24 Hour Tree Service in Burlingame, CA

Tree emergencies must be tackled as they strike, day or night. We’ve proven we can quickly and safely deal with high-stakes tree emergencies during the 25 years we’ve been involved in wildland firefighting, where it’s a race against time to save the natural environment. We’re also ready 24/7 to attend to tree emergencies closer to home, like ones that can happen in your backyard.


Anything from decay, disease, root damage, and leaning trunks to uprooting during bad weather can make a tree a hazard. In situations like these, our certified arborists assess the affected tree before planning to safely remove it (or part of it) while protecting the surrounding vegetation, buildings, and structures.


Additional Services and Expertise

We start all our projects by thoroughly assessing the affected tree’s condition and potential risks. This inspection helps us decide what methods and equipment to use and preventive measures to take. We then prepare a detailed estimate of the scope of work, services, materials, and costs.


Once we’ve completed the work, we offer these additional services to enhance your land’s safety and visual appeal: planting, tree repositioning, rough grading elevation, and finish grading.

City Information and Local Tree Types

Burlingame is known as the City of Trees. And this celebrated urban forest keeps getting denser as the city plants hundreds of new trees yearly.


The eucalyptus tree is most strongly tied to Burlingame’s identity because of the signature grove lining the city’s El Camino Real. When Burlingame’s strong winds uproot one of these trees and fling it toward buildings or utility lines, we quickly and decisively remove the affected tree to prevent safety risks and property damage. 


The oak is another familiar tree on Burlingame’s landscape. Besides adding to the city’s personality, these trees attract wildlife and provide privacy and abundant shade. Oak trees are susceptible to harmful organisms that can cause sudden death. We put measures in place to protect oak trees from serious diseases or safely remove them if they can’t be saved. 


Maple trees are also a common sight in Burlingame. These fast-growers put on a show in the fall with their striking flame-colored leaves. However, the maple’s speedy growth can be problematic if the trees get too close to buildings or utility lines or develop structural issues. 

We strategically prune maples to improve their health and protect against property damage.
