Davey Tree bolsters presence in Minnesota, Seattle

daveyTreeThe Davey Tree Expert Co. entered the New Year with the acquisitions of Maier Forest and Tree in Rochester, Minn., and Superior NW Tree & Shrub Care in Seattle.

“We are excited to welcome these companies and their talented teams into the Davey family,” said Pat Covey, COO for U.S. operations.  “We have no doubt they will benefit from Davey’s diversified service offerings, technology and equipment resources, research and development capability, and of course the culture of employee ownership.”

Maier Forest and Tree has been in the Rochester, Minn.-area for 14 years, specializing in pruning, tree and stump removal, plant health care and consulting services. Jay Maier, owner and founder, said his decision to choose Davey was based on personal experience with the company.

“My career as an arborist began after college in 1994 with Davey Tree,” he said. “I cut my teeth under their care and I owe much of my knowledge to Davey arborists who were my coworkers.  I know firsthand that Davey shares our values and our commitment to client satisfaction.”

Superior NW has provided services to the Seattle-area for the past eight years, offering residential tree care in the forms of tree preservation, consultation and diagnosis and hazardous tree removal. Anthony Moran, Owner and founder, said he chose Davey Tree because he liked the additional career and arboricultural training opportunities it offered his employees. Furthermore, Moran said the customers would see an increase in the number of services offered.

“While the logo and color of our trucks may change,” Moran said, “our emphasis on high quality tree care and exceptional service delivered by local arborists remains the same – and we have several exciting new services to offer.”
