I have over 15 years of experience in the tree business - first starting out as a ground man with a well known company here in San Diego. I soon found that I liked trimming trees the best so I've taken what I've learned and started Charles Tree Service.
I am a native of San Diego, and I have been very fortunate and glad to have grown up here. I have always known that I could be a successful person in life, but I had no idea that I would one day have my own tree business... This blessing has given me the opportunity to enjoy my work in life. I take pride in all the work I do and every tree I work with.
Sincerely - Robert Charles Stansil
A few trees in the canyon below my house died from a beetle infestation and, with this heat, turned into a fire hazard. I trust in the Kudzu community so, when I saw that Charles Tree Service had cleaned up in the satisfied department, I gave him a call. He gave me a bid, came out THE NEXT DAY with a hardworking crew, and did his job - a prompt, courteous, very reasonably priced, terrific job. I am delighted and only wish that every service profession had its own Charles.

Charles was recommended to me by a friend so I called. He quickly responded and we made a same day appointment to survey and receive a free estimate. I liked what I heard and he started on the job immediately. His crew was knowledgeable and and hard working. Everything from setup to take down went smoothly. They cleaned up, packed up and you couldn't tell they were there. Except that the tree and stump were gone that is. Great team. Highly recommended.Thanks guys for a job well done!

I called and Charles came over that evening to give me an estimate. He worked us into his schedule the next day and the dead pepper tree is gone. The crew left it cleaner than they found it. Very professional, quick, clean, and fairly priced, I highly recommend this company. I will use them again.

My father who manages an HOA, found this gentleman. The price was good, and the service was great. We were very impressed with the work done, and great work ethic. I've been working with many contractors lately, and I wish they all knew there business as well as Charles.

I called Charles about removing some large shrubs and grinding down stumps. He arrived the day I called to give me an estimate and completed the job in its entirety the next day. Everything was done to my satisfaction when I arrived home. I would highly recommend him.

I found Charles' Tree Service here on Kudzu and they had so many good reviews I figured I'd give them a call. Charles came out to bid the job the same day. We agreed upon a price and he showed me the legal credentials I required (lic. insur., etc.). The next day he and his crew were there taking down my 30 foot pepper tree, stump and all. They were fast and friendly throughout the 3 or 4 hour process. The massive tree is gone and the extensive clean up was done very well. Watching Bobby climb that tree and use the chainsaw, often with only 1 hand, as though he's been using one since he was 8-yrs old (he has) was very impressive. While on site, Charles and I shared a mutual love for our Lord, Jesus Christ which made the experience all the more enjoyable. I highly recommend Charles Tree Service.

I had Charles perform trimming on a 65 foot tall Mexican Fan Palm tree in my front yard that was extremely overgrown. There were dead fronds from about 25 feet off the ground to around 55 feet - the palm had literally looked like a rat's nest. After closed bidding the job with a half a dozen other tree service businesses I awarded the job to Charles. What's noticeable immediately is Charles' professionalism and courtesy. He is also very pro-active which was a big change from all of the other bidders that I had contacted. The service was performed the following day of the quote and he delivered on time and performed the work to the degree of quality as promised. Charles' service is fair and honest and he is passionate about his work. For anyone looking for tree service from a down to earth and all around fair value Charles is the man for the job. There's more good karma that will be generated from the way that he runs his business and treats his customers and more business will follow because he's trust worthy. Thanks for the awesome service Charles. God Bless!

We had a huge, well established China Berry tree in the backyard that dropped trash year-round. It was in a difficult place and Charles cleanly removed it as well as a couple of other old stumps (also in hard to reach places). I have many delicate and irreplaceable roses in my yard and everything was unscathed and in place when they left. The yard and patio were well cleaned up. I KNOW that messy China Berry won't be back! Will highly recommend to everyone I encounter looking for a "great tree guy". Fast, thorough and terrific job!

I'm fussy about everything. This tree team was amazing. Prompt, polite, thorough, with excellent overall performance. I'd recommend Charles Tree Service to my Mom, who is even fussier.

I contacted Charles after reading his reviews and was not disappointed. He responded promptly and gave me a competitive quote and was able to do the work the next day. He and his crew removed a large palm tree for me and finished the job quickly and left my backyard and driveway clean. I would definitely use his services again.

Charles did excellent work removing 5 eucalyptus trees for us. He and his crew prevented any of the wood from hitting a little metal shed which was very close to the trees. We are grateful to him for a job well done.

Charles and his crew were prompt and took care of the trees in record time. The clean-up was super and exceeded my expectations. I will definitely call them again next year!
