Company founder, John Davey, believed tree care is a science, and the original business plan included a technical development and research department to bring the leading science of the day to our client's property via our field service teams.
The scientists and technical advisors at The Davey Institute guide field service teams in diagnosing and prescribing the best products, application procedure and pest and disease cultural practices to be used at the client site.
Davey technical teams are staffed with experts in a particular aspect of plant care and a specific geographic region. These experts, who are scientists with advanced degrees in fields such as entomology, horticulture, urban forestry, forestry, turf, agronomy, plant pathology, plant physiology, computer science and botany, train our technicians and serve as resources to address the specific needs of our clients.
Field teams have intranet access to our multimedia reference materials, including detailed photos, videos and databases to properly diagnose a client's lawn or tree care issues.
In addition to pathology and materials expertise, Davey teams develop new technologies used to assist governments and large commercial properties inventory, analyze and quantify the environmental services benefits their tree populations provides.
