"Where the Arborist does the Work, Not just the Bid"

Woodpecker Arborist was created by Brian McGovern with his wife Heather to provide tree care for people in the South Bay Area that want their trees maintained properly by an I.S.A. Certified Arborist with a personal touch.

Brian has over 20 years of experience evaluating, diagnosing, climbing, and caring for trees.  He has been an I.S.A. Certified Arborist #WE-0958A since 1992, is Licensed California Contractor #770742, he has held N.A.A. Tree Care Specialist & Electrical Hazard Awareness Program Certifications, and has also been an I.S.A. Certified Tree Worker.  

With his extensive experience climbing & evaluating trees, Brian has developed his talent for reading a tree's history just from how it grows.  He produces high quality tree assessments using this talent, further investigation, and information from the tree owner. Combining this process and an understanding of his clients needs Brian provides a realistic expectation of how to care for trees in a vast array of scenarios. 

Whether it is evaluation, construction consultation, pruning, or any other tree related issue, Brian is the "goto guy".  He can care for trees in all situations, but isn't afraid to direct you to someone else when his talents are not required for a successful outcome.  Especially when another company may fit the need better. 

In addition to caring for his clients trees, he also helps give back to the tree care community by training others in safe tree climbing and advanced rigging techniques.  Brian also makes himself available for public outreach to help the community at large-
