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.



  • 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!

  • Jacob did a fantastic job taking down a large, dead tree that was dangerously close to my neighbor's house. He also did a great job cleaning up and trimming several other trees. Jacob has a biology backround and is very knowledgeable and helpful in identifying "at risk" trees. Definetely 5 star service.

  • I had a great experience with the team from DropZone Tree Services! Very professional service, reliable, efficient, and punctual (Jacob has proven he understands that customer service is still an integral part of customer experience). We called other Tree services but DropZone was the one that responded promptly. Jacob happily shared his knowledge and passion about trees, and worked with our budget, ensuring I was satisfied with the progress of the trimming...I fully recommend DropZone, and also plan to keep using their services in the future. Thank you to DropZone! Pam

  • Wow, I saw them at the neighbors home, and I needed a tree taken down because they are putting a new drain field in my yard. Spoke with him and asked if he could help me out and get rid of the tree today. Not only did they cut it down, but raked the yard afterwards, blew off the street & sidewalk- and they are not just tree cutters these guy know and explain everything- They were fantastic, pleasant, and professional. My wife already let the neighbors know this is the guy you want to do your work

  • 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.
