3 September/October 2018 | THE DAVEY BULLETIN TEAM WORK, PARTNERSHIPS PART OF DAVEY CULTURE Matt Fredmonsky A tree is an interesting study in team work. Think about it. No single leaf or root could carry the load alone that is required to build the kinds of arboreal giants we so admire. Rather, it takes many leaves, roots and branches – all working together – to deliver the sort of beautiful result like you'll find on page 20 of this issue, where we detail Davey's commitment to work alongside the Summit Metro Parks to care for a historic landmark tree. There are yet more examples of similar collaborative projects within this issue. You'll learn how Davey partnered with the TREE Fund to create a $250,000 educational endowment fund to support scientific research on urban tree care issues and community-based education. You can read about how the Davey Institute partnered with the Cleveland Metroparks to study ways to counter the mysterious beech leaf disease. There's also a story about how Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc., a Davey company, employees worked together with a non-profit educational training group to raise awareness of tree preservation among professionals in the construction industry. And several Residential/Commercial offices partnered with local groups to improve park landscapes within their communities. But examples of wonderful partnerships in this Bulletin aren't limited to external entities. There are several stories showcasing how, internally, Davey teams work together – just like the many leaves and roots of a mature tree. You can read about how several teams within Davey Resource Group together developed a solution to help a client in Montana calculate the many benefits of urban forests across Big Sky Country. Numerous departments worked together to launch the inaugural Davey Institute of Utility Sciences. That spirit of camaraderie mirrored the multi-faceted efforts, spanning several service lines and departments, reflected in Davey's presence at both the International Society of Arboriculture Annual Conference and Trade Show and the International Tree Climbing Championship. There's no shortage of examples showing the willingness of Davey employees to work together with their coworkers, clients and community members to build something better. If your Davey crew has an example that fits this mold of team work and partnerships, tell us! Send your collaboration stories via email to bulletin@davey.com. ROOT OF THE ISSUE " I believe that, for me, the Davey culture is family oriented. Once you start to work for Davey, they treat you like family. And that's what I try to instill in the employees I work with, is that we are family. You help me, I help you. The best way to treat people is how you'd want to be treated, like family.
