Lake States Tree Service was founded in 1958 and was family owned for 40 years. In early 1998, an agreement was reached between the Lake Country Power board of directors and the former owner of Lake States Tree Service for Lake Country Power to purchase the tree service. It was at that time Lake States Tree Service became a subsidiary of Lake Country Power.
