Davey's tree preservation and land restoration group is team of professional foresters, arborists and conservation experts serving the Mid-Atlantic region with specialized knowledge of the impact of urbanization on the natural environment.
When changes are drastic as with construction, mature trees can undergo stress which either cuts their life span short or makes them susceptible to insects and diseases. Such environmental factors are seldom understood or considered in the site planning and construction processes.
During the planning and construction phases of any site project, we offer a full range of consulting and on-site services in sustainable site development, tree and forest conservation and land restoration. Whether your objectives stem from private considerations, LEED® goals or the regulatory process, our team is prepared to present solutions. From pre-planning and feasibility studies, to site layout and design, to final construction documents, we do it all.
We provide insight, design alternatives and mitigation solutions for every type of development plan, private project, and management plan.
Serving the Mid-Atlantic region, including Washington D.C., Virginia, and Maryland.

Root pruning is one of the most common methods of mitigation prescribed for construction impacts. When needed, Davey provides an ISA Certified Arborist® to clean, cut and trim roots ahead of excavation.
We use a variety of root pruning technology to ensure all necessary tree roots are severed cleanly and correctly:
Most importantly, before each root pruning operation, our arborists confirm the need and proposed activities for each area before proceeding. Our clients trust us to minimize site disturbance and tree impact, while keeping their project on schedule.
Choosing the proper fencing is essential to preventing on-site intrusions and dependent on the traffic type, frequency and volume.
Our team can mount silt fencing to our existing fence or even install super silt fencing utilizing the same trench excavated for root pruning activities. Already equipped and on-site, our crew can handle all your required site fencing needs.
Root Protection Matting (RPM) and Root Aeration Matting (RAM) are essential tree protection and mitigation measures for almost all development and redevelopment sites. Both methods are easy to install, generally low in cost, and high in effectiveness. RPM and RAM also allows for increased flexibility in working and building around trees.
Davey’s team of experts can formulate and offer customized solutions for every situation using various products and combinations of product systems from various fields. With CAD-ready details and on-site installation, from the drawing board to construction, Davey will ensure proper design and installation of these unique systems.
