Dave Hagel, Owner/Operator of Hagel's Tree Service & Property Care is a long-time resident of Rapid City.  Dave received his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (decades ago).  After 25 years of working in engineering and construction fields, Dave took his love of the outdoors and hands-on work and created Hagel's Tree Service & Property Care.  Along with his wife, Darla, and seven kids, the business offers everything from tree removal, trimming, storm clean-up, and fire-hazard reduction.  Their sons have even "branched" out to offer mowing services.  With a 55' forestry truck, this crew can reach places many have thought impossible, and with Darla supervising clean-up, there is no mess left behind!  Tree removal can be risky if done incorrectly.  Instead of risking your life with a borrowed chain saw, trust Dave.  He is licensed, insured, and a member of the International Society of Arboriculture and SD Arborist Society, as well as a licensed Professional Engineer.  If you need a "tree guy" call Dave!
