Martin L. Davey President of The Davey Tree Expert Company, Inc., Kent, Ohio A personal message to the tree owners of America In 1925 nearly 600 Davey Tree Sur geons gave expert care to the trees of 13,000 clients, from Boston to Kansas City, and from Canada to the Gulf. A large per cent of these clients last year, and in the preceding years, have sent voluntary letters of commendation, in every case speaking in high praise of the men who had served them. Davey Tree Surgeons are certainly unusual men, of a uniformly high type. They are intelligent, industrious and conscientious. They are reliable. They are expert because they have been thor oughly trained, both practically and scientifically. This uniform high quality of men is not an accident. It is the result of a deliberate policy of selection and elimi nation, that has been carried on over a considerable period of years. We neither employ nor keep men who are lazy or dishonest or careless. If one of the wrong kind slips in, we get rid of him as soon as he is discovered. Those who are left with us, after the process of elimination has done its ef fective work, are an inspiring group of young American manhood who love their work, and who do it with rare skill, industry and devotion.
