“They did a great job. They were pretty clean. They cleaned up all the tree mess and did a good job trimming down the leaves, and the price was good. I would give them an A.”

Review by

“They do my yard work. No special services other than that. The individual that I have coming to my house is very pleasant and helpful. A+ for what they do for us.”

Review by

“The Davey Tree Expert Company did a good job. They pruned everything up and made it look clean just before we moved out. I would give them an A.”

Review by

Review by

“They do stuff for us year-round. They just do a good job. I would grade them an A.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“They came over and consulted ahead of time and looked around the property. There was a fallen tree that was huge, and they worked with me to decide we could either move this stuff off the lot, or if they cut it all down, it'll kind of lay, and then we were going to save a lot of money. So, they gave me options. They looked at other trees on the lot to see if there seemed to be any sort of indication of a bigger problem with other trees. They talked about the equipment they were going to bring in and the problems it might cause with the driveway, because it's really heavy and they needed to get back into the backside of the house. As it was, they didn't damage the driveway. They shored up and they helped with getting the chip as much as they could into an area I asked them to do a picnic area. I wanted all the wood chips. They directed the best they could up there, so it was pretty impressive. They came in, they had safety lines in the tall tree. I did have them take down two trees in addition to removing this one gigantic tree that had fallen, which didn't hit the house or anything, but it was just an eyesore. Good safety procedures all around, I thought. I can't see how they would have really done better, so I'll give them A+. All was as expected as far as cleanliness—when you're moving trees around, you're going to dig up the yard a bit. That's expected, though. They were totally qualified, safe, bonded experts. I would go to them first if I had another problem.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“They continue to do work for us, and it's been positive. My yard had basically gone to pot. So, I hired them to help us rehab the whole yard and get it back to normal again. The guy that I worked with told me that they couldn't do it immediately, but over time, they could. In less than the time that he said they could, they got it back and going good. I would recommend them to other people, and they're pretty aboveboard. They've been responsive and done everything that they said they could. I'd give them an A for what they've done, the completed service. In fact, they've called me a couple times and asked me some questions to make sure that they were doing what I wanted them to do.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“They were quite positive. We'd use them again if we had reason to. We had a problem with a tree that looked like it may fall over, and they came out and saw what it was, and we were due to have some storms the next day. He said he would be out right away to take care of the tree and he did. They got out here and they took the tree down. I'd give The Davey Tree Expert Company an A.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“I feel like the service is always great, from the time we started using them. I can definitely see the difference in our lawn. It's much healthier, and when our neighbors walk by, I feel like they always remark or make comments about how nice it looks. Overall, I would give them an 8 1/2 because I feel like their billing just needs to be a little better. I would do an A grade.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“I've used The Davey Tree Expert Company several times now, and they have done a great job and they're very knowledgeable. I go to another company a lot, but even this other company does not have the level of knowledge that Davey has in dealing with my trees and shrubs and all the plants. It's most definitely A+.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“They've very professional, they're always on time, and if I have any questions, they'll answer it. I would grade them with an A. I had an issue with customer service. I took care of it, I called the corporate offices and got it worked out. I think we've had five neighbors that have used them already.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“We had a very good experience. They were very professional. We had trees that had a disease, so they explained to me what it was and how it progressed so we could make a decision whether we wanted to have the trees removed now or wait. They were very helpful. I'd give them an A grade.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“I've had them on and off for some time. They've always been good. They seem very knowledgeable. They come when they're supposed to, they're on time, and they do what they say they do. They're an A+.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“They're great. My whole family uses them—my dad, my brother and sister-in-law, and we've used them at my house for multiple projects. They're great. I would give Davey Tree Expert Company an A+.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“They've been our lawn service for probably five years. I have a mixed experience right now. I've had some mixed reviews, at the moment. Overall, I'd give them a B. I'm going to stay with them, I believe, for next summer.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“They did a pretty good job. There was some confusion about the price. They had given me a quote beforehand, and when I called to schedule the appointment, their first response was that price was way too low and there was no way they could do it for that and the only way they honored it is that I still had the written form that the guy gave me the first day. So that part of it was more confrontational than I thought it needed to be, but the work itself was good. I would say it's a B.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“There's some work that is pending, and I think it's pending because of the weather. The contract was signed in October, and I knew that they were running six to eight weeks behind at that time, so they've done some work and there is some pending. I would give them a B. I've had another tree service for years, and I would probably go back to the other service simply because I was familiar. At the time, I'm not sure why I pulled Davey out of the book, but I did. But they're OK. I would not dis-recommend them. In other words, there were no problems.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“They did leave some ruts in my yard. I wasn't very happy about that. But I didn't call them back to do anything about it because I just didn't bother. I would give them a B.”

