“I will definitely recommend The Davey Tree Expert Company (Philadelphia) to a friend. I tried calling 6 different companies to take care of the tree, and The Davey Tree Expert Company (Philadelphia) was the only company that was able to schedule an appointment with me within the week, came out gave me an exact estimate, kept in contact with me, returned my calls and did the work.

Review by
11/15/2017

“I met the representative at the house. He came by, took a look at it. He wrote me a report that I needed. He was reasonably priced, the report was. His services may be a little bit higher than average, but when you look at the knowledge and the technical skills behind it, it may be very, very worthwhile. They did tree services for me. I went with the lower price, and that turned out to be a mistake. I would give Davey Tree an A.”

Review by
11/15/2017

“They came to do one job and while they were here another big tree came down, and they put everything in order and got the stuff in the next day with a big crane to take care of that. They were trimming up two trees, but a third one fell before they got started. They're an A+.”

Review by
11/15/2017

“They came when they said they were going to, they cleaned up after themselves, and did exactly what I asked. They took a tree down and cleaned up another tree. I would say they're an A. I would recommend them.”

Review by

“They did fine. They took down a tree and ground a stump. This was the first time I've used them. They came over the same day they did my neighbor's. I'd give them a B+. I have no problems with them.”

Review by
11/15/2017

“I think it was last spring, some people come by, and it seemed like what was done, wasn't satisfactory. So, there were still dead branches on it that we noticed later in the year. They offered to come back in the fall, but I opted not to. It should've been covered in the spring. We still had the guy come over to feed the tree. One, they actually took down in the back and the one in the front we asked them to come by and prune—there were definitely some branches that were dead or on the way out. It's weird that some of them are still there. They offered to come back and end up paying for two. So, I kind of hesitated to have them back, but we still had them come to feed it. Jerome would've been an A+; he was awesome. But then like I said, the service when they had to come back—B+. From what I can tell, the quality is OK. The tree's gone. Nothing else to compare their cleanliness to, but Davey Trees seemed OK as far as having the tree down.”

Review by
11/15/2017

“Right now, I'm not extremely happy with them. People are getting the wrong information about my property—they show up at my house, and they came from a different area, and I said, I had three trees, and they only had two trees. And they showed up at 7 o'clock at night, so my husband was here; I was not here—I usually take care of all that stuff. And then I found out that the gentleman who normally takes care of my thing—he had taken another job with another department with Davey over in Jersey. And he's the one I've always had, for like 25 years. I have Ash trees, they have been treating my Ash trees. Basically, I've put a lot of money into them to help them, and I understand that it's a difficult situation with the borer and everything, however, I'm losing them. I'll give them a—they deserve a C. Up until now, the quality has been fine. It's been a disappointment for me. They're usually punctual, but the problem is, I want them to call me before they come, and lately they have not done it. And I have talked to a tech I've known for years with them, and he was shocked that they weren't doing what I asked them because he had documentation there from other customers that they wanted them to call before they came and mine is not happening.”

“The work was fine. I think maybe they overcharged us, so that was negative. They did treatment for some our trees that are diseased. I would say they get a C. The quality of the work was fine.”

“We've had a contract with them for several years. They do lawn service. I never meet them. It's an A overall. I've never called them. I've never had to call them about anything.”

Review by

“They did some trimming for us and some pruning and some fertilization. I wasn't here when they did the work but they're personable when they come and they respond promptly when I talk to them by telephone. They are an A overall.”

Review by
09/28/2016

“They did trimming, they actually got rid of some tree waste, and then they also gave us some advice about different trees that were on the property. We actually weren't there when the crew came out, so that was kind of a nice part of it, that we didn't have to be there. A is fine for their overall experience. Very likely to recommend.”

Review by
09/28/2016

“They fertilize the lawn. Nothing really stands out. They do a good job. They don't really leave a trace of them being there. They're on time. They there when they say they will. I'll give them an A, because I did have one problem one time but they did come back and resolve the problem. Everyone can improve a little, right? There was an issue that they burned the lawn when they fertilized but they fixed it. Very good quality. Excellent customer service. Good punctuality. Excellent cleanliness. Good expertise.”

