About Great Scott Tree Service
Great Scott Tree Care started in 1976 with a pick-up truck, a chainsaw, and a vision to provide high-quality tree maintenance at a competitive cost. Our commitment to state-of-the-art equipment, certified professionals, and quickly identifying the future needs and potential problems of our customers has led us to be a leader in commercial, municipal, and university tree care.

At Great Scott we have five core principles that we adhere to everyday:

  • Quality
  • Integrity
  • Safety

With that in mind, we have developed the “Grow It Forward” approach.: before we start any job, we set up both short- and long-term tree care goals with the client. Once we’ve established these goals, a big picture view will guide us, ensuring that the client’s expectations are met.  It is more of an investment up front, but we have learned it pays off for our clients down the road – typically saving them time and money. Our vision throughout the years has always been caring for trees that enhance the beautiful landscapes of southern California communities not just for today but for future generations to come.
