Hoppe Tree Service Company Photo

Hoppe Tree Service is a family owned Milwaukee area company that has been providing quality tree care for over 4 decades. The original company was started by Dean and Michael Hoppe along with their father Fred Hoppe in 1972 and they specialized in tree pruning and removal services. In 1986 Dean and his wife Lisa took over ownership and worked with their two sons August and Fred Hoppe. In the summer of 2014 August and Fred took over ownership of the company. Over the years, the small family business has grown to meet the ever increasing needs of our clients, and now performs a diverse range of services, including tree and shrub pruning, removal, planting, and plant health care programs to keep trees healthy. The third generation of company ownership is still committed to the mission of Hoppe Tree Service. "Taking care of people and their trees."
