The Beginning of Figg
The story of our company does not actually start in Denver. It starts with our founder, Marcus Figg, in Portland, Maine. He grew up in New England to parents who did what most New Englanders do – fishing and catching lobsters. Marcus liked seafood and the sea, but wanted nothing to do with the life of a fisherman. So, he got into construction. He specialized in building small log cabins in the woods for hunters who owned property and were looking to have an outpost when they went hunting. He often used locally sourced wood that he and his team would gather themselves.
After a while, he decided that he had had enough of the New England life and picked up to move to the Rocky Mountains. After getting there, he took the skills that he had learned from cutting down trees to start a modest little tree service business in Denver.
Marcus’s hard work and kindness helped the small business flourish into what it is today. He’s long passed now, but his memory and name is still with us every day when we do our work.
