About Max Tree Farm

Max Tree Farm is a family owned business located in Scandia, Minnesota.

“When we found it difficult to find quality, large caliper trees for our building projects, we started thinking about a new purpose for our farm fields. After many hours of research, learning, and development, we created Max Tree Farm. The farm is named after Max, the youngest of our three children, who has Down syndrome.”

Jim's History:

Jim Simpson’s love for trees started when he was very young.

Jim got his first pesticide applicator license as a teenager in 1978 when he started his first company, Elm Injection Service, working with Dr. David French at the University of Minnesota. Jim and a good friend rode their 10-speed bikes all over Minneapolis, towing the equipment and chemicals behind him. Today, Jim takes great pride in pointing out the many elm trees he worked on, saving them from Dutch elm disease.
