Davey Minneapolis Tree Services Support Day of Service at National Cemetery

January 26, 2015

Because friends, relatives, and other visitors populate national cemeteries and memorials in remembrance of loved ones all year round—particularly around Veterans’ Day—it’s important to ensure the landscapes they trod on are safe, healthy and respectful of those resting there. Learn more about the tree services Davey entities volunteered to provide at two sites last fall.

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Fort Snelling National Cemetery’s heavy population of boulevard trees lends itself to the regular tree maintenance it receives during Minnesota Society of Arboriculture’s annual Day of Service.

Last fall was the first time Davey’s South Minneapolis residential tree services crew got involved with the Day of Service on Veterans’ Day, and it was the first time the event received a good volunteer turnout in a while.

“It feels nice to give back to veterans on Veterans’ Day,” says Ryan Gustafson, sales arborist for Davey’s South Minneapolis tree services, adding some Davey employees are veterans themselves.

Gustafson, an executive board member for the Minnesota Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), had wanted to see Davey get involved in the local community and urban forest of Minneapolis. Davey’s Robert Raymond and Pat Worden joined Jon Schmidt and Emily Mumford from S&S Tree, a Davey Company, at the site to prune honey locust trees and remove some ash trees. 

Read more about the involvement of Maier Tree & Lawn, a Davey Company, at the first Day of Service at Soldiers Field Memorial in Rochester, Minnesota, later this week.

If you need tree pruning and tree removal, schedule a free consultation with your local, Davey arborist.
