Meet the Precision Organics Team
Get to know the names and faces behind the Precision Organics name.
David Fritz, Owner, Partner and President
Since the early 1990’s, David Fritz began to believe in the idea that natural, organic products can perform as well or better than man-made products for equal or lower cost to the marketplace. With a growing belief and over 30 years of experience in the green industry, David honed his development and executive skills working with companies large and small. He gained expertise in innovation, strategic development and market leadership positioning in working with Safer and Ringer products, Toro agronomic products, Rainbow Treecare products and consulting with companies such as Necessary Organics and Davey Tree. As one of the two co-founders of Precision Organics, David provides the growth vision, oversight and financial management for the continuous development of the company. Over the last 6 years, Precision has had sustained growth averaging well over 50%, with some of those years greater than 90%. Recently, Precision won two industry awards – one for highest sustained growth for three years and one for the highest annual growth rate. But, as David says, the competition never rests – “leadership is always on”. Outside of work, David enjoys traveling, spending time with family and bird hunting.

FIRST HAND FEEDBACK
We have been using the C20 product in our new landscape installations for about a year and have notice a reduction in plant loss resulting in less warranty claims.
As with any new product I was skeptical, but C20 has quickly proven itself. After seeing results in our landscape installations we quickly began incorporating it into our turf program. We saw dramatic improvements in trouble areas with heavy shade and drainage issues. We now use C20 during sod applications as well as with fall aeration and overseeding. It's an amazing product!!!
This is our first year incorporating C-20 in with seasonal annual installation protocol, and the flowers absolutely loved it!
A game changing new industry standard. (We) will never plant another tree, shrub, or perennial without it again.
C20 treatments are a wonderful add-on service that compliments any of our lawn programs well. We love how easy it is to schedule and service our customers and our clients love the results it provides.
Rather than replace declining spruce in a one-year-old planting we used C20 on the trees to be removed. Within one season the trees recovered and saved us the money and headache of buying, removing and replanting!
I have seen the dramatic results when using C20 as part of an after-care program for newly planted trees. This product is quickly becoming an integral option when deciding on standards of care for our trees.
We have incorporated C20 into our lawn care program. Our customers are amazed that they are now able to have a great lawn in areas where it previously would not grow.
We treated six very stressed mature bur oaks with C20. The trees were in decline with multiple dead branches, foliar chlorosis and wilting leaves. When we examined the trees the following spring, we observed that the trees had stopped dying back and all the new foliage looked vigorous. We now use C20 on many of our sites.
