Monster Tree Service Awards Territory in Florida

Peter Waxman and Matt Kuntz Bring Nation’s First and Fastest-Growing Tree Service Franchise to Jupiter, Tequesta, Palm Beach Gardens, Stuart and Surrounding Areas

Monster Tree Servicethe nation’s first and fastest-growing tree service franchise, is expanding in Florida. Recently featured by SUCCESS magazineThrive Globaland Franchise Times, the Monster Tree Service franchise continues to build on its rapid three-year franchise system growth.

Business entrepreneurs Peter Waxman and Matt Kuntz have purchased the rights to a Monster Tree Service Territory in Jupiter, Florida, covering Jupiter, Tequesta, Palm Beach Gardens, Stuart and surrounding areas. The partners both grew up in the Jupiter area and are already meeting with customers to get a jump start on spring projects.

Waxman and Kuntz each possess unique business backgrounds that will contribute to their long-term success at Monster Tree Service. Waxman comes from a 25-year career in medical device sales and distribution. Kuntz owned a successful plumbing and A/C business that was recently acquired by a state utility company.

“Monster Tree Service is a great fit for our leadership styles,” said Kuntz. “Peter’s background is more operational, so he’s taking charge of sales and managing the crews. My strengths are in advertising, marketing, and tracking the financial components of the business. I think we make a great team because we both respect the other person’s strengths and we won’t step on each other’s toes. We also believe in building a winning work culture, where employees like coming to work every day and enjoy helping customers improve their properties.”

Josh Skolnick, CEO and Founder of Monster Tree Service, is confident Waxman and Kuntz will be excellent Monster Tree Service franchise owners.

“Peter and Matt are ideal Monster Tree Service franchisees,” says Skolnick. “Matt has a solid business background and an entrepreneurial spirit that can’t be stopped. Peter has a knack for understanding the needs of his community, and I am confident they will thrive as the newest members of the Monster family. We are thrilled to have them on our team.”

Monster Tree Service is the only franchise tree company capitalizing on the under-served $17 billion tree service industry. Monster Tree Service has achieved consistent year-over-year, 5 percent growth since 2009, resulting in a $10+ million business. Because it’s a high-upside opportunity, and a recession-proof business, Monster Tree Service expects to achieve $100 million in sales by 2021.


“Our territory is on the eastern side of Florida and can quickly become ground zero for storms during hurricane season,” said Waxman. “An important focus of our business will be helping property owners with storm prevention in the spring and summer months before storms hit. Our certified arborist is experienced at pruning trees to remove dead limbs and encourage strong growth. And our crew of professionals will act quickly after storms to manage cleanup efforts. We’re excited to offer our community a wide array of services, including tree and plant health care, landscaping, tree removal, pest treatment and more.”
