About Us & Testimonials in Eagle River

tree cutting

In 1946, Emmett Klessig started a tree service in the Eagle River. During cold winter months, he switched to the logging business and worked with U.S Forest Timber Sales, a company he had purchased himself. Later in 1959, Emmett was awarded a contract for tree trimming and utility construction from Wisconsin Public Service. Emmett then became very busy at WPS, so he passed the logging part of his business over to his son, Lawrence Klessig.

Klessig Tree Service of Eagle River, along with its logging business, was left for Lawrence and his sons to carry on the hard work Emmett first started. The Klessig boys–David, Wade, and John–are successfully running it today and making their father proud. Lawrence still remains as a consultant, working closely with the family business to ensure everything is running just as it did when Emmett was in charge. Today, Klessig Tree Service has about 15 people on the working crew who are busy all year round. In the summertime, we mostly run our tree service, and our logging in the winter. It is busy, rewarding work; we are dedicated to making cleanup and land clearing that much easier for our customers. If you would like to request our services, contact us today.


Klessig Tree Service, Prince of Peace thanks you for your gracious donation of wood chips for our children’s playground. The wood chips certainly improved the safety and appearance around our swing set, slide, and jungle gym. The congregation at Prince of Peace and especially the children are most appreciative of this much needed improvement made possible by your generosity. David Ponte

Dear Mrs. Klessig, Thank you so much for helping us so quickly after the big storm! You did a beautiful job of taking down the big, old oak tree over our carport on the mainland without damaging the carport, and you left not the slightest shred of debris. Thank you, thank you!

Later this fall, when you have time, let’s go over the trees on the island that need to come down, but I know you’re overwhelmed right now. With all good wishes, Jane Field

Thank you for such quick service! We appreciate it. Dan and Linda

Thank you so very much for your prompt attention to my little pile in the driveway! I know you all have been so busy after the big storm – appreciate your taking and making the time! Julie

Thank you for removing and cleaning up the tree! Thanks for your prompt response. Stacey

Thanks for the good job! Bob

Enclosed check for the removal of some trees for us. We wish to extend our thanks for the excellent manner this job was performed. The overall quality of the work done and the clean-up after was certainly first class.

Your team of professionals are deserving of a special THANK YOU.
Howard & Lois Steiner
Over the years, we have been extremely happy with work done by Klessig Tree Service. This includes those doing the tree work as well as office personnel.

In dealing with Wade, Dave, Randy, and many others whom we don’t recall the names, we have found everything to be professional, friendly, and very responsive.

In this small community it is refreshing to find a business that returns calls promptly, shows up at the premise as promised, and does excellent work, including cleaning up.

During the recent storm occurrences in the area, many contractors were behind and once again, Klessig communicated and was honest in providing a work date.

Thank you again for your great work and customer relations! We really appreciate it.
