Davey Commercial Grounds Management

Just thought I'd post a few pics of the properties we manage at my work. We are a division of the nationwide Davey Tree Expert Co.

The first two are of the Davey Corporate campus in Kent, OH. The second is part of a 3 mile stretch we manage in Solon, OH. The third is the 2010 72" Lazer Z that cut those lines.

Our branch has 6 maintenance crews and 3 landscape crews. Maintenance crews cut the grass and do weekly property maintenance. We run all Exmark equipment from 36" walk behinds to 52" vantages to 72" riders. There is probably a total of 20-24 mowers at our branch. My crew has a navigator a 52" vantage and the 72" rider pictured.

Nah I'm just a laborer for now next season I plan on being a foreman this is my first season with Davey. I'll try and get some more pics this week but we run almost all Ford trucks and have about 8 identical enclosed trailers and a few open ones.

Ya we are on the same large scale level as them almost. We compete against them a lot most of the time they underbid us which they can do when they don't pay their workers for drive time.

Okay thanks, it would suck to not get paid for drive time though.
