You can trust us with your legacy.

Since 1978, SavATree has been committed to an environmentally sensible approach to professional tree, shrub, lawn and landscape services. We take tremendous pride in our people, in the services we provide, and in the value we offer to our customers.

With that philosophy in mind, SavATree has been reaching out to like-minded companies exploring exit strategies and considering the benefits of partnering with an acquisition specialist with a management style that is more flexible and more entrepreneurial than that of larger consolidators.

At SavATree, we respect what you’ve built. We want to partner with you and help you transition to wherever your life may lead. Many sellers stay on with us for years, finding fulfilling careers among our management and sales teams, while others choose to move on to new endeavors. Either way, our goal is to make sure that you receive an attractive financial package; that your employees’ careers continue to thrive, and that your customers enjoy a seamless transition coupled with exceptional service that exceeds their expectations.

What does SavATree look for in a potential partner?

  • A Shared Vision: A committment to an environmentally sensible approach to professional tree, plant healthcare and lawn care services.
  • A Deep Leadership Team: Seasoned, well-established leaders and highly engaged employees who enjoy training and developing new talent and have the potential to grow within our organization.
  • A Proud Legacy: A stable, long-standing customer base, strong and capable field crews and respect in the community.
  • Prime Market Locations: Established, well-maintained facilities and assets in desirable locations.

What does SavATree bring to the table?

  • We provide a seamless transition for employees and customers – your company is in good hands.
  • We are flexible in the way we structure transactions and entrepreneurial in our management style.
  • We have a proven track record of making competitive offers to high-quality businesses.
  • We are a well-capitalized company that maintains an aggressive acquisition strategy.
  • We welcome conversations with business owners in the early stages of evaluating their options.

Spend more time doing what you love

One of the most common challenges faced by business owners of any size is being “stretched too thin.” Although they may enjoy the sales and/or operational side of the business, they find themselves bogged down in various administrative issues like safety and regulatory compliance, accounting and taxes, Human Resources & Employee Benefits, IT, etc.

SavATree can help. We can take the ‘back-office’ functions off your plate so you can focus on what you enjoy doing most – sales and operations. We have full-time support staff in all the major functional areas that can otherwise distract you from your true mission: growing your business.

SavATree can provide that succession plan

Often, there are different objectives between generations in family businesses. For instance, the older generation may be ready to take cash from the business now while the younger generation may be primarily interested in growing the business to maximize future value.

As an established, entrepreneurial company, SavATree presents opportunities for both older and younger business owners to reap the financial rewards commensurate with their objectives and efforts.

Every great business needs a succession plan

“We considered selling the company a few years back; but the M&A firm we were speaking with did not share our vision. Knowing the SavATree brand and their success in growth and vision for the future were key factors in changing our decision to sell.”

“Once I made the decision to sell my business, I spoke with several firms. Ultimately, it came down to this question: Which company can I count on to provide not just jobs, but long-term careers and growth opportunities for my 80 employees – a place they could call home?”

“The most important consideration in selling my business was to choose a company whose core philosophies I believe in – a  company I can stand behind. That’s SavATree. And because I wanted to remain active in the industry, my decision to join Sav-A-Tree has been even more rewarding.”
