These simple things show just how trees are valued in California, particularly in the Bay Area. However, caring for trees is very different from tending to one’s garden at home. Often, neighborhoods and households are better off calling San Jose tree care experts, like Bay Area Tree Specialists, than attempt the task by themselves as tree care can be very dangerous without the right tools and skills.
Take, for instance, the act of pruning. Some trees like the Valley oak (Quercus lobata), are actually best pruned in the winter months. Reducing the oak tree’s size while it lacks leaves or buds often helps minimize its chances of contracting diseases or being infested with bugs; things that usually occur during summer.
