Our Family Tree
Drew Miller started Miller’s Tree Service in 1999 with a truck, a chainsaw and the passion of an entrepreneur. Miller’s Tree Service now employs more than 50 trained professionals and has been voted the Best Tree Service in Tallahassee since 2008.
Drew credits his strong work ethic to serving in the United States Marine Corps. His entrepreneurial drive came from watching his dad help launch the Seminole Boosters in 1975 and serve as CEO for 36 years.
Born and raised in Tallahassee, Drew and his wife, Courtney, have two sons, Ryder and Colson. Drew loves all sports, has a passion for hunting and enjoys taking his boys to the river.
“When I started this business, I never could have imagined the growth our company has today. Our loyal customers have become family to us and because of them, we have been able to successfully expand our services.”
Katie Watkins started with Miller’s Tree Service in 2015 as a receptionist and is now office manager, running the day-to-day office operations as well as accounting and bookkeeping for the company.

Katie was born and raised in Tallahassee and has a deep love for the Seminoles. She is married to Ryan and they have two young children, Lynnlee and Grayson. In their spare time, you can find Katie and her family on the water.
