***** Castillo Tree Service is rated 5.0 out of 5 stars, based on 60 reviews!

  • *****

    I just used Gabriel today to trim a large maple tree--Gabriel and his crew did a great job,cleaned up very well,all at a reasonable price.

  • *****

    Gabriel and his team arrived 30 minutes early and were setup and in the tree within 10 minutes. I've seen some tree trimming experts not exercise safe practice techniques but his team is not the case. At the end the rest of Gabriel's team (5 guys) showed up to clean up the branches and leaves and left the front yard spotless. I will definitely use Castillo Tree Service again.

  • *****

    Super competitive pricing and very flexible for my time request for cutting down my big yucky spider tree. Will definitely recommend

  • *****

    I had some reservations that all these 5 star reviews were real but I can say most assuredly, he's for real. When I hired Gabriel his estimate was nearly half of my first quote so I thought why not? The first guy (with the high estimate) looked at my tree and his primary reaction can only be described as "fear". It was a huge Monterey Pine and he kept pointing out all the ways this was going to be a difficult job. When Gabriel came out he kept walking around the tree looking up not saying a word, then studied it from another angle another angle again and again. Finally he completely relaxed and quoted this amazingly low price and his demeanour gave me total confidence he knew exactly what he was getting into. In fact, I think he had already mapped out in his head which branch was coming down when and what the ground crew would be doing. When he was actually doing the job it was like a predator attacking a prey. He was fast, efficient and left the yard cleaner than when he got there. I highly recommend him.

    Today, Gabriel and his 5 man crew did an outstanding job trimming/cutting trees on both sides of my backyard. They were on time, left my yard and my neighbors' yard in perfect condition. They cleaned up both of our yards so that we didn't have to do a thing after they left. It took them 2 hours to cut, clean and haul everything away.
    You can't go wrong hiring Gabriel, Castillo Tree Service. They are numero uno!!!!!!!!
    Gabriel at Castillo Tree Service deserves **********at least 10 stars.

  • *****

    Timely, efficient, clean, courteous and a fair price....what more can you ask for.

    A large tree branch fell in my yard. Gabriel arrived same day I called for the estimate. We agreed on the price and scheduled for the following day to remove the large branch and trim two large overgrown trees.

    Gabriel arrived on time and made quick work of the job. This guy does not play around. He also made sure the neighbors yard was clear of debris. He kept to the best rule of maintenance and construction "always leave a site better when you leave than when you start"

    I will highly recommend Castillo to anyone needing tree services.

  • *****

    So glad that I read these Yelp reviews and hired Castillo Tree Service! Gabriel and staff were quick to return my online request, arrived promptly and very fair price quoted! Work was also on time and excellant !

  • *****

    I would give 10 stars if available.
    Gabriel returned my inquiry in less than an hour and stopped by for an estimate the same day. Gabriel and his team completed the requested work the next day and left the area cleaner/neater than when they arrived. I already have additional work requests in his queue - highly recommend.

  • *****

    Gabriel and is team are awesome! Excellent work, service with a smile, and no one is going to beat his pricing. He even came to my house on a SUNDAY!! Thanks Gabriel! You're my tree service company FOR LIFE!!!

  • *****

    Gabriel had the best quote by far, to trim and lower a 50' ash tree. Gabriel and his crew showed up right on time and did an awesome and very professional job in less than 2 hours. They ground up all the limbs and branches and cleaned up everything.
    The tree looks great now.
    I highly recommend Castillo Tree Service.

  • *****

    Gabriel is a star ! He was prompt as soon as we contacted him. He was there within 20 minutes to give a quote. He gave a competitive quote. There was a mother company which gave a similar quote but we were very impressed with Gabriel's promptness.

    He was also available the next day itself to remove a giant Yucca in our backyard. On the day of the tree removal he arrived and was on time, he also agreed to remove a few other small trees for a reasonable charge.

    When he left, the place was debris free. Excellent service. Thank you Gabriel.

