Swingle – Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care, October 2017
My company, Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape was the #1 provider in the Denver market when I began considering potential partners for selling my business. We grew Swingle through a combination of acquisitions and singular focus on customer service excellence – so I was looking for a company with a similar philosophy. SavATree is that company. They have a competitive financial package for owners as well as career paths for employees. Their leadership team and systems are primed for acquisitive growth as they have integrated dozens of acquisitions throughout the United States. SavATree understands that brand transitions must be done with care to maintain brand value in the markets you serve. SavATree’s commitment to customers, employees and communities will allow you to provide continuity and opportunities to those that have helped you succeed.

Integrity Tree Service, January 2019
In many ways selling your business is a “walk of faith.” You trust that the company you’ve chosen will do the right thing throughout the transaction and beyond. I know I chose the right company to shepherd our legacy into the next couple of decades. I find myself bragging on SavATree to my wife and daughter, often mentioning the commitment to excellence through continuous improvement and other Lean Sigma principles. There is consistency and transparency from the top down, with leadership walking the walk and talking the talk. I know we are in good hands, and the experience has been so positive I’m rethinking my plans and considering extending my time with SavATree.

St. Croix Tree Service, February 2014
St. Croix, Minnesota
I recently deposited my last payment from SavATree representing the final proceeds from the sale of my business, St. Croix Tree – an industry leader in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market. I have done a number of deals in my life with mixed results, however the sale to SavATree would rate near the top. It was important to me that the business continue with a focus on employees, clients and reputation. SavATree has exceeded my expectations on all accounts.

Town and Country, March 2011
Promise made = promise kept. Looking back on my merger experience with SavATree, what I value most was the honesty that was woven throughout my dealings with Daniel. I think every owner has a few specific things that they need in a deal to make it work. Daniel kept his word on the things that mattered most to me. The payout formula was fair, and provided the financial assurances that I needed. I have found many advantages in being an arborist versus an owner. Mainly I am glad to be rid of the headaches of equipment breakdowns, payroll hassles and paperwork. I enjoy focusing on my clients and an improved lifestyle with less stress. And now I can take real vacations knowing that the business is being cared for in my absence. I have a higher quality of life now, and enjoy what I am doing. My team also stayed on with SavATree, with several still working for the company and a few retiring. For me, selling to SavATree was a good move
