Tree Services in Anne Arundel County

Since Bay Area Tree Care is a local company, we know Anne Arundel County and the surrounding areas like the back of our hand. Whether it’s tree removal in Pasadena or repairing storm damaged trees in Severna Park, our knowledge of the neighborhood is one of our best assets. We understand that tree services in Annapolis can get costly, but our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to maximize efficiency saving you time and money on your tree care. Arnold is a beautiful place to live, but a strong storm can wreak havoc on the wooded terrain, so trust in us for all your tree work in Anne Arundel County.

Owner of the company came out and gave me an estimate same day I called. His estimate was lower than competitive bids. He also offered me advice on my other trees as he is an arborist. I was not home when the tree was removed but it was gone when I got home and there was no property damage. It’s as if the tree was never there – stump and all! Service was fantastic – I will recommend them to friends and family.
