ISA Certified Arborist in the San Diego Area

About us

Coastal Tree Care began with the vision of making a difference in the green industry. After working with other contractors and witnessing unsafe practices by unqualified individuals, Joseph, our founder, wanted to bring about beautiful change within the tree care industry and our community.

In 2012, Coastal Tree Care started with just two employees, one truck and insurmountable passion. Seven years later, that passion is still what drives the entire team to deliver an exceptional customer experience. From first contact, to the initial consultation, and finally the end result, Coastal Tree Care brings a warm and friendly attitude with excellent customer service each step of the way.

We take a holistic approach to tree care with a conscious awareness of our environment in order to provide client focused solutions to manage your urban forest. We want you to love your trees. We work with you to combine your vision and needs with our passion and expertise to create beautiful and healthy trees that you can enjoy for years to come!
