At Davey, training is part of the job. We have a long tradition of both classroom and on-the-job training, since the beginning of our company. That tradition of expertise and training is more than just part of our past; it is how we define ourselves as a company. Our programs are constantly evolving to accommodate new challenges and support a culture of learning that ensures our employees are highly skilled and able to diagnose and treat every property owner’s needs.
We do this because Davey is a learning and teaching organization committed to providing solutions. This culture is perhaps best demonstrated during the Davey Institute of Tree Sciences (D.I.T.S.), which is Davey’s flagship training program in biological sciences, safety, tree, and plant care and management techniques. D.I.T.S. is spotlighted in the video above and it’s just one example of how we significantly invest in training our teams to ensure the best techniques are used consistently at every job site, every time.
Specialized training and research in the field of arboriculture are at the center of plans for developing a 174-acre former golf course into the new Davey East Campus.
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Davey employees were busy sharpening their skills. To promote social distancing, many classes were held virtually.
