Tree Management Experts

Consulting Arborist
Certified Arborist
Tree Risk Assessment Qualified

Tree Management Experts is a small consulting company that serves San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area cities.  Roy Leggitt is the company founder and owner, and has been an Arborist for over 25 years.

Most Arborists are missing certain consulting qualifications.  Many have focused their attention on tree service operations (pruning and removing trees), but this is not enough when you need a consultant.  Similarly, consultants often do no have the experience needed to hold a contractor's license, as required to provide pruning specifications.  Tree Management Experts is fully qualified with all proper licenses, certifications and experience to bridge these needs and provide competent consulting services for a wide range of needs.

Scientific Training: Roy holds a Plant Science degree (BS) with an emphasis on Ornamental Horticulture.  He has actively participated in obtaining current knowledge with many years of continuing education and reading of scientific material.

Scientific training has taught Roy to have systematic thinking and to consider information from related disciplines.  Good science requires good judgment, and judgment is the result of education and experience.  With many years working on large and small projects, we are prepared to give you more sophisticated solutions to your tree and horticulture problems.

Hazard Trees: Roy has qualified for certification under the Certified Tree Risk Assessor program, now called the Tree Risk Assessor Qualification or TRAQ program.  The knowledge and skills required for assessment of hazard conditions in trees is enormous, and requires a thorough understanding of tree physiology and a working knowledge of biomechanics.

Value: Although price shopping is useful with products and some services, it may not serve you so well with consulting services.  Our costs and hourly rates reflect the need to maintain certifications, our experience, licenses and insurance.  Lower costs generally mean that you will receive lower efficiency, lower quality results and will be using a less qualified person.  We seek to give you the best value possible for the fees we charge.

Licensed Contractor: So why should a Consulting Arborist be a licensed contractor?  The State of California Contractor's License Board (CSLB) recognizes Tree Service as a specialty service that requires a Contractor's License.  The CSLB requires that a Consultant be a contractor if they provide:

1) Contracted Tree Service
2) Sub-contracted Tree Service
3) Oversight of any Licensed Contractor, Tree Service included
4) Written specifications for any Licensed Contractor
5) Service as an Owner's Representative with a Licensed Contractor

Most Consulting Arborists don't have a Contractor's License for Tree Service and therefore don't have any authority with contractors of any type, nor can they legally provide specifications, direction or oversight of contracted services.

Tree Management Experts maintains a Contractor's License for Tree Service to be able to provide full service consulting services, no questions asked, and we are insured accordingly.

Insurance: The Arborist's role is to provide you with expert advice on managing urban trees.  Trees in urban areas can create substantial liabilities for the property owner.  We are fully insured with General Liability, Professional Liability (Errors and Omissions), Worker's Compensation and Business Auto.  We protect ourselves and we protect you.

  7. We have had a lot of professional work done on the trees on our property. Keeping them healthy is one of our highest priorities. They give us shade, air, and sometimes fruit, they're almost part of the family. I like the idea of making sure that the service has some more scientific background in arbor care.

  8. My grandmother always said that its worth the price to get higher quality service. I agree with you: price shopping isn't everything. There are so many things involved in the pros/cons of tree maintenance services that to do it only on price negates the value of the training, experience and licenses. What we all should look for is value - not price. And that works for just about everything.

  9. We have had this wonderful tree in our yard for as long as I can remember. We recently found out that some of the roots are damaging the basement siding. Is there a way we can cut the roots away without getting rid of the entire tree?

  12. I really like the idea of arborists doing consulting work when it comes to tree maintenance. It is interesting how different trees can require different approaches. Take a weeping willow for example. The branches are quite manageable, but the roots are quite invasive. This is the kind of consulting that people should be getting when it comes to tree services.

  14. Our neighbors usually always have to get their trees trimmed yearly. The power lines run right next to them and when the wind pick ups, there are usually power outages. We owns trees but they are smaller trees and don't cause any issues needing a tree service specialist.

  18. It's good that you posted something about the prices of your consulting firm. Consultancy firms always have a hard time conveying value to the client and justifying their cost based on that value. I think you've done a good job here though.

  21. I was not aware of the profession of arborist when I was younger. I didn't even know people could be paid to take care of plants and yards because my family did it for themselves. There are a lot of jobs out there that I was not aware of until I got older.

  31. I think it would be fun to work with tree trimming services. I really like working outside and I also like climbing up things. It think it is really interesting how they can trim a tree from the top down.

  33. Having trees in your yard is a great way to add to the appearance of your home or business. Though, there will always be the problem trees that start growing too close to your home. Those are the ones you either have to get rid of or trim down to size. Trimming would be the better option since you get to keep the tree. http://www.meadtree.com/services/tree-care.php

    1. Joey, I agree that it is always a better option to keep the tree if you have the choice. Trees are a great resource and vital to clean air. At the same time if the tree is causing problems or is infected or infested, it may need to be removed completely. I had a tree that I loved but it got termites and rather than have them infest my home I opted to have the tree removed completely. http://www.edmondstree.com/SERVICES/

  37. It's good to know that there are highly qualified people who are involved with tree services. Knowing how the tree grows, where it will grow the best, and how to even remove them would take a lot of skill and knowledge. I've never had to use tree services before, but I know that there are good companies that will do a good job if I ever need them.

  39. I have always loved having trees in my yard. However, lately my trees have been getting bigger and are starting to take over. It would be really nice to be able to have my yard back again. If we removed just a few of the trees in our yard we might be able to plant a garden. I wonder how much it would cost to have something like this done.
