BrightView acquires Smith’s Tree Care


BrightView has acquired Smith’s Tree Care, a tree care service provider based in Newport News, Virginia. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 2005 by Dave Smith, Smith’s Tree Care offers a variety of services including tree care, tree trimming and pruning, tree removal and stump grinders. The addition of Smith’s Tree Care complements and strengthens BrightView’s existing tree care expertise in the larger Hampton Roads market.

“The acquisition of Smith’s Tree Care in a solid market like Hampton Roads further strengthens our strong M&A strategy,” said Andrew Masterman, President and CEO of BrightView. “Dave and Uwe Troxler’s hard work over the past 17 years has made Smith’s Tree Care one of the leading tree service companies in the market. We look forward to welcoming them to the BrightView Tree Care Services family as we work together to provide exceptional quality service and continue to position ourselves as the region’s preferred commercial tree care provider.”

“Smith’s Tree Care has had the pleasure of serving the Hampton Roads community and providing world-class tree care services for nearly 20 years,” said Smith. “Looking ahead, joining forces with BrightView was a logical next step that puts us in the best position to expand and grow the business. I am forever grateful to our talented arborists and tree experts and am confident that they will continue to thrive as valued members of the BrightView family.”
