About us

Woodchuck Tree Service was started in 1976 on a hobby farm in Stillwater, MN by Dave “Jake” Jacobson. When he was growing up near Lake Phalen in St. Paul, he would see a tree and his first thought was, “tree fort!” Dave knew that he wanted to work outdoors and always enjoyed working with his hands most of all. Through years of hard work and first hand experience he became quite skillful at climbing and practical engineering. Little did he know that he was learning his trade and systematically building one of the most respected tree services in the Twin Cities. You can always expect a fair and honest assessment regardless of how small or large your project is. Wookchuck is family owned and operated.
