Tree Removal:


I can simply cut the tree down from the ground or climb it with climbing equipment (climbing the tree is often more expensive). Once it’s down I can cut it into firewood pieces or leave it as is (or haul it away). If I cut it into firewood pieces I do charge extra. If the tree is small enough I offer the service for free. Most of the trees come down in 5-10 ft sections (if I climb them). 

Tree Pruning & trimming:


I trim many different types of trees, most commonly I prune Maples, Oaks, and Ash Trees. Oak trees are best pruned in the spring, fall or winter, you have to be careful due to Oak Wilt spreading in this area. Similar to removals it’s up to you if you want the debris cut into firewood size pieces or hauled away by us. Don’t be afraid to ask questions when I’m doing your estimate, for example sometimes it’s more cost effective to simply remove the tree instead trimming it. Ash trees are often so infected by emerald ash borer that it’s typically more cost effective to simply remove the tree instead of trim them.

Brush Hauling Services


Our original business model was “I cut it you haul it” but with so many requests to haul away brush we now include that as an option for customers before or after the estimate. Just let us know what you want done and we can give you a price for it! 

Firewood Cutting


Don’t want it hauled away but need help cutting it up? We are happy to help you cut it into firewood pieces. Although this does not include splitting the wood. Let me know ahead of time if you need it cut into a specific length. Otherwise the length varies. Wood is typically cut into 20-30″ pieces and brush is cut into 3-10′ lengths. 

Stump Grinding


Stumps are subcontracted to Matt with “Stumps in 72 hours LLC”. He and I partner together on many projects. He will give you an estimate. His minimum is $200, if you do multiple stumps the price drops significantly. His number is 507-216-2435.

Tree removal

I use safe and effective techniques to safely remove trees near power lines, fences, or close to your home. Whether your tree is small or large I’m confident I can remove it. 


Brush Hauling

We now offer brush hauling services. We can submit a complete estimate for cutting and hauling brush away. 


Or if you simply have a pile of brush that needs to be hauled away let us know. 


Tree Trimming

Pruning trees involves thinning and trimming the canopy to enhance natural branching patters. I will be careful to make sure I do not damage your tree during the pruning process.


Firewood Cutting

For customers that don’t want the brush hauled away, but want the wood cut into smaller sizes, this is a great option for many customers.
