About Jeff & Davis Tree Management

Davis Tree Management is owned and operated by Jeff Davis. Jeff has been involved in the tree care industry for more than 30 years. Having worked on trees from Alaska to Southern California, Jeff has a well-honed set of skills. He owned and operated JD Tree and Davis Tree & Yard Care for over 13 years.

I built this website and maintain my own books and papers in regard to proper arboricultural techniques, safety, industry practices and excellent client relations. Important to me is that we have an open, honest and communicative relationship. I will never attempt to sell you a service which is not required for the "Scope of Work". I am forthright and always present the options which best suit my client's needs. I will do my best to see that your needs are always heard and respected.

I grew up in rural Santa Cruz County where I gained a deep appreciation for the natural environment. Gardening, fruit tree pruning, mowing, weeding and general hard work were part of my daily routine from a very early age. For fun, My brother and I would explore the local state park and climb the many redwood trees on my family's property. My parents, Tom and Joanne, owned and operated Aries Arts in Capitola, California for 30 years.

Trees are the largest living organisms on the planet. Healthy, vigorous trees improve the quality of life for all of us. The kindness and love they give to us and Mother Earth is almost immeasurable. They are a constant source of wonder and beauty. Trees deserve our respect and nurturance.

As an ISA Certified Arborist, I want to offer my knowledge and skill to you through good Arboricultural practices. I firmly believe that when we all enlighten ourselves with knowledge about our environment, we make the right choices about our trees. I can help with these decisions and with the work to be done. It is a great privilege to be part of preserving the natural environment for future generations. This work is extraordinary, dynamic and extremely rewarding. After all, I get to blend art & science every day.

"JD (Jeff) is a solid arborist and can recommend care as needed, or whether a tree needs removal. He doesn't make unnecessary work and suggest topping trees that might simply waste your money. He is very careful with his workers..."

Newcastle was founded in the 19th century. According to Transcontinental Railroad Landmarks the "Regular freight and passenger trains began operating over the first 31 miles of Central Pacific's line to Newcastle June 10, 1864, when political opposition and lack of money stopped further construction during that mild winter. Construction was resumed in April, 1865." The region is also in the vicinity of what was the cradle of "gold country", where in the mid-19th century a flurry of miners and gold prospectors searched for their fortune. During this time however, the town of Newcastle was known more for its orchards rather than abundant gold mines. The Newcastle post office opened in 1864. More about Newcastle, California.
