Jeff Pfeil - Owner

As many of you know I started Bozeman Tree in 2000 after moving here from Cincinnati to finish college at M.S.U. Here it is already 14 years later and so much has changed. Through the changes and growth, I have tried very hard to maintain perspective and remember who we are.  At home, my two sons Kaleb and Oliver are the primary focus of my wife, Jirina, and I. Oliver turns 3 and Kaleb turns 8 at the end of the year. Kaleb is already starting to talk about coming to work with me and “working alongside you” someday. What more could a guy really ask for!



Shirley Vanderstelt- Controller

This year marks 11 years since I started with BTLL and I couldn’t be more proud of the company we have grown to become in those 11 years. When I started, we had two trucks and two crew members, now I can’t drive through Bozeman without seeing a truck or one of our yard signs out there. Thank you all for your continued loyalty to us and allowing us the opportunity to keep your yards and trees healthy and happy!  Please feel free to stop in anytime to say "hi." We are always glad to meet you in person. Thanks for being the reason we are so happy to come to work every day!! When I'm not working, I enjoy all that Montana has to offer, usually viewed from the back seat of our motorcycle or floating down one of the many rivers. Someday I hope to travel the USA and get a souvenir from every state. I am also hoping to spend another week or two on an island somewhere with an umbrella drink. Until then, BTLL is where I will spend my days. 




Chris Manifold- Operations Manager/General Manager 

I have been a part of the Bozeman Tree Lawn & Landscape Care team for just about 4 years now and have worked in various spots in the company from being out in the field to the Customer Service Manager. I am now the Operations Manager here as I continue my growth for the upcoming year into the General Manager position. My focus is on continuing growth within the company and getting my team refined to take care of clients the way that I have enjoyed over the years. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In the summer months I spend time on the river, the greens and Camping anytime time I can. Come the winter, I like to hibernate in the warmth of my home and I prefer to stay near the fire. One of the major focus’ of this family man’s life is being the best father I can to my two children; what a task! My daughter is starting her journey into the Army National Guard this year and my son continues his journey through High School.



Virginia Andersen -Customer Service Manager

I joined the BTLL team in early 2015 as our customer service manager.  With a substantial career background in client relationship management-I anticipate growing with BTLL for a very longtime.  I have an open & friendly persona and am ready to help all of our new and existing customers through the many facets and processes of the arbor and lawn care business. 

Born in Havre, Montana, I attended the University of Oregon; paying my way thru my university days making theatrical costumes.   I have a 20+ year career track, that took me to many parts of the world: I recently returned to my Montana family here in the Bozeman area in 2014.

I am an avid gardener, backyard beekeeper, photographer, birder, hiking / fresh air/sunshine enthusiast, animal lover, armchair archeologist, voracious reader, and am “crazy for” all things creative, textiles, sewing, and historic costuming.   I am married to my high school sweetheart, and have one adult son.   

I look forward to having the opportunity to assist you!


Amy Parsons- Administrative Assistant

Thank you Gallatin Valley! I joined BTLL in the spring as a temp but due to your continued support, I was invited to stay! I am learning the business as I go and look forward to evolving with the company as we continue to grow with the valley.

I was raised in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains in New York State. I found myself drawn to the West by a photo album I saw of a friend’s working summer vacation in Yellowstone. I spent 3 ½ years living in the park year round before moving to Bozeman. I attended MSU but my unconventional skill set was truly born of a strong desire to be outside whether for work or play, leading to unique and empowering employment opportunities all over Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. I have an active mind that passes the time by wondering how things work, pondering philosophical anomalies, singing and creative writing. I also love kayaking, snow sports, destinationless road trips, anything related to bodywork, rainbows and bacon.



Erik Schneider- Field Supervisor and Consulting Arborist

I've lived in the Gallatin Valley for 15 years. I started working at Bozeman Tree, Lawn and Landscape Care in 2011. I've worked in all aspects of the company from lawn care to plant health care. I am a ISA certified arborist and I am licensed by the State of Montana for pesticide application pertaining to turf and ornamental, and also agriculture, for various broadleaf weeds, insects, fungus, etc. I have had 4 years previous experience with lawn care and plant health care with Nitro Green which is now part of Bozeman Tree, Lawn, and Landscape Care. When I’m not working I enjoy spending my time with my wife Martha and my son Clayton


John Noreika- Consulting Arborist

I was raised on a small subsistence farm in Pennsylvania.  My first job was pulling weeds in the garden at age four.  I felled my first tree with my hatchet when I was five.  Moving to Bozeman in 1994, I enrolled at MSU.  Graduating from Montana State University in Horticulture Science set my foundation in the green industry of the great state of Montana.  My work experience has ranged from plant biochemical and genetic analysis to vegetable gardening and retail nursery sales.  I have worked in research with native plants in Yellowstone National Park and have worked in the fight against noxious weeds with the Rocky Mountain Forestry Sciences Laboratory.   I have spent a number of years in the landscape industry and the nursery industry.  I have held various credentials in these industries including Certified Landscape Technician with ALCA (now PLANET), and Certified Plant Professional with MNLA.    As an ISA certified arborist I have worked with Bozeman Tree, Lawn, and Landscape Care for over five years and have experience in every service that we provide from tree pruning and removal to pesticide spraying.  In 2014 I became an ISA Qualified Tree Risk Assessor, one of just a few in the state of Montana.  As a sales person, you can expect honest answers to your questions providing you with the knowledge to address your landscape needs from top to bottom.  When I am not working I prefer to be navigating the pristine rivers of our state in a drift boat, casting a fly rod to catch that elusive big trout that I know is out there somewhere.  As a husband and father I have learned great lessons in patience, humility, and compassion.  My wife, Dorothy, and sons, Pete and Lou, are the center of my universe!
