Safety, Ethics, and Expertise

Don't leave the care of your living investment to chance

Too often, landscape companies offer tree service without satisfying the legal, ethical, business, and training requirements for proper tree care. There is no substitute for properly-trained arborists.

As certified arborists, we adhere to high industry standards and are committed to:

Public Safety
Our tree workers are trained and certified annually to make sure that they always take proper precautions and handle complicated equipment in the safest manner possible.

It is our belief that open, honest communication will lead to a stronger relationship and more opportunities to serve you in the future. In cases when work you request is either unnecessary or not in the best interest of your trees, we will always let you know.

Doing What is Best for Trees
By applying our vast arboricultural knowledge, we ensure that your trees receive the best care and are never subjected to poor practices. The following is a brief overview of our approach in several important areas of tree work:

  • Pruning - We discourage topping or over-pruning, which can harm or even kill a tree. Instead, we focus on achieving a more natural state of fewer, but stronger branches.
  • Branch Cuts - To promote better healing, we remove branches only along the branch collar. “Flush cuts” are never in our repertoire because cutting beyond branch tissue damages the trunk and makes it susceptible to decay.
  • Cabling - We use high, loose, shock-absorbing cables to fit a tree’s “biological profile” as opposed to low or tight cables, which can only make potential problems worse.
  • Mulching - We avoid over-mulching, which traps moisture and leaves trees susceptible to basal rot, fungus infestation, and oxygen depletion. Rather, we distribute a light layer, protecting the trunk from lawn equipment and preventing grass from competing with roots for water.

"It has been a pleasure working with Brandon Elrod, of Pacific Coast Arborists. Over the past several years I have come to rely on his expertise and integrity and have referred him to our company's largest clients. When I was manager of a high profile master association, he was always willing to go the extra mile to meet my client's needs. In an annexing community, he responded the same day to a request to trim around the developer's marketing signage throughout the association. These experiences and others demonstrated that I can count on him to get the job done and to make sure that it is done the right way. "
