Humble beginnings define Steve Piper & Sons, Inc.
Locally focused since 1964, the history behind the present day tree service is nothing short of amazing. Originally, the outfit that would become Steve Piper & Sons, Inc. was nothing more than a rag-tag collection of teenagers acting on a challenge by Steve's father Robert, to make productive use of their time and learn the value of a dollar. With a Popular Mechanics rendering of a hydraulic log splitter and armed with bucksaws, Steve and ‘the gang' set out to provide firewood to Naperville, IL
residents. Coined ‘Suburban Teen Enterprises' by a local newspaper in a column highlighting local entrepreneurs, the boys saved their hard earned “firewood money” as their ticket to college.
