Tell us a bit about your business and the services that you offer?
Davey Tree is a tree and lawn care service established in 1880, featuring locations nation-wide. Another unique feature of Davey Tree is that it is employee run. The bulk of our work consists of caring for trees and shrubs on residential and commercial properties. Among the services we provide are planting, fertilization, insect removal/treatment and tree removal.
Why is it important to you to support GHCC and the Neighborhood Institute?
GHCC and Davey Tree share a common mission. Both organizations work tirelessly to improve and beautify Baltimore neighborhoods, although in different ways.
What is your favorite thing about the work that you do?
The satisfaction. It is so beautiful to look up at the tree canopy and see the fruits of your labor. The life of an arborist is fun and physical. It keeps you in great shape!
What is one piece of advice you would give home owners about tree maintenance in their yards?
The most important piece of advice I can give is to make sure you plant the right tree in the correct location. It is all about the “best fit” when planting a tree. Home owners need to keep in consideration the mature height + width of a tree and confirm the tree will have access to the nutrients it needs (water, oxygen, sunlight, etc.).
What do you love about working in the Greater Homewood area?
The atmosphere and people are great! The Greater Homewood area also has the advantage of being a heavily forested area, with a wide variety of different trees. This makes it an enjoyable place to work.
