Ray Smith's tree care career started at age 20. Later, in 1972, he was made partner of Eastern Tree Experts here in Southampton. During this time, Ray was inspired while attending seminars by Dr. Alex Shigo who developed most of the principles that have become central to modern arboriculture. In 1993, Ray established Ray Smith & Associates, Inc. with just 3 people and one pickup truck. Since then the company has grown to 50+ employees and provides full landscape care services. Ray serves as the Director of Horticulture for LongHouse Reserve a 16 acre arboretum & sculpture garden.
