Headquartered in Kent, Ohio, The Davey Tree Expert Company is the nation's largest full-service tree care provider in the United States and Canada, with more than 7,500 employees. John Davey, who emigrated from England, started the Davey Company in 1880. Today, Davey has become one of the most influential employee owned companies in the country with a rank of eighteenth out of the top 100 employee owned companies with revenues over 700 million dollars.
As the company continues to grow, the need for an educated work force has become a mandatory initiative.
