10 Tree Care Companies Come Together for a Good Cause

Grab all tree care equipment! A Davey district manager brought a group of tree experts together to give Historic Fair Hill Burial Grounds a face-lift after a long winter.

More than 60 arborists from 10 different tree care companies visited Historic Fair Hill Burial Ground in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Penn-Del Chapter’s annual Day of Service on Arbor Day.

Historic Fair Hill is a 300-year-old Quaker burial ground, a site of national recognition since 1703. This beautiful 4.5 acre burial ground was not always in great shape—with little attention and care, the grounds became desolate and trash-ridden. In the 1990s the community wanted to do something to bring the crime-ridden city back to its original glory and decided to start the burial ground restoration initiative.

“Fair Hill is now a beautifully well-kept oasis in Philadelphia,” Miller says.

Chris Miller, Davey’s King of Prussia residential tree services district manager and president of the ISA Penn-Del Chapter, organized an impressive crew of arborists on Arbor Day to continue the restoration project of the grounds.

“It’s a way for us to give back, side-by-side with competitors for a common cause,” Miller says.

Davey’s five-member team planted trees, pruned, cabled and removed hazardous trees on the grounds, including a tree that was overhanging a bus stop near the grounds.

“It is great to be part of industry that can unite for a good cause,” Miller says. “You don’t see competing companies in other industries come together like this.”
