In the early 1980's Derek Long worked for a reputable landscape company, then in 1986 he branched out on his own and began doing tree work and then became a State Licensed Contractor in 1991, and when he incorporated in 2011 he became President and CEO of The Branch. Derek has been doing tree work in the San Diego area for over 30 years and is a Certified Arborist and a Certified Tree Worker, and he looks forward to being in the tree service industry for many years to come.

Derek and Trevor

Beginning at an early age, Trevor Long was raking leaves and dragging branches for his dad, and later on he began climbing trees and learning the trade. His passion for tree work grew and Trevor is now a Certified Arborist and an experienced Certified Tree Worker. He has also earned a bachelor's degree (Cal State University San Marcos) and is Vice-President of The Branch.

Derek and Trevor are a father and son team. It is their goal to continue providing excellent tree service within their community while working together as a team. For those of you who are our repeat customers, we thank you, and for those of you who are considering hiring us for the first time, give us a try!
