“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. Gallagher

“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.”

Three Circles of Protection
Keeping your trees and shrubs safe from
hungry deer requires Three Circles of Protection.
DeerTech, a member company of SavATree, offers a solution that combines sound and treatments, and then switches things up so the deer can't adapt. Our solution is far more effective then fencing or treatments alone. Product development and field experience on thousands of properties in high deer pressure areas has proven DeerTech's effectiveness as has our over 95% customer satisfaction rate!
Deer are determined, agile and smart animals. So how does DeerTech succeed where fencing or treating alone have failed? We don't underestimate this formidable opponent.
DeerTech developed an effective solution to the deer problem that does not harm deer, pets, or people, by employing biologists with expertise in deer behavior, partnering with Cornell University on deer research, and undertaking extensive field testing to create the best deer prevention solution on the market.
The Science of DeerTech
DeerTech's Three Circles of Protection creates an environment that is perceived as dangerous to deer by attacking all their senses. Here's how DeerTech's solution works:
- Sound: Our patented ultrasonic units emit sounds that compare to the equivalent of a 747 jet to a deer. It is imperceptible to the human ear, but to deer, ultrasonic frequencies blocks their greatest natural defense-hearing. This is disconcerting to deer. But, in most cases, not enough to keep hungry deer from eventually eating if they continuously observe no predators in the area and learn to listen through the sound.
- Treatments: Predator scents in combination with ultrasonic sound continue to make the deer feel unsafe eating in this area. Deer are built for speed and can simply outrun predators they hear sneaking up, particularly when they are strong (in the Spring, Summer, and Fall) and there is no snow or ice on the ground. But ultrasound in combination with
treatments changes all of that. Deer smell a predator, but can't
identify where the predator might be hiding or hear which direction
they may strike from. This makes it unsafe for them to bury their
eyes in your plants to eat. Additionally, applying treatments to the plants make them taste undesirable to deer so the whole, now scary process of eating your tasty plants becomes outright unappealing.
- Switch: Even the two circles of sound and
treatments, while significant barriers, can be penetrated over time as smart deer learn to adapt. This is why DeerTech switches things up monthly to keep the deer off-balance. Deer are creatures of habit. They don't like changes in their environment. New smells and new sounds scare them. A DeerTech field technician visits your property monthly to observe and adjust accordingly the system depending on the season, weather changes, and changes in the deer behavior on your property. Treating in a new place, or with a new scent creates a potentially dangerous environment that repels eating. It's important to understand that deer are as individual as people. It is up to the DeerTech field technician using their field expertise gained on hundreds of properties to identify your deer's behavior pattern and adjust the system to prevent the deer from destroying your plants.
Every property is unique and requires a customized solution to outsmart hungry deer. A DeerTech field technician comes to your property and does an assessment and free plan to meet your objectives.
The DeerTech field technician will work with you to identify which key areas of your landscaping you want to protect and what plants you or your landscaper might want to add. They will then design the sound, treating, and monthly service program that will be the best solution for protecting plants on your property.
