Marin Arborist's Tree Services

Marin County Arborists offer a full range of tree care services from pruning and removals to consultations and long-term maintenance plans. There is no job we won't consider and some of our past ventures have included high-risk helicopter removals, crane transplants, statuary relocation, and kitten rescue.

Tree Fertilization and Preventative Treatments

Soil that lacks certain nutrients that are vital to a tree’s health must be fortified in order for the tree to flourish. We offer several treatments to fortify soil including deep root fertilization and eco-friendly alternatives. Marin County Arborists also stocks organic soil for new plantings.

Sudden Oak Death is a common, though devastating problem, in Marin County. It is caused by a contagious fungus called Phytophthora remorum that can lead to complete tree failure and death. Luckily, there are preventative options that have been largely effective against the fungus. Although there is no guarantee, Marin County Arborists recommend Agrifos Pentabark to boost your trees’ immune systems and help protect them from infection. Quick removal of dead or dying trees can also ensure that neighboring trees remain healthy.

It is never a good idea to attempt to diagnose or treat trees on your own. We will happily identify fungal affliction and other problems and recommend treatment. The application of pesticides and herbicides is best left to a professional for many reasons. Weather conditions, season and humidity as well as different tree temperaments affect how chemicals work. The wrong combination of these factors can result in disaster.
