Review by

“I would like to recognize the manager of the project. I really appreciated his knowledge of the area and history with the company. It made it really nice. We have only lived here a year. The trees in our yard are our favorite part of the house and he was able to explain how things worked in this area. It gave me a lot of knowledge that I could use as a homeowner. That started with our first meeting. He walked around the yard and talked about the trees, their age, and things to look for. It just gave me this comfortable feeling. Even when I needed an update on a tree that was showing signs of duress, he came right over and remembered our yard and trees.”

Review by

“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+.”

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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.  ”
