  • “John was very open, and gave us a good bid on our big oak tree. His workers went out of their way for me, and I bought them lunch. They’re all just good guys. Good work, and low bids— that’s what makes the world go ‘round!”

  • “I’ve been using Traverso Tree for 10 years, and their work is excellent. They are reliable and neat. I have them clean and prune my 25 palm trees anually, as well as remove huge, 30-year-old trees. They’ve also done work for my church in Danville, and they’ve been very happy with them as well!”

  • “They’ve done work for my whole family! We’ve been using them for years, and they do wonderful work. We’ve gotten estimates from other tree services, but Traverso has been the best. They just did some eucalyptus trees for us, and recently cut some 100 foot tall trees for my mother! They are our family tree service!”

Did you know that a substantial, flourishing tree can add as much as $50,000 or more to the value of your home? Keeping your trees healthy and looking good is a smart investment.

John Traverso’s career as a tree specialist spans over 25 years. After starting his own landscaping business in 1981, he became a Certified Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) in 1986, and within a few years was concentrating exclusively on tree service, offering his customers trimming and shaping, tree and stump removal, cabling, fertilizing and aeration, health evaluations and treatment.

A former president of the California Arborists Association, John has dedicated his time to learning, practising and educaing proper arboriculture to his crew and others in the industry.

Today, Traverso Tree Service employs 18 tree specialists – including three Certified Arborists, and 12 Certified Tree Workers.

“We’re very careful about the people we hire,” says John. “We give them rigorous on-the-job training, send them to arboriculture seminars, even have them read books on tree care. Some of our employees are so knowledgeable, they’ve become instructors themselves.”

All this training has paid off. John’s company is one of the most highly regarded tree services in the East Bay, known for its courteous, efficient, reliable, hard-working crew, and for consistently doing a top-quality job.

“80% of our clients are residential, including numerous homeowner’s associations,” John explains. “The cities in Contra Costra County use only a handful of ‘preferred’ tree companies, and Traverso is one of them.”

Traverso Tree Service offers the full range of services, but they do not do chemical spraying. “Pesticides kill the good insects along with the bad ones, and that throws things out of balance,” John explains.

“We prefer to use some of the natural methods of pest control now available and which have been proven to work.”

John provides free estimates throughout the Bay Area. “When we give an estimate, we absolutely honor that price. And, of course, we guarantee our work 100%.”
