About Us

Our Background

Knowledge and Skill at Work for You

Bring together our knowledge, skills, and experience to provide you with the utmost professional tree services in California. 

In 1984, Mountain F. Enterprises, Inc. (MFE) was established in Lotus, California with the goal to provide customers with top-quality tree care. As a small residential tree service, it wasn’t long before Mountain Firewood (original name) realized it was time to expand into the firewood business. Four years later, the business blossomed into a full spectrum vegetation management business that specialized in providing services to a variety of customers including federal, state, and local agencies, municipalities, utility companies, timber companies, small landowners, and fire-safe councils.

In 2000, our business grew out of the residential tree service and firewood business to provide utility tree trimming and hazard tree removal services to the utility and commercial tree management industries. MFE with its highly skilled and professional personnel, top-of-the-line equipment, and a work ethic unprecedented in the industry, understand that professionalism and competitiveness are non-negotiable.

We believe that MFE is the most innovative and full-service line clearance contractor located in California. We offer utility companies and prime contractors the most economical and efficient methods of controlling unwanted vegetation within and along utility rights-of-ways.

We are not just about saws and trees. As MFE has grown through the years, so has our scope of work. In order to continuously meet the changing needs of our clients, we have had to branch out and provide other services such as site clearing, grubbing, road building, drilling holes for utility poles, and providing GIS services to mention a few. We have always stood up to the challenge which has led us to where we are today and what will lead us into the future.

Our wide range of equipment gives us the capability to handle almost any situation. Our size, broad experience, and technical resources give us the ability and flexibility to meet most requirements quickly, effectively, and safely. What separates us from other vegetation management companies is our reliability, cost, quality, and customer satisfaction.
MFE begins each project by acquiring a thorough understanding of our client’s objectives for their proposed project. Based on these objectives, MFE will prepare an intelligent, cost-effective proposal to meet the client’s goals and time schedule.
