“We appreciate the time and attention that your Arbor Patrol team takes to maintain the overall health and appearance of the trees, bushes and general grounds. As they say, you can only have one first impression and the impression the grounds make on both residents and visitors alike is always positive thanks to your caring maintenance. Just as the trees continue to grow and blossom under your care, we hope our relationship with SavATree does the same.”William Toedter
“After four different unsatisfactory visits with so-called arborists, I found SavaTree... I was most impressed with the professionalism of David [my arborists] and his colleagues. They were most knowledgeable, fair with their assessment about what needed to be done, yet very attuned with what my concerns. I highly recommend them without any hesitation. In a field where there is an abundance of folks looking to take advantage of consumers, SavaTree, David and crew strike me as incredibly honest and proud arborists who do a fantastic job.”Debbie Durkin

“I am a new and highly satisfied customer of SavATree. For 50 years I have lived in the same house in the Greenhaven area, and in that time I have never had a tree company that gave me such fine service.”Joan Kleinbard
“It is always a pleasure working with SavATree as your company provides the best plant, tree and lawn health care that we have experienced at the Ives. Always professional, courteous and responsive to our needs, SavATree’s services have provided our employees and patrons with pleasant outdoor experiences in an insect free environment for several years.”Kathleen G.

“For over 14 years, I have entrusted the care of my trees, plants and orchard to SavATree. Their highly qualified arborists have exacting standards and understand how to maintain the health and form of the various species of trees on my property. I admire the artistic skill that goes into the pruning and love the colorful blossoms, fruits and foliage that flourish as a result of their impeccable care.”Martha Stewart
"Efficient, high quality, professional competence — all at a competitive sum. At first [Alison] Pottage won me over by her solid knowledge as an arborist, then the crew did their job to her specifications on our 60 to 70 foot oaks within a remarkable period of time -- and left the grounds quite clean.”

Tick Control Treatments and Prevention
SavATree Offers Deer and other Tick Control Options
SavATree's highly experienced arborists are also knowledgeable when it comes to tick control – including deer tick control. Many deer ticks carry, and spread, bacteria that cause Lyme disease. If you are concerned about Lyme disease and the presence of deer ticks in your yard, our arborists can apply a treatment to the ecotone areas (zone between lawn areas and wooded areas – this is the preferred habitat of the deer tick) and, if necessary, to the lawn area as well that will provide an immediate reduction in the number of ticks on your landscape.
According to published research, approximately 90% of deer ticks on a property will be found in the ecotone areas with less than 2% found in lawn areas.
Ticks can also be carried into your landscape by animals such as deer, birds and small rodents. Integrated tick control treatments that concentrate on both the lawn perimeter areas and tick-carrying mice provide the greatest protection by quickly reducing the number of active ticks in your yard. We recommend the use of Damminix to reduce tick populations without harming wildlife.
Organic Tick Control
For customers who prefer a green solution to managing tick populations in their landscape, SavATree is pleased to offer Organic Tick Control treatments. Our organic solutions use active ingredients such as cedar oil to kill ticks on contact and provide residual control that lasts from 30-60 days. Applications are performed by covering the entire property starting with the ecotone area that divides the yard and tree line. This particular area is known to be the preferred habitat of the deer tick. A light mist is also applied to the lawn. Organic treatments offer a minimum risk solution that does not require EPA registration because its ingredients are considered to be non-hazardous.
Unconventional Deer Tick Control Methods
Tick control can be achieved by focusing on the white-footed mouse, a favorite host of the deer tick. Professional placement of Damminix in mouse habitats is very effective in reducing Lyme disease-carrying deer tick populations on your property.
Damminix consists of cardboard tubes containing cotton balls laced with an ingredient that is very effective at killing ticks while leaving the mice unharmed. These tick control tubes are placed in strategic areas in the landscape and surrounding wooded areas. The mice bring the cotton balls back to their burrows to line their nests. The ticks feeding on the mice then come into contact with the treated cotton and are quickly eliminated. We recommend Damminix for tick control treatments because it does not harm the mice or wildlife in your landscape and is totally biodegradable.