Review by
01/04/2018

“Not the best experience. I had them take out five trees in front. Thought we were clear on stump removal. They came back and said that wasn't included. I thought it was. I said, 'OK, fine.' It turned out to be quite expensive. And then the stump removal left a huge pile of dirt on the ground. There's like a three-foot pile of dirt five feet around on the ground where they took these trees out and that was apparently their deal, and so I ended up having to go out there with a wheelbarrow and clean all that mess up. That sort of frankly pissed me off. I probably would not deal with them again. They deserve a C. It wasn't so much the work that they did that was the issue. It was agreement on what I thought the work was. The work that they did was fine. They just didn't do the work I thought they were going to do.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“I called yesterday, or the day before yesterday, and I never got a call back. The original service was fine, but it was a three-step process. That was in August, and they have never come back to finish the job. It was a matter of removing the tree, and then removing the stump—which has not been done—and then planting a new tree. I haven't heard from them after the tree was removed. I called to find out why I didn't get a follow up and they said they would call me right back, but they haven't. I'm not sure what's going on. The original experience I would grade an A, but the follow up I would grade with a D. I need to hear back from them.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They do major tree work for us, and they do some test work for us as well. There is a particular person that we like to deal with there who is very good. His name is Derrick. He is the only one I deal with there. My overall experience was excellent. The guy that comes to spray for our pest control, he is fantastic. It's affecting my trees, and we've had it for several years, and the person—I don't know his name—that comes to do that is superb. He is very kind to go to our bird baths and turn them over so they don’t get pesticide in them, and he covers up our herbs—I never think of that. I recommend them.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They are helping eradicate problems that can affect all my trees. I would grade them an A+ because I don't know what they could do better. There is no set time for what I do, therefore I don't really come when they come. They have a window every week and they do. They know what they are doing and I don't have any concerns about cleanliness. I would recommend them. Their prices are higher than other tree companies and I believe they are aware of that. But that is the only thing.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“I've used The Davey Tree Expert Company for years, and I'm happy. They have been excellent. They have to do major pruning for me half the time, and they fertilize my trees. They get rid of the bugs on my azaleas, and prevent the bugs that want to come onto my azaleas. I would say they are very good. I would grade them an A+. They have been very punctual. I have not had any problems.  ”

Review by
10/04/2016

“The Davey Tree Expert Company has done tree removal and stump grinding for me. I would grade them an A. The gentleman, their arborist, is kind and courteous. He seems like he’s a generally respectable person.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“I would grade them A+. They are very good. They've done pest control, they helped salvage a tree of ours, and they do all of our lawn fertilization. I would very likely recommend them.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They were outstanding. They were trimming our trees. They described the work that needed to be done, and then, a few days later, they came out and did it perfectly. I would grade them an A+. They said they would be here at one p.m. on a Wednesday, and they were here at one p.m. on a Wednesday. ”

Review by
10/04/2016

“The Davey Tree Expert Company did lawn treatment and a tree treatment. They were very prompt and very thorough with their treatment. They were very good and very careful. I would grade them an A+. I have already recommended them.  ”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They trimmed the trees, worked on the bushes, did some fertilizing, and generally maintained the health of the plants. I would grade them an A+. They usually call me a day before they are coming. The plants are living, that 's what we are after, and the trees, we think, add value to our house. That's why we use them.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They mainly come to spray the trees and bushes for a variety of insects. I would grade them an A. I found a problem with a couple of my trees so I called several companies to send an arborist out to find out what was wrong. The others said they could make it in two to three weeks, but Davey was out in 36 hours.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They deep root seeded all of the trees, they sprayed all of them, particularly the box trees for spider mites, and they took care of an ash tree. They also do some heavy cutting, They are great. I would grade them an A. They come when they are ready to come and when the yard is ready for them to come. I have a contract with them and have recommended them many times.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They do fertilizing and aerating. They are out here five times a year. I would grade them an A. I would highly recommend them. I like the quality of their work and their efficiently. They had a commercial contract at the company that I used to work at, that's when I brought them into my residence after seeing them work at the place I use to work at.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They took down part of a tree that went down in a storm. It was pretty straightforward stuff. It was a good price and as advertised. I would grade them an A. All of the above.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They did do a good job. They do monthly service to my yard. I would grade them an A. They were fine. Their expertise was good.”

Review by

“They cut two crepe myrtles, and then a third. I would say everything was great, and I would very likely recommend them.”

Review by

“They did some work that I needed done for some bugs on my azaleas. Everything is fine. I've been using them for years.”

Review by

Review by

Review by

Review by
10/04/2016

Review by

“They cabled a tree and did some pruning. I would grade them an A+. They were on time and great all around.”

Review by

“Davey Tree mostly does fertilizing, but they also do some pest control and some trimming. I would grade them an A.”

Review by

“They did some fertilization on our trees. I would grade them an A.”

Review by

“I would recommend The Davey Tree Expert Company for tree service.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They just did some trimming out of old branches and a little maintenance. I would grade them a B.”