  • *****

    Good service and price
    Did a great job within the time stated. Cleaned up garden and street
    Trees look great
    Removed and ground 2 trees and trimmed tops 4 cypress

  • *****

    Gabriel and his crew are as professional as they get. Of course when you're shopping for any kind of professional service, it makes sense to get a few bids, but Gabriel's was shockingly better. He was quick to schedule the work and from the time his rigs pulled up, he proved I made the best choice. Not only was his crew quick, efficient, professional, and safe, but they made sure my yard was completely spotless when they left. If I could give more stars I would! I'm certainly telling my friends! You guys are awesome!

  • *****

    These guys are professionals. They trimmed my front yard tree, which has quite a few utility lines running through it for a very reasonable price. They also cleaned up everything and swept the sidewalk. I'd definitely call them again.

  • *****

    I needed to get rid off a huge tree stump on Saturday, so I called many companies on Yelp. Two out of five companies answered my call. One said that they can come for a quote 10 days later. But, Gabriel from Castillo Tree Services showed up within two hours, gave a fair price and 3 hours later the stump was gone! He was very friendly, respectful and did a great job!.

  • *****

    These guys are the best! So good, efficient, nice, professional.

  • *****

    Big thank you to Gabriel and his crew!!!

    They were super professional and a pleasure to work with. I needed to remove two large juniper pine trees, clean up another large tree plus a bunch of miscellaneous yard work. They did everything I asked for and then went out of their way to leave my whole backyard impeccable. They were also really easy to work with - Gabriel was punctual for both the quote and the day of work, offered a great price, and did FANTASTIC work!

    We will definitely be calling Gabriel and his team again for other jobs. Thank you. Thank you.

  • *****

    Gabriel and his crew are amazing team. The price was super reasonable and the job was totally professional. They came before 7 am and started working at 7 am and the job was done quickly and I was totally amazed on the team work.
    After the job , they clean up pretty good and the property was spotless like nothing happened except for the huge tree at my backyard in gone.
    I will surely be calling them for their services and I will not hesitate to recommend them to anybody.
    Thanks Gabriel and Crew, you guys are the best !!!

  • *****

    Gabriel and his crew had great service with a reasonable price. They showed up in time and get the work done in 5 hours. Would recommend them!

  • *****

    Castillo tree service was great. I message him on yelp which he responded fast gave me a great price. They came out on time got the tree out in a hour and cleaned up the mess. I wish they would of got the stump down lower. However the job was great and I will recommend them to people.

  • *****

    I only have great things to say about Gabriel's service! Most reasonable rate, polite, prompt and hassle free! I searched for tree trimming services yesterday and Gabriel came within 30 minutes for an estimate. He gave us tree trimming appointment for the next day, which was important for us because others were available only after 2-3 weeks. I received a few other estimates too but his was the most reasonable. Now we have a beautiful trimmed tree and a clean yard! If you are looking for excellent tree trimming services for best rate, look no further!

    Castillo tree service was great. I message him on yelp which he responded fast gave me a great price. They came out on time got the tree out in a hour and cleaned up the mess.

  • *****

    We had some thin but tall trees that started leaning on our home after some needed rainfall, and we did not feel confident taking care of it ourselves. We priced out a few local places and Castillo's pricing was competitive and had faster availability. They came out and were able to give us an estimate right away and scheduled a crew to come back a couple of days later. Their 3 person crew was friendly, efficient, and cleaned up afterwards and left no trace. My toddler was also stoked that they found a toy ball in the process and placed it safely to the side while they demolished the trees.

    I would definitely call upon these folks again.

  • *****

    I thought I wrote a review when Gabriel removed trees from my yard last year, but I cannot find it. In any event...Castillo Tree Service is the BOMB. Gabriel and his gang provided the most expedient and extraordinary service. They were prompt and the work was done swiftly. They hauled away the debris and left the yard tidy. Whenever I need tree services...they are at the top of my speed dial list. Rock on guys!

  • *****

    Gabriel and Team are professional, courteous, and very reasonable for price. They took down a 50 ft pine in one day and left nothing but a small patch of dirt and a few wood chips, thank you!

  • *****

    Showed up ten minutes early to determine proposal. Showed up 30 minutes early to do the job (a tough, big Maple stump next to a concrete retaining wall). Estimate was reasonable, excellent job on removal and clean-up. Strongly recommend Gabriel and his crew for any tree or other landscape work.

