of Mid-Florida Tree Service
Byron Lee Jones founded Mid-Florida Tree Service way back in 1976 when he was
40 years old. He'd been laid off from the Tampa shipyard and decided to start
his own business. Byron didn't have a lot to start with, just a pick-up, a
hand saw and three employees, the third being his son Tim. With this small
crew, they set out to find jobs in and around Tampa. Over thirty years have
passed since then,and his business has continued to prosper like it did in the
Like anything in life, there were tough times but Byron quickly learned that
giving the customer more that what was expected and doing every job
professionaly, the company would survive. Byron never took any customer for
granted and was always honest and fair. He built the company on the motto
"Treat every customer as if they were your only customer".
Byron continued to grow the company through the 70's, 80's and 90's. Tim
continued to work with his Father, helping to build Mid Florida Tree Service
into the company it is today. In 2000, Bryon handed the reigns over to Tim
who's been running it since.
Over the past several years our business has earned quite a reputation for
charity and humanitarian work for the service we provide to our community. We
have worked directly with various municipalities around the Tampa area,
assisting low incomehomeowners with hazardous tree removal or just helping get
their property "up to code".
Mid Florida Tree Service's expansion over the years has not change the fact
that we are a family affair. More that 10 of our employees have stayed with us
for 20 years! Over the years, many things have change, but our focus on
efficiency, politeness and professionalism remain. We instill in our employees
the strong desire for customer satisfaction.
