Provding Excellent Tree service snf landscape Care to Residential and Commercial Customers Since 1980

A Family Business for Over 37 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.

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.

We also provide consultation, annual maintenance and tree inventories. We serve many loyal residential properties as well as commercial clients, including homeowner associations and local school districts.

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.

Customer Reviews

  • Outstanding Service

    I have been using Green Leaf Tree services for over six years and I am extremely well pleased. Ted gives an honest and thoughtful appraisal that shows his great knowledge of the trees themselves and what needs to be done to protect them and beatify them. Over the six years his crews have been outstanding. They are courteous, hard working, do the job exactly as promised and safely, and clean up thoroughly. The walk around inspection afterwards ensures that you as a customer are satisfied. I wish every business was as well run as Green Leaf Tree Care.

  • Awesome Service and Results

    I called Green Leaf to come out and trim and remove some trees. I was impressed at how knowledgeable and friendly they were! We hired them on the spot and they came within a week to do the job. The crew that came to do the work was professional, quick and did a wonderful job of cleaning up. They even made suggestions of other things to plant. This is the best company I have dealt with in a long time and I would definitely not hesitate to contact them again!!

  • Arborists Extraordinaire

    Green Leaf Tree Care has trimmed a variety of mature trees for our 18 unit condominium complex for the past four years. I couldn't recommend them more highly. From the receptionist to the owner, the arborists to the men chipping the trimmings, they are true professionals. They have been working to correct the structure of some old olive trees on our property which had been poorly pruned in the past, and show a sincere interest in the appearance and health of the trees. We have found their prices to be competitive. If you are looking for a company that pays attention to detail and you can count on being there when they say they will, I would suggest you give them a try.

  • Great tree service

    We have several large trees on our property and we have used Green Leaf Tree Care for several years when the trees need to be trimmed. We have found them to be professional and reliable and to provide quality service at a reasonable cost. We appreciate being able to call a company we trust who will do a good job each and every time.

  • Great tree service

    We've used other tree services for our huge Ficus and Carrotwood trees, but none have been as quick or turned out as good as Green Leaf Tree Care. What took other companies 2 to 3 days to complete, they did in less than one day due to the number of people at the job.

    Hired for (very tall) palm tree trim. Workers were very courteous, fast, and the clean-up was great !! Would recommend to anyone for their tree service.

  • Did a great job

    Ted came out and spent quite about of time with me discussing our 60 ft. black acacia. It was, sadly, inevitable that it had to be removed. Ted worked with my schedule and sent out his crew the following week. They were professional, considerate, helpful and efficient. They left our yard, driveway & neighbor's driveway extremely clean when they left. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Green Leaf to anyone who needs care for their trees.

  • It could not have been better!

    We had Green Leaf Tree Service take down a 30-foot Magnolia tree that has been in our backyard before my wife moved in 45 year ago. She was concerned about termites. Ted responded to our call right away and gave us an estimate. We accepted and he had his crew here within 2 weeks to take it down and haul it away. They had the entire job, including the grinding out of the stump, completed within 7 hours. His crew was friendly, used great safety methods in bringing it down and were very careful to not to any damage to our home or other property. It was a pleasure to watch such a professional crew make such a difficult job look easy.

  • Highly Recommended!

    Prompt, Efficient and Friendly. We hired Green Leaf to remove a large Liquid Amber and grind down several large stumps in our yard. They did such a great job we hired them for an aggressive trim back on a couple of unruly Elms that were taking over our back yard. We couldn't be happier with the work that was done and would not hesitate to hire Green Leaf for any future tree needs! Ted's customer service is above and beyond most other companies!
