When considering hiring someone to care for your trees, we strongly
recommend hiring an ISA Certified Arborist. Being certified
indicates that the arborist has a solid knowledge of tree care and
is committed to staying current in the profession.
Deciduous trees should be pruned every 3-4 years. We use proper
pruning cuts so that the tree can seal-over properly. In order to
prune a tree properly it often requires climbing; we use arborist
ropes and saddles, and all safety precautions, in order to
thoroughly prune the tree.
High Reach Equipment

safe/efficient services for our clients.
Ornamental Tree, Hedge and Shrub Shaping -
We do not indiscriminately top trees. We do shape crabapples, poplar
and spruce when required using proper pruning cuts. This is often a
great alternative to removal.
If you’ve watched your birch tree wither away, if you have young
trees and shrubs that need a boost, or if you are having trouble
with the colour of your old spruce, we have the solution. We
strongly recommend our custom fertilizer mix applied twice per year
to keep your trees healthy, disease resistant and in good colour. We
challenge you to try out our fertilizing services…we’re certain
you’ll see a difference (and your trees will feel the difference)!
Removals are sometimes necessary. We might use rigging techniques to
bring down the tree piece by piece, or we will just pull the tree
over if there is room and it’s safe to do so. When considering
removing a large tree, safety is critical. We ensure the safety of
human and physical assets in the approach we use for removals. We
haul the wood away or leave it for firewood (at the customer’s
Dutch Elm Disease Prevention -
When an elm has to be removed, this can be done at any time, all
branches and wood have to go to the City landfill and the stump
needs to be ground below grade. Elm trees need to be pruned at least
every 3-4 years, this is only done when the trees are dormant from
October 1st to April 1st. The branches and
pruning debris need to be sent to the landfill.
That tree that is split in two in may not need to be removed! If
possible, we will perform tree surgery and keep the tree around for
