24 Hour Tree Service in Santa Clara, CA

Every second counts when you’re dealing with a tree emergency. That’s why Fire Fighter Tree Services’ dedicated emergency response team is here to help you day or night. 


Anything from decay, disease, root damage, and leaning trunks to uprooting during bad weather can create a tree a hazard. In such situations, our experienced team quickly assesses the affected tree and potential risks before safely removing it (or part of it) while protecting the surrounding vegetation, buildings, and structures.


Additional Services and Expertise

The first thing we do when starting a project is thoroughly assess the affected tree’s condition and potential risks. We then know what methods and equipment to use and which preventive measures to take. 


Next, we give you a detailed estimate of the scope of work, services, materials, and costs.


After completing the project, we offer these additional services to enhance your garden’s safety and aesthetic appeal: planting, tree repositioning, rough grading elevation, and finish grading.

City Information and Local Tree Types

Santa Clara is a recognized tree hero. The city’s innovative efforts to fill out its urban forest have earned Tree City USA’s coveted Growth Award 23 times. One of Santa Clara’s most-beloved trees is the bigleaf maple. Its round crown and huge leaves create shade like no other in the sunny seasons. Bigleaf maples don’t tend to be bothered by pests. However, mature trees’ branches are vulnerable to breakage. We remove broken branches using sharp, sterilized pruning equipment to minimize damage and fast-track healing.


The sycamore stands out because of its height, large leaves, fuzzy pods, and unique-looking bark (parts of the outer brown layer peel away, showing tan, gray, and white patches underneath). These are ideal city trees because they purify polluted air without being harmed. But their shallow roots can damage paving, underground pipes, and buildings in cramped yards. We can advise on the least-invasive intervention when a tree poses a risk to your home.


Gray pines attract birdlife (red-shafted flickers and California jays flock to their branches) and have a sweet, fresh scent thanks to chemical compounds called terpenes. However, these trees are susceptible to pests like aphids and diseases like Western gall rust. We can diagnose and treat the various causes of sickly and struggling gray pines.
