Our Team

We’ll get our jeans dirty so you don’t have to!

Brent Brune

Owner / President

Brent has lived in Cape Girardeau his entire life and has deep roots in the community from graduating from Cape Central High School to being a third generation Brune football player at Southeast Missouri State University. He graduated from Southeast in 1993 with a degree in Industrial Technology. He worked as a Timber Broker for Timberline International from 1993 until 2006 when he decided to start his own business, creating Brune Forestry Products, LLC.

Brent still owns Brune Forestry Products, but in 2011 had the opportunity to purchase Stork Landscaping from his friend, Ben Stork. With Brent’s 20 years of expertise in the forestry industry, knowledge in production management and cost estimation, and lots of praying and sleepless nights, Brent took a leap of faith and purchased Stork Landscaping. He has not looked back ever since, continuing to grow and expand the company.

“I have the best guys in the business and working together as a team allows us to deliver the best quality, the best service, and a great experience for our clients. Game On… You can count on us.” – Brent
