About Us

Our History

What began in 1962, as a one man/one truck operation tree clearing business has grown into one of the areas most respected and qualified contractors.

Jimmie Crowder’s Tree Service began in 1962 with a strong commitment to quality and work performed in a timely manner. Jimmie, along with his late wife Bobbie J. Crowder, followed this business philosophy in every job performed, no matter how big or small. This simple operation flourished and in 1973, the business eventually became known as Jimmie Crowder Excavating and Land Clearing, Inc.

Nearly five decades later, it is still family owned and operated, yet on a much broader scale. Crowder has over 140 employees and 375 pieces of heavy machinery and specialty equipment serving the Southeast region and areas across the United States. We maintain an extremely diverse operation consisting of two offices: Tallahassee and Carrabelle, Florida.

Eyes Towards The Future

Today Crowder is a diverse multi-dimensional company, fully insured and licensed and ready to serve. We operate one of the most technologically advanced fleets in the Southeast and have done work in states from Oklahoma to Virginia and many other states in between.

From turn-key sight development to rapid responders, Crowder remains dedicated to a high caliber of professionalism and quality.  In fact, when disaster strikes anywhere across the continental U.S., Crowder is a known resource for being able to provide the know-how and manpower to help in a time of need.
