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 highly recommend DropZone Tree Services. Jacob, the owner, proved to be extremely competent in felling two rather tall and precariously located dead pine trees. Jacob managed to bring said pine trees down in area no more than 8 feet wide - avoiding my deck, my neighbor's fence, and my other neighbor's well.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • It was our first time dealing with Mr Jacob, we found him to be very responsive, fair price. He did what he said he would do, when he said he would do it. Definitely someone that I look forward to dealing with in the future. Ive been in the contracting world for 25 years, and I would highly recommend.
