Castillo Tree Service is rated 5.0 out of 5 stars, based on 33 reviews!
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.

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.
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.
