TREE REMOVAL

Safety is our main priority. That applies to our team members and our clients. When assessing a tree preservation is important to us, however some trees can’t be saved.

We take great pride in our ability to remove trees in a safe efficient manner.

  • That means top of the line equipment designed specifically for the tree care industry.
  • We preform a safety meeting for every site.
  • Proper training and certificates.
  • Extra care when working on your property
  • Secure work zone

TREE PRUNING

Safety is our main priority. That applies to our team members and our clients. When assessing a tree preservation is important to us, however some trees can’t be saved. Whether they are in a poor location, in decline, or have suffered a larger failure, mature trees can become a liability. We take great pride in our ability to remove trees in a safe efficient manner.

  • Structural Pruning – this pruning is generally completed on juvenile trees. We carefully inspect the canopy and remove any branches that will become problematic or cause structural issues. Shaping the tree at a young age will help encourage stronger unions, eliminate over grown branches and reduce the risk of failure.
  • Clearance Pruning – this type of pruning is usually preformed around structures such as your home or your neighbours home, hydro or service wires, or even over your garden or swimming pool. Clearance pruning is a real art form. Our goal is to give you the clearance you require without making it look like the tree has been pruned at all.
  • Crown Cleaning – when we refer to a “crowning cleaning” we are suggesting an overall clean up of the crown. When trees go without maintenance for several years they tend to get a little out of control. We go into the canopy and remove the major deadwood, branches that are rubbing, branches that are diseased, and open up the interior of the tree to create better airflow. Depending on the species this type of pruning is completed on a regular schedule of approx. 3 – 5 years. When this becomes routine we get a history of your tree monitoring any potential issues and take action right away preventing small issues from becoming big issues.

TREE CONSULTATION

During a tree consultation we will first ask if you have any immediate concerns as you are more familiar with your property than we are. Then we will take a walk with you and point out any issues that stand out to us. We will have a discussion about all the trees on your property and devise a plan whether it is simple routine maintenance, removal or specific treatment. We will be honest with you and have realistic expectations. Each tree is different and there are a number of factors that will contribute to their health.

PLANT HEALTH CARE

Plant Health Care (PHC) is the management of plant appearance, structure, and vitality. In an urban environment there are many factors that affect our trees. As arborists it is our job to not only care for trees but we must consider the entire urban ecosystem. Plant Health Care is a holistic approach to maintaining balance, and making decisions that focus on plants and their interactions with the living and non-living elements of the landscape.

Services we provide:

  • Fertilizing
  • Spraying of Natural Pesticides
  • Assessment and Diagnosis
  • Soil Samples and Root Excavation
  • Integrated Pest Management
  • Pruning

CABLING & BRACING

Some trees have structural defects that require removal. Other trees have defects that can be managed. Cabling is the installation of either a steel cable or a dynamic polypropylene rope in to the tree to give support and help to minimize or prevent failure. Bolting is the process of drilling through the tree usually in the truck area and installing large bolts to prevent the tree from splitting apart. Both systems should be monitored on a yearly bases to ensure they are still functional and no other issues have developed. We can give you advice on which system would most benefit your tree. Saving your tree and the property below is our highest priority!
