Arborist List

SUFA List of Arborists (compiled in 2015)

SUFA (Sunnyvale Urban Forest Advocates) has put together a list of arborists for the City of Sunnyvale, developers and residents. The arborists were suggested by city arborists currently working in the field or retired. The arborists on the list are known for their quality work. One or more are certified at the companies. The arborists were contacted and agreed to be on this list.*
