My name is Derek Witthuhn, I grew up on a dairy farm outside of Wadena Minnesota.  My passion for the outdoors has always been a big part of my life. I enjoy hunting, fishing, and anything related to the outdoors.  I reside near Wadena with my wife and daughter.

I started my career here at Carr's Tree Service looking to make some money.  What I found was a great career opportunity in a family environment.  Every day at Carr’s is a great experience for me.  I work with some really great team members here!

I am an ISA certified arborist and hold a Tree Risk Assessment Qualification.  I enjoy going out in the public every day and helping people make reliable educated decisions on how to take care of their trees.  I strive to have great communication with our customers and team.  My goal is to provide a safe, quality, and reliable service!

Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ)

I grew up in St. Cloud and now live in the Brainerd Lakes Area. My love for the outdoors started at a young age and has grown into my career.

I have been with Carr's Tree Service since 2003 and have been an ISA Certified Arborist since 2012. I enjoy learning all I can about arboriculture through ongoing training.

I offer you the promise of taking care of your trees as I would my own. Whether it be structural pruning, removing dead wood, removing hazard limbs, removing dead or undesirable trees, brush mowing, installing a cabling system, plant health care, all the way down to grinding the stump.

I take pride in offering quality work at a fair price, creating return customers who appreciate the appearance and safety of a well-maintained tree.
