Our Approach

Our Approach

The Davey Tree Expert Company is built upon our corporate values:

We pride ourselves on our commitment to deliver unmatched excellence in client experience, employee strength, safety and financial sustainability. As an industry leader in arboriculture, horticulture and environmental services, we remain responsible stewards of our planet’s natural resources.

In 2016, we conducted a robust materiality assessment to identify the environmental, social and governance topics most significant to our internal and external stakeholders. These topics, which build upon our corporate responsibility (CR) pillars, serve as the foundation for our CR strategy.

Safe Business


Our behaviors and actions ensure that the safety of our employees and clients is a core value of our business.



As an employee-owned company, we create an environment to fully engage our employees in their work and our purpose as a company. We invest in them as they invest in us. Together, we grow personally and professionally.



We are leaders in leveraging our research, experience and people to address challenges facing the natural environment through product and service innovation.



We commit ourselves to environmentally responsible practices that sustain the planet, our communities and our business. We take pride in the fact that our environmental practices can complement our business growth.

Our material topics not only drive our daily activities but also shape our endeavors as we work to advance the green industry.
