Our Story

March, 1976

Founding

Dan Keel and Bob Biel started K&B Tree Service in March of 1976 – our area had just experienced the biggest ice storm in 50 years… that left everyone with lots of tree damage!

What started out as a temporary job for two 21-year-olds has evolved into present day K&B Tree and Lawn Care. Affiliation with organizations such as Wisconsin Arborists Association, International Society of Arboriculture, and other green industry groups has kept the partners ahead of the pack regarding state-of-the-art care for trees, shrubs, and lawns.

Personally I think they're the best. They took one of our trees down that was rotten and they never left a mark in the yard.
