“They did good work.”

Review by

“Very good experience. They trimmed the tops of the trees and some of the branches that were affecting the solar panels. It went very well. I would grade the overall experience with an A+.”

“Everything went according to the way it was planned, and they did a good job. I had part of a Maple tree removed and had it trimmed up. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“They removed a tree for me. I liked that they did the job well. Nothing stood out, they did a good job. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“They did insecticide treatment for me. I've used them before; they're very professional, and their rates are very competitive. It's a good company, and they've got local people. I would grade the overall experience with an A+. I do recommend them, and I recommend them to people all the time.”

Review by

“They have done tree spikes for us. We had talked to them about some crabgrass issues that we had, and they gave us an estimate on it, but I don't think they ever did any work for its. They did what we asked them to. They gave us a quote on it. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by
02/14/2018

“They did general maintenance for shrubs and bushes. I used them for about ten years. One of their employees came to spray—they used the wrong spray, and it left a white residue, like a sticky white residue on one of our shrubs that was pretty prominent along our driveway, and they basically couldn't get it off for the rest of the season. So, we're just disappointed. Obviously, a mistake, but we paid them good money—didn't expect that. They certainly tried to handle it, but we felt after that incident, we should kind of look around and see if there was somebody else who would maybe do a better job. They tried. Just general disappointment. They tried to fix it and couldn't, because the person who sprayed made a big mistake. Maybe that was harsh, but I just didn't expect it. I'd give them a C. I haven't found anyone to replace them yet. We'd go back to them, but it was more just, they got put in the penalty box. Maybe in a couple of years, but not right now would I recommend them. If somebody asks, they did good work, but they had—they just had some issues. I guess there was one other issue that bothered my wife, too. One of the things they sprayed, killed something. Customer service replaced it. They were really nice, and they put new bushes to replace it; they acknowledged the mistake. They had made some mistakes before. I know what happened. They come out, and they're supposed to diagnose it, and it got aphids, and the aphids killed the bush, and they couldn't restore the bush, and they acknowledged they should've caught the aphids, if they were paying attention—when the guy came out—rather than just spraying and heading out.”

“Nothing in particular that I liked about them; they came and got the job done. They did a tree removal job for me. I would grade the overall experience with an A. They left a lot of—I don't know how true this is or not—but I had another tree removed shortly after that, and the person who came out said that it was not good that they left so much sawdust from chopping up a very, very large tree that had fallen on my house. He said that the sawdust would kill my grass. But other than that, I don't have any complaints. Expertise—they did very, very dangerous work. Recommendation—because of the cost.”

“I liked that they send out an arborist, and they walk around your property. That was nice. We had some Leyland cypresses that were experiencing some bad issues and turning brown; they came out and helped to solve that issue—some treatment. I would grade the overall experience with an A-.”

Review by
02/12/2018

“I've used them for years. I liked that they always show up when they're supposed to, and they do a very nice job. And when I call, they returned the calls right back to me when I had questions. I would grade the overall experience with an A+. I've never had any problem with them.”

Review by

“Very good. Nothing that I liked or disliked about them. They removed a tree and trimmed branches for me. I would grade the overall experience with an A+.”

Review by

“We had them almost two years ago. My only complaint was they are very expensive, compared to other companies we have used. They were very easy to work with. They did a thorough job, and they were fine. I would grade the overall experience with a B.”

Review by
02/12/2018

“They do great quality work. I would like little more communication from them, like when they are going to come out. I have a yearly contract, so a little bit more communication would be better. I would grade the overall experience with a B. Cleanliness—when they put the seeds down, they put it all over my driveway, so I had grass growing everywhere.”

Review by
02/12/2018

“They cut a tree down in my backyard. They knew what they were doing, but they were slow getting from one phase to the other. And at one point, it seemed that they forgot to follow up in doing one thing. So, they are tree experts, but they are not as responsive as I would have preferred. I would grade the overall experience with a B.”

Review by
02/12/2018

“They've been doing my yard for 20 years. I liked that they keep the same person for a pretty long time, so you get to know your person. I would grade the overall experience with a B+. Because one year, we had a little hitch where my yard looked like trash, and I had to pitch a fit. Quality of work—I've had to call them back and say, ‘That's not done right. Come on back.’ But they always address everything. So, it's just a matter of paying attention to what they're doing. Customer service—they always accommodate me when I call them back, when something is not right. I have recommended them. I've given them lots of business.”

Review by
02/12/2018

“Overall, there were some problems, but we had gotten them straightened out. The issues were that they had sprayed one pine tree that had some bugs that had bored into the base of the tree, and they sprayed the one tree and not the others. I didn't understand that because they could have migrated, or the same thing could have happened to the other pine trees, as well. And it took a while before they got sprayed; it was a time lapse. I think we got that straightened out. I'm not sure if my wife is willing to renew any more future contracts with them. I would grade the overall experience with a C. Customer service—it was very hard to get in contact with Davey Tree, and for them to get back with us.”
