HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“With Davey, we've had nothing but good experiences. We've been using them for a long time. I like their professionalism, and their arborists are extremely knowledgeable—A+.”

“Davey Tree does a lot of work for us. They're always prompt, and they know a whole lot about trees. They're really great. I'm extremely likely to recommend them—I've already done it. A+.”

“They're doing some work for a friend of mine, too. First of all, they—I'm trying to think of his name, person that came out—he was excellent, to tell us what needed to be done, and then I had an email follow-up here that was very informative—and the guy that came for the tree roots was very pleasant and good. We had a tree that was not looking exactly healthy, so they did the injectable fertilizer into the roots. I'd give Davey Trees an A. Very prompt. Very clean. Expertise was outstanding.”

“The technicians are fantastic; salesmen always get back to me, and their work is really good. They do tick control for me and a little tree work. I would grade the Davey Tree Expert Company an A.”

“The customer care—they've taken care of our trees for 20 years. They are awesome; I would grade the Davey Tree Expert Company an A.”

“They did what we hired them to do. I'd give them an excellent rating. I've dealt with them off and on over the years. Installation is fine. I would be very likely to recommend them.”

“They've been great. I asked them to call the night before—to let me know if they're coming, so I can make sure my dogs are inside the house—which they always do. They've called to let me know there's a new service person on the team—ask, can he come out and meet with us. They're just always responsive. I call if I have a problem; they come right out. They just couldn't be nicer, and they do a really good job. We've had them for a long time. They've fertilized the trees, I guess, and stuff with the grass too. Different services over the years. I'd give Davey Trees an A.”

“The Davey Tree Expert Company sprayed trees, and I'm not sure if they injected one of the trees to prevent the ash borer. They did a really good job—A+.”

“They worked with me. They did my lawn, fertilizing, and they also did my shrubs. They did my lawn treatment. They didn't mow my lawn. I would give them an A+ overall. I would absolutely recommend the Davey Tree Expert Company, any day of the week.”

“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+.”

“They did the work that was necessary. They removed a tree that was dead—the branches—and everything was fine. I would grade them an A. Everything was good; I would very much recommend them.”

“It was good. I was very satisfied. They did a nice job. The work was very good.”

“They've done our lawn care—fertilizing and stuff—this year. They come, they do their thing, and they're very friendly. Most of the time we haven't had any trouble. They've done a good job with the yard. The only thing that they've done is, sometimes they've scattered some weed killer on our garden that has flowers in it, not weeds. They've done tree work before, and we've been very happy with that. They cleaned out some of our trees, and then they put metal wires/ties in the trees so they don't split. We've been very happy. They deserve an A.”

“I'd give them an A. They did tree service for me.”

“They just did everything they said they were going to do. They did some tree work, and they did some landscaping. I'd give them an A. It was good. No problems.”

“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.”

“They did good work. They did lawn treatment and tree trimming. I would give them an A, overall.”

“They came out and got the job done. Fertilization for different times of the year, and tree work—things like that. I would grade them an A.”

“Davey trimmed the dead branches out of a bunch of trees that are on the street line. I went to work, came home, and it was done. I was very happy. Their quality of work was exceptional. They were great to work with. Overall, I would give them an A+. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

“They did some trimming, pruning, and fertilization. They're personable when they come, and they respond promptly when I talk to them by telephone. They are an A.”

“They did trimming, got rid of some tree waste, and then they gave us some advice about different trees that were on the property. They get an A for the overall experience. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

“They're terrific—absolutely excellent across the board with everything.”

“They're very good.”

“They're great. They're just good.”

“It was a positive experience.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Their cleanliness and expertise is fine.”

“Most likely to recommend them.”

“It was fine. No complaints, I'd recommend them.”

“Definitely went very well, they did a great job. Definitely no complaints and would recommend them to a friend.”

“They just cut some branches. No complaints. No issues with customer service, punctuation, or cleanliness.”

“They're friends, they're great. Very likely to recommend to a friend.”

“They are so good. No complaints, absolutely none.”

“We were happy with their work.”

“They were great. They just did tree work, and it was excellent—no complaints.”

“They did tree service. It was excellent. I had no complaints.”

