SavATree started in 1978 with just one truck and a desire to combat the devastation from gypsy moths in the town of Bedford, New York. In 1985, current Executive Chairman Daniel van Starrenburg teamed up with original founder Ralph Robbins, who remains with the company to this day, to build a best-in-class tree care company with a focus on customer service. Over the years, the company has expanded throughout the country, and has added lawn care, deer deterrence, tick management and holiday lighting to our portfolio.


An environmentally sensible approach to tree, shrub and lawn care has distinguished SavATree from the very beginning. The company was founded on the concept of maximizing landscape health and beauty utilizing the least intrusive, most environmentally friendly products and practices available in the delivery of plant health care, lawn care and general tree care. We are proud to partner with various NGOs throughout the country on community canopy management and other sustainability initiatives.
