HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“Davey is awesome. They were great. They're very professional; they're very quick to come out. We recently moved and we used them at our new house, and I recommend them to other families. I'm just really impressed with how quick they are and they do a good job. I would say A+. I wasn't here for their last job but everything looked great.”

“It was great. They trimmed trees and raised the canopy on one of them. The guy that came to the house to review it with me seemed to know a lot about what he was doing. The guys that came and did the work did a real good job. They came a week earlier than what I thought they would, which was fine. They stayed late. They had a piece of equipment that malfunctioned while they were here and they fixed it and stayed until they finished the job. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“Davey is excellent. I've use them a couple of times.”

“It was great.”

“They did a tree stump for me. They did a good job, and they well communicated. I'd give them an A. I was impressed that the person that came was an arborist.”

“I felt like the guys that were out here knew what they were doing. The main thing is they cleaned up after themselves. They don't leave a lot of tree trimmings or anything around. They cleaned up everything. The grade I'd give them is A+. I have already recommended them.”

“I've used them for quite a few years now. They're reliable and they do a good job. I'd give them A+.”

“They removed a tree that fell on a car. I'd give them A+ for the experience.”

“They're professional and good quality. Pretty thorough; they went from the process from the beginning to the end. I was pretty happy with them. Very happy. I'd give them an A+.”

“I think he came and told me what he was gonna do and did it. And had some good insight, that's about it. I would grade them an A.”

“I've had a positive experience.”

“They've worked for us for several years and everything has always gone well. I would give them an A.”

“They're on time, in budget; they did what they said they would. They did tree trimming for me. I'd give them an A.”

“They've been taking care of my trees for a long time, and I'm fine with it. They've been doing my trees for eight or ten years; there's nothing I don't like about them. I'd give them an A. I would recommend them.”

“They've always done a good job for us. Recently, they were trimming trees. We've been using them since we moved here four years ago, and we will continue to use them. They're an A+.”

“I'd give Davey Tree an A+. The quality of work is great. The sales service, the process—it's all good.”

“They trim, feed, and look after the trees. I've used them for about ten years. I'd grade them as an A+.”

“We had some sick trees that they came and sprayed. I like that they sent me a full schedule so I could see what time they would come and what time they'd go. I'll give them an A.”

“Davey Tree does my two magnolia trees in the front yard and my two lilac trees in the backyard. I'd give them an A. I use them every year.”

“They uprooted my tree and grinded down the stumps. Overall, I'd say it's an A+. We had some weather conditions, so they had to push it out a couple of times, but it wasn't their fault.”

“My overall experience has been A+.”

“Davey Tree is A+.”

“It was a positive experience.”

“I would give Davey Tree an A.”

“I had a positive experience with Davey Tree.”

“They trimmed three large trees. They are an A—A's across the board.”

“They take care of my large trees and occasionally do bushes. I'd say they're an A-.”

“They just removed branches and some Crepe Myrtles for us, so it was just some general clean up. I'd grade the overall experience an A. There were two different jobs.”

“It was great.”

“I would say they're an A-.”

“They just trimmed some trees in my yard. I'd grade them as an A.”

“I just liked the job they did, and things look good. They've been here before, too, so I'm a repeat customer, which says more than anything else. They did trimming and feeding. I alternate years, so one year is feeding while the other year is trimming. They're just professional. They're what you would expect a good business would be. I'd give them an A.”

“They were knowledgeable, quick, efficient, and clean. They removed a great big tree for me in the backyard. Their customer service was all great. They're an A.”

“It was excellent service. I liked their professionalism, the quality of the work they did, and the safety—they had hardhats and safety glasses. They took down two big trees, and they're going to replace them back up. I would have done it myself, but I didn't feel comfortable. The customer service was excellent, and I'd give them an A.”

“They pretty much did what they said they were going to do and did a good job at it—they cut back some trees for me. They told us what they were going to do, did it, and everything seems to be good. It's what you expect of people. I was impressed with them, and I would use them again. They were recommended by my landscaper. I'd rate them an A.”

“Six months ago, they cut the plants that were overhanging the house. One person came over, and he sounded very amicable and professional, so I asked them to come do the work for me. They were an excellent service. I'd recommend the team that came here because they were very professional. I would grade them an A.”

