Professional Tree Services – Serving San Mateo County

There’s a lot to understand to maintain the growth of stumps, roots, or trees. And removing any of these components from the property also requires in-depth knowledge to ensure safe results. Fortunately, you’ve found Monster Tree Service of the Coast. We’re your local resource for all things trees – whether that’s emergency services because a storm blew branches through your window, you need a plot of land cleared, or your trees aren’t doing well and you need help nursing them back to health. No project is too big or too small for our team.

Arborist Services

As highly trained, certified tree care professionals, we know a thing or two about tree services. And an arborist leads each team of service experts. How can we help make your life easier?

Tree Removal

Sure, you might consider taking a chainsaw to that dead tree in your backyard. But before you do, are you aware of the potential outcomes? It’s much more than simply sawing a log and calling it a day. Some of the dangers that you could face with DIY tree removal include:

  • Chainsaw slipping and injuring you or someone else nearby.
  • Falling if you require a ladder or machinery to assist in the removal.
  • Coming into contact with electrical wires by accident.
  • Tumbling branches or trunks damaging your property or your neighbor's.

Rather than risking potentially disastrous situations, our team handles removal for you with:

  • Crane-Assisted Tree Removal: Instead of felling the tree, we will bring a crane to safely lift the tree from the property piece by piece, dropping cuts in a designated zone.
  • Stump Grinding: Regain your space with stump grinding that removes the potentially hazardous wood, protects against pests, and allows you to reuse the resulting wood chips as mulch.

Tree & Shrub Pruning & Trimming

Not only does routine trimming help remove potential injury or liability for an accident, but it also keeps vegetation in good condition. Depending on your situation, our pruning and trimming can involve:

  • Cabling & Bracing: This process, also known as Supplemental Support, takes the pressure off any weak points and incorporates rods to help cracks hold strong.
  • Hazardous Tree Assessment: It’s not always easy to spot disease, and to know what the right steps are to care for the tree. That’s where we come in.
  • Corrective Pruning: Randomly trimming branches doesn’t help vegetation, but carefully choosing which branches to prune can remove portions that would eventually kill the tree.
  • Deadwooding: Similar to corrective pruning, deadwooding focuses specifically on removing branches that are dead or dying and could prove dangerous.
  • Crown Density Reduction: Reducing the density of the tree’s crown offers better access to the nutrients that trees need.
  • Shrub Trimming: Even though shrubbery can be tricky to trim due to needing the correct timeframe and process for the various types out there, we understand the nuances to help.

Plant Health Care Services

Crucial components of our ecosystem, trees and shrubs purify the air, along with offering privacy and shade. But when plants begin to suffer, so do the benefits you normally enjoy. We’ll keep your vegetation growing strong with:

  • Fertilization
  • Insect and Disease Management
  • Root Collar Excavation
  • Soil and Tissue Testing

Emergency Services

Though you can plan for many tree services, sometimes accidents happen outside of anyone’s control. Our team is on standby 24/7 to quickly assist with emergency services such as:

  • Emergency Tree Removal
  • Storm Damage Cleanup
  • Insurance Claims

Don’t hesitate to dial (650) 733-2090, even if it’s the middle of the night on a holiday. We will always be available to help because we know how stressful it can be to navigate emergencies on your own. With us, you’re never alone.

Our History

In 2008, Monster Tree Service began as a small tree service company providing arboricultural care to Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey. Our founder was committed to promoting the growth of healthy trees and giving homeowners unparalleled service while taking care of their yards and homes. As a result, when other tree service businesses struggled to find jobs, our company kept working through every season, growing and expanding like the trees we care for.

Now we’ve become the nation’s first tree care franchise for a simple reason: Our approach works. Customers love working with us because we’re honest. When we tell customers they do or don’t need a particular service, they know we mean it. Because we care about trees, we’ll always fight for ways to rehabilitate your tree rather than remove it. When we do recommend removal, it’s because we know it’s the only thing that’s safe for your home and family.
