The #1 Los Angeles Tree Trimming Company

Tree trimming and pruning is often carried out at great heights, using heavy machinery. Therefore, it is very dangerous for homeowners to attempt the work themselves. By getting help from professionals, like those at Green Leaf Zone, you’ll eliminate the risk to your health and any potential damage to neighboring property.

At Green Leaf Zone, we perform each tree trimming job according to the highest possible standards. Our goal is to provide each and every client with the same level of professionalism, integrity, and high-quality work. Put simply, we work efficiently and offer our services at a fair price.

Did You Know that Tree Trimming is an Essential Service?

On March 19th, 2020 the governor of California, Gavin Newsom issued an order to shelter in place to combat the spread of COVID-19. To minimize exposure to the virus, the order states that only ‘essential businesses’ may continue operations during this period. Green Leaf Zone is considered an essential business because our work directly contributes to the safety of your property and the safety of the public.

In addition to tree trimming services, we can also provide the following essential services during this time:

At present, the quarantine order has been extended until at least April 19th. This means that many homeowners may find it difficult to care for their property in advance of the summer heat. We urge you to contact our team for a free property inspection. Our skilled professionals will ensure that it abides by all fire code regulations and we can provide a free estimate for any brush clearing or tree trimming services that you may require.

Do I Really Need Tree Trimming Services?

Taking care of your trees is important, and trimming is a regular part of this process. Although trees are a product of nature, sometimes they need a helping hand from trained experts to manage issues such as overgrowth and disease. In fact, according to the LA Controller Office, “a tree that is trimmed or inspected annually requires less time and effort than a tree that is trimmed once every decade”. Prolonged periods of deferred maintenance increase the likelihood of tree failure or other conditions that require emergency tree services (which is often more expensive). Tree pruning can create valuable benefits for your trees. Each time that we prune a tree, we’re helping it become healthier and stronger – ultimately extending its lifespan. Oftentimes, the most unsightly branches are also the most unhealthy.

This means that they’re more likely to break under natural pressures such as high winds or rainstorms. When branches break unexpectedly, there is no way to control how they might fall or what they could damage in the process. This puts everyone on your property at risk, particularly pets or young children. Most professional arborists recommend tree trimming every three years, even if you can’t see specific loose-hanging branches. Trimming diseased or overgrown branches allows the lower branches to receive the light and water they need for renewed growth whilst simultaneously eliminating the threat of damage caused by any falling deadwood. Tree trimming is also very important if you own commercial property.

Proper maintenance offers protection from liability in any potential lawsuits that may arise from falling branches. The best defense against these cases is proactive tree trimming. Furthermore, keeping your landscaping presentable will help you make a positive impression on first-time customers as well as repeat visitors. Well-maintained vegetation signals that you have a high level of professionalism, which makes it easier for customers to make buying decisions. This is particularly important for businesses that generate most of their revenue through storefronts, rather than online. We advise all property owners to avoid the risk of injury by hiring a professional tree trimming company. At Green Leaf Zone, we are equipped with state-of-the-art machinery to ensure the job gets done, according to the highest possible standards.

Our Services & Specialties

We offer a variety of tree services in Ventura County and the surrounding areas. We’ve listed some of our specialties below:

  • Tree Removal
  • Stump Grinding
  • Brush Clearing

According to the LA Controller’s Office: “overgrown or damaged trees present a public safety risk because they can: (1) impede the public right-of-way; (2) cause harm to pedestrians or property as a result of fallen trees/branches or sidewalks buckled by tree roots; or (3) interfere with power lines. Dead, dying or decaying trees can be very unstable, which poses a safety risk to both people and buildings in the area. These trees need to be removed to prevent any damage to property or human life.

In some cases, if a tree was planted in close proximity to your home, it can begin to threaten the structural integrity of the building. A complete tree removal is often the best option in these circumstances. We offer competitively priced removals which are delivered by our professional and experienced team.

If left to their own devices, tree stumps can cause an array of problems. Firstly, there is the fact that tree stumps can be an eye-sore in your well-kept grounds, and present potential tripping hazards for people of all ages.

Neglected tree stumps can cause bad smells to emanate from odorous root rot. Stumps can also attract insects such as termites as the stump’s roots continue to grow. Finally, particularly large tree stumps can obstruct waterways and prevent proper drainage.

Grinding a tree stump is not something a homeowner should attempt alone. In fact, many landscaping services do not have the equipment and expertise necessary for safe and efficient stump removal. Our industrial grade wood chipper is equipped to handle the tough, thick wood of your tree stump. Smaller wood chippers have been known to break or jam when used for large stumps.

Wildfires are always a concern in Southern California, particularly during the warmer summer months. One of the requirements from local fire departments is to make sure that your property or business is free from brush so that fires don’t have vegetation with which to continue their rapid spread.

Have you received a fire department non-compliance notice? If so, you’ll need to clear your brush quickly in order to avoid a large fine in Ventura County. Here at Green Leaf Zone our expert team gets to work fast, clearing large swathes of brush quickly and efficiently. We can often clear a property of brush within one day. We use the latest technology which minimizes the impact on the soil, trees and any wildlife.

Our Tree Trimming Service Areas

When you’re looking for tree trimmers, it’s important to consider where the company is based. At Green Leaf Zone, we work with property owners throughout Los Angeles County. This sprawling metropolis encompasses over 503 square miles and offers unique local vegetation such as palm trees, lemon trees, maple trees, redwoods, and more. As a leading Los Angeles-based tree service provider, we’re very familiar with all the local plant life as well as the brush clearance requirements set by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Our comprehensive knowledge of brush clearance requirements makes us the perfect choice for your tree services. For example, according to the latest requirements, all trees in Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones (VHFHSZ) must be trimmed up so the foliage is no closer than 10 feet from the outlet of a chimney. If you have any trees taller than 18 feet, the lower branches must be trimmed so no foliage is within six feet of the ground. The majority of trees will be shorter than 18” feet, and in those cases, the LAFD asks property owners to remove lower branches to 1/3 of their height and remove all dead material from the ground. These are just a few of the requirements that we can help with!

We proudly serve the following cities and surrounding areas: Santa Monica, Pasadena, Montebello, Hawthorne, San Fernando, Calabasas, Sherman Oaks, Westwood, Riverside County, Beverly Hills, Culver City, West Hollywood, Huntington Park, Encino, Inglewood, Glendale, Burbank, San Jose, Orange County, Santa Clara, and Rancho Palos Verdes.