“They get an A. They did something I requested because I had some tree damage.”

“They did tree cutting—that was fine.”

“They were prompt, did a nice job, and cleaned up well. They were taking a large sycamore down and grinding the stump. The whole thing took a few hours. They removed all the remnants of the tree along with all the debris from the stump grinding. I actually recommended them to a neighbor, and I'd rate them an A.”

“I liked their timeliness, and they are a local provider. They've done tree removal and lawn care; it's something that we schedule, and then they come out and do it. They take maybe 20 to 30 minutes depending on the service—for trees, maybe an hour. I would recommend them. They're an A.”

“They do a good job, they show up on time, and they call ahead of time. I schedule it every year several times during the season—during the spring and the fall. They do lawn, tree, and shrub work. I would recommend them. They deserve an A.”

“I work with them, and they work for me. They did a very nice job.”

“They cleaned up, and they were on time. They did tree pruning, and I've been using them for about ten years. I would grade them an A.”

“It was very good, they were prompt, and they did what they said they were going to do. They removed trees and trimmed bushes. I've been dealing with Davey for a number of years, and I would give them an A.”

“They got back to me immediately and did a professional job. They absolutely delivered on what they said they would. They removed a large downed oak tree from my property. They were recommended by my insurance company. I'd give Davey an A.”

“I like that he was very responsive via email—I didn't have to communicate by phone; I could communicate via email. They did pruning and fertilizing. I would grade them an A.”

“They did a great job. I would rate them an A. They cleaned up very nice, and their personalities were good. The manager that showed up and talked with me about what they were going to do did a great job.”

“I used them to cut some trees. The representative that I dealt with was very forward and answered all my questions, and I was happy that they stand behind their work. If there were any questions or issues, I could call them, and they would take care of that—I was very happy about that. They took down two trees in my front yard. I looked at local companies, and they were one of the places that came and gave me a quote.”

“We've been very pleased. We've recommended them to other people, and we would use them again. They are always very prompt, and they always do the job that they are scheduled to do. They clean up after themselves, and we have no complaints. We have a lot of hemlocks between us and our neighbors; they trimmed those for us and did other trees in the yard, and they did a very nice job. I would grade them an A.”

“They are very good. They are a great company, and I would certainly work with them again.”

“They do personal follow-ups, and they've kept all their appointments. I have regular lawn maintenance with them. They have a customer rep who's in touch, and he calls ahead of time and lets me know things. He also gives me personalized recommendations as to what we should do with no pressure, so I enjoyed them. I'd give them an A.”

“They're responsive to my requests for information. They do the work they promise, and their billing is convenient. I had a cherry tree that they were treating regularly every year, but the tree became diseased and had to be taken down, so that was the last tree I had on the property. I heard of them from a neighbor. I'd grade them an A.”

“They did the job as planned, and they came back to do a couple refinements, so we were completely satisfied. Everything worked out fine. They were professional throughout. We heard of them just through word of mouth. They presented an approach that we liked; it was a step-by-step approach as opposed to a carte blanche plan. Davey Tree gets an A.”

“They were great. They came out, told us what we needed to do to get everything done, and then came out and did it. They trimmed back a bunch of bushes and trees. They were good. The guy came out and didn't want to do it over the phone—he wanted me to specifically lay out what was going to be done so he could say that that was what was done. It was good leading up to the work as well as being good after it was clear what was supposed to be done. We've been using them for years for other things. I'd give them an A.”

“They took care of trees. We had somebody else that came out and butchered the trees up, and Davey came out and fixed everything up for us. They rate an A.”

“Davey Tree did work for me back home. They're fine people. They did what I asked them to do. They come out off and on throughout the whole summer. We've had them for several years, and they've done good work. I chose them because they've been in our neighborhood for years, so I knew of them. I think they've earned an A.”

“I've used them a bunch of times. I've never used another company. They've never done anything to make me angry—that's usually my indicator of 'OK, I can keep you.' They seem to know what they're talking about, which is good. I typically call them as needed, but they end up coming about twice a year around the same time. I'd give them an A.”

“They did a nice job. We just used them one time, but we will be using them again. It was good. They did a big job for us. They took down trees and trimmed them up and so forth. Another tree company went out of business, and Davey took it over, so we started using them. Their company is an A.”

