Since 1977, Raman Tree Service has been based in Hull. Today, five grandsons of founder Elmer Raman run the company.

Brothers Lee, Kurt, Kyle and Jeff Vander Schaaf, along with a cousin Chad Raman, have seen the business expand, so they decided to relocate to the Commerce Center, Hull’s newest industrial park. Construction began two weeks ago and they hope to be in the new building by fall.

“Our equipment was getting bigger and we needed more space. The new building will be 70×80 feet with an office, bathroom and space to work on equipment,” explained Lee.  “We need room for the dump truck, payloader, trailers and boom trucks.

“The Commerce Center is a good place for us. We’ll have room to grow.”

Raman Tree Service offers tree removal, stump grinding, growth cleaning and tree clearing. They work all over northwest Iowa.

“We do pretty much anything that has to do with trees and stumps,” added Lee. “We specialize in tree trimming.”

It runs in the family.

Elmer Raman brought the next generation into the business, including Perry and Wes Raman and Russ Vander Schaaf. When the third-generation owners were looking for extra part-time help, they hired a nephew, Taylor Miedema.
