    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.

    Davey tree is a large corporation, because we have a Davey Tree here in Ontario?

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