Palm Tree Care and Maintenance

It’s important to know how to care for palm trees in Southern California. Unlike typical trees, palm roots do not grow deep into the soil as the palm tree grows. If a terminal bud on the trunk is injured, this may result in the death of the palm tree. Although the majority of palms grown in containers, others can flurish in front or back yards. The secret to healthy and beautiful palm trees lies in regularly maintaining their foliage to keep them green and healthy.

We specialize in many Palm tree varieties – cabbage palm, royal balm, Chinese fan palm, sabal palm, fishtail palm, pindo palm, queen palm, windmill palm, and Carpentaria palm.  Contact us to beautify your palm trees today!

Jenna Dotts – GoSite Tree Service Review

“Doug’s service was over the top! Even at night time during after hours, he responded to my call immediately and offered his help. He was prompt, descriptive, and responsive. He was very skilled at climbing the tree quickly and safely. He helped me with exactly what I needed when I couldn’t find anyone else to help. I definitely recommend him to any private residence or company looking for contract work. Thank you again Doug!”

Aimee Sell – GoSite Tree Service Review

“We called for a quote to do some stump grinding for trees we took out ourselves and to trim up some existing trees. Douglas came out the next day and got a quote to us immediately. He was friendly, knowledgeable, offered great advise and was incredibly reasonable with cost. He was able to squeeze our job in that same week and got everything done quickly and beautifully. Our yard looks incredible! We will definitely use him again and would recommend him and his crew to anyone looking for tree services.”

Kathleen Pojunas – GoSite Tree Care Review

“Service was great from the estimate process to follow up after completion. Cicileo came when they said they would, worked like crazy all day long, did what they said they would do, and communicated regularly throughout a major job removing 4 very large cypress trees. And the estimate for the job was very reasonable when compared to others. Will definitely use in the future.”

Paul Appache – GoSite Tree Service Review

“Awesome service!! Doug took care of all the details, cleaned up our palm tree. It looks AMAZING NOW!! I can’t recommend him enough. I have used 3 other tree services in town and won’t go back. Fair prices, prompt service and great guys to work with.”

Qin Yang – GoSite Tree Service Review

“Doug and the team lifted and thinned a Oak tree for us. The job is perfectly done and we are very happy about not just the outcome, but also the whole experience. Doug is extremely easy to work with. Fast response, clearly stated the scope of the work to make sure no surprise during the work and the quote is very competitive. The crew members are professional and hard working. Shows up on time, get the job done in a timely fashion and with all the details taken care of. Highly recommended!”

John Bair – GoSite Tree Service Review

“Doug and his crew had a real job on their hands removing 8, 100 foot eucalyptus trees. 3 of these trees were very close to a 1,000 gallon propane tank and 5 were growing just feet away from one of our Ranch houses. I was amazed at how Doug and his crew removed all of these trees with no problem….IN THE RAIN ! Doug gets a gold star rating as far as I’m concerned! Good Job Doug! We will definitely be calling you again for any tree work we need on this 160 ranch!”

"The Cicileo tree service was good quality. The team arrived on time and did one large tree and 5 other smaller trees and bushes. They were polite and very clean and the price was very competitive with other bids I received. I would use them again"

Why You Should Do Your Own Landscaping?

If you have ever tried to do a landscaping project before, you know from first hand experience that it isn’t the simplest task to do. Although anyone can landscape, it takes preparation and knowledge to do it successfully. The advice and tips below will help you stay prepared and informed for your next landscaping project.

To help pay for your project, you should divide it into different stages. You will only have to pay for one stage at a time. If landscaping is a hobby for you, taking your time is important since creating the landscape is often more fun than maintaining it on a regular basis.

Do not plant too much of the same plant in your garden unless it is one that can withstand all type of weather conditions. If you place the same kind of plants throughout your garden and they die during an off season you will be left with a bare yard.

Whenever you are trying to determine what types of plants to include in your landscaping project, you should always consider things like sunlight, wind direction and strength, and soil alkalinity. These factors will help narrow down your options so that you can choose plants that will thrive in your landscape.

Be mindful of the impact that your landscaping can have on your house. Any disregard for this can result in plants that affect piping underground, or even block the visibility of traffic near your home. It takes only seconds online to research the average growth size, or how the roots behave for your new plants and trees.

It can be very difficult to guess and plan how much mulch, sand, rock, etc. you might need in order to successfully finish your whole project. In part, you should make sure you do everything in phases. As far as planning the amounts of each of these materials, do your math and pay attention to specifications.

Consider the amount of sunlight that hits different areas on your property before deciding what to plant there. Some plants need full sunlight while others thrive in shade. If you plant the incorrect varieties in the wrong areas, you are setting yourself up for failure. Talk to a professional at your local nursery to determine which plants will do best in different lighting conditions.

Water is a great element to add to any design. Adding a water pump with a small fountain or waterfall is simple. If you could afford it, there’s a lot of professionals who could install these things for a cheap cost. Incorporating water features is a great way to establish a focal point.

Take a bit of time to research the right types of plants to use in your landscaping design. You can go to your local nursery or big-box home-improvement store and ask them questions about the plants they sell. Always keep in mind the growing requirements in your own yard when considering which plants to use.

Don’t be scared off by cheap prices! While splurging can sometimes be worthwhile, at other times, the cheapest materials are just as good as the pricey ones. Before paying extra, consider what you’ll be getting for your money, and if it’s worth the extra cost. It doesn’t always take a lot of money to get quality goods.

Carefully determine the quantities of material you will need. It can be very easy to under or overestimate how much of any given material you will need to get the job done. Before you get started, check you math. Get a second pair of eyes or even a professional to take a look at your materials list.

Landscape design software is an excellent tool for anyone who needs visual aids to get a true idea of what works best. These programs allow you to enter measurements and maps that reflect your working space. This allows you to plan the boundaries of flowerbeds, visualize spacing and choose the optimal layout for your project.
