A Little Bit of History

Robert's grandfather managed the trees in the orchards of Saratoga during 1940s and 50s, and his father has been running his own tree service since the 1980s. Robert grew up under the training of his arborist father, uncle, and other well trained tree professionals. From childhood Robert has been working with trees and increasing his knowledge of arboriculture along with his brothers, two have since become arborists.

Robert as a kid

At a young age Robert decided to own his own tree company and in his early teens his father was taking him to seminars, arborist training courses, and spending hours each week teaching him the art of arboriculture and the profession of an arborist. Robert passed the certified arborist exam at age 20.

Robert owns and operates the San Jose Tree Services Company and enjoys providing quality tree care and management to the residents of the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding area.
