For tree care professionals like Jason Evans, the appeal of climbing trees didn’t stop after the first feat.
Jason rekindled his childhood memories when he took a tree climber position midway through college. Since then, he’s kept climbing and has become the district manager of Davey’s East Bay office.

If you live in an area where tornadoes or hurricanes happen, you already know how important it is to prep early in the season.
Every proactive step you take now can reduce wreckage, costs and risk later on. Keep in mind, hurricanes and tornadoes are unpredictable, intense storms. The higher the wind speed, the more likely trees will fail.

Flashback to 2002. A tiny, exotic beetle, identified as emerald ash borer, was just discovered in Michigan.
By 2009, EAB killed an estimated 58 million ash trees in thirteen states, according to Dr. Leah Bauer of the USDA.

We all have one tree in our yard – or from our childhood home – that holds the most special place in our heart. The one you planted right when you moved in or the big, stately oak your children used to climb. The one tree you can’t help but smile when you see.
