Finding a good tree care serviceThey absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas.[...] they look good.To keep your trees healthy or to get rid of dying ones, you may want the benefit of professional advice, skill and labor.To help you find it, nonprofit consumer group Bay Area Consumers’ Checkbook and Checkbook.org has surveyed its members and Consumer Reports subscribers about their experiences with area tree care services.For the next month, Checkbook is offering free access to its ratings of tree care services to Chronicle readers: www.checkbook.org/chronicle/tree-care.Other reasons for tree work include eliminating the risk to your house, or to electrical or other utility wires from rubbing limbs or precarious overhanging limbs; letting light and breezes more readily reach your house, garden or lawn; and protecting foundations and drainage systems from invading roots.[...] sometimes it’s difficult to diagnose and treat trees.Checkbook’s evaluation of tree care services found big company-to-company differences in the quality of advice and work performed.[...] the news is not all good.Some companies received favorable ratings from only 60 percent or fewer of their surveyed customers.Common customer complaints included charging more than promised, producing bad results and even property damage caused by careless or untrained workers.Typically, you don’t have to be home when bidders are looking at the job — but do include a thorough description of the work in a written contract that specifies who cleans up afterward, hauls away debris and wood, and removes the stump.Check whether a company’s liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance are in effect.If you need expert advice and help caring for your trees, rather than simply removing goners, look for certification by the American Society of Consulting Arborists (www.asca-consultants.org) or the International Society of Arboriculture (www.isa-arbor.com).Bay Area Consumers’ Checkbook magazine and Checkbook.org is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help consumers get the best service and lowest prices.

- This Furniture Gives New Life To Drought-Killed, Beetle-Infested California Pines
By Eillie Anzilotti - Tuesday Aug 29, 2017
The cofounders of SapphirePine want to create value for wood that most furniture makers consider too damaged to use.
From 2010 through last year, a severe drought gripped California. Aquifers dried up, agriculture suffered, and, according to the U.S. Forest Service, over 100 million trees shriveled and died across 7.7 million acres of the state’s forests. Without a consistent supply of moisture, California’s majestic pine trees began to dry up from the inside out. Parched trees are especially vulnerable to invasion from mountain beetles, which burrow into the bark, lay eggs, and eventually eat their way through the bark, blocking the circulation of water and nutrients around the tree.
