Company Description
Arborwell was born in 2001 in Castro Valley, CA when Peter Sortwell was let go during a restructuring of an international landscape and tree care company. Peter had worked there for 15 years, and had started their tree division and grown it across the United States. This left him in a quandary; in the small horticultural industry, he could not find another company with which he felt his specialized skills would fit. Our philosophy encompasses more than simple pruning and maintenance. We address the needs of our client, as well as the health of their trees, and develop a proactive management plan to ensure long-term vitality, safety, and value. Arborwell offers the full gamut of tree care services. From pruning and maintenance, to removals and Plant Health Care, we have you covered.
