What Our Clients Say

We have two big sycamore trees trimmed by this company three years ago and this fall. They made our tree slim while keeping them nice. I have been happy with their services.

Yujin Chung

San Jose, CA

Manny was wonderful and very informative about what the right amount of pruning that was needed. I highly recommend this tree service. Very professional!

Veronica D.

SoMa, San Francisco, CA

We have a gigantic pine tree that needed heavy trimming as it was getting lopsided from more branches on one side due to the sun and PGE trimming branches away from the wires. Bay Area Tree had a huge job which they trimmed the tree so it was thinner and reshaped. We had just had our tile roof replaced and so we were very worried about any cuttings but they did a great job. They are a must if you need tree trimming.

May Y.

Mountain View, CA

We had a tree fallen during the recent storm. They came out at 9pm to help remove it. They are knowledgable, and methodoligically removed the tree to avoid further damages. It is very impressive.

Lixin M.

San Francisco, CA

This company has a superb groups of folks running it. From my initial discussion with Christie (who is wonderful!), to Larry who arrived in less than an hour, to Eddie and his coworker who did the actual work.

Daniel P.

San Jose, CA

Our 11 Italian Cypress along our fence line needed removal due to disease. Bay Area Tree Specialists did a great job today. The entire area was clean and to our amazement the yard looks bigger! The crew who worked at our home were polite and respectful. 5 Stars for great service and price.

Mariann M.

San Jose, CA

We hired Bay Area Tree Specialist to cut down a very large and tall eucalyptus tree. Their price was reasonable. We are very happy with the crew’s work and efforts. All the work was done on time and efficiently. Bay Area Tree Specialist came back a second time to trim off the stump.

Both Richard, Michelle and crews were great to work with. We will use them again for any tree services.

Barry Q.

Los Altos, CA

Manny Porter gave us a very reasonable bid for pruning 2 tall elm trees that had been topped previously. Our concerns were that a) branches over the lot lines don’t fall or drop excessive leaves on the neighbors’ lawns and b) that we don’t have to get this work done again for the next 3 years. Their crew came out 2 weeks after we signed their contract and did an excellent job meeting our needs. They were very courteous and professional, showing up first thing in the morning and finishing by 1:30 pm. Picture of their work is attached. They cleaned up thoroughly afterwards.

Larry And Keiko B.

San Jose, CA

Excellent experience (twice) with this company! They are incredibly fast and responsive. The arborist came over a day after I contacted them about two huge pines right above my house that me nervous during the storms and winds. The quote was sent that same afternoon, and the appointment to remove them was made for the following morning! They were fast and accurate, and left a perfectly clean driveway. Highly recommended.

K H.

Los Altos, CA

I can be a very picky person….and Bay Area Tree Specialists were the best. I can’t think of a single thing I would have liked done differently or better. Responsive, nice, on time, very careful, extremely knowledgeable, observing safety protocols, excellent job…..and affordable. As I said….the best!
