San Diego's Simplest Tree Care

On the coast of the Pacific lies San Diego, a thriving city of over 1.4 million people. San Diego shares a metropolitan area with Tijuana across the US-Mexico border. It's the second-largest international collection of cities in the U.S. after the Detroit-Windsor area. Known as America's finest city, San Diego is famous for its mild climate, beautiful beaches, deep water harbor, and thriving industries.

San Diego is rich in attractions and activities. The city is home to one of America's largest zoos. San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park features over 3,500 animals of more than 650 species, including leopards, anacondas, and arctic foxes. This zoo was one of the pioneers of the open-air model, in which animals have more freedom to roam, and visitors can take safari-style tours of the park.

San Diego's beaches are the most visited in California. With highs in the 60s and 70s year around, 17 miles of coastline, and nine permanent lifeguard stations, this coastal metropolis is a mecca for swimmers, surfers, and sunbathers. Some of the most prominent beaches include Coronado, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Imperial, and La Jolla.

With its deepwater port, San Diego has a long naval history. You can enjoy the USS Midway Museum, an historic aircraft carrier parked at San Diego's Navy Pier. The ship served in the U.S. Navy from 1945-1992, and receives more than a million visitors a year, including over 50,000 students on field trips. Take a self-guided audio tour of the 1,001-foot ship, narrated by many of its former sailors.

San Diego has a rich and complex past. The land was once inhabited by the San Dieguito, La Jolla, and Kumeyaay. The first European explorer to set foot on its shores was Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo who claimed San Diego Bay for the Spanish Empire in 1542. Permanent Spanish settlement began in 1769 with the arrival of settlers from New Spain and the Baja Peninsula.

When Mexico won its independence from Spain in 1821, San Diego became part of its Alta California territory. Americans captured the city after heavy fighting during the Mexican-American war. San Diego became an important hub for military infrastructure and manufacturing during World War II. The population grew rapidly along with the economy. To this day, San Diego has a thriving economy based on defense, tourism, international trade, and manufacturing.

With so much to see and do in San Diego, the last thing you want is to spend your weekends trimming trees and shrubs. LawnStarter makes tree care easier. Simply download the mobile app or open the website, enter your ZIP code, and an army of certified arborists and skilled tree technicians is at your command. With LawnStarter, you can leave your trees to the pros and get back to the beach.