  • *****

    Great service. Fair price. They came early, quick, efficient and safe from beginning to end. They also cleaned up the whole front and back yard. You never would have known they were there. Even after they were done I asked that a couple of trees be pruned back a little more and they did what I asked and then cleaned up the yard all over again. They lay down boards on my deck to protect the wood and made sure the big branches didn't fall full force to the ground. Good attention to detail.

  • *****

    * Showed up at agreed upon time (ten min before actually)
    * Clarified work before starting
    * Went straight to work
    * Very fast but safe and efficient. (gently lowered larger pieces)
    * Friendly
    * Fair price
    * Left area cleaner than when they started
    * Would recommend to family and friends
    * Would/will hire again in the future

  • *****

    I had a tall pine that was hanging over my neighbors roof and needed to be removed. I saw the great reviews on Gabriel so I called him. He was very accommodating and came out early the next morning to give me a quote. Very fair price so I didn't even bother with other quotes. We made an appointment for my day off at 7:30 a.m. At 7:15 a crew of 6 showed up. They did an excellent job. I also had them thin two trees in the front. They were careful not to damage the fence under the tree. They were fast and efficient. They cleaned up all the debris and an hour and a half later they were on their way. I would highly recommend Gabriel Vazquez and Castillo tree service of Hayward.

    I wanted to remove four 50' juniper trees in my backyard along with a couple smaller trees that were on my grass. I called up about five different tree service guys and each came over to give me a quote. Gabriel was literally half the price of the cheapest quote so I gladly decided to give him my business.
    He arrived on time with four assistants. There was some climbing involved because two of the trees were too close to the house. The rest were easier because they were able to guide the initial cutting of the tree down to the tree stump. They had to remove part of my side fence gate in order to fit the tree stump grinder machine. The entire job lasted about three hours. They cleaned up very nicely afterwards and had plenty of mulch for other areas of my backyard. The only downside was that Gabriel accidentally cut through some of my irrigation piping. I can't knock him for that because he specifically asked me about the location of the piping before he started in that particular area. Since I didn't know the answer (it was installed underground way before I owned the house), I told him to just do the best he could. Anyway, I just need to go to Home Depot or Lowe's and buy a few pieces of PVC pipes to fix it, which is not a big deal.
    Overall, I had an excellent experience with Gabriel and it was cool to see how the pros remove trees. I'll gladly do business with him again and would definitely recommend him for any type of tree services you need.
    Last but not least, I found out he does fence building work and sells firewood as well so I got some quotes for that before he left.

  • *****

    This was a great experience! Gabriel was courteous, efficient, responsive and reasonably priced. He called me right away to make an estimate and we hired him on the spot. He did just what we asked and it looks great. He cleaned everything up and was done quickly. We will be calling again for sure. Thank you Gabriel!

  • *****

    They answered the phone, showed up when you they said they would, did quick work of a 70' tall Liquid Amber tree and did a great job cleaning up. Reasonable pricing. I highly recommend them. Here is a time-lapse video of them taking my tree down: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1ASWR6I-J4

    I must admit, I don't need tree services very often at all, so when the time came after 15 years of home ownership, I turned to my parents. They recommended Gabriel who came out immediately, gave me a fair estimate, and promptly returned the next day (5/19/17) to do the work. Never in all my years have I seen a more professional & courteous crew. They arrived on time and went straight to work. Gabriel climbed the tree to a height of nearly 50 feet and delicately laid down enormous branches for his crew to process. They made sure that not a single flower petal was touched in my garden directly under the falling branches. And best of all, they cleaned the yard up better than they found it... like it never even happened! I have since recommend him to all my neighbors and even used him again at another property (7/19/17) that included complete tree removal and stump grinding. He has his own trucks, grinder and wood chipper so there is no running around, renting a truck and the needed tools to get the job done. They showed up at 7:30am and were done by noon - just as promised.

  • *****

    Gabriel came out and gave me decent quote to remove a tree and grind out another stump we had. During the quote he told me that he could start as soon as I was ready. Gave him a call later in the day and he said he and his team would be right over in the morning to get the job done. I will say, they did show up bright and early and a little past mid day they were done. We done run into one problem I don't believe was his fault, and that is the only reason I removed one star. However, Gabriel and his team is great and I don't think I would hesitate to give him a call if I had another job for him to do.

