About Sand Creek

Meet the Sand Creek Tree Service crew…

Tyler Quintano, Sand Creek Tree ServiceTyler Quintano worked across the West and in Alaska as a Forest Technician and served as a sawyer with the Chena Hotshots wildland fire crew. His experience over the last 15 years ranges from fuels management to general forest health, technical tree pruning and hazard tree removal. Tyler has been climbing trees professionally since 2008 and is the ISA Certified Arborist at Sand Creek Tree Service. His first word as a child was “tree.”


Jen Jackson Quintano, Sand Creek Tree ServiceJen Jackson Quintano began leading crews eradicating invasive trees in the Escalante River Basin in 2006. Now, as co-owner of Sand Creek Tree Service, she knows a bit more about tree care than just how to kill them. Jen has also learned more about Quickbooks and Search Engine Optimization than she ever could have imagined. She likes running chainsaws and loves writing, her life-long passion.


Jeremiah Riffel is a valuable addition to the team, working with us since 2016. He came to us as an experienced sawyer, and is now an experienced and competent climber. Jeremiah is a Sandpoint native who enjoys hunting and training German shepherds. He’s the hardest worker we’ve ever met, and we feel like we’d be lost without his strength and boundless energy.


Tanner Manchester joined our crew in 2019. His previous experience as a tree service groundsman allows him to bring new approaches and ideas to our existing repertoire. Tanner served as a Naval Intelligence Officer and now enjoys the lake and time spent with family and friends in the area.



Sylvan Quintano became a welcome addition to the Sand Creek Tree Service team in 2014. For now, her services are limited to repurposing the log yard as a playground. Seesaws and jungle-gyms abound. Her name means, “one that lives in or frequents the woods.” And it’s true. She does.



Sand Creek Tree Service is located in Sandpoint, Idaho, and is licensed and insured. We are dedicated to customer satisfaction, onsite safety, tree health, and putting in a hard day’s work. And we value honesty and reliability because, at the end of the day, our clients are also our neighbors and friends.
