In this Portager article, Sandee Reid, Davey’s vice president of corporate communications and strategic planning, shares the many features of Davey's SEED campus including the climbing center and various gardens.
North Mantua Street takes motorists in and out of Kent, where a giant dirt pile rises above Davey Tree’s Science, Employee Education and Development, or SEED, campus.
There’s no giant mole on the loose, said Sandra Reid, Davey’s vice president of corporate communications and strategic planning, assuring people gathered for a recent Tap Talk at North Water Brewing Co.
It, and two or three more near it, are the result of Davey’s efforts to sculpt the former Oak Knolls Golf Course and Franklin Elementary School grounds into what amounts to a tree college. Combined, the dirt piles that amount to some 43,000 cubic yards of soil will remain right where they are until 2025.
