WICKERSHAM EQUINOX HOTEL ANTHONY J. DREXEL BIDDLE, JR. W. C. LELAND MRS. ANDREW CARNEGIE U. S. NAVAL ACADEMY MARTIN BECK CLEVELAND MUSEUM OF ART JOHN DAVEY Fatherof Tree Surgery THOSE fine old trees, those towering monarchs that stand vigil over your estate-how have they withstood the winter? The howling blasts have rocked their stalwart trunks, tons of ice and snow have dragged down their sturdy limbs-only the physically perfect ones have a chance to escape serious injury, and some of them are harmed. Perhaps some of your trees-trees that you have learned to love, trees that are an integral part of your land scape-have been branded with premature death. Bravely they will put forth buds and tiny leaves, will simulate the appearance of health and strength-and yet be suffering from fatal injuries both visible and invisible. Last winter's tearing winds may have weak ened their structures, internal decay may be at work-and yet you may remain unsuspecting until some later storm sends them crash ing to the earth. Only the skilled Tree Surgeon, the seasoned practitioner who knows the anatomy of the tree and its troubles as the physician knows the human body, can be sure. The demonstrated skill and established responsibility of Davey Tree Surgeons is your safeguard. Their years of wide public service, their methods of proved value, their thorough training in an organization of recognized stability, will fulfill your highest expectations. They have satisfied the most exacting clientele in America. A careful examination of your trees will be made by appointment.
