Most Requested Tree Care Services

Tree Pruning

Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. Although forest trees grow quite well with only nature’s pruning, landscape trees require a higher level of care to maintain.

Stump Grinding

We have smaller stump grinders that can fit through a typical back yard gate.

Tree Removal

Removing a tree is a delicate operation and requires skill, precision and the right equipment. Depending on the location of your tree we may use a bucket tuck or crane to assist in the removal.

Defensible Space

How To Defend Your Ideal Environment From Fires!

Did you know that many homes are lost each year due to wildland and wildland urban interface fires? It is imperative that you prepare now to protect your home from such occurrences!

Defensible space is essential to improve your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire. It’s the buffer you create between a building on your property and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surround it. This space is needed to slow or stop the spread of wildfire and it protects your home from catching fire – either from direct flame contact or radiant heat. Defensible space is also important for the protection of the firefighters defending your home.

Defensible Space Zones

Two zones make up the required 100 feet of defensible space.

The two zones are: the home defense zone; and the reduced fuel zone (see "Defensible Space Zones, below). The home defense zone is within 30 feet of the house. The reduced fuel zone lies beyond the home defense zone and extends out at least 100 feet from the house or to your property line. Greater defense zone widths are necessary when your home is on a steep slope or in a windswept exposure. Specific recommendations for each zone are described below and pertain to the State Responsibility Area (SRA) protected by CAL FIRE. Local Responsibility Areas that are protected by citly or county fire departments may have slightly different requirements.
