Frequently Asked Questions About Tree Services in the Bay Area
Below are some of the most common questions asked about our tree services in the Bay Area:
When should I consider tree removal?
There are many factors to consider before removing unwanted trees from your property. At M & M Tree Service, we have professional and skilled arborists to help you determine whether tree removal is suitable for your case.
Removal is recommended if the trees pose a safety risk or potential danger to your family and property. Here are some reasons why tree removal is necessary:
• A tree is dead or dying.• A tree was damaged by a storm.• A tree has grown too close to your home.• A tree is located on a construction site.
Do you offer emergency tree removal service?
Yes. M & M Tree Service provides 24-hour emergency tree service. We have the knowledge, expertise, and state-of-the-art equipment to safely and properly deal with any situation.
When is the best time to prune my trees?
Generally, the best time for tree trimming and pruning is during winter. From October to November, most trees are dormant, which makes it easier to identify weak or dangerous branches requiring removal.
Can I trim or shape the trees myself?
It is recommended not to cut and shape the trees by yourself as it can be dangerous and lead to accidents if not done correctly. Trimming and shaping trees require skills and equipment to avoid damaging or killing them. That’s why it is crucial to have reliable tree care specialists do the work for you. At M & M Tree Service, our experienced arborists can get the job done safely and ensure the result will be aesthetically pleasing.

By eliminating them, you can instantly enhance the overall look of your landscape and ensure your family’s safety.

"Working with you was a completely positive experience! We appreciated getting the estimate via email the same day as your initial visit. The workers showed up on time and checked with me several times regarding work in progress. Clean-up was complete and thorough. Scheduling was prompt and easy."

"Dear M & M Tree Service. Your crew trimmed our trees on Tuesday. The head trimmer is an artist. He did such a beautiful job thinning and shaping our oaks. We are so pleased. The team was also very hard-working, professional and did a great job of cleaning up the site afterward. We are so pleased. We are recommending your service to all of our neighbors. Thank you."

"Thank you for the wonderful job your crew did. The palm trees were huge, but it only took you one day to remove them, and you left the place cleaner than when you started."
Chappell Jackson, Oakland, CA
"One week ago, you sent your crew out to do some extensive trimming on a massive 200 year-old oak, along with other tree removal at my recently-purchased home in the upscale community of Kensington. These men did an absolutely outstanding job! Please let me repeat that: These men did an absolutely outstanding job! As a businessman myself, I value the following: quality of workmanship, customer service, safety of operation, timely performance, and a good buy. And I want you to know that your crew delivered! I would also like to thank Mark Menges for writing up what I felt was a very fair and reasonable estimate and honoring it!"
Jeff J. Fetisoff, Kensington, CA
"Thank you so much for your professional and reasonably priced work on our trees. I appreciate how organized you were and how easy you were to coordinate with. In addition, we were impressed by how quickly you were able to send a team out to take care of our trees, how well the job was done and how clean they left our yard and our neighbors’ yards as well. In addition, one of the men working on our trees called me to double-check that he was trimming the tree exactly as I wanted and that he had left my dog in the place I’d asked. Such attention to the details that really matter to customers is admirable, and I’ll definitely recommend you to friends. Thanks again!"
