KENT, OHIO — The Davey Tree Expert Company announced the acquisition of Lawn Logic Landscaping, LLC, in Davie, Fla. This brings the company’s total number of acquisitions this year to five, following Maier Forest and Tree in Rochester, Minn., Superior NW Tree & Shrub Care, Inc., in Seattle, Wash., Cortese Tree Specialists in Knoxville, Tenn., and Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc., in Gainesville, Virg.
With the acquisition of Lawn Logic, Davey increases its presence in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Pat Covey, chief operating officer for U.S. operations, said Davey is committed to future growth — organically and through acquisitions.
“We will continue to focus on high-quality companies with customer demographics that are similar to our own, within markets where we want to grow,” he said. “Our goal is always to choose talented, safety-conscious employees intent on providing high-level customer service,” said Covey.
Davey Regional Manager Jason Bassler will work on integrating Lawn Logic into the Davey family. Also joining Jason in the new management team will be Assistant Branch Manager Manny Nassar.
Lawn Logic has offered many aspects of commercial landscape care to the SE Florida area for more than 10 years, including landscape maintenance, tree maintenance, fertilization and irrigation. Covey stressed that, for Lawn Logic’s clients, many things would remain the same. “Additionally, Lawn Logic employees will now have access to the Davey Institute, an industry-leading diagnostic and research facility to assist us with our landscaping needs,” Covey said.
“We are excited to welcome this company and its talented team into the Davey family,” Covey continued. “We have no doubt they will benefit from Davey’s diversified service offerings, technology and equipment resources, research and development capability and of course the culture of employee ownership.”
