Over 40 years in Business

Our experience is invaluable to our customers. Why? Because each day we make numerous decisions when caring for your trees, landscape and property. Making the right decisions based on over four decades of experience means you get the very best tree services possible.


We know the trees in Southern California and especially in the Antelope Valley, Victor Valley, Santa Clarita Valley and Tehachapi Valley areas. We understand how to trim them properly to provide the highest beauty and safety. We also understand the issues that affect our trees intimately and work hard to maximize the benefits.


Experience also has allowed us to continue our education over the years to improve our capabilities and skills. Over the years we have attracted and retained some of the best tree trimming talent around.


Also, over the years, we have also added equipment that allows us to perform you trees services faster, with more expertise and for greater safety.


Jim Lewandowski, President and CEO of Tip Top Arborists, started working for Tip Top at the age of fourteen as a grounds man. After a couple of years, he began trimming trees and learning every aspect of running a professional tree care service. In 1976, he purchased Tip Top Arborists and began overseeing the company’s daily operations.


We hope you see in this tiny snapshot of our company that experience translates to big benefits to you: beauty, safety, savings, speed and professional results.

Licensed and Insured

Hiring a tree service company WITHOUT the appropriate and required license and insurance is a dangerous proposition for the property owner. It can result in expensive lawsuits and your property insurance paying for an injured worker on your property. Without the proper license, you can’t tell who is a reputable and reliable firm and who is not.


We are a well-established arborist company with a very strong reputation. We have personal and property damage insurance as well as workers compensation insurance that we supply on demand to any customer that requests. Additionally, you can look up our Contractors License Number #821770 at the State of California’s website to verify that current insurance and licensing requirements are met. Many homeowners have had to pay out large amounts of money for damages caused by an uninsured individual claiming to be a tree expert. We are truly committed to providing our customers with reliable service and quality tree care.
