Pacific Coast Companies is guided by the passion and knowledge of Brandon Elrod. As a young boy, Brandon spent every moment possible climbing trees in his backyard, and that love for trees and nature has only continued to grow over the years.
Brandon was a Landscape Architecture student for several years at Cal Poly Pomona before ultimately graduating with a degree in Plant and Soil Science. He spent a decade working for a nationwide commercial landscape company before founding Pacific Coast in 2004.
Brandon’s passion for nature has led him to shape Pacific Coast into a model company for environmental sustainability. Our landscape division uses battery operated equipment and non-toxic weed control. Our janitorial team uses only plant-based cleaning products. And our arborist company leads the industry in environmentally-friendly processes that extend tree life, improve soil heath, and maximize the amount of carbon conversion.
Brandon has served on the Rancho Santiago College advisory committee, as a mentor to rural community leaders in Kenya, and currently as the chairman of the International Society of Arboriculture’s Western Chapter Spanish Committee. He has written numerous books and is a public speaker. His doctoral dissertation examines the environmental impact of the Church over the past two millennia.
