Do I have to be home on the day of the scheduled work?

No. We can complete tree work without you having to be present. Although not entirely necessary, we encourage homeowners to be present during the estimate so we can have a face-to-face conversation about the tree or trees in question.

Do you have insurance?

Yes, we are a fully insured and licensed tree service provider with five-million-dollar liability insurance and WSIB coverage for all of our employees.

Can you prune my neighbour’s tree?

No. Clients can only solicit our services for trees on property they own. If a tree is on the border of two properties, both landowners must indicate approval for tree work. If a tree is near your property, but in fact is on municipally-owned land, the municipality must provide approval. In all cases appropriate permits will be required.


Are permits required to prune or remove trees?

Many municipalities require permits to prune of remove trees. Call us and we will assist you through the process in your community.
