Red Cedar is located in Wappingers Falls, New York.

SavATree, Bedford Hills, New York, a provider of tree, shrub and lawn care services, has acquired Red Cedar Arborists and Landscapers of Wappingers Falls, New York. This will be SavATree’s 36th branch.

Red Cedar was founded almost three decades ago by Steve Relyea. Red Cedar will continue to operate its landscape design, building and maintenance business while selling its arboricultural business to SavATree. Certified arborists Michael Barker and Owen Henning, and the team of specialists, will merge with SavATree, providing uninterrupted service to clients.

“We’ve shared a territory with Red Cedar in New York for a long time,” says Daniel van Starrenburg, CEO of SavATree. “They have an exceptionally knowledgeable team and we’re excited for years of friendly competition to become a strong partnership.”

With the merger, clients will have access to an expanded range of professional landscape services, including lawn health care, deer deterrence and organic treatment options.

“Our mutual commitment to high quality care will make SavATree and Red Cedar a great team going forward,” says Steve Relyea. “Our customers will be well taken care of.”
