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.



  • 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.

  • We had a large oak tree removed that was close to our house. We had heard in the neighborhood about this company in which we contacted Jacob. He was quick, attentive and personable with having him come out and provide an estimate.
    Once we received approval from the HOA and City, Jacob and his team were out within the week. Did a great job at a very fair price. Great experience and will certainly use them again whenever we need something done in the future. Highly recommend.

  • 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!

  • I used this service for a tree trimming job in front of my house. The tree was very overgrown and ugly. Jacob was punctual and professional and final result was great. I would highly recommend this service for trimming or tree removal

  • 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.
