Steven Alvarez and Chip Tamagni formed A&T Arborists and Vegetation Management in October 2003 with the intent to provide a full service arboriculture company specializing in oak tree pruning, pest diagnosis and treatment. We are both certified arborists registered with the International Society of Arboriculture. In addition, we are also California State Pest Control Advisors and Qualified Applicators, a unique combination unparalleled by any of our competitors on the central coast of California. We are both graduates of California Polytechnic State University, and with our staff, we offer you a combined 70 plus years of experience. We offer professional arborist reports and tree protection plans that will enable your project to flow smoothly from city planning departments to representation at city council meetings to final completion and occupancy. We offer formal, written hazard evaluations that enable you to make informed decisions regarding your mature trees near your home or business. Our professional staff is highly trained in safe and effective methods to trim or remove a hazard tree. We do not “lion tail” or “skin up” trees in our trimming procedures.
