Coastal Tree Experts
We specialize in: TREE TRIMMING Tree trimming is as much an art as it is a science. Knowing exactly where, when and how to cut is critical to the health and to the appearance of a tree. TREE CARE Good tree care is multifaceted. It involves protecting your tree from disease, watering appropriately, not ignoring its root structure and maintaining balanced branches. Just as we take our cars for periodic oil changes, and our kids to the doctor for check ups, our trees also need regular attention in the form of professional tree care. Tree care involves making sure that your trees are free from disease and protected from harmful insects. Checking that our trees are properly nourished and that they are neither under nor overwatered is another element of tree care. A tree’s root structure is too often ignored yet it is a key indicator of tree health and another part of good tree care. Perhaps the most critical facet of tree care is professional trimming to maintain balance and insure proper growth. BRUSH CLEARANCE Brush is fuel for fire. Strict Fire Department codes regulating brush clearance across Southern California exist to insure public safety and cannot be taken lightly. The idea of brush clearance is to create a defensible perimeter around structures in which firefighters can work to protect buildings from ignition. Brush clearance also helps to prevent fire from spreading from structures to the surrounding wild area. STUMP GRINDING Tree stump grinding is a good alternative to traditional – and more abrasive - stump removal. Although some folks may be tempted to skip this stump step, it is important if one intends to do fresh planting in the area. The stump grinding equipment takes out as much of the stump to which there is access. And a useful byproduct of stump grinding is mulch which can be used in other garden areas. SHAPING AND PRUNING Pruning takes place to remove obstructing, dead or diseased lower branches, decrease a tree’s height, thin the crown of a tree to allow for new growth and improved air circulation, or to simply contour a tree to a particular shape. Improper pruning can cause serious problems and even death to a tree, while proper pruning will insure that a young tree grows strong and that mature trees stay healthy.
We have used Bob Rogers at Coastal Tree for 20 years. We find him to be extremely passionate about his work, and extremely knowledgeable about plant and tree care. We have a huge oak tree in our backyard that began to split 4 or 5 years ago. Bob came in and really saved the tree by putting foam in it and wiring it together....Basically he has saved this enormous tree, which we love and is beautiful. We find Bob to be taking a personal interest in our landscaping in particular.
"We highly recommend Coastal Tree Experts without
"We highly recommend Coastal Tree Experts without reservation. Bob Rogers and his team have been caring for trees on our properties for over 20 years.
Our first property was comprised of over two acres of both very mature trees and newly planted ornamental s. Bob’s knowledge, expertise and skill were always up to the challenge. He continually preserved the health of our older, grander trees through cabling to protect weak limbs, and specialized deep root feedings. Several failing huge ash trees were saved and brought back to health thanks to Bob’s careful attention. Our ornamental trees benefitted as well from expert pruning that always enhanced their beauty.
Currently, we live on a much smaller beach property. Even though our tree care needs are now much less, Coastal Tree is always there when we need them. A huge spruce tree was recently uprooted due to Hurricane Sandy, and Bob had it taken care of within a week during an unusually busy time.
We have always found Coastal Tree to be incredibly responsive and professional while providing what we feel is the most expert tree care in our area."