  • *****

    This group headed by Gabriel is an amazing tree care team. They have done a fantastic job cleaning and trimming a 30-ft Japanese maple which other groups did not know how to approach or started damaging. The whole team is courteous and efficient. Highly recommended!!

  • *****

    I called Gabriel after I read the reviews on Nextdoor. He is extremely nice and very professional.

    He even went to his truck and wrote our agreed date down on his calendar.

    He showed up a week later on the agreed date, on time and did an awesome job.

    I will be using him and his crew again in the future.

  • *****

    Last night, severe winds blew a 20-year old ash tree over to where it was leaning on my back fence. I called Gabriel this morning to see if he could come over to discuss my options - I really didn't want to remove the tree if it could be saved. He was at my house an hour later! After looking at the tree, and trying to move it to be straight enough to possibly keep it alive (he couldn't move it even a bit), we agreed it should be taken out.

    We agreed on a very reasonable price and Gabriel said he'd be back in a couple of hours with his crew to do the work. He returned as committed. The tree was removed, the yard was cleaned, and they were gone in 30 minutes... GREAT SERVICE !!

  • *****

    These trees have been irritating my husband since we moved in 2 years ago..Well happy birthday honey, trees are gone. This crew is phenomenally FAST, thorough and very clean. 3 pine trees gone plus they did a little extra freebie (live next to a greenway and city is lacking the upkeep).. all done in one hour! Price was right, we felt no need to have a second opinion like I normally do. Since all trees are now gone from the property I won't have to call them back, but I would recommend them anyone and everyone!

  • *****

    A large tree near our back yard was trimmed by Gabriel and his company last weekend. They did best job with the best price! They came to work on time and finished the job timely. No any sprinkler or property has been damaged. Entire area was cleaned nicely after their work. I would like to give them the best recommendation!

  • *****

    I want to compliment Gabriel and his crew for their professional and effective tree services. Gabriel not only gave me very competitive estimate to remove and trim a tree in two different locations, he also gave me advise on tree care. He knew what to do. He is attention to detail and careful not to break pg&e and phones wires while cutting tree branches. His team voluntarily clean up the dirt I left behind. My place is cleaner than before. Gabriel is polite and very patient to listen to my need. My mom and I are very pleased for the quality work they did. They well deserved Five stars rating. His team is highly recommended. We will continue to do business with him and hope you will be benefitted too. Gabriel and Michelle please keep up the good job!! Hoping the best to you and your business.

  • *****

    Gabriel did a GREAT job,Reasonable price. get quotes but make sure give Gabriel a call you will be very happy that u did. The team cleaned up all the mess and left my place as they found it. Highly recommend Gabriel, he is very smart and experienced at what he does.

  • *****

    Gabriel and crew did a wonderful job thinning out my Cedar tree and raising the canopy. His prices are reasonable and recommend him to anyone in the Tri-City area.

  • *****

    I called to set up a quote for a service and Gabriel called back the same day, he then visited my house the same day, and called back for the estimate. He had a very competitive price and was able to do the work the very next morning! Himself and crew showed up 15 minutes early and before each tree and strub he trimmed, he checked back with me to confirm the right height I wanted. I was very pleased with his business!

    We needed to remove 2 trees and trim 3 large trees. We were going to go with another company until my next door neighbor recommended Castillo's. I called and left a message Gabriel returned my call and said he could come out and give me a quote the next day. His quote came to be soooooo much cheaper than the others and they were able to come out sooner too!! Do not hesitate to call them. My yard was clean by the time they were done (they even removed a pile of leaves for us).

  • *****

    Gabriel and his crew are the best. They came on time and completed a deep pruning of my entire front and back yard. The job included pruning four 30' tall trees, three very large hedges, a large bougainvillea, large plumb tree, large pomegranate tree, our beautiful crape myrtle natchez multi-trunk, half a dozen hydrangeas, a medium sized Japanese maple, removed our dying apple tree, and pruned dozens of other small plants. They spent 8 back-breaking hours making everything look perfect. By the end they had a pile a branches and leaves about 9 feet tall and 25 feet long in front of our house. Gabriel has his own chipper machine and by the end all the mess was cleaned and our property looked spectacular.
    Because it looked so good, 3 of my neighbors stopped by and got him to quote their houses. This guy is the best and he won't leave you feeling icky because he over charged you. His prices are reasonable and fair.
    And one more thing. He knows what he's doing. He gave me a small lesson of how I can prune my fruit trees in the future and even though I was fully paying attention, I could never do as good of a job as he can. He is both an artist and master plant care taker.

