Company Description

Bob Lee & Sons Tree Service, a professional company that specializes in healthy forest initiatives, thinning, wildfire prevention, and hazardous tree removal, has always been a family affair. If Bob Lee planted the seed, his son, Dale has turned it into a forest. Starting in the early 1980s as a local tree service, the company has now expanded its territory to cover most of Northern and Central Arizona. “In the beginning we worked mostly in the Rim country and White Mountain areas, but have recently seen a demand for our services in other areas throughout Arizona,” said Dale Lee, owner.

Founder, Bob Lee began his career as a uranium miner, but in the early 1980s, prices of uranium dropped and the mines closed. Lee found himself unemployed. A contractor friend in Payson called Lee and told him about the U.S. Forest Service mistletoe removal project near See Canyon. “We came out, looked at the project, and instantly fell in love with the Payson area,” recalled Lee. And so, in 1983, Lee opened Payson’s first tree service, aptly named Bob Lee Tree Service.

For the first five years, Lee cobbled together enough jobs to support his family and build a reputation in the community. At 67 years old, after running a successful business for 22 years, Lee decided to retire. That’s when son, Dale Lee stepped in. “I couldn’t see my dad’s business coming to a halt,” said the younger Lee, who took over his father’s business in September 2003, and renamed it Bob Lee & Sons Tree Service. “I felt very strongly that we should make a second- generation business. We plan to make a third-generation business as well.”

After acquisition of the business, Bob Lee & Sons expanded its service territory to include most of Central Arizona. We own and operate state-of-the-art equipment including aerial equipment, land clearing equipment, chipping or grinding equipment, and small scale logging equipment. Through the years, Dale Lee’s business has grown in several new and challenging directions. “None of this would have been possible without the help of my family and close friends,” said Dale Lee. “We were able to expand our horizons with the hard work and the expertise that comes with 30 years of experience. “We do anything from a single tree removal to removing thousands of trees on forest service, private lands, commercial and residential properties” said Lee.

Dale Lee works closely with government agencies and individual clients to promote healthy forest initiatives and wildfire protection. Bob Lee & Sons Tree Service has also made huge strides in the wild land firefighting service industry, both on rehab, contract falling, and initial attack scenarios. Bob Lee & Sons Tree Service offers wild land fire rehab services. The company’s expertise is especially important when maintenance and prevention are a priority after a fire. Fire line fuels must be chipped, and then spread over the burnt land. In time, the chips retain water and turn to mulch, helping new trees and foliage grow. We also use our chippers to turn green waste into useable products such as mulch, chips for dust control, and electrical energy.

Bob Lee & Sons Tree Service also takes pride in their in their hazardous tree removal skills- removing trees without damaging houses or property. “Our customers are amazed that we can take trees down without harming structures or damaging foliage or their property.” Due to our technical expertise, we hold safety as a top priority. We have an exemplary safety record and are constantly focused on education and developments in our industry. As a complete tree service, we are committed to providing you with the best information regarding arbor care, including fertilization, practical and corrective pruning techniques, and all other aspects of tree diagnosis and treatment. Bob Lee & Sons Tree Service is committed to serving our community. We will continue to strive to bring quality workmanship and technical expertise that our industry requires. “We want to continue Dad’s legacy of providing quality customer service at a fair price. Thank you, dad for your love and support.” –Dale Lee

Honest, Reliable & Dependable! They have us a good estimate compared to a few others that were not fair in our opinion and were taking advantage of the situation. Glad we waited because they were busy & booked up. Very happy and satisfied with their work. Will use them again in the future if we need any tree removals.

This is the best tree removal company in the area. I have used several others, and while I've been more than satisfied with all of them, Bob Lee and Sons does the highest quality work and exercises the most professionalism of all those I've had experience with. I highly recommend them for safe, cost-effective, professional tree removal. Dave Hamill, Far West Realty

Bob Lee Tree Service returned our phone call promptly when we needed 3 tall pine trees taken down due to bark beetles, then came right out and gave us a quote. It didn't take long to get us on their schedule. They were here as promised, did the work efficiently, got rid of all the trees and debris, were careful not to damage the carport since one tree was right next to it, and left the property clean and neat. All they left behind was very little sawdust. The workers were quick, knew what they were doing, and friendly. We were very happy with each person we met, and would certainly recommend this company to any one we know, and actually already have done so. Thank you for making an unhappy situation for us as easy as possible.

I have used Bob Lee & Sons Tree Service to do firewising on my property and also to remove damaged and broken trees and branches after a snowstorm. They are easy to make an appointment with, the estimator shows up on time to discuss what needs to be done, and the tree crew itself is professional, efficient, and polite. They also do an excellent job of cleanup. I highly recommend this company for any tree work you may need.

I had three different types of trees involved with different kinds of things that I wanted. There were three men involved on my team. They were very professional and ask what I wanted before they started. Calvin trimmed and shaped a mid sized apple tree, and I am very pleased with what he did and how it looks. He also topped and trimmed two small juniper trees, and did an excellent job on them also. While he was working in my backyard, Kevin and Henry started working on four very large locust trees in front of my home. They were very competent, and I am VERY pleased with what they did on these trees. I was also very impressed with the way they interacted with each other while they were working. There was absolutely nothing that was not appropriate and professional that occurred. I also had interactions with Harley, Jodi, and Abby, and they all performed their tasks professionally. I will definitely use Bob Lee and Sons again, if I need trees worked on, and I would definitely recommend them.

You'd think removing 2 shrub stumps was no big deal - NOT! The bushes were 24 years old and the work area was tight! The crew worked really hard and did a great job. Thank you Bob Lee & Sons.

Bob Lee Tree Service does fantastic work. They are busy so it took a while to get them to the jobsite, but once they arrived they did all the work that was bid on in a professional manner. I will definitely hire Bob Lee again and I highly recommend their services to anyone needing tree trimming services in the White Mountains of Arizona.
