Meet Mark Kivisto

TreeStory founder Mark Kivisto’s love for trees runs deep. Mark grew up appreciating—and more often than not, climbing—the trees near his childhood home, and this arboreal affinity persisted into his adult life. Mark began treeStory five years ago (then called Kivisto West Tree Service), and in that time the company, its staff, and its fleet of equipment has grown enormously. Mark is an ISA certified arborist.

What They Say

I like working for TreeStory because of the workplace culture. Mark is an honest and genuine guy who cares about his employees’ well-being. Getting out of a cubicle is a bonus!

Jim Danielson

"Highly recommended, great work, at a great price. Always answers, or calls back immediately. Unbelievably quick taking down my huge 90ft cottonwood trees."

Jim Gray

"Very impressed with Mark's excellent customer service and quality work. From start to finish-job well done! I would highly recommend Kivisto West Tree Service to all my family, friends and business acquaintances."

Amy Forcier

"Earlier this spring I contacted Mark about removing overgrown shrubs and brush around my parents field line. He responded quickly, was extremely easy to work with--and best of all completed the project in a timely manner. I'd recommend his services to anyone."

Tyler Halonen

treeStory did a great job handling my tree removal project just outside of Delano. We’ve got 40 acres and we will be hiring Mark and his team again.”
