Blooma Tree Experts is a locally-owned & operated tree care company offering the highest quality tree services in Seattle and the surrounding areas. From tree pruning, cabling, and trimming to emergency removals and Birch tree treatments, our licensed and insured professionals have helped thousands of homeowners fall in love with their landscape. Our Seattle tree workers & ISA-Certified Arborists are standing by to help you too.
Every service begins with a complimentary consultation with an ISA-Certified Arborist. These arborists are not on commission or quota – their sole responsibility is to be a trusted arborist advisor to you.
After the arborist puts together recommendations for you, our Seattle-based office team will walk you through your options before getting to work, so you can make the most informed decision about your trees & landscape possible. We will take care of all your tree service needs in an efficient and friendly manner—taking extra care to ensure our worksite is pristine post-service.
If you're used to painfully slow communication (or lack of communication) with contractors in the past, no need to worry about that with Blooma Tree. We answer emails & texts within 24-48 hours. We return voicemails within 24-48 hours. We answer the phones between roughly 7-7 Monday through Friday and 9-5 Saturday & Sunday (if you don't get through to us, it means we're on the phone with another client usually!).
Even better, we will email you your proposal (or mail it to you if you don't use email), written in easy-to-understand language, so you can review the scope in detail before deciding to proceed. If you're busy, you'll be able to accept the tree work proposal online & pay your deposit online too! We try to make scheduling your tree work as quick & painless as possible.
On the day of work – no need to be present if you don't want to be. Our crew will follow the work orders to a T! And then we'll email you the invoice later that day or week - again, you can just pay online, no need to mail a check or call in to the office unless you want to / have questions for us.
At Blooma Tree Experts, we ensure our neighbors receive the highest level of service possible. From our friendly and professional team to our advanced equipment and industry-leading techniques, you will notice a difference in quality right away.

Seattle Tree Trimming from Blooma Tree
Seattle is home to some of the tallest trees in the country, and as a result, tree trimming is an important part of keeping the city safe and clean. Seattle's tree trimming regulations are designed to protect both residents and property, and to ensure that trees are healthy and able to thrive.
Importantly, Seattle requires that major tree work be completed solely by arborists licensed with the city. That requires meeting specific insurance requirements & education requirements that are stricter than State of Washington Requirements.
With Blooma Tree Experts, you can be confident that you're getting professionals licensed with the city. Our SDCI license number is LIC-TSP-18504 and our SDOT license number is TSP-125.
When it comes to tree trimming, we follow ANSI A300 standards, which are the generally-accepted industry best practices. While there are a few different ways to trim a tree, we will select the method that meets your pruning objectives while also ensuring we are protecting the tree and promoting long-term healthy growth. Some common methods of Seattle tree trimming include:
- Deadwood Pruning: We will remove dead, diseased, or dying woody tissue (generally focused on 1"+ diameter), which is most likely to fall in case of wind/rain. This deadwood can pose a serious safety hazard to people & property.
- Structural Pruning: This involves pruning select branches to improve the tree's structure to promote long-term growth. This can involve removing crossing branches or thinning the interior to allow more light to reach the ground or interior foliage.
- Shaping: Shaping is when branches are trimmed in order to create a certain shape. This method is often used for aesthetic purposes.
- Clearance Pruning: Sometimes you want minimal pruning done to the tree, but need to get the tree away from your house. Tree branches can serve as a rodent highway to your roof – assuming your tree can handle it (which our ISA-Certified Arborists will assess), we will aim to achieve 3-5 feet of roof & building clearance to stop unwanted pests & vermin from entering your home.
- Right-of-Way Pruning: Did you know that homeowners are usually responsible to manage the trees in the right-of-way in front of their home? This can vary by city, but in Seattle, homeowners are generally required to maintain at least 8 feet of sidewalk clearance and 14 feet of road clearance on “street trees”. If you've got street trees in your planting strip, we can handle that street tree pruning plus all the permitting required to do so.
“Blooma tree removed three large leyland cypress trees along with many other trees that had grown on my lot over the years. On the day they were on time, did a great job, and respectful of my neighbors property. Since they've left we've had numerous comments from our other neighbors on how good a job they had done.” - Denis O.
“As always, Blooma was on time, efficient, double-checked the work order, and made sure I was happy with the results. The whole crew is diligent, professional, made sure they protected the rest of my garden while working, and replaced everything when finished.” - Lynda G.
“The Blooma crew did a great job of trimming my neighbor's encroaching tree branches and I can't get over how amazing my 80 ft. Douglas fir looks. By lifting the skirt and trimming the the low hanging stuff my backyard hasn't seen this much light in years. I've used a few tree trimmers in the past and they are definitely number one and I will definitely use their services again. They also did an excellent clean up job.” - Gail V.
“Workers were excellent. Showed up when they said they would, good communicators, worked carefully and efficiently. Cleaned up fully.” - Joe D.
“I had a sickly and stressed plum blossom tree, which I had enjoyed for 18 years and rather than cutting it down, Blooma Tree Experts Inc. removed the dead wood and crossed branches. It looks rather new and more light shines down. I can't wait to see it blossom again next spring. Service was fast and they cleaned up the surrounding area.” - Gil G.
“They were very responsive. Our tree was a Siamese twin splitting down the middle, possibly an emergency situation. Blooma's people secured the split the same day I noticed it, they took (the 2) trees down the next day. Took care of my plants and landscaping as much as possible, which was important to me (And it a tight space with plants and flagstones). I did have a cheaper bid but Blooma gave me more sense of confidence and I don’t regret not taking the lowest offer. (The difference could possibly be that the tree didn’t fall on the neighbor's house and our garage overnight- but we will never know). I liked the crew also.” - Matt G.
“Have been a faithful customer approximately since 2009. Blooma is beyond wonderful. I have always received excellent workmanship. No complaints.The family is professional, courteous, timely, honest, and so nice. Estimates are always accurate.” - Ethel B.
“The Blooma crew showed up on time and worked diligently on the pruning project. The pruning team was well-organized and skilled. This is the first time we have had our trees professionally pruned and we are glad we did.” - Jim P.
“Team of 5 arrived on time, cleaned and raked up all of the debris, cut tree trunks into manageable sizes so we could use later for firewood and chipped the rest.
They are reliable, ethical (won’t cut what isn’t necessary and protect tree life), respectful and they educated us on future plans for our large green belt yard.
We received 3 quotes, theirs was in the middle yet their education, honesty, and ability to listen and come up with a plan that suited both our budget and immediate needs made the difference.
We look forward to working with them again next year.
Just call them, you won’t be disappointed!” - Mandy M.
