Tree Care Incorporated offers a wide range of eco-friendly tree services all with one goal in mind, complete customer satisfaction. Tree Care Incorporated is a full spectrum professional tree service company providing the highest quality of service to residential, commercial, and governmental clients throughout the greater Sacramento area.
Trees are assets to your home and community, and deserve the best possible care. They provide shade, beauty and character to your home and yard. The last thing you want is to cut down a treasured tree that doesn't need to be removed. But a sick or damaged tree can be a danger to both your house and your family.
As one of Sacramento's leaders in the arboriculture industry, the staff at Tree Care Incorporated are dedicated to protecting the health, beauty, and value of your trees.
Tree Care Incorporated, in its current form is the product of a corporate merger of Austin B. Carroll & Son, Inc. and Sta-Green Tree Service, which was previously a division of Tree Care, Inc. This merger became effective May 1, 1992 and in doing so created the largest and most credible professional arboricultural service company in Northern California.
Austin B. Carroll & Son
Austin B. Carroll was commonly referred to as an expert on and protector of trees.
Born in the Glenn County town of Orland and raised in Berkeley, Mr. Carroll developed his interest in trees as a boy. Suffering from polio, he was told by a doctor that tree-climbing and tree-trimming would help strengthen his legs.
He secured a contract to trim trees for the city of Berkeley in 1938. After serving in the Army during World War II, he took a job as an arborist with the state Division of Highways and arrived in Sacramento in 1953, starting the Sacramento Municipal Utility District's (SMUD) tree-trimming division.
As a true champion of trees, he was instrumental in preserving and expanding Sacramento's cherished canopy of trees and in establishing the Sacramento Tree Foundation. Mr. Carroll served a term as the foundation's president and was a past president of the Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture.
In 1962, he started his own company, Austin Carroll's Tree Service, which he ran for nearly 20 years.
Gruff and outspoken about the public's responsibility for trees, Mr. Carroll was the nemesis of incompetent tree trimmers, heedless developers and others who disregarded the proper care of trees.
On more than one occasion he said developers like to cut down trees and then name streets after them.
As the owner of a tree-care service, he said some suburbanites would whine about mulberry trees depositing leaves in their swimming pools. People would call and ask him to get rid of the trees.
He'd say, “Fill in the damn pool”.
His son, Willie, joined as a partner in 1975 and six years later Austin retired. Upon Austin's retirement Willie assumed control of Austin B. Carroll & Son, Inc. and today is President of Tree Care Incorporated.
Sta-Green Tree Service
Sta-Green Tree Service was founded in 1974 by Michael Hutnick (now retired). Sta-Green also serviced the greater Sacramento area and became one of the leading tree care companies in Northern California.