Review by
09/28/2016

“I like Davey a lot. It might just be the weather condition but it seems like, for all the fertilizer we're doing to the grass, it should be a lot better than it is. But I guess we're addressing it too. They're definitely very responsive. I'm not here when they come. They haven't ever come outside and they haven't ever really done any tree work for me so their cleanliness is fine. They seem pretty knowledgeable. I'd probably say A minus overall. I would definitely recommend them.”

Review by
09/28/2016

“They trimmed the dead branches out of a bunch of trees that are on the street line. I have no idea about the crew, they did it while I was at work. I went to work, came home, it was done, and I was very happy. Overall, I would give them an A+. Their quality of work was exceptional. They were great to work with. Very likely to recommend.”

Review by

“Davey Tree was out here. I was really surprised at how much was coming off the tree, but the service technician that was out here made it my decision whether we wanted to go forward or not. At that point, they were here, and I was trying to get the work done because I was almost thinking about looking into another tree company for a cross-comparison and seeing what they were interested in doing in the winter. Davey was going to come back in the winter and doing some other work but so much was taken off the tree. I'm almost wondering if we should have just spent the money on cutting down the three—that's how much of the tree was left. I wouldn't say a negative experience, I would say neutral. If they had felt that so little of the tree would have been left, would they have encouraged us to spend the money on cutting the tree down? I definitely wanted to save the tree if I could. But I had no idea they were going to go all the way up. Just a few branches that were left at the tippy-top and they don't even look that good. And it was expensive. We paid 45 bucks, plus another 1 dollars for fertilizing the tree. That's 55 dollars invested in a tree that maybe should have been cut down and had a new tree replace it. I looked into having my girlfriend call them over and she did. She said although their price was comparable to other tree services she had over, same deal, they wanted to bring that height up into the tree like so high. Another guy came in and was comparable with the price but she just felt better about going with this other tree company who I'm going to have come out and quote me for the winter work we were going to have done. She said he didn't talk about elevating the tree so high. The tree was in bad shape, but if they were going to go that high, they should've recommended that you might want to consider cutting down the tree because leaving you with a few branches at the price you're paying might not be worth your while. My husband was like screaming when he came home. But I had already seen it so I was trying to calm him down. I guess overall it would have to be a B. They did the work but it just was way more tree cut off than anybody expected. He was pointing up, but I didn't think he was pointing up that high. Once you cut, it's gone. The branches are cut, they're gone. I think they're a first rate outfit, I don't have any doubt that they have a good reputation. It's just we're all bummed about how much came off of the tree. They should have really discussed that what would have to come off the tree, the tree might not be worth saving. That's 55 dollars invested into the tree. They said there was going to be a bucket tree, bucket truck with the bucket. There was no bucket with the tree. That was a discrepancy, I don't know what happened there. It left me wondering why? What things wasn't I contacted about? Had I been here, and I saw how it was going, I would have been able to stop them. Cleanliness, there was no problem, there was no debris left over. Expertise, I don't know, it should have been clearer what was going to be left on that tree and if only that was gonna be left on the tree. You can imagine, for 55 dollars if this tree doesn't make it, that was a waste of likely over a thousand dollars when it could have just been cut down and a new tree put in its place. I don't think I will recommend them. Because in the future, I'm not going with them.”

