Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Tree Service

When you are looking to hire a tree service Santa Rosa residents trust, it is important to consider the nature of the work. What type of tree service do you require? A simple trimming? Hazard tree removal? Stump grinding? Tree work can be a dangerous job, especially when removing trees close to targets. That is why it is important to hire someone who is licensed and carries all the appropriate insurances to protect both you the property owner, and the employees working on your property.

Ultimate Tree Service LLC is a licensed business in CA 1052782. We also carry liability insurance; we can present you with a copy upon request. In addition, we carry workers’ compensation insurance for all our employees. We can present a certificate if requested. Even if you choose to go with another tree service in Santa Rosa, do your due diligence to make sure they’re fully licensed and insured.

While this tree trend is growing in popularity in some areas, tree topping is not recommended because it can cause starvation to the tree and, when it is topped, the new growth that occurs is rapid and the limbs that grow are poorly attached. Fortunately, you have other options! Another alternative is to see if making proper reduction cuts to another branch of similar size is enough to achieve the desired overall height.

Mitigation: Instead of topping the tree you may consider a complete removal especially if it is already not doing well. Another alternative is to see if making proper reduction can reduce the size cuts to another lateral branch of a similar size. When in doubt, consult a reputable tree service company like Ultimate Tree Service.

The answer to this question will vary based on a few different factors. Depending on the city you are located in and the type of tree you are removing, you may be required to have a tree removal permit. If you do need a permit and you accept a bid with us we can assist you in obtaining the permit. In addition, the total cost of a tree removal permit varies based on your location and the number of trees you’re looking to have removed.

A qualified arborist is someone who claims to have some degree of knowledge regarding trees. That knowledge and competency is unmeasurable and would rely on anecdotal information to determine contracting with them.

A Certified Arborist is someone who has met a standard set by an industry wide association that establishes a MINIMUM bar for someone who is able and competent. Someone who is Certified has to undergo continued education to maintain certification which is renewed every three years under the International Society of Arboriculture. This ensures that we as Arborist are up to date on the latest education and information.
