BEDFORD HILLS, N.Y., Jan. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- SavATree, an industry leader in tree, shrub, and lawn care, has announced its acquisition of Integrity Tree Service of Phoenix, Arizona. The acquisition gives SavATree entry to an attractive market through a partnership with the premier tree service business in greater Phoenix. With existing operations in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Upper Midwest, and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States, SavATree broadens its footprint with the addition of Integrity Tree Service in the Southwest, which will be the company's 34th branch location.
"Expanding into Arizona has been a goal of ours for a long time," said Daniel van Starrenburg, CEO of SavATree. "We just needed to form a partnership with the right company. Integrity Tree Service has an excellent team, with a deep knowledge of the Southwest's landscape conditions and tree care needs. Together, we'll be able to offer clients an even wider range of services to preserve and enhance their trees and shrubs."
Integrity Tree Service was founded in 1989 by John and Kim Eisenhower and is Arizona's first Accredited Tree Service by the Tree Care Industry Association.