“Davey Tree did a good job. They were prompt, professional, and clean in their work. They cut a tree down, ground the stump, and then also did a few minor things like taking out a dead limb and some lightbulb replacement. Brian also did a good job as far as getting the quote to me quickly and efficiently. Once I approved the estimate, they were here within a couple of days. I went with them because they were doing some work for my neighbor and I thought I liked the way they were handling a couple situations. They did A+ work.”

“Their service is great. They come out on time, do really great work, and clean up. They trimmed the trees in the front and back of the house last December.”

“They're great.”

“They tend to be efficient and on time. They take care of what they say they're going to do, and they meet my expectations. The only thing they've done is trim two big live oaks in my front yard, but they keep me aware of anything going wrong with it and anything I can do to improve the health of the tree. They call back and confirm their appointment to make you aware if they're going to be there a day ahead of time. That's good because it also serves as a reminder that they're still coming. I'd been using a different company, and they were not meeting my expectations. They said they'd get there in a month or two—they weren't really pinpointing anything, so I went searching for someone else. I would say they're an A—good work, no complaints.”

“I like the service and everything they do. They've been working with me for ten to fifteen years. If I have tree problems, I call Davey. Their customer service is prompt and good, and I'd rate them A.”

“Davey Tree trimmed some trees for me. They're a very professional company, and they did a very good job. They were very knowledgeable about the trees and what needed to be done to them. I was asking them about diseases that might occur, and they knew all about it. I heard about them through Best Pick Reports. I looked at all the tree services in there and picked them out of the group. I'd give them an A.”

“They did what they said they were going to do and seemed pretty professional. I have a live oak tree. They trimmed it up and put a couple of cables up in it. They just seemed to be pretty thorough, and that's what I expected, so I liked it. They're an A.”

“I was happy that they did the job and did it quickly. They worked on my trees, and their customer service was just what was needed. I chose them because they were the only ones that would come out at that time. They get an A.”

“They trimmed some trees that were really close to the house, got everything done, and cleaned up. I liked the gentleman who came out ahead of time to give us an estimate and walk around. He was very thorough and knowledgeable. A gentleman who does a lot of yard work in our neighborhood recommended that we call them, and I had used Davey Tree previously when we lived in Lexington, Kentucky, so I knew their reputation. I'd rate them an A.”

“I'd give them an A.”

“They were totally self-sufficient and efficient. They got it done without me around or having to answer any questions. They were trimming trees for us—pruning them back. I'd grade them A.”

“They did what they were supposed to do, trimmed some trees for me, and cleaned up. But they don't just come out, trim the trees, and stack them up in front of your house. They shred it on the spot and do exactly what needs to be done. They fed it to the shredder, and then everything was gone—there was no sign of anything having been done. They were interested in doing what they were paid to do. They do a good job, and they call to make sure everything is satisfactory after they're finished. They've been in business for a hundred-some-odd years. How many tree companies do you know that've been in business for a hundred years? They get an A from me. I'll have them back when we need more pruning done.”

“They did a good job. They did what they were supposed to do, and I'm happy with them. I'd give them an A.”

“They were prompt, showed up as promised, and did a good job with the work. They removed a tree for me. Their customer service was very professional. Before this, I had used them previously at another residence. I'd grade them an A.”

“They did the job as promised and on time. They trimmed a large tree for us. I chose them because I got a recommendation from a neighbor. They get an A.”

“Davey Tree did a great job. I'd give them an A.”

“They got the job done, and it was kind of fascinating to watch them. They took two trees down, and they trimmed some limbs. The administrator came out to the house and checked up on things often. They're right across the street from me in a warehouse complex, and I had walked my dog by there several times. I just finally felt like, you know what? I need to do tree work, so why not go here? They're an A company.”

“I liked their speed and that they cleaned up after themselves. I didn't have any mess left over. They were cutting down a tree. We'd had a tree fall down between our houses, and my neighborhood had contacted them. That was a pretty good reference for me, so I used them too. I'd give them an A.”

“They did a pretty good job. They know how to prune trees, and that may sound like an overly simplistic statement, but a lot of tree people don't know how to do that. They butcher trees. I didn't have any problems with their customer service. I'd rate them an A-.”

“Davey Tree did excellent work and was very professional. They took out a tree in the front yard, and then they trimmed off some limbs that were getting too low over the roof. They were a very personable, happy crew, and the service guy was very attentive and customer oriented. They were very efficient and well trained. I chose them because I wanted someone dependable; I was impressed with the kind of company they were and that they had been in business for a long time. They were great—A+.”

