Seacoast Tree Care, LLC, an accredited, 14-year TCIA member company based in Stratham, New Hampshire, sold its utility-line-crew division to The Davey Tree Expert Company in July 2021. Dan Mello, owner of Seacoast Tree Care, says he wants to focus more on the company’s core market.
“Our specialty is tree preservation and plant health care, and we wanted to maintain our focus on those areas,” says Mello. “My top priorities in this sale, however, were our employees in the utility division and our customers, and ensuring they were both well taken care of. My research showed Davey Tree was the best fit for both groups.
“The utility industry is essential to our communities. Hospitals, first responders, citizens and businesses and municipalities of all sizes depend on safe, reliable electricity,” Mello notes.
“The acquisition of Seacoast’s utility division was a win for both companies, the clients and Seacoast’s employees,” says Pat Covey, chairman, president and CEO of Davey Tree. “Working with Dan and his team was a great experience, and we look forward to finding other opportunities in the future.”
