SavATree announced a merger with Downey Trees Inc. of Atlanta, a full-service company with offices in Norcross, Ga., Savannah, Ga. and Destin, Fla. This marks SavATree’s first entry into the Florida market and expands its Georgia presence into Savannah. Both Downey Trees Inc. and SavATree’s current Norcross branches will combine to form a stronger metro-Atlanta presence. SavATree now has 43 branch offices serving customers in 23 states.
Since 1984, Downey Trees Inc. has focused on serving commercial clients, property managers and homeowners’ associations, becoming one of the largest local companies in the Southeast. Services include tree care, plant health care, vegetation management, retention pond management, and emergency response services. In addition to current offerings, clients will now have access to a wider range of services including professional lawn care, tick and mosquito treatments, deer deterrents, organic options and consulting services.
“With the addition of these three locations we are able to develop and expand our market presence further into the Southeast region, which has been a priority for some time,” noted SavATree Executive Chairman Daniel van Starrenburg. “We’re excited to accomplish this by joining forces with Downey Trees. We welcome their dedicated, knowledgeable team and believe the union with our existing Norcross office will be beneficial for both teams and customers. We are further excited to have a new entry into Savannah, Georgia and the Panhandle area of Florida.”
Owner Paul Bagley stated, “We are very excited about this merger. SavATree shares our philosophy about quality, values and standards, so it’s clear that our two expert teams put together will yield an even stronger, more impactful result for our clients.”
