Professional Tree Services Serving Palo Alto and the Southern Peninsula

It’s not always easy to stay on top of everything when it comes to the health of the trees and plants on your property. And if you don’t have the years of experience it takes to recognize underlying signs of disease, you could have a future disaster on your hands without knowing it. Fortunately, you’ve found Monster Tree Service of the Coast. We’re a team of highly trained, skilled professionals led by a certified arborist. This relationship, in combination with advanced technology and proven processes, allows us to provide exceptional tree services for the Palo Alto community.

Arborist Services Include:

  • Tree Removal
  • Pruning & Trimming
  • Plant Health Care
  • Emergency Services

Tree Removal

There are many reasons people choose to remove trees from their property. Disease may be a factor, as well as land clearing for construction, or a precariously growing tree. Our teams are led by licensed arborists who will inspect the tree and determine the best method to take the tree(s) away.

Types of tree removal services are:

Crane-Assisted Tree Removal

Sometimes, depending on the layout of the land or any construction that may be in the way, our crew will bring out a crane. We carry licensing and insurance to safely perform crane-assisted tree removal, which takes portions of a tree away to a safe drop zone until the entire tree is gone.

Stump Grinding

Not only are stumps an eyesore, but they’re a hassle to mow around, a tripping hazard, and a harbor for insects and disease. We’ll take care of stumps quickly by grinding them away so you can enjoy your property once more.

Tree and Shrub Pruning & Trimming

If you’re looking to care for a tree or plant rather than remove it, we can establish the best method for quality results. In many cases, some measures can be taken to prevent larger problems down the line. Plus, your vegetation will grow stronger and live longer. We provide treatments such as:

Cabling & Bracing

When a tree branch grows at too severe of an angle, it may have a difficult time supporting itself, which becomes dangerous. Cabling helps to adjust the growth direction, as well as support visible cracks on young trees long enough for roots to anchor.

Hazardous Tree Assessment

If you have concerns about a tree on your property, don’t hesitate to give us a call to check it out. Trees collapsing (whether from a storm, large wind gusts, etc.) is not necessarily the strange accident you might think – many times, there are underlying problems that could have been found in advance.

Corrective Pruning

Pruning will help plants become healthier by removing areas with a disease or infection, which spurs new growth. You’ll also benefit from enhancing the appearance of the plants, although that’s not the specific goal of corrective pruning.


Just as it sounds, deadwooding is the process of carefully removing dead pieces of wood from a tree. This results in enhancing the aesthetic, promoting strong growth, and reducing the dangers of falling limbs.

Crown Density Reduction

When a tree or plant can’t get the number of nutrients it needs, it’s often due to the inability of sunlight to reach the full plant. Our professionals will assess your trees and determine whether crown density reduction or tree thinning, will help the tree grow better. If this is the case, we’ll select the right branches to remove without damaging the tree.

Shrub Trimming

While pruning is for removing diseased branches, trimming is primarily for improving appearances and ridding any stressors from overgrowth.

Plant Health Care Services

Trees bring us so many benefits beyond looking beautiful. They filter pollutants, release oxygen, and provide cooling relief. Plus, they’re great for your mental health – being outdoors surrounded by the relaxing green colors can provide calming and mood-enhancing effects. Our team preserves these vital resources with:


Building a custom fertilization program means your plants receive the best products at the ideal time for maximum nutrient intake.

Insect and Disease Management

There’s a strong chance that the tree you think lost its leaves too early this year actually has a disease or infection. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to believe that something is a little ‘off’ this year with their trees. But an arborist may recognize the signs as an underlying issue to address before the disease spreads, so it’s best to call for a second opinion.

Root Collar Excavation

Also known as the root crown, which is the transitional part of a tree, the root collar is between the roots and the trunk. This collar area becomes covered with debris, branches, and leaves over time, which is normal but causes instability as it goes untreated. Excavating the root crown helps prevent deadwood, infestations, and collapsing of the tree.

Soil and Tissue Testing

Tree growth has three powerful factors that impact success: Water availability, soil aeration, and drainage. Testing and analyzing your soil opens the doors for creating a treatment plan based on specific plant needs for a thriving landscape.

Emergency Services

For the problems you can’t foresee, it’s comforting to have resources available 24/7. That’s why we have a specialized emergency crew available ‘round-the-clock to help with storm damage cleanup, emergency tree removal, and even navigating the tricky insurance claims process. So, whether a tree has fallen into your pool, crashed through your neighbor’s window, or blocked your driveway access, we’re here for you.

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.
