Introduction: Hi!... I've worked with trees in the Bay Area for 20 years and I'm a Certified Arborist. I'm a Member/Director of the BAAC (Bay Area Arborist Cooperative), a highly accredited organization dedicated to the health and beauty of trees. I specialize in offering to customers a well educated and passionate approach to making sure my clients trees are pruned in the most beautiful manner with their health ensured for the future and enhancing the nobility and beauty of any given species of tree through my artisanship. I also write Arborist Reports for my clients and have served as an expert witness in a case involving trees. It's a highly rewarding occupation given that my intellect is tested and ignited as well through the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) and their consistent and rigorous demands of testing every three years in order to keep my credentials with consistent publishing of new information from universities within the United States and around the world. The the health and beauty of the urban forest is necessary for our survival and aesthetic pleasure. I'm very proud to be able to serve that and continue to make the Bay Area thrive and lead the world in this field as well.

Tree Trimming and Removal

I am so thankful we hired Sean. He was able to trim my trees so they still look natural while keeping them healthy. It was easy to communicate, set the date for work and make payment. I look forward to working with him each year to follow up on my tree care. His pricing was reasonable for our area which included evaluation, work and clean up costs. So glad I found him on thumbtack!

Tree Trimming and Removal

Sean removed two trees in my backyard and trimmed one. His communication was great, and he did the work for the exact price he quoted. I would definitely hire him again.

Tree Trimming and Removal

Sean made it fast and furious :) he removed the big tree from our backyard and trimmed some other trees. We still need his help to proceed after construction is done! Highly recommended. Thanks Sean!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Every job is so different and unique, I’m always more than willing to arrive to a customers address for a free estimate and go over the pricing format to give a clear understanding of how it’s calculated

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Meet them onsite and answer all questions regarding their trees to their satisfaction.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I’m a certified Arborist and have worked in the field for 20 years. I’ve also acted as an expert witness involving trees, and my continued education requirements to maintain my certification through the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) as a Certified Arborist and membership of the TCA (Tree Care Association) keeps me well informed of all the current publications and study of the latest tree knowledge internationally. I specialise in urban Arboriculture and how best to sustain trees in this environment.
