Tree Services

  • Damage, disease or safety concerns can turn some trees from an asset into a liability. When this occurs, Davey’s certified and bonded arborists can be trusted for safe and efficient tree removal service in Washington D.C.

    Look for these signs as an indicator it may be time to remove:

    • Heaving soil at the base of the trunk and beneath the canopy
    • Decay-producing fungi, such as mushrooms, growing at the base of the trunk
    • Chipped or peeling bark and cracks in the trunk
    • Cavities in the trunk or large scaffold branches
    • Dead or hanging branches in the upper crown
    • Fine twigs without living buds near the ends of branches


  • Tree trimming service is an important tool to help sustain a tree’s health and retain its natural appearance. Davey assesses your tree’s trimming needs from removal of unhealthy limbs to disease reduction. Contact your local Davey arborist today for a free consultation for tree trimming services in Washington D.C.

    These signs can indicate when it’s time for professional tree trimming:

    • Your tree appears too close to power lines
    • Branches are close or are touching your home
    • You see dead, unsightly or loose hanging branches
    • Your trees have not been trimmed or pruned in the last three years
    • You would like your tree shaped for a more aesthetic curb appeal
  • Trees and shrubs in an urban setting loose nutrients in a number of ways, but applying fertilizer is a way to restore vitality.  Our slow-release fertilizer Arbor Green PRO® replaces nutrients and improves resistance to disease and stressful weather while maximizing the beauty of your trees and shrubs.

  • Plant Health Care is the best solution for maintaining your property’s trees over the long haul; it’s total health care for your trees. Our PHC program is designed for clients who are looking to save time, money and frustration by being proactive in the health of their trees and landscape.

    Some of our plant health care solutions include:

    • Air spade instruments to relieve soil compaction
    • Soil remediation techniques
    • Supplemental nutrition
    • Supplemental irrigation
    • As well as other tree remediation tools

    Contact your Davey arborist for more information on how a PHC program can help you reach your property goals.

  • We are so impressed with the knowledge, training, professionalism and decipline of each member of the tree removal crew responsible for removing our seven trees. The tree top removal process demonstrated their precision, teamwork and management skills. Not only did each individual exhibit the best professionally; but, as a team they performed flawlessly.

    Charlotte B. New Market, MD

    I wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the tree work and the men who were here. I have had lots of tree work here and would call you again in a flash. The men knew what they were doing and when needed, worked with me on the aesthetics which they understood. They clearly were well trained in safety which I valued as well. A job very well done.