“Davey Tree, I think they're the ones that do my lawn. I probably won't be using them again next year. They say that you can call if you're not happy, they'll come back and like fix it and that sort of thing. I find that last year, because the rep was so nice, he was so attentive, he was so on top of things. I've had really hard time getting people to call me back. I would call and the mailbox would be full, a lot of hassle. The guys that come out to do the work, they're awesome. I think the service people are either overwhelmed, or maybe not in the right position. Probably a C overall. My lawn has more weeds this year than it ever did last year so, I don't know if that's the year or if it's something else. I just don't know. I have nothing to compare to it other than last year. Punctuality's been good. I don't really know for their expertise, because I'm not sure what the issue here is. There's a lot of crab grass, I don't think there should be. The other guy, I could call him, his mailbox was never not full, so I just don't bother. My neighbor, she uses Davey also, and she has the exact same feeling about it. So neither one of us will be using Davey next year, because we both have more weeds. Our yards do not look as nice as it did last year. And Brandon was the rep last year, I don't know if that matters. He would call, he would check in, he would stop by just to make sure. He finished out last year, and then it was this year when there was a new guy. I would call and talk to the lady in the office and she was like well you have to call your rep. So when I called my rep, it's like his mailbox was full, then I called the lady back and now I'm spending three phone calls trying to solve the issue. That was in the beginning, but then he did call me back. I don’t want to act like he didn't call me back, he did, but then the lawn just doesn't look right. He says we always guarantee our work, so he did come back out. But then I have to coordinate that with the people who cut my lawn. I just feel like it should be done right the first time. Not likely to recommend.”

“They're treating the lawn, and they started treating this lawn this late in the season. I just hired them later, like halfway through the season. So they're treating my lawn. They were supposed to show up Monday and they showed up Tuesday without calling. I have a swimming pool in the backyard. We must keep our gates locked, for safety reasons. I left them unlocked, they didn't show up Monday and nobody ever called. Then the guy showed up on Tuesday morning. But nobody ever called or said they weren't coming, so they're not real communicative. I'll just give them a C right now and we'll see where it goes from there. Don't know the quality of work yet, too early to tell. Customer service is ok. No issue with cleanliness. Don't know their expertise yet.”

Review by
09/28/2016

“They've got progressively worse. More negative than positive. They feed the trees, they do grub service. They do about five or six different things throughout the seasons. Just doing the service when they want to do the service, not when it's the best time for the trees. Like, when the ground's rock hard, they call and they want to do the feeding. Everyone knows you need the moister soil and everything for the feed to work, but they just want to get the job done and billed. The overall experience is mediocre. If they don't do it at the right time then it's futile. Customer service has gotten better just because they tell them not to come and do something when they know it's not the right time. I've been taking more of an assertive attitude towards them. They even call and apologize. They're right on time when they want to do something. They're clean. For their expertise, I've had it both ways: I've had people come out and say they're stupid.”

Review by

“I am totally disgusted with them. I will never use them again. I have just spent tons of money and have the worst lawn after three years of dealing with them. I haven't gotten to write the letter yet, but I paid them twice now because they told me to put two Nutsedge treatments down. I put the two Nutsedge treatments down, there's still Nutsedge in my lawn. I have bare spots all over where they reseeded it last year, it never took. They did it twice, it didn't take. And now, I'm looking to decide what I'm going to do to get my lawn back. My front lawn, that was in pretty good shape, now has bare spots in it. I have done every treatment that they asked me. They asked me to do a grub treatment, I did a grub treatment. Put two more Nutsedges on it and I still have crabgrass. It's ridiculous. F overall. They're responsive, but it's always 'Well, try this.' Now they're telling me I have to go spend another 8 or 9 dollars. We have an irrigation system so it's not that it doesn't have enough water on it. I've been in the same house for 3 years, and I've never had a worse looking lawn after having them for 3 years. Not at all likely to recommend them.”

Review by
09/28/2016

“We did not have a positive experience. They did a service that wasn't in our contract, and then they charged us 1 dollars. I'd say that's negative. If they make restitution on it that'd be fine, but I haven't heard anything on it since I called them. Punctuality was good. Overall, they’re a D. I am not likely to recommend them to a friend.”

“They're great, and I don't say that about many companies. They've done a lot of work for me. They come out and trim all my trees, and they mark off everything and give me the value of those things. They do a really good job, and they're reasonable. I'd give them an A+.”
