SavATree Expansion Continues with Shearer/Penn Merge

Hamilton, NJ—SavATree announced a merge with New Jersey-based Shearer/Penn today that will expand their reach in South Central New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania. Merging with Shearer/Penn furthers SavATree’s goal to make environmentally-sensible tree, shrub and lawn care services available throughout the northeast.

Shearer/Penn has been providing local residents with quality tree care and relaible lawn care since 1932. As Shearer/Penn owner Sam Willard considered potential candidates with which to join, entrusting the business to a company with similar values and high quality standards was a major factor. Willard chose to join forces with SavATree because of their strong dedication to customer satisfaction and arboricultural excellence.

Daniel van Starrenburg, SavATree President commented, “Our growth is largely a reflection of SavATree’s reputation in the communities we serve and within the green industry. The SavATree team is passionate about the care of customer landscapes and delighted to partner with a company with such a rich history and commitment to environmental excellence.”
