    Reliable Arborist Services in Ottawa

    Arborists do much more than removing old trees. A certified arborist is highly trained in caring for and evaluating trees, as well as a number of other services. Our arborists can:

    • CABLE & BRACE TREES

    • PLANT & MOVE TREES

    • FERTILIZE ROOTS

    • PREPARE REPORTS & OBTAIN PERMITS

    Whether they are on a residential or business land, thriving and healthy trees make properties look great and increase their value. Make sure you are

    Ottawa Arborist Reports

    Part of what makes the city of Ottawa such a comfortable and green city are the regulations in place to protect trees. The Tree Protection By-law (No. 2020-340) governs when trees can be removed, and which measures must be taken to preserve trees during construction projects. If you are looking to remove a tree or start a construction project in Ottawa, you will likely need a professional arborist to provide one or all of the following reports:

    • ARBORIST REPORTS/DISTINCTIVE TREE PERMITS

      If you are looking to remove a tree from your Ottawa property, in most cases you will need an arborist report and a distinctive tree permit

    • TREE DISCLOSURE/INFILL CONSERVATION REPORTS

      Many building permits in the Ottawa area require tree disclosure reports as part of the application.

    • HAZARD EVALUATION REPORTS

      While trees add value to your home or business, sometimes they can represent hazards that only a certified arborist can spot.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    See what our clients have been asking us about arborist services in Ottawa.

    Hiring a certified arborist to handle all of your tree maintenance is the best way to ensure the optimal health of the tree. This will mean the tree will look its best on your property rather than an eyesore. This will help to increase your property value instead of lowering it.

    The first thing you should do is contact us and have us come and assess the tree. We will write an arborist report based on our findings and recommend services to treat and preserve the tree, or remove it if treatment is impossible.

    Under the new Tree Protection By-law in Ottawa which came into effect January 1, 2021, you will need a permit that includes an arborist report that recommends tree removal in order to have a tree removed. There are exceptions including:

    • Ash trees that are infested with the Emerald Ash Borer
    • Dead and/or hazardous trees which present an immediate threat to public health and safety.

    We can help with assessing a tree to see if removal is the right course of action, and whether or not a permit is needed to remove it.

    Yes, we can! In fact, winter is a great time to prune a tree because without leaves on the tree, the full structure is visible and easier to access. The cold weather also reduces the chance of the tree contracting a disease because it is in a dormant state.

    We wouldn’t recommend it. Topping a tree is very harmful to it. Topping removes anywhere from 50% to 100% of it’s leaf bearing branches. This forces the tree into a state of crisis where it will try and force out new buds to grow leaves for it to photosynthesize. This process requires a large amount of energy and places great stress on the tree. If it doesn’t have enough energy reserves to finish this process, it will become severely weakened, be more vulnerable to pests and diseases, and may die.

    We have other ways of making a tree appear smaller with selective pruning, canopy thinning and more which are much safer ways to make a tree appear less prominent.
