What our Clients say

Happy with you guys!
Bridgehampton Client March, 2019
We have been clients of Ray Smith & Associates for about 25 years, which is the best testimonial that we can think to give. All of the crew at Ray Smith, following the tenets of its founder, are experienced and thoughtful arborists and take particular care to inspect the property and do whatever is necessary to keeo things as beautiful and as natural looking as possible. They are on the job immediately after any storms or other tree-damaging weather, and they are altogether the best bunch of people you could have to keep your property as beautiful as it can be. Best of all, they assume and accept full responsibility for the maintenance of your grounds. I have recommended them to numerous friends.

After 20 years in a relationship with a landscaping company that seemed to be giving less priority to our needs, we transferred all of our business to Ray Smith Associates because we had been very pleased with the care given to our trees for many years. The total array of services now provided by Ray Smith Associates is costing a little more; but the overall performance and reliability have far exceeded our expectations, so we would recommend Ray Smith Associates to any homeowner looking for a company for landscaping, lawn care, etc.

We appreciate so much the experience and expertise of Ray Smith & Associates. We feel so confident that out trees, shrubs, and grounds have always had exellent care and maintenance. In particular, we value so highly the knowledge they have of growing things!! So important! They know their field so well and it shows in their sound advice. They also never do anything that isn't absolutely necessary. Great thoughtfulness and consideration given - and so much appreciated!

I have been working with Ray Smith & Associates since the early 80's and have been more than satisfied. Ray's expertise in tree care is without equal!

The irrigation/landscape crew could not have been more courteous and professional. They cleaned up everything, even what wasn't a result of their work. They could not have been better. Truly an A+. Thank you for following up, and checking in on things. I would trust this crew and their lead guy with anything they would undertake.

I have just had tree pruning and planting completed this past weekend by the incredible Ray Smith Team.  Don Kwarta and his team did the pruning and tree removal.  Jason Argentieri and his men worked at my property on Friday to install the plantings.
 
I would say that I am not an easy person to please.  I like when people are responsive and stand behind their work.  I am so incredibly pleased, from the moment they stepped foot on my property, till the very end, very beautiful results.
 
Both men follow-up and follow through.  They are interested in your comments.  They ensure that you are pleased and keep you in the loop. 
 
Outstanding work should be acknowledged.  I love what was done!

I am writing today to express my complete satisfaction with my recent experience with your company and its employees. I have been in the construction business most of my life and employed nearly 100 employees myself. I've also done many renovation projects on my own properties. Working with Jason Argentieri has been one of the best experiences I've had working with a contractor. He won me over from the beginning, winning a competitive bid process by understanding what I was looking for, presenting a complete and thorough proposal at a competitive price. He did an outstanding job overseeing the execution of the project while providing me with eyes on the project. This was greatly appreciated by me as I live in the Boston area and was managing this renovation from a distance. Often I had to trust his eyes and judgment which is quite difficult for someone life myself. He really went above and beyond in his effort. The end result was a beautifully landscaped yard and was finished on time, while dealing with a tight deadline. Also I must compliment your entire hard working crew including the supervisor John. Great job by all.

Thank you!

Recently, I asked Ray Smith to do some pruning and other tree work. This work has now been done, and, as always with Ray Smith, It was very well done, and as always Rebekah was efficient and knowledgeable. I have found Ray Smith to be an immense improvement over the internationally advertised arborists I had employed previously.

…I first met Ray Smith many years ago when he trimmed trees for my father. I remember my father liked him and thought he was very knowledgeable. I believe he was working for another company at that time. At some point Ray Smith became Ray Smith Assoc. They have trimmed my trees and removed trees for me over the years. I had two trees that I thought were dying. However, Ray came to my house and looked at them and assured me he could save them. I didn't believe him. That was several years ago. The trees are still there, and healthy. Great Job! Sometimes people have commented to me that they are expensive. So are lawsuits. Years ago my neighbor had a local guy trim his trees. Unfortunately, he fell out of the tree. He had no insurance. It cost my neighbor a fortune. My neighbor told me the story, since he didn't want me to make the same mistake he made. Luckily, my father taught me well. I use Ray Smith Assoc.

For the last few years I've used Ray Smith's service to combat this infestation. Always happy to see that my plants are surviving another season.
Ray Smith's technicians are quite professional, first by always knocking on the door to make me aware they're there. Secondly to info me which spraying they're doing and what chemicals that they're spraying and why. And lastly, to give me a heads up on when it would be safe to let my dog out into the yard.
