“We treat the cause, not the symptom.”

Urban Trees Get No Respect!

“Urban trees have to put up with many stresses in the concrete jungle of our busy cities. While they are planted to provide beauty, shade, cooling effects, trees in the urban environment get no respect.”

Here are just some of the adverse growing conditions :

  • Compacted soil (construction and foot traffic)
  • Limited root area (raised beds and small boulevards)
  • Radiant heat (pavement, sidewalk, buildings)
  • Wind tunnel effect between buildings
  • Damage to trunks from mower and lawn maintenance equipment
  • People embedding foreign objects in the trunks – nails, clothes lines, etc.
  • Construction – often roots are severed during excavation
  • Reduced nutrients from an unnatural environment

Maple Hill Tree Services has 30 years of experience in the maintenance of trees on residential, commercial properties and tree maintenance for town and municipalities.

Our goal is to partner with our clients in Treating the Cause, not the Symptom.

Please scroll through our list of services. And if you have any questions, please call our office. One of our Certified Arborists would be happy to talk to you.

We can reverse Global Warming – One Tree at a Time!

The presence of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has been detected by the Ministry of Natural Resources staff within the City of Toronto, Brampton, Mississauga and Oakville.

The initial discovery has been located in the vicinity of Sheppard Avenue East and Highway 404.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has placed a restriction on the movement of all Ash tree wood and Ash tree material within the City of Toronto. No movement of Ash tree material is permitted either in or out of the city limits.

The Emerald Ash Borer attacks stressed trees as well as healthy trees.

The beetle arrived in North America from Asia and was first detected in 2002 in Detroit, Michigan and in Windsor, Ontario. It has also been detected in Ohio and Indiana. The beetle was present in these areas for a number of years before being discovered.

It is a very destructive Ash tree pest and has caused the death of millions of Ash trees. The earliest possible detection of this insect is essential to help reduce its spread and damage.

We are currently working with the Canadian Food and Inspection Agency and a leading forest research company to provide a proactive solution to this pest.