“He was very efficient. He was very nice. When he was scheduled to come, he did come. I wasn't home when he came, but they did a good job. They just came out once to do the estimate and then once to do the work the next time. A friend of mine had used them to have a tree removed, so he suggested I use them. They get an A grade from me.”

“They just came one time. They did the job that they said they were going to do. They were just trimming some trees and removing a couple. They were very professional about the whole operation. I'd seen their work around, and I knew they were very professional through word of mouth. They weren't just hack-and-slash tree cutters—they knew how to trim trees so the tree would be healthy when they were done. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very good—super. I told them what I wanted done, and they did exactly that—no problem. They just came out one time to trim some trees. They'd be an A.”

“They were great. It was easy. We had a tree at the end of its life cycle, and they came in, took care of it, and did what they said they would do. It was about as easy as something like that can be. I heard of them a decade ago. They've been monitoring that tree for me for a long time. They get an A rating.”

“I had a tremendous experience with Davey Tree, and I would recommend them. I love the crew—they were phenomenal, and I really like their work. I was really impressed. They're an A+.”

“Davey Tree is fantastic. The guys came and did a great job. They elevated the Japanese maple out front and got rid of anything that was not producing. We have a huge Norway maple, and they did the same with that. I give out very few A's, but they deserve it.”

“I'm a repeat customer. I have a large lot, and they cut back my trees every year. I find their customer service impeccable. If I have any questions, they get back to me immediately. I highly recommend them to anybody. I'd give them an A+.”

“Davey Tree did a wonderful job, and they clean up so beautifully; I don't have to pick up anything after they leave.”

“They did our cherry tree. They did it on time, and they did a beautiful job. We're very satisfied with the work. Their customer service was excellent. They were pleasant. The young man that made the sales call was very knowledgeable, and the two workmen who did the pruning were very professional. They were doing work at a neighbor's house in our development when I stopped and asked someone to get in touch with me. Someone did, they offered a proposal, and we accepted the proposal. I would give them an A.”

“Davey Tree did what they said they were going to do. They trimmed the trees. It was a one-time occurrence, and their cleanup was excellent. I would recommend them, and I'd grade them as an A.”

“They were experts in their field. I could tell that as soon as we started working with them, and they were very professional. I enjoyed working with them, and I would work with them in the future. They did tree service, and it was excellent. I had no complaints.”

“Davey Tree is good, and we like them a lot. We ask them for advice, and they tell us what needs to be done. They do the best, and they clean up very well. The young man seems knowledgeable about the trees. We are very happy with them, and we've called them a few times. They cut limbs off the trees. I think they also cut down a couple of trees that we wanted cut down, and they shaped them. I'd give them an A.”

“Davey Tree is great. We've had them to do two different jobs for us, and the reason we called them back the second time is because they did such a good job on the first job. They were very professional, they did a great job cleaning up, and they were there when they said they would be there. I don't say this about many people, but we were really impressed. A friend of mine who lives down the street from us recommended them, so we chose them. They're an A.”

“They're very good. They did the job when they said they would, and they did a thorough job and cleaned up beautifully. They worked well. They just came out one time when I wanted some tree work done, and I could count on them. I'd give them an A.”

“I love Jerome. He knows what he's talking about, and he's never steered us wrong. I call him out on an as-needed basis, and he comes out regularly. I heard about them from the neighbors. I've had them take down trees, and they come out every year and fertilize. I've had them cut back trees and bushes. We've had them do just about everything except landscaping. I'd give them an A for their service and quality.”

“They're very knowledgeable and very passionate about what they do. They're coming out on a more regular basis. They came out and did vitamins, but we have lots of different specimen trees they take care of. They're insanely knowledgeable, and they know what they're talking about. We used to have a company, and they're no longer in our area. They gave all our business to Davey Tree, and I actually like them better. I'd give them an A+.”

“They're very experienced, and they are experts in their field. There was a fallen tree that was leaning against an evergreen tree. There were some safety concerns, so they did a good job making sure it didn't fall. I would recommend them, and I would grade them as an A.”

“The Davey Tree Expert Company has done a great job.”
