About treesbyjake

Jake was born in Tulsa and raised in Texas. In 2008, he returned to Oklahoma and began work at a local tree service as a groundsman. Almost immediately, Jake became curious about climbing and it didn’t take long before he worked his way up to lead climber and foreman. Eventually, Jake decided to give it a go himself and TREES BY JAKE began.

What started with a Ford F-150, a trailer, and a chainsaw has grown into a full-scale tree service. Because of hard work ensuring customer satisfaction, TREES BY JAKE is now fully equipped with multiple crews, a crane, multiple bucket and grapple trucks, skid steers, and stump grinders, among other pieces of equipment. Through the years, we have heavily invested into mechanization of the tree care process to make each job as safe and efficient as possible and today, are 1 of only 2 tree care companies in town with a Tree-Mek crane. Jake also continues to learn and implement the newest climbing techniques. TREES BY JAKE is fully insured for both liability and workers’ compensation and we will be glad to provide a Certificate upon request.


Allison was born and raised in Colorado and moved to Tulsa in 2008 to attend The University of Tulsa Law School.  Jake and Allison met when Jake was hired to remove a tree at Allison’s condo complex and a few years later, they were married.  Allison practiced law for 5 years when she decided she had had enough of the law and quit her practice to manage TREES BY JAKE full-time.  As a former attorney, Allison manages the business with extreme organization and efficiency.  She is also a Certified Treecare Safety Professional (#03960) and is responsible for client contact, scheduling, accounting, insurance requirements, commercial contracts, HR, instituting and maintaining safety and training programs and credentials, and legal compliance.

In their free time, Jake and Allison enjoy working out, watching college football, and spending time with their eight dogs, Bubbles (a white labrador), Opie (a rescue mastiff), Stewie (a mini-dachshund), and their rescue pitbulls Gizmo, Jelly, Betty, Kitty, and Oswald.

At TREES BY JAKE, we are responsive to the needs of our clients.  As a Tulsa Certified Arborist, Jake can provide an assessment of your trees and make recommendations to promote their health and safety and make sure they look good too!

Honest, reliable, and … excellent work.

We have about 20 trees on our lot, which all needed trimming. We also needed our favorite big tree removed since over the years it had suffered damage due to weather and age (it was fairly large on our lot when we built our house almost 40 years ago). TREES BY JAKE gave us a […]
