Great Job, Fair Price
Arborcare did a great job on removing some trees and undergrowth from our rural property, at a fair price.
I contracted with Arborcare Group to remove trees that were threatening if they came down. Their crew arrived promptly and were obviously very experienced and skilled.
Very happy with service when my neighbor and I wanted some additional cuts made, they came back the next day and handled it efficiently- including cleanup. Would use them again .

Tree Care Bakersfield Tree Service
Almost every homeowner in Bakersfield has come across a tree with loosely-attached branches. In most cases, these are branches that have decayed or detached from the main trunk. When ignored, these branches almost always end up dropping when they are least expected – this often leaves homeowners with property damages or significant injuries.
In Bakersfield, the most common diseases attack trees branch by branch. These diseases often take some time before spreading throughout the tree.
Tree pruning helps homeowners avoid property damages and save their trees from diseases. By removing risky branches from trees, tree pruning helps homeowners avoid spending thousands of dollars on property repairs and hospital bills. By removing diseased branches, tree-cutting professionals in Bakersfield keep diseases from spreading.
We handle tree pruning in Bakersfield and the neighboring areas. In addition to improving tree safety and tree health, our tree pruning service also boosts the beauty of trees. By ensuring your trees are safe, healthy, and aesthetically appealing, our team of tree-cutting professionals gives your commercial – or residential – property a value boost.
Benefits of Hiring Experienced Professionals for Tree Pruning
When pruning trees, working with a team of qualified professionals carries a large number of benefits. In Bakersfield, for example, when homeowners work with our team of tree cutting professionals, they enjoy the following benefits:
1. Property Safety
It is not uncommon for homeowners in Bakersfield to have 100-foot trees standing next to their houses. In some cases, large trees will be standing next to powerlines.
Working with a professional tree pruning team in Bakersfield helps these homeowners avoid suffering property damage.
When working on trees standing next to utilities, our team uses ropes to slowly lower down the cut branches. By carefully directing the falling path of the cut branches, professionals eliminate the risk of property damage.
2. Avoid Costly Hospital Bills
To prune a tree, you have to access its crown. In most cases, the crown sits tens of feet from the ground. Without the right safety gear, the possibility of falling from a tree is usually very high.
A fall from the tree crown can easily put you in a hospital with thousands to pay in hospital bills. What’s worse, a fall from an extremely tall tree can put you in a wheelchair for life.
Letting professionals handle tree pruning for you reduces the risk of injuries. Compared to the amount you pay for professional tree pruning, spending your time on a hospital bed will always be costlier.
3. You Avoid Tree Damage
When done wrong, tree pruning can damage tree health and appearance. It takes years of experience – and years of training – to prune trees without damaging their health and aesthetic appeal.
Professional tree pruners have pruned thousands of trees. Their years of experience help them ensure they are only removing the right branches from the tree crown. This leaves trees with better health, better appearance, and improved safety.
4. You Save Time
The regular homeowner in Bakersfield does not have advanced tree pruning tools. During DIY tree pruning, homeowners often rely on manual tree climbing and manual cutting tools. All this turns tree pruning into a time-consuming venture.
Hiring professionals to handle tree pruning allows you to focus on other important tasks. Also, instead of taking days on tree pruning, professionals help you complete tree pruning in hours.
Tree Pruning Tips
While we do not recommend DIY tree pruning on large trees, Do It Yourself tree pruning may be effective on trees under 20 feet. If small trees are standing away from utilities, the risks of property damage or injury are very low.
However, when trimming small trees, keep the tips below in mind to avoid tree damage:
- Only remove branches whose diameter falls below 5 cm. Branches with a diameter of more than 10 cm should only be removed to improve safety, improve tree health, or restore tree beauty.
- Branches creating a U-shaped angle when attaching to the main tree trunk should be allowed to remain on the tree. Branches creating a V-shaped angle can be removed.
- Use a sharp cutting tool. This will help you avoid injuring your tree.
- Focus on removing younger branches. Unlike older branches, younger branches are more manageable. Also, younger branches do not scar easily.
- Sanitize your cutting tools between trees. This will help you avoid spreading diseases from one tree to the other.
- Seek advice from a qualified professional. If you have any questions, always contact an arborist. This will help you avoid making mistakes that could kill your tree.
Preventative Tree Pruning
When the branches on a tree crown turn into hazards, preventative tree pruning plays a key role in ensuring the branches do not fall and cause harm. During preventative tree pruning, professionals focus on removing:
- Branches threatening to fall.
- Dead or dying branches.
- Branches showing signs of decay.
- Branches broken by strong winds.
- Branches that look like they may pose a safety risk in the future.
Preventative pruning is also used in circumstances where low-lying branches are blocking visibility on roads. This type of preventative tree pruning helps push the tree crown to about two-thirds of the tree’s height. Improving visibility, this type of preventative pruning helps homeowners avoid accidents on walkways and roads.
