Welcome to Cavalry Tree Service!
Serving Columbia and Greene Counties, we believe that you can judge quality of a company by the work it produces. As such, it is our continual effort to improve our methods and knowledge of arborculture so every job we do is the best it can possibly be.
Cavalry Tree is a single proprietorship owned by Aaron J. Smith. It was officially started as its own entity after his return from the service, but his professional experience dates back to adolescence. While still in high school, he went to work for his father full time 1997, he began his exposure to arborculture as a ground man. Dragging brush and felling forrest trees, he gained experience and grew to love being in the woods and overcoming the daily challenges that came with land clearing and hazard tree removal.
In January 2005, he set treework aside for a while to enlist in the United States Army where he would serve one tour of fifteen months deployed to Iraq. Returning to Ft. Hood Texas, his contract with the Army ended and he moved back to NY to Columbia County and took a job as a climbing foreman at a local tree service.
After becoming dissatisfied with the methods employed by some local tree care companies, Aaron decided to begin his own where he could ensure proper practices were followed to protect the arborcultural investments of his clients, safety of the work areas, and to guarantee that the trees he worked on would maintain their natural beauty and grace for years to come.
