I have been a Certified Arborist since 1991 and actively involved with the Tree Care Industry for over 42 years. I am a Board Certified Master Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture and a Registered Consulting Arborist with the American Society of Consulting Arborist. In 2015 I retired as the assistant Division Head in the Urban Forestry Division for the City of Los Angeles which manages one of the largest street tree populations in the nation. Prior to coming to the City of Los Angeles I was the owner / operator of Neighborhood Tree Service and shortly thereafter I started consulting on a part time basis. In 1999 I started consulting on a regular basis and that’s when we changed our name to Neighborhood Consulting Arborist. Then, due to the increase in Court Case work we started our current company Tree Case Management in 2010.

Tree Case ManagementTree Case Management

Trees in our developed environment present a challenge, requiring careful planning and vigilant maintenance.
Tree Case Management (TCM) is dedicated to the enhancement of your community and the protection of the environment. TCM is the preeminent authority on matters related to root and infrastructure damage, tree preservation and retention, and tree & plant health care, ensuring through our expertise and objectivity the safety, preservation, functionality and beauty of your natural surroundings. The shared public trust of governments, businesses and homeowners is to ensure that tree plantings grow, thrive and remain safe. When a problem occurs, if a tree causes damage or becomes a public safety hazard, a source for advice and mediation is often needed. This is the role of TCM to bring a comprehensive, objective viewpoint to the diagnosis, appraisal and evaluation of arboricultural issues.
