El Sobrante Tree Services

A unique and unincorporated area today known as El Sobrante.

When the California and Nevada Railroad built a line into the area in 1887 for the purpose of transporting lumber cut from the hills, the area was dubbed “Oak Grove” by industrial concerns. ┬áThe name Sobrante was thereafter adopted, with the Spanish definite article “El” added in 1941, to coincide with the establishment of the first post office.

Rancho El Sobrante had been reduced to a series of smaller ranches by the early twentieth century, with most of them following a dirt road along San Pablo Creek. Many of these ranches were partitioned further. El Sobrante evolved from a rural to a semi-rural town as roads were paved and residences were built. El Sobrante is filled with a number of hidden gems, including one open and yet hard to find area dedicated to the rare Alameda Manzanita.
