Tree Removal

TLC2 Tree Service is a 4th Generation Family Owned tree service that has been removing trees safely, regardless of their size, condition or location from residents and businesses in the Greater Bay Area and Tri Valley since 1952. Our extensive experience and high standards combined with our expert climbers and state of the art equipment make even the toughest jobs easy.
Reasons to remove a tree

Tree location is causing damage to home or building foundation.
Tree is blocking sunlight and effecting the growth of other trees
Tree is dead, dying, diseased and is a hazard to person or property
Tree location is in the way of home improvement or long term landscaping plan
Tree needs to be replaced with a more suitable specimen for the area.

After removal of a tree TLC2 will completely clean up all the debris, chip branches and cut the tree trunk into manageable pieces. We haul away all wood or if customer wishes we will leave it for them.

Tree Trimming/Pruning

TLC2 Tree Service has extensive experience in trimming and pruning all types of trees and shrubs to maintain their health and beauty. Like any other part of your home or business property, trees need to be maintained. Many problems can be avoided when trees are regularly and properly pruned. Protect your landscape investment by hiring only a professional tree care specialist to properly trim or prune your trees.

After careful evaluation and consultation with the customer TLC2 will determine what trimming techniques will be best for the health and beauty of the tree(s) and overall landscaping aesthetics.

Thinning – removing branches to increase the light penetration and air movement through the tree
Raise the skirt – remove lower branches to provide clearance for buildings, pedestrians, views and desired landscape effect
Tree Shaping – maintain the desired form of a tree so that it blends well with existing landscaping or its location
Balance – This is a tree shaping technique that creates a visual balance of the limbs of the tree to make a tree safer and more aesthetically pleasing
Pruning -proper removal of diseased or dead wood to encourage healthy growth, flowering or fruit development of a tree
Crown Reduction – used when trees have grown too large, giving it a more natural appearance. This technique is healthier for trees than topping.
Deadwood Removal – removal of dead, dying, diseased, crowded and weakly attached branches from the crown of the tree to increase airflow and reduce some pest infestations.

Stump Grinding/Removal
Stump removal by grinding is an economical and efficient way to remove tree stumps from your yard or landscape.

The tree stumps and shrub stumps are ground into mulch, six to ten inches below ground level, which can be filled with the ground mulch mixed with your dirt.