“Davey Tree's service was outstanding. I liked the way they cut the trees, their safety procedures, and their cleanup. They trimmed one of our huge trees in the back. The gentlemen were very polite and very nice. I'd give their work an A grade.”

“Davey Tree is wonderful. They've cut down two trees for me, and they're always very reliable. I would give them an A.”

“The Davey Tree Expert Company was awesome. They did excellent work, and I have no complaints. I'd give them an A.”

“We call Davey Tree every time we need them. They give good service. They come and do what we ask them to do. They do excellent work—I have no complaints. I would give them an A.”

“Davey Tree does excellent work. They did a good job trimming some of my trees. I chose them because of a recommendation. They deserve an A because I have no complaints.”

“They were great. They left the yard very clean. They came in and did the quote a couple of weeks beforehand, and then they came back and did everything that they were supposed to do. They left the yard cleaner than it was when they got here, so I was very satisfied with them. I'd rate them as an A.”

“They did a tree service some time ago. There were no problems; it went perfect. I was very pleased. They get an A.”

“I'm very pleased with their work. I thought they were wonderful. I liked everything about them. I have a neighbor who has used them for a long time, which is how I found out about them—word of mouth. I'd give them an A grade.”

“We had one tree removed. They were very efficient, and they didn't make a mess when they removed the tree for us. Davey Tree is an A+ company.”

“They are the only people I will let trim my trees. I've been using them for ten or more years. I was referred to them, and I just kept using them. They seem to do well, and they do everything I need to have done for my trees. I'd give them an A.”

“We've used Davey for several years. They always do a good job. They get out here and do what they said they were going to do. They do different things—tree trimming at times and spraying on our trees. I'd give them an A rating because we've had no complaints.”

“We've had them out a couple of times, and they've always been good. They did a good job with the trees, and they cleaned up after trimming them. We didn't have any issues with too much being trimmed or anything like that. When they were done, aesthetically, it looked good. I'd grade them an A.”

“They were very thorough and efficient, and we appreciated it. There's nothing they could improve on in the future—they were good. They trimmed two very large trees in our yard. We chose them because we'd used them in the past. They get an A- rating.”

“They seemed to do their job fine, and I was satisfied with them. I'd give them an A-.”

“I love Davey Tree's service. We have a massive oak tree in the front of our yard, and some of the branches were over the roof and the garage. They came out and took all the low branches out, cleaned it all up, and took the branches off our property. The guy was really helpful. He called me right when they got there and right when they left so I knew they were done, and when I got home, everything was great. I'd give them an A+.”

“I continually use Davey, and they always do a good job. This last time, they fertilized the trees and treated them with pesticide to get the spiders out. Whenever I've needed anything done with my trees, I've called them. They deserve an A+.”

“I've used Davey Tree for so long. They come when they say they're going to, they clean up everything, and I think their professional advice has been good. They do excellent work.”

“I used Davey Tree for my tree service. I had somebody here before them who was an arborist like he was, and I was not happy with those people. Now these people, Davey, came in and I liked them. What I liked best is that they cleaned up after themselves. They trim my trees. I would give them an A+ grade.”

“Davey Tree trimmed our trees. The quality of the work that was done was great, excellent. I would for sure use the company again. I think I've used them three times. What stands out about the company is their friendly service. I would give them an A+.”

“Davey Tree Company was able to take care of my needs. They were fast workers and efficient. They were quick to schedule. They took down a tree, and their cleanup was excellent. I would give them an A+.”

“They were awesome. I would recommend them several times. They were back out in November to do some more trimming. I was very pleased with their service. The limbs were mulched. They were recommended by a friend who had used them before. The work went smoothly each time. I would give Davey Tree Dallas an A+. I absolutely would use them again whenever I need them.”

“They did some trimming of several trees and removed a tree. They took care of everything. I probably would use the company again. If a friend were to use Davey Tree, I think they would be able to communicate well with them, which was the problem we had with another company. They did what they said they'd do. I didn't have any difficulties at all with Davey Tree. We'd give them an A+.”

“They were just so nice. They knew what they were doing, and they did it quickly. It was very professional. I had two trees that got hit by a storm. The quality of the work was excellent. The workers that came out were very nice and helpful. They cleaned up the trees after everything. If I had the need, I would use the company again. We got the name from a friend, and I even recommended them to other friends. I would give them an A+.”

“I give them an excellent review. I think they're A+ all the way down the line. I'd recommend them, and I think they're great.”

