Trees are among the joys of life.

Trees dominate the living landscape and are its longest-lived element. Since you will be living with your trees for years, their selection and maintenance merit great care.

At The Shady Tree, our depth of knowledge about the almost stupefying variety of trees and our expertise in caring for trees at every stage of their life cycle mean that you can trust your trees to us.

We care about trees so passionately that we’re eager to share that passion with you. When we undertake a project for you—selecting, planting, or pruning a tree—we take on two clients—you and your tree.

For a good idea of what to look for when you hire an arborist, we recommend guidelines from Canopy, a Palo Alto-based non-profit advocate for the urban forest (http://www.canopy.com).
