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 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

  • 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.

  • 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 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

  • Phenomenal job from Jacob and the team from DropZone! They were incredibly fast, cleaned up everything, and priced lower than the other two quotes I received. I had Jacob come out to give me a quote to remove 4 large oaks, and grind the stumps, but still needed city approval. I received approval on a Friday and DZ were out on the following Tuesday. The had all 4 trees down and most of the debris cleaned up on that same day. Just had to return on the following day for a small bit that wouldn’t fit. Definitely recommend that you at least get an estimate if you need tree service or removal.