Review by
10/04/2016

“They do lawn work, and then they do tree treatments. I would grade them a B+. I have some dislikes. One tree has died, and another tree looks like it's going to die, so I'm beginning to wonder if our treatment is working.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They knew what they were doing. They came in, did it, and cleaned up after. They trimmed three trees. I’d say they get an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“What stood out for me was that I didn’t have to think about it. I have all sorts of things that they do throughout the year. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They do a good job, and they do it promptly. They seem to always do it very well. They trimmed back three trees and some bushes. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by

“They did what I asked them. They pruned my tree. I chose them because I saw my neighbor use them. I'd rate them as an A.”

Review by

Review by

“They did a fine job. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They come on time and they do exactly what they say they're going to do. They have good follow-up if things are not up to my standards. The reason I chose them over a different company is because of price and reputation—both, actually. I’ve got a couple of holly trees that have a disease that they’ve been treating. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They did a really good job trimming the trees. The salesman was fine. The reason I chose them over a different company is because we were familiar with them for most of our life; our neighbor also used them and was satisfied. I'd give them an A+. There were no issues at all. They did a good job and cleaned everything up. They did what we asked.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They did my trees and then recovered the lawn a lot, so they also did shrubs. They did deep fertilization. I can’t tell whether it made a difference because we’ve had winter, and I think we should wait another month. The reason I chose them over a different company is because my neighbor used them. I think they were fine. They should have an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They did an excellent job. They came out, trimmed properly, and cleaned up properly. They did a good job. I’ve got about a 40-foot pear tree in the front of my townhouse. They trimmed and sculpted it. The reason I chose them over a different company is because I’ve used them several times before. I'd give them an A for quality and price.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They did the tree in the front yard. We had a bad experience with a similar company about a year earlier, and they did everything kind of the opposite. They did what they said they were going to do. They did it quickly, and they cleaned up when they were done. Basically, they just did a lot of trimming on a tree in the front yard—a lot. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They were great. They were really capable. They left remarkably little damage for such a very large job. They were prompt, and it was a lot faster than they had predicted. The experience was great. They cut down a very large tree in our yard. I chose them because they said they could do it without a crane. I'd give them an A- because they could have cleaned up a little more.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They were prompt, and they did a good job. The other thing was I didn’t even know the tree was cut from how well they cleaned the debris and all that. They were very good. They shaped it up—it was a little too tall and hanging over the neighbor’s yard. They did a beautiful job bringing it back on my property and all. I'd give them an A+. I’m completely happy with the job.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They were very easy to deal with on the phone. The office people and the workers who came here were very easy to deal with. I thought they were very efficient. We had a considerable amount of pruning done on some trees and bushes. The reason I chose them is because we had some work done by them a couple of years ago. I'd give them an A+. I would definitely use them again.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They did exactly what I wanted them to do, they weren’t too expensive, and it turned out well. Behind my house, I have two very tall pines; the branches hit up against the house, so they climbed up there and trimmed them down. I had a pine tree in the front that was too big, and up against the house—they cut that one out and ground the stump out. I can give them an A-.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They were very pleasant. They came and took down a tree that needed to come down. They did exactly what I asked, and they cleaned it up well. I thought they did a good job. It was a tree that was on the verge of dying, and the arborist had recommended that it needed to come down. It’s in a woodsy area, so they just took it down and took it away. I'd rate them as an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“I like their professionalism. They come in, and they tell you what they're going to do. They get it done, they clean up, and they leave. I have no complaints. The reason I chose them over a different company is because of my experience using them. I’ve been using Davey now maybe for 20 years. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“I have them under regular contract. They do quality work. I have them come out for regular pruning that requires a bucket truck. I have them put dormant oil on one of the trees and deep root feeding for another. The reason I chose them is because they’ve done better work than the other companies have. They know what they're doing. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“Back in the fall, they did some pruning. I have a tree that has a disease; I don’t know what it is, but they're taking care of it. They're supposed to be back next month to follow up on it. I started using them about 20 years ago or more. They just seem to know what they're doing. They are definitely A-quality people.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“the representative came, talked, and did what he said he would do for the most part. They took out a tree and they planted a new one. The reason I chose them over a different company is because they were less expensive. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“They did a good job. They took care of the trees. They did an excellent tree removal for me. They removed a stump, and they did it quickly. The customer service was part of it. They did the trees quickly, and they did a good job. I'd give them an A+. I had no complaints.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“The experience with them was good. They did tree removal and tree trimming. They were very professional in their work and in their scheduling. The reason I chose them over a different company is because I’ve used them before. I'd give them A-. I think they could improve on keeping their prices down.”

Review by
11/24/2015

“The experience was good. They were just easy to deal with. They took out some trees in the back and treated a tree. The reason I chose them over another company is because they were recommended by a neighbor who had a good experience with them. I'd give them an A+.”
