and they have 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 20 years.”

“They had come and sawed down our knocked over tree. The guy that kind of spear headed the project he was just awesome to work with, real flexible. Those guys showed up, did a good job, in and out, everything he told us on the front in they were going to do they knocked it out of the park. I'd give them an A.”

“I've used them in removing trees and also shrubbery, 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 3 times. I'd give them an A+.”

“I always have a positive experience with this company. They come in and they trimmed all my dogwoods off my wires. I had this shrubbery that had grown up to be huge trees and they cut all those down. They just do good work, I've never had a problem with them. I've been using them about 3 years.”

“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. I’d give them an A on everything.”

“They did some great work for me. They fertilized my trees, they've done it 2 years in a row so they've done good stuff. I like it. They came when they said they were going to be here and I have no complaints. They did what they said they were going to do. I would give them an A.”

“In the past they've taken trees away, removed them, and then they were for a short time doing treatment on the trees in winter. We changed companies because the company we're using now is less expensive for tree removal. We were happy it's just that they were more expensive.”

“An arborist analyzed the health of the tree and I decided to have the tree roots fertilized. I liked the arborist.”
