Management Approach

103-1, 103-2, 103-3

Davey’s vision is to create and deliver sustainable solutions, and continuing to emphasize and invest resources in innovation is essential to realizing this.

Our commitment to innovation is mutually beneficial for our company and our clients, turning environmental research and innovation into cost savings and revenue generation. In 2020, Davey continued its commitment to innovation by implementing sonic tomography as a part of our services. Sonic tomography is a non-invasive technology used to detect decay in trees. Sound waves are transmitted through a tree and their velocities are used to determine the amount of decay present. Using this information, trained personnel can more accurately determine the risk a tree poses in the landscape. This service is currently offered through the Davey Institute throughout the United States and Canada.

The More Trees We Have, the Less We Stress

The longer you stay in a park filled with trees, the less stress you feel.
