JL Tree Service Inc was created in 1975 by John Lewett. JL started out with a plain business card entitled JL Services, with his name and phone number. John soon realized that tree services was among the most needed service at that time. Northern Virginia, specifically Fairfax VA, is where he started the company. Northern VA is filled with large trees that have been around for many years. If you look at an aerial view of our area, you will see mostly green canopies covering our land. JL found out quick, that the tree business was a good one to be in!
JL started out with some friends, a truck, and a chainsaw. Quickly, he invested money into his business buying a chipper truck, and chipper, and before you know it, he had 2 tree crews going and a growing number of employees.
Today, JL Tree Service Inc is a leading tree service provider. JL states that one of the keys to his success in business all of these years is honesty, hard work, and taking care of his employees. Many employees of the company have currently been serving for over 15-20 years, with a handful over 30 years. Employees are treated with respect, and dignity. As a family business, we are proud of our tenure thus far and have high expectations for another generation to prosper with us in the tree business over the next 30+ years!
