Jones Bros. Tree & Landscape, a tree care company that has served Memphis and Mid-South residents for decades, has joined The Davey Tree Expert Company.
Jones Bros. has roots going back to 1938 in the Memphis area. Davey’s Memphis office opened in 1990, giving both companies a combined 100-plus years of experience serving the market. In Memphis and throughout the Mid-South, Jones Bros. is known for providing residential tree assessments, tree care and tree removal to its clients. During their long history, the company has leveraged their experience and expertise along with emerging technologies and equipment to best care for Mid-South trees.
Thanks to their prestigious reputation, Jones Bros. has many notable clients, including a number of area Fortune 500 companies.
“Our clients will continue to receive timely, reliable and exceptional service,” said Bob Jurgens, owner and president of Jones Bros. since 1975. “Now, we’ll be able to offer them access to the Davey Institute, the company’s premier research, development and innovation division, so our arborists will be better able to diagnose their tree conditions. Our 30-plus employees will have the opportunity to become employee-owners of Davey as well.”
Davey Tree will merge its Memphis operations into the Jones Bros. office in Bartlett. Jurgens, a University of Florida forestry graduate, will serve as the district manager. He is an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist® and holds a commercial pesticide license.
Nathan Baker, district manager of Davey’s Memphis office, will join Michael Jurgens as assistant district manager. Both Baker and Michael Jurgens are ISA Certified Arborists®. “By joining forces with Jones Bros, our presence in Memphis will be stronger than ever. Working with Bob and the Jones Bros. employees will allow us to continue to put our clients first each and every step of the way,” Baker said.
“Jones Bros. is a welcome addition to the Davey Tree family,” said Jim Stief, Davey’s executive vice president, U.S. residential operations. “Like Davey Tree, Jones Bros. provides excellent tree care management while concentrating on the client experience and quality control. Now, we can focus on sharing our mission with the greater Memphis area – together.”
The Davey Tree Expert Company’s more than 8,600 employees provide tree care, grounds maintenance and environmental consulting services for the residential, utility, commercial and government markets throughout the U.S. and Canada.
