Stumpy’s Tree Service was founded by Martin and Anne-Marie Jakobsen in 1976. Originally, Martin performed all of the tree work himself. Equipped with just a chainsaw and a pickup truck, he was truly a one-man show. Over the past 40-plus years, the business grew into the respected company it is today.  Our modern fleet of equipment includes: three different sized cranes, bucket trucks, ASVs, chip trucks, grinders and more. We own one of the largest, most modern cranes in that area capable of safely reaching trees otherwise inaccessible to most of our competitors. We currently employ over 30 employees – many of whom have been with Stumpy’s for decades.

Clients from many years ago still call and request specific arborists – most of whom are still with us today!

We look for employees who add to and help grow the company.

Many of our tree specialists have had very specific training in both tree-work and safety procedures, and continue to learn through continuing education in our field. Stumpy’s Tree Service remains a family-owned and operated business. After growing up alongside Stumpy’s and pursuing a 10+ year career in consulting and finance, Martin’s son James partnered with his father several years ago to help ensure the future growth and success of the business.  James’ wife Lesley also joined Stumpy’s in 2015.  James, Lesley, and their 3 young children – the next generation of Stumpy’s – are committed to continuing Stumpy’s legacy of quality and service.

While it may sound cliche, we are passionate about providing top tier service to our clients. We treat your property as if it were our own.

From your first contact with us to the final cut, our main objective is to make you happy. Don’t just take our word for it, you can see praise and acclaim for our service on Angie’s List, Yelp and Google. We’ve been a holder of the Super Service Award on Angie’s List for ten years and counting. We’re also highly praised on Nextdoor.com.
