4.5 Craig M. San Diego, CA

Great job.

5.0 Alice M. Lakeside, CA

Joseph provided us with a quote and scheduled the service. When he arrived he confirmed exactly how much of the palm tree was to be removed and performed the work safely and to our complete satisfaction. And he provided us with his license and insurance-a true professional. We would hire him again.

5.0 Andrew P. San Diego, CA

Quick and easy process. Joseph showed up, provided an estimate, scheduled the service date with me and performed an excellent trim of my palm trees. Additionally, they cleaned up afterwards. Professional job at a reasonable price.

5.0 Damian Q. San Diego, CA

Did a great job. He knew everything about trees. Was really safe while performing his job.

5.0 Marianne B. San Diego, CA

I had Joe remove one large liquid amber tree and trim another one. He did an excellent job.

5.0 Nancy B. San Diego, CA

He did a wonderful job trimming palms and bird of paradise plants. Nice work and very good price.

5.0 Jeff M. San Diego, CA

Joseph Descans and his crew did a fantastic job cutting down a troublesome Eucalyptus tree on my back slope, cutting down some small palm trees and trimming wisteria on an arbor along with trimming an overgrown ficus. I was very impressed with how friendly, professional, and hard-working they were. They cleaned up all the cuttings and trimmings and left my back yard looking great. I can highly recommend Joseph Descans Tree Service.

4.0 Glen B. San Diego, CA

Just needed to bring a tarp to collect fallen palms

5.0 Walt R. La Mesa, CA

Honest,hard worker.

5.0 Michael M. San Diego, CA

Great hard working guy. Knows his trees too. Hired him to trim a large row of Euginia's and he found an ash tree in the mix. He removed it and didn't even try to charge extra.

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
