Our history

Wallingford Tree Service is a family owned and run company. John Cervero started the company in April of 1991. John’s arbor-cultural experience dates back all the way to when he was a young boy. He started out working with a family friend who was an experienced arborist.   As he grew older John took his developing love of trees, and got a job at an apple orchard. His duties were tending the trees, pruning, spraying, planting and fruit picking. After he finished high school he got a job at a commercial arborcultural company doing anything and everything for the care of the trees. He later realized that he could do a better job on his own.

On April 1991, Wallingford Tree Service went into business. Started as a one man crew with a pickup truck. John later expanded his business and invested in equipment.
