A Family Business for Over 35 Years

Ted and Christine Huffman began Green Leaf as a sole proprietorship in 1980 while living in the Midwest. Upon returning to Southern California in 1982, they became a leading tree and landscape service to the Redlands/Inland Area for 16 years. In 1998, they brought the company to San Diego and “put down roots.” Green Leaf Tree Care currently serves San Diego and surrounding areas.

Quality Tree Care and Customer Service

Constant communication is a vital aspect in the professionalism at Green Leaf. When you call us, we call back. We provide good-natured, honest and extensive evaluation of trees and property, along with verbal and written communications, estimates, and emails. These are foundational to our customer service policy. Customer satisfaction is always our goal.

Continuing Safety Training and Education: High Priority

Green Leaf Tree Care is dedicated to provide San Diego with quality workmanship in both the tree service industry and in landscape maintenance. With quality at the core of our business style, we keep education in the green industry at the forefront for our crew members as well as for our clients. Cutting-edge research in standards for tree health and proper pruning is essential to our business philosophy, so that expectations and final results are the same for both worker and client. Updated safety and equipment training keeps our crews sharp while on any job.

Customer needs have also driven us into new areas of diversification. We have initiated a Weed Abatement & Fire Clearance division to service both commercial property and private residential. We now offer Monthly Landscape Maintenance services, and we have also added Plant Health Care & Consultation to our list, to provide specialized care to our valued customers.
