The Early Years:
Established in 1978, Michael Grimm Services began as a one-man operation. With a bicycle and some hand tools, Michael developed a small route of customers. The following year Michael purchased a used pickup truck and increased his customer base. Taking on his first employee was a new challenge. Each year his success surprised him. New equipment and additional staff required extra space so the family garage was remodeled to accommodate an office and a barn was built to house the expanded company. We soon outgrew this space, and in 1998 we moved to a rented property on Lafayette Rd in Jamesville. The property was purchased in 2006 and renovations and new buildings gave adequate space to our growing needs.
The Newest Chapter:
Dan Deyle, a 24-year manager, bought Michael Grimm Services in 2020. His dedication to the business and his extensive knowledge of the Green Industry makes him the perfect leader to move the company into the next generation. Now with over 60 employees and 40+ trucks we hope to continually find ways to serve all of our customers’ landscaping needs. We strive to be big enough to serve your needs but small enough to be able to respond to each customer in a personal and professional way.
“I have hired several other tree services companies over the 17 years that I have owned my home. Never have any of them come close to the professionalism and efficiency that your crew from Michael Grimm exhibited. From the quoting process to arriving exactly on time, to the performance of the crew, to the follow-up calls that you provided, I can say from experience – no one should be hiring anyone but you guys. And, your quotes were extremely competitive. The tree removals, stump grindings, and sodding were all perfectly executed before the deadlines I requested. Nice work! And, thank you. You guys are the best.”
