The Channel

Buckin’ Billy Ray Smith

Real Name(s)

Buckin’ Billy Ray Smith


He received some backlash online from the hippies for cutting down their trees. The vegans have also attacked him. Other than that, he’s avoided much controversy in the world of social media and content creation.


Washington. I don’t have his exact address.


This man has worked hard his entire life. After leaving school, he got his first chainsaw, then two…and now he’s used more than 200!

Despite being older, he’s still full of energy, antics and most importantly, a powerful work ethic that few of us ever see on social media.

He truly believes in investing in yourself and forging your own path. That’s advice I totally agree with!

Net Worth

Guys who own their own tree service company are typically wealthier than we imagine. And so, at least for now, this is my best estimate…

As of 2024, Buckin’ Billy Ray Smith has a net worth of $2, 750,000 USD.

Yes, this man is a multi-millionaire, based on the value of his tree service business, his homestead, trucks, equipment, chainsaws and profitable YouTube channel.

With that much wealth, it certainly helps him live the idyllic life in the woods.


It’s also surprising how much he makes with his channel. The following (like my net worth estimation above) is actually my best estimate, based on his channel and social media engagement metrics. 🙂

Outside of cutting down trees for home owners, Buckin’ Billy Ray Smith makes $9,500 per month on YouTube.

He does this through YouTube ads (they pay well!), merchandise sales and affiliate links. Yes, this average guy is making a 6-figure annual income online from home…and you probably aren’t. 🙃

Anyway, it’s clear that he’s treating his channel like a real business. It’s pretty smart after all.


I haven’t seen him collab with any other YouTubers at this time. Shame really!

Big Moments

He’s dropped hundreds of trees in his career and not once has he had a tree land on a house.

Future Plans

He loves what he does and for him, it doesn’t feel like work!


Buckin’ Billy Ray Smith doesn’t have a wife or a girlfriend, though I can imagine that his Instagram inbox is full of proposals!


What can we learn from his #cabinpreneur journey?

➜ Chainsaws are AWESOME

➜ Hard work and be honest (his motto!)
