About Us

DropZone Tree Services is owned and operated by Jacob Uhle, Wildland Firefighter and former Biologist for FWC.

Jacob started his career in ecology as a technician at Tosohatchee WMA, while earning his degree in Environmental Studies at UCF. After graduating, Jacob became a Wildland Firefighter, and began his journey as a sawyer. He learned from longtime expert sawyers from all over the country, including California, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, Georgia, and the Carolinas. Jacob has always loved the challenge of safely felling hazard trees, and enjoys learning how to navigate new situations.

Jacob has since felled tens of thousands of trees in the Southeast United States, and worked all over the state of Florida, as both a Wildland Firefighter and a Biologist. He brings to his business a deep understanding of ecology, native Florida flora and fauna, and environmental biology. Jacob is federally qualified as a Faller 2, excellent at directional felling, and has taught multiple safety trainings on felling trees.

This experience led Jacob to the creation of DropZone. What started out as the ability to help his friends, family, and neighbors with their removal of hazard trees has grown into a desire to assist the Lake and Orange and county communities with their tree service needs.



  • Highly recommend! Drop Zone did a fantastic job on our large live oak that had been very neglected prior to us purchasing the property. They listened to all my concerns, were very good about communicating when it came to scheduling the work, and the arborist was very knowledgeable. They really care about keeping your trees healthy, which was very important to me with this big old oak. They were also very reasonably priced and hauled everything away. Definitely hire them for your tree trimming!

  • I hired Jacob to remove 8 high risk oak trees in my front and back yard that have been growing over my roof for years. He was willing to work with me on a budget and cut me a break to leave larger stumps. He is very professional, personable, and knowledgeable when it comes to his line of work. He did a fantastic job with the removal and cleanup. There was no damage to my roof or property. I highly recommend his services to anyone who needs tree work!

  • They are very professional and on time. The job I had done had three parts to it scheduled over three different days. It was all done on time with proper communication with me. I was very impressed. I honestly have never had a contractor of any kind be so prompt and professional. Plus, the job was done without any problems and they were a pleasure to deal with.

  • DropZone is the real deal. The owner, Jacob, is a genuine, kind, and honest person. He possesses a treasure of knowledge about trees and the ecology that he happily shares with anyone who asks.
    I hired Jacob to trim three large mature oak trees in my yard that had never been trimmed. He arrived to give me a quote. The next day the job was completed and the site cleaned up all while I was out. His crew did an amazing job that exceeded my expectations.
    With this company - you wont get a pushy sales guy looking to pick your pocket while live-instagramming on your job. Instead, you get trust-worthy small business family men who do excellent work and put their customer’s happiness first.

  • I had to two trees in my back yard removed by Drop Zone. Both were very close to the house, and leaning over it. Jacob did a great, incident free job. He left he yard clean when he was done. Great to work with - showed up as scheduled, completed job on schedule, and reasonably priced. Will definately use again if the need arises!
