Doug Dirks was born and raised in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. He grew up 5 miles out of town and has always had a fondness for the outdoors, trees and their beauty.
After graduating high school, he spent seventeen years working in our area's National and State Forests, in the timber industry. During this time he learned a lot about our area's trees. Although working for a logging company and taking care of our local forest land was very satisfying, he always had the desire to own his own business. Upon hearing that a local arborist business was up for sale, he eagerly grabbed the opportunity, excited to take his knowledge and tree experience to the next level.
Doug earned his International Society of Arboriculture Certification shortly after purchasing the business. Nothing is more rewarding to him than customer satisfaction and taking care of the trees in our towns and neighborhoods.
He and his wife, Lisa, have now owned Dirks Tree Care for the past 10 years.
Sam lives in Sandpoint. He is a highly experienced climber, specializing in technical take-downs. He had many years of tree work experience, including climbing palm trees in Hawaii, before joining our team, and has now worked for Dirks Tree Care, Inc. for 8 years. He is polite, courteous and helpful! Safety is his priority!
Tucker is the son of Doug and Lisa Dirks. He recently graduated from Bonners Ferry High School and is now attending North Idaho College's welding program. He has worked in the family business for the last 4 years. He is a hard worker and now does nearly all of the welding Dirks Tree Care requires.
Shawn is a local guy, born and raised in Boundary County. He has worked for Dirks Tree Care off and on as needed for 3 years. We appreciate his availability, dedication and hard work on the ground. He is also owner of CDA Stump Grinding. This is very handy for us :)
Thank you Shawn for grinding the stumps that we leave behind.
Came and took down six trees, chipped all the branches and cleaned up the yard. Have used them before and they are the one that I always call!
An Outstanding Company
Doug, Lisa and their crew deserve the highest possible rating. They are friendly, professional, prompt, reliable and do outstanding work. I have hired them twice.....one enormous job, one small job. Both times Excellent.
High quality service.
We had 2 locust trees loaded with dead branches and limbs. One tree had a huge silver lace vine that was choking out some of the limbs. Both trees are quite stunning. We wish we could have our neighbor's locust trees trimmed as well.
thorough and efficient
The crew pruned a large birch tree and removed a huge unsightly and dying shrub. They were efficient, professional and did a good job of cleaning up the mess. I would recommend Dirks Tree Care to anyone in need of their services.
Storm tree November 2015
Did a great job removing a large pine tree that fell on my house during the storms last year.
