Tree services in Ventura County are required to be licensed by the state of California, such as with the D49 license specifically for tree services which allows them to perform tree pruning, tree removal, stump removal or stump grinding, and tree or limb guying.  

If arborists or tree care contractors in Ventura County have employees, they're required to have workers' compensation insurance for your protection.  If a worker is injured on your property and the tree contractor doesn't have worker's comp, you could be liable to pay for the injuries and your own insurance may not cover that cost.

Tree care companies in Ventura County are not required by law to have general liability insurance; however, all tree contractors bearing The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 designation have general liability insurance coverage which reimburses their client in the event of any damages, in addition to passing all other requirements for certification as Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls with previous customers, hiring only documented workers, verified license and workers' comp insurance, clean complaint record, and more.

After heavy rains or high winds, your trees can suffer. Limbs litter the yard and can get tangled in power lines. Aside from the unattractive appearance and cleanup associated with the aftermath of a storm, there may also be serious dangers involved. Large limbs need to be removed from your roof and anything near power lines must be carefully extracted by a professional.

If you've found yourself in this situation, it's imperative that you contact a local tree service contractor or arborist. With special tree service equipment and thoroughly trained employees, good tree companies can safely remove or trim precariously positioned limbs so you don't have to climb a ladder and risk breaking your neck.

Even without a storm, trees often need trimming or treatment for disease. Again, a professional tree service or certified arborists can help.

Tree Service Companies in Ventura County Perform Numerous Services

There are many tree-related problems that only professional tree services can remedy. It's usually not advisable to attempt to resolve these issues yourself, particularly with dangerously dangling limbs or anything near power lines. Therefore, services for tree removal or tree trimming are essential.

Before starting any procedures (including emergencies), most tree services assess the situation in its entirety with aerial inspection, hazard evaluation, structural analysis and consultation. Once the situation has been fully inspected, tree surgeons or tree arborists may decide to perform tree shaping, tree trimming, tree pruning, topping, tree transplantation, tree bracing, root zone fertilization, height reductions, crown reductions, tree repair, or hopefully, tree preservation.

The tree services in Oxnard, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks and Ventura CA can also perform the appropriate forms of vegetation management at your request, such as lot clearing, disease management, stump removal, dead wood removal, ivy removal, blackberry removal, or poison oak removal. Tree services in Ventura County approach the problem in different manners, including cabling, portable milling, crane service, or climbing spikes, the latter being potentially hazardous to a living tree. You should inquire about these techniques before hiring tree services. If the risk associated with the procedure is minimal, some tree services will even rent some of their equipment for your personal use, such as stump grinders and heavy equipment.

Tree services are also trained to attend to various potentially problematic situations, such as fire road maintenance, regular clearance for fire safety, construction damage prevention, sudden oak death, spraying, weed control, insect and disease suppression, and other preventive maintenance. Tree services throughout Ventura County will also repair storm damage with removal, limbing, wind damage repair and view restoration. If you're concerned about preserving clippings, some tree services re-use or sell removed vegetation in the form of wood chipping, brush chipping, or firewood. Tree services in Ventura County usually have an ISA certified tree arborist on staff for reports or consultation, and adhere to tree service industry standards.

Tree contractors in Ventura County are equipped with specialized tools to efficiently remove dangerous branches or restore the appearance of overgrowth. They employ pole tree pruners, chainsaws, aerial lifts, chippers, or stump grinders for all of your tree removal needs.
