The estate of Mr. Forrest F. Dryden, reproducedfrom an original painting in oil. The treatment of the trees was entrusted to the demonstrated skill of Davey Tree Surgeons Among prominent persons served by Davey Tree Surgeons are: HAROLD F. McCORMICK IRVIN S. COBB CHARLES L. TIFFANY DANIEL GUGGENHEIM CAPT. ISAAC E. EMERSON H. S. FIRESTONE MRS. T . J. EMORY MRS. JAMES ROOSEVELT JOHN DAVEY Father of Tree Surgery Do you really know what is the condition of your trees? Yes, they probably look all right to the untrained eye. But a fine valuable tree may appear healthy and still be rotting away on the inside or be ready to split to pieces in any high wind. On a certain large estate where a squad of Davey Tree Sur geons were at work, the Davey representative called the owner's attention to a beautiful tree with a badly splitting crotch. The owner, not realizing its serious condition, replied, "Let that one go for a while; there are some other ones I wish to take care of first." No amount of argument would cause him to change his decision. A heavy summer storm happened to come up a week or so later, and half of that tree crashed to the ground. This same thing is happening to thousands upon thousands of fine trees every year. And all because the owners, not realizing the dangerous conditions that may exist, neglect them just because the leaves are green and the trees may look healthy and safe. For the treatment of your priceless trees you will certainly require Tree Surgeons of unquestioned skill and responsibility. The Davey Organization of several hundred highly trained men of fine character has been built slowly and patiently to give the utmost in Tree Surgery. A careful examination of your trees will be made by appointment.
