More about Riley Smith
Riley Smith was born in Washington, D.C. and was raised in the surrounding suburbs. His love for the outdoors was stoked at an early age during numerous outings with his family camping, back country hiking and during adventurous canoe trips navigating many of Maryland's waterways. He spent three years of his childhood living overseas in Japan. While there his adventures didn't stop. His family continued their exploration and climbed Mt. Fuji, reaching the 12,389 ft. summit. This collection of life experiences led him to attend the University of Tennessee where he obtained a BS in Forestry Wildlife and Fisheries Science. There he gained a deeper understanding of the natural world around him. Upon graduation he took a position with Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources as a watershed forester and rose to the ranks of Forestry Coordinator for the Chesapeake Bay. To broaden his knowledge of trees in the urban environment he decided to branch out into the arboricultural world. Today, Riley is a Certified Arborist Representative. He is a licensed tree expert, ISA Certified Arborist, Qualified Tree Risk Assessor, and Plant Health Care Specialist. He is proud of his achievements and is ready to utilize his knowledge of the urban forest ecosystem to his friends, clients, and coworkers.
What Our Customers Are Saying About Riley Smith
Riley Smith has been a 'find' for us. He has treated us with total courtesy and respect in every single encounter. His advise and educational commentary is spot on.
Thomas M., Kensington, MD
Riley Smith could not have been more cooperative and helpful. Because it was a drizzly day he was able to divert a team to handle my small job since their larger job was not possible, and I got my trees taken down the same day. When they were done you could not tell they had been there, everything was neat and clean. I would definitely recommend Bartlett.
Caroline R., Derwood, MD
Riley Smith and Hector were knowledgeable, professional, friendly, good communicators, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. I did not talk with the crew member who ground the stump, although he was punctual and left the site clean and tidy.
Linda D., Kensington, MD
Riley has worked hard to repair my complete disappointment with the trimming job from last winter. Riley is a concerned and honorable representative. I wish he had been in charge the last two years.
