You’re never far from a park or stretch of nature wherever you go in San Carlos. The city nurtures its green spaces with ongoing park improvements and planting initiatives, such as the biodiversity-enriching Native Habitat Garden. 


The California bay laurel is a popular tree for nests, making it a birdwatcher’s dream. This evergreen is relatively tough, but it’s at risk of developing heart rot, a fungal disease that causes decay in the core and branches. We can treat infected California bay laurels or recommend a program to get sickly or stressed trees healthy so they’re less susceptible to diseases.


The California buckeye is exclusive to the Golden State. Its fragrant white blooms attract a kaleidoscope of butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden. The California buckeye is at risk of diseases like thrip, phytophthora ramorum sudden oak death, and powdery mildew.​ We can diagnose and treat (or remove) diseased trees. We can also help you plan a native garden to complement your land conditions and attract the wildlife and insects you want in your yard.
