For a variety of reasons, it may be necessary to have a tree removed. Should removal be the best option, the possibility for damage to the site, adjacent trees, and property always needs to be considered.

Whether your young trees need training, your mature trees require attention, or your hedges can do with some shearing. But, for safety, Homeowners should limit tree pruning to small, lightweight branches, which can be reached from the ground.

Once a tree has been cut down and the wood removed, Consider having any stumps professionally removed as the procedure, if performed improperly, can seriously damage adjacent trees and root systems.

All plants need nutrients and must exchange gases in order to live and thrive and many fertilizer products are available to provide trees with the appropriate nutrients in both organic (naturally occurring) and inorganic (synthetic) formats.

Controlling pests and disease significantly decreases the odds of defoliation and death of plants and trees.

Once the the source of the problem is identified, an integrated approach with a wide range of strategies may be needed to eliminate it.

Cabling and bracing may be used to improve and/or restore the structural integrity of a tree that is worth preserving.

This will involve attaching ropes or chains as fasteners to the weakened limb and the main trunk of the tree.

Planting the right tree or shrub in the right place can make all the difference in the beauty and value of your property, while greatly reducing frustration and maintenance requirements.

At BC Tree Service, we offer our customers assistance in the critical planning and installation stages and we follow up with detailed instructions for routine maintenance during the establishment period. Contact us for your tree and shrub planting needs.

The larger a tree, the more difficult it is to transplant and larger trees should only be moved with appropriate equipment, normally a truck mounted tree spade.

If you are faced with the need to transplant the tree, our trained staff can evaluate the property and provide you with a strategy that ensures a safe transplantation.


Sudden windstorms occur in the Lower Mainland on an intermittent and unpredictable basis and, following any storm, we suggest you perform a visual assessment of your trees and property.

Our knowledgeable experts can perform tree structural analyses in order to appropriately determine current and potential future risks to you and your property.
