Mike Barnes Brings Nation’s First and Fastest-Growing Tree Service Franchise to Denver, Littleton, Lakewood and Surrounding Areas

“What attracted me to this brand was having the opportunity to work outside, instead of sitting behind a desk every day," said Barnes.

Monster Tree Service, the nation’s first and fastest-growing tree service franchise, is expanding into Colorado. Recently featured by SUCCESS magazine, Thrive Global, and Franchise Times, the Monster Tree Service franchise continues to build on its rapid three-year franchise system growth.

Business entrepreneur Mike Barnes has purchased the rights to a Monster Tree Service Territory in Southwest Denver, covering Denver, Littleton, Lakewood and surrounding areas. Barnes is pursuing his dream of owning and running his own business after a successful 26-year career in the financial industry. Barnes has a well-rounded business background with experience in operations, finance and project management.

“I’m thrilled to be starting this new chapter in my career with Monster Tree Service,” said Barnes. “What attracted me to this brand was having the opportunity to work outside, instead of sitting behind a desk every day. All the skills I’ve developed over my career translates well to this business model, and the corporate team provided excellent training so I could hit the ground running.”

Josh Skolnick, CEO and Founder of Monster Tree Service, is confident that Barnes will be a tremendous asset to the Monster Tree Service franchise.

“Mike is a perfect fit for the Monster Tree Service brand,” says Skolnick. “He has an incredible work ethic, an unparalleled drive to succeed and a keen understanding of business. We are very glad to have him on our team. I can’t wait to see his growth in the coming years.”

Monster Tree Service is the only franchise tree company capitalizing on the under-served $17 billion tree service industry. Monster Tree Service has achieved consistent year-over-year, 5 percent growth since 2009, resulting in a $10+ million business. Because it’s a high-upside opportunity, and a recession-proof business, Monster Tree Service expects to achieve $100 million in sales by 2021.

“I grew up in the Denver area, so I’m used to the snow, but I didn’t know how it would affect my business through the winter months,” said Barnes. “However, if it’s not snowing, we’re working. Once the snow stops falling, the crew is back at work. We’re also excited to offer the community our wide array of services, including tree pruning, tree removal, emergency services, stump grinding, shrub pruning and more.”
