Tree Service in Priest Lake, Pend Oreille, Coeur d’Alene and North Idaho.

Priest LakeSince the 1930’s the Bretthauer family not only has worked in and around Priest Lake, but also the other beautiful lakes, like Pend Oreille, Coeur d’Alene and many other smaller lakes and rivers that make up Northern Idaho.

Starting with Great Grandpa Ed and Haitty Bretthauer Back in the 30’s, who were newly married and living in Spokane Washington, decided that they would either move their family to help construct the Coulee Dam or move to Priest River to work in the timber industry. They decided with a coin toss and Priest River won, so they ended up moving to Northern Idaho.

Since then my family has not only been part of the timber industry, which includes the last log drive from Priest Lake down the Priest River, but fought countless forest fires, like the Sundance Forest Fire back in 1967.

We’ve also constructed hundreds of miles of roads and bridges around Priest Lake, Pend Oreille and Coeur d’Alene over the years. Our company now services these areas and includes areas outside of Idaho. If you are in need of a tree removal  service in Coeur d’Alene give me a call.

The beginning of Northern Lakes Tree Service all started back in 1993 when I decided that I wanted to work for myself and be outdoors. With a couple of husky chainsaw’s and well used climbing gear I managed to scrape together, along with my old 1956 Ford two ton truck that wasn’t very pretty but got the job done, I began doing tree service around the area. This is when we learned the art of “Low Impact Tree Removal.” Simply put, it’s how to work around and at the same time Protect Landscaping, Lawns ,Driveways and Walkways and every other obstacle in or around a yard without damaging anything. Because as you know people work hard on their lawns and landscaping and don’t want to see it carelessly damaged or destroyed when tree service is being done.
