Licensed & Insured

Hiring a tree service company WITHOUT the appropriate and required license and insurance is a dangerous proposition for the property owner.  It can result in expensive lawsuits and your property insurance paying for an injured worker on your property.  Without the proper license, you can’t tell who is a reputable and reliable firm and who is not.

We are a well-established arborist company with a very strong reputation.  We have personal and property damage insurance as well as workers compensation insurance that we supply on demand to any customer that requests.  Additionally, you can look up our Contractors License Number at the State of California’s website to verify that current insurance and licensing requirements are met. Many homeowners have had to pay out large amounts of money for damages caused by an uninsured individual claiming to be a tree expert.  We are truly committed to providing our customers with reliable service and quality tree care.

It says a lot that we are a Certified Arborist and a contractor licensed with the State of California.  Many tree trimming services don’t have the credentials, training and certification to do tree services correctly.  Because so many government agencies depend on us to service the facilities, public areas, parks and streets, we maintain a very high rating for our customer service.
