Our Story

Founded in Summerland in 2007 by Chris and Deviena Newton, Branch Out Tree Care quickly became a local success thanks to Chris’ passion for trees, care of client properties, and skilled, professional crew members.

Starting the business with just a pickup truck and basic tree equipment, Chris and Deviena worked together through local neighborhoods knocking on doors and acquiring loyal clients one by one. These loyal clients in turn referred Branch Out Tree Care’s service to others and the business steadily developed into the modern, safe, and professional crew fielded locally every day.

We, and our family, are proud to offer our services to our local community and are thankful for our growth and success in the industry.

We service the Carpinteria, Summerland, Montecito, Santa Barbara, Goleta, Buellton, Solvang, Lompoc and coming soon Santa Maria and Nipomo area.

Taking care of the customers is job number one at Branch Out Tree Care. Co-owner Deviena Newton makes sure the crew shows up at your job on time and ready to work. One of the most important things Deviena does is to make sure the crew is up-to-date on all procedures and required safety measures. She’s always available to talk to set your appointment.
