Our Story  ;)

About Us:

Cutting Edge Tree Service is a story of a classic American dream. We are a 100% locally built and family operated business. Owner Erik W.Tjossem, has ten years experience; first as a climber and then as a foreman/climber of a crew engaging in ALL aspects of tree work. He was taught by some of Humboldt's best including fourth generation Arborists and loggers (Thank you Rocky). Erik has classroom experience in forest management and four years experience as certified Arborist. Erik has two small children and very supportive partner and family that are the cornerstone of all that he does. When we started our business, we had an old truck and a handed down saw. A lot of Hard work, studying and saving we are proud of the growth of our third child Cutting Edge Tree Service. 
We at Cutting Edge Tree Service uphold the highest standards of tree care, we have an old fashion work ethic with Cutting Edge Skill.
Cutting Edge Tree Service's approach to tree work is concise, intelligent, (brave :) and even artistic. 

Keeping it local:

Building a business in Humboldt has provided many rich experiences. It has taken a village to build it! Our logo was an actual picture of Erik that a local artist took and then digitally remastered into what you see on the banner to the left of your screen. All of our company clothing was produced by a local screen print company, we even use a local classic chocolate maker for all of our promotional needs. We love this community and believe in supporting local commerce.

Our Affiliates:
