Mike Nezworski – Owner / Estimator/ Arborist RM-8801A
Mike grew up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin and Michigan. After moving to Wyoming in 2006 he met his wife. They moved to Billings, MT in 2013 with their son Collin, while Mike worked in the construction industry for 4 years. During this time, he and his wife had their daughter, Mackenzie. He started cutting trees for friends in 2014 just to help out and make a little extra money. In 2016 CM Tree Service and Removal was born and in 2020 he purchased an existing tree service company and expanded the business. Since then, the company has grown from a couple friends working weekends with a single boom truck and trailer, to an ever-expanding company with 7 employees and industry leading equipment including a grapple truck and crane. Mike’s vision for CM Tree Service has been growth from the start. Mike’s biggest goal with CM Tree Service is to be a good steward in the community. Careers for local families, donations and projects for local organizations that impact our community, and keeping Billings trees healthy and beautiful for decades to come.

She is an active member of her church serving on the kids’ ministry team and on big projects at her kid’s school. She enjoys gardening, spending time working on house projects and being with friends and family. If Chandra had a superpower, it would be to teleport because she likes to get places fast!
Zach Munn – Team Lead / Cutter / Climber
Zach has been in the tree industry for 15+ years. He and his wife have 7 children and volunteering and serving the local community is a passion and a way of life for the Munn family. They are heavily involved in foster care and adoption. Zach also serves at his church as a Sunday school teacher. But one of his favorite days of the year is Arbor Day, when he volunteers at the city level teaching 4th graders on how to identify trees in the community. Their family keeps busy working their land and raising goats and chickens. If Zach could meet anyone living or dead, he would want to meet his younger self so he could tell him to invest in Bitcoin when he had the chance.

Tom is originally from Northern New York, spent some time in Colorado and then moved to Montana. He has been in the tree service industry for 7 years and joined the CM Tree Service family in the Summer of 2022. Tom loves time in the trees but when he’s not working, he enjoys snowmobiling, hiking, and camping with his girlfriend and his dog Barretta. Most people don’t know it… but Tom loves westerns and if he could meet anyone, it would be Wyatt Earp so he could know what the Wild West was really like.
Victor Villalva – Climber
Victor has spent much of his career in the construction industry before joining CM Tree Service in Feb 2023. Originally from Texas, then Colorado and now Montana Victor and his wife enjoy spending time together with their daughter’s mountain biking, rock climbing and gardening. We have learned not to let Victor’s quiet demeanor fool us. He’s super sharp, quick witted and very funny! If Victor could have any super power, he would want to fly… because, it’s FLYING! Luckily for him he has found a place where he can fly daily… from a crane ball or through the trees, Victor is a superhero in orange.
Jaiden Gray – Cutter / Maintenance Forman
Jaiden moved to Montana in 2023 and joined the CM Tree Service team. He is one of the younger members of our team and brought a work ethic that most men his age haven’t even thought about. Even though Jaiden has only been in the industry a short time, he already has set some amazing goals of getting certified to operate the crane and become a certified arborist. Personally, he looks forward to owning his own land and building a shop and home here in Montana.
When Jaiden is not working in the trees, on equipment or controlling the local racoon population, he enjoys hunting, fishing, boating, riding dirt bikes and camping with his 2 dogs. Being originally from Shoshone Idaho, the outdoors are in his blood. If Jaiden could meet anyone living or dead, it would be Johnny Cash so he could hear him sing live. We look forward to helping Jaiden grow within our company and personally through the years and we are blessed to have him as part of our team.
