The Davey Tree Expert Company recently announced the addition of Floral City Tree Service of Monroe, Michigan, to its family of brands.
Floral City provides residential and commercial tree and plant health care services in Monroe, Michigan, located between Detroit, Michigan, and Toledo, Ohio. Floral City’s employees will continue employment with Davey.
“The decision to join the Davey family was based on the numerous benefits that will be provided to our clients and employees,” said Steve McCollum, owner of Floral City. “Davey, just like Floral City, is committed to providing its clients with high-quality tree and shrub care, exceptional service and has a philosophy of caring for its clients’ properties as if they were their own. Davey also has a leading diagnostic and research facility, the Davey Institute, that will be a huge benefit to our clients’ trees and landscapes.”
Dave Bargerstock, Davey’s operations manager, Great Lakes West, Residential/Commercial (R/C) services, said Floral City has a work culture that is very similar to Davey’s, so Steve and his team should feel right at home. Bargerstock added, “I’m looking forward to getting the Floral City team involved in our educational resources and engaged in our employee-ownership opportunities that are core to our company culture.”
The Davey Tree Expert Company was established in 1880 and is headquartered in Kent, Ohio. With 11,000 employees, Davey Tree is the eighth largest employee-owned company in the U.S.
