3 November/December 2023 | THE DAVEY BULLETIN JOHN DAVEY REMEMBERED This year marked 100 years since the passing of John Davey in 1923, after he had turned his namesake company into a budding success. In commemoration, the Bulletin has touched on different aspects of his life and business. In this issue, we return to John's birthplace in England as we wrap up our remembrance. Bulletin contributing writer Steph Donovan traveled to visit family in England and made a stop at John's birthplace. Turn to page 31 to learn about where John Davey was born. Spoiler alert: Not much has changed since he was born there in 1846! WHAT'S YOUR SAFETY MINDSET? Employees in Residential/Commercial services have attended Human and Organizational Performance trainings organized by the health and safety department throughout the year. The Bulletin team talked to employees who attended and heard some great safety suggestions from attendees. For Amaury Martinez, sales arborist, South Houston office, safety is about balance. "We're not only talking about the negatives when someone has a close call, we're discussing the positive things," Martinez said. For Josslynn Barker, sales and service coordinator, West Denver office, safety is about communication. "It's a daily discussion," she said. Read more safety stories on page 8. SEED CAMPUS PROGRESS Construction has been moving at a fast pace at the Davey SEED (Science, Employee Education and Development) Campus in Kent across from the corporate office. Turn to pages 14 and 15 for an update on construction and an overview on some of the campus' sustainability components. Watch a new video update of the project on Davey.com/SEED. BOB ROSS PROTÉGÉ? "I love trees ... they are one of my favorite subjects to paint." You might think that quote is from Bob Ross, the oil painter who became famous for his long-running show on PBS that aired in the 1980s and 1990s. Actually, that quote is from Jason Gaskill, assistant district manager, Wilmington office, but it's definitely something Ross could have said. Gaskill turned his garage into an art studio, and painting is one of his passions. Turn to page 27 to learn about Jason's other interesting art hobby.