  • *****

    Gabriel was extremely punctual and arrived right on the dot for our free estimation. During the day of the actual service, he arrived on time and was extremely thorough and clean. He was invested in not only the aesthetic appearance of our yard but also gave us great advice to ensure our trees stayed healthy. Him and his workers were very skilled and efficient at their job. He was also extremely polite and completed the agreed tasks within the time frame. He was also very prompt with his communication via text and phone.

    I would highly recommend him to anyone else considering trimming their trees!

  • *****

    We highly recommend this company. 3 guys came to our house and cut down 4 ugly trees for our house. They did a superb job. Quick and neat. Very efficient!!!

  • *****

    EXCELLENT QUALITY WORK, PERFORMED SAFELY AND PROFESSIONALLY AT A FAIR PRICE. CASTILLO TREE SERVICE IS THE GO TO COMPANY FOR SMALL TO LARGE JOBS. They recently did a large job for me in Berkeley, CA. They completed a full backyard clean out, which included removing several very large trees, many overgrown shrubs, and pruning back neighbors overhanging trees. The stumps, many in hard to get to places, were ground down to my specifications (below ground level) and large roots were removed to prepare for new landscaping. I highly recommend them. Definitely a 5 Star company.

    Gabriel came to my house to give me a quote on removing a tree stump that was fairly large. he gave me a really cheap quote and then came on the date we picked on time.worked fast and make sure everything was picked up like it was when he got there. very pleased with the service and will be calling him again if I have any further tree needs. highly recommend!

  • *****

    Fantastic service. Very professional. Gabriel came very quickly, gave us a very fair quote and scheduled the service for our convenience. He and his crew knew exactly what to do with our very large tree that hadn't been trimmed in a long time. Not only do they do a great job trimming the tree but they also cleaned everything up so well we couldn't even tell a tree was trimmed. I would definitely use Cabrillo's again and I would highly recommend them to my friends and family.

  • *****

    Once again Gabriel and his crew did a good job building a fence for me at a great price over looking at 3 other estimates I needed a fence done that my tree had destroyed when it fell the same tree Gabriel cut down I am really happy with Gabriel's work he is very professional at his work

  • *****

    Gabriel arrived only 10 min after I called for a free estimate and quoted me a very reasonable price for trimming my 20 foot tree. He and his crew completed the job with care and in record time. As well, they did a great clean up job. They even swept off my roof and cleaned the street and drive.
    This was a big job and I was very pleased with the outcome. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
    I paid by check. I'm not sure if they accept credit cards.

  • *****

    We had a number of plants and trees (one of them a big one) to remove at a property we recently bought. We inquired quotes from a few services and Gabriel was the first one to respond and also the first one to arrive at the scheduled time. Actually, he came in earlier than expected. The rest never responded on time so we gave him a try.

    He and his team arrived at the house on time at around 8am and got to work right away. He told us it might take until the next day to finish up, but when we checked up on him at noon, he said he'll finish sooner than expected. By 3:30pm, he was completely done and the job he did was clean, professional, and without complications. He even helped us remove the For Sale sign on the house. We gladly recommend him to anyone who needs trees and shrubbery removed at an affordable price.

  • *****

    We had a 50 ft. Red Wood Tree removed, including grinding down the stump, plus we had a large tree trimmed.
    Gabriel and his crew did an outstanding job on both trees. They know what they are doing. Very good clean up. Very nice and polite and reasonable priced.
    Great experience!

  • *****

    They a great job for a great price.

  • *****

    I, Michelle, called Gabriel for an estimate for a tree removal , they gave me a good price and did an excellent job . Plus they cleaned away every debris and didn't leave a mess. I suggest you contract Castillo Tree Service .

  • *****

    Castillo Tree Service is an honest, professional company. I recommend this tree service for all your tree needs.
