Tree Maintenance and Care

Trees need careful irrigation, mulching, and pruning.  Our landscapers are constantly monitoring and adjust the irrigation to keep our trees healthy while staying within the water budget.  Please do not turn off your front yard irrigation.  Many trees, including our Coastal Redwoods, rely on this irrigation to survive the summer months.   Contact the association manager if you notice any trees that need more irrigation or special attention.


The HOA hires certified arborists to evaluate all of the trees in Kentfield Commons twice a year, usually in the spring and the fall.  They perform the pruning that is professionally recommended to produce healthy, structurally sound trees as well as to maintain clearance from buildings and of streets.  The HOA only performs professionally recommended pruning by HOA hired certified arborists.

·    Emergency Storm Damage: Contact the Association Manager if you have a downed limb.  The HOA clears broken branches as soon as the arborist can be scheduled to come onsite.  This usually takes from 1 - 7 days depending on the amount of storm damage in the area.

·    Homeowners who have special request for tree trimming can complete a Tree Trimming Request.  The arborist evaluates all non-emergency tree trimming requests and competes the approved tree trimming twice a year; typically, once in the spring and once in the fall/early winter. 

Please note: The HOA's arborist evaluates trees for the above-ground pruning that is included in the HOA's regular landscape maintenance only.  If you have any other concerns about your trees, please consult with a Certified Arborist of your choice.  Homeowners are responsible for tree removals and replacements, root barriers, and other projects related to the care of their properties.    ​