“I hired Davey Tree Expert Company to do the work. I was satisfied with them. They did good. They trimmed some trees back and removed one from the backyard. They cleaned up after themselves. They were very professional. They get an A in everything. They were outstanding.”

“Davey Tree showed up when they were supposed to, cleaned up, and they did a really good job. They removed trees and fertilized. That was my first time using them. I would contact this company in the future. The cleanup was perfect. I would give them an A.”

“They are a great company, and they do wonderful work. They've been here several times. Most recently, they did pruning. I'd give them an A.”

“Davey Tree trimmed my trees. I wasn't here, but when I came home, the trees looked great. They really did a good job cleaning up, too. I have used the company before. They do a great job—top notch. I think they did a really good job on my trees. I would rate the company as an A.”

“They were great. They did tree trimming and periodic pest control. I would give them an A, perfect.”

“They did some significant trimming on our trees and also fertilization. It was good. They cleaned up all the leaves. It was nice and clean when they left, and they had first-class equipment to do it with. I would recommend them to someone else. We've continued to use them. They were an A.”

“They trimmed my live oak in the front. They really raised the crown, which needed to be done. They need to be low and after a windstorm here, my red buds wouldn't hatch so they bolted it together and took care of it—so far, so good. I've got to get them to come back out for more work. I was very happy with them. I would give them an A+.”

“They just did a good job and were timely. They replaced a tree for me. They finished in a timely manner and cleaned up after themselves. I liked that they did what they said they were going to do. I thought their customer service was good. I would feel comfortable using them again. I would give them an A+.”

“I had some work done by them. It was very positive. They removed fallen trees from my back yard. It was over a building, so they removed it without damaging the building and did a good job. The gentlemen were very qualified. No problems with the crew. They cleaned up well after themselves and got everything raked up, and everything went in the shredder—not a problem. I would absolutely recommend them. I'd give them the top grade, A+.”

“Davey Tree did work for us in the spring. My overall experience was very positive. They told me they were going to show up on a particular day, and they did. They told me they were going to do the work and when I got home, it was done. It was great. They trimmed up probably 20 trees on the property, and they hauled away a bunch of branches and stuff that I had cut off. We found them in Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A+.”

“They removed three large trees in the backyard. Two of them were diseased, and the other one was just a mess, so we had to take them out. It was very positive. They're an A.”

“They did very good. That was the first time that I used them. We chose them because of a referral. They just trimmed the limbs on a big tree. They did a real good job cleaning up. I would give them an A+.”

“I thought they did a fine job. They came out to look at my trees to determine what they might need, and then they also fed the trees. That was the first time that I used them, and they were recommended to me by somebody who used them. I was happy with the work they did. The trees weren't doing badly before. It was just that we're on limited watering here, but I also wanted them to find out why one of the branches had died. They explained that to me, and I was happy with that. They were good. I would give them an A+.”

“They were on time, did quick work, good cleanup—the whole nine yards. They took out a dead tree. I applauded the time frame in which the work was finished. I called three vendors, and the gentleman with Davey was the first one to call me back, so that's one of the main reasons I went with them. I live in a townhome community, and I got the first reference for him from the manager of the association. She gave him a glowing report, so I can just add to her take on the deal. They are easy to work with. He gets an A+.”

“Davey Tree was thorough and continued a dialogue with me while they were out there working. I asked some questions, and I was pleased. The customer service was good. They trimmed quite a few trees. I've got a lot of trees on my property, and they did a good bit of work. The trees are looking good. They cleaned up well after they were done. I'd give them an A+.”

“The Davey Tree Expert Company did fine. It was limited work, but they did a good job trimming trees. This was not the first time using them. I would give them an A+ grade.”

“They cut down a tree for me. The quality of the work was fine. The arborist was good. They provide good, efficient work. Customer service was fine. That was my first occasion using the company. They cleaned it up, and it was fine. I would use the company again. It was A+.”

“Davey Tree Dallas took care of my tree issue. I think they did exactly what they said they would do. It was mainly to remove one tree and trim another by the power line. Cleanup was fine. I would give them an A+ grade.”

“I thought the work they did for me was good. They did what they were supposed to do and did a good job. The technicians were good. They were friendly. I've used them before, many times. I would use this company again. I would give them an A+.”

“I use them all the time. Tree trimming is a pretty specific job, but they do a good job of it. The quality of work is fine. They do a good job at cutting trees. The technicians and customer service was fine. I would use them again. I would give Davey an A+ grade.”
