Tree Removal

When the time comes to remove your tree, make sure you hire the experts. We have the extensive skill and specialized equipment to make the removal of your tree a no mess, no fuss process.

Safe & Efficient – Always

Despite the fact that we care deeply about trees and are aware of the environmental, social and economic benefits that they provide, we accept the fact the sometimes they need to be removed for reasons beyond our control. Tree removal is potentially dangerous and should be carried out by professional arborists. Here at Diamond Tree Care we have the equipment and skills to safely remove any tree. We have 2 crane trucks that we can utilize to make removal of even the most hazardous or awkwardly located trees safe and efficient.

Our estimate would typically include complete cleanup of all debris however some clients chose to keep wood for burning or other uses. We can educate you on the tree protection bylaws that may be in place in your municipality and help you with tree removal permit applications and arborist reports.

Frequently Asked Questions

Possibly. Depending on which municipality you live in you may need to apply for a permit to remove a private tree. Some municipalities require an arborist report to accompany the application, some tree removals require planting of replacement trees. In most instances no application fee or replanting is required for dead trees.

Here at Diamond Tree Care we own 2 cranes which we can utilize to safely remove the tree. Our experts also have a few tricks up their sleeves when it comes to rigging and speed-lining pieces of trees to the ground.

Yes, typically we would clean up all debris but if you wish to keep the wood we can leave it behind.

The urban environment is a stressful place for a tree to live; we are constantly raking up leaves, reducing the amount of organic matter available to the tree, we walk or drive over their root zones compacting the soil, and we contaminate soils with road salt or other chemicals. Because of this abnormal stress trees need a little help from us in order to be healthy. Watering is one of the simplest ways to reduce the stress that urban trees face. Trees like a deep soaking rather than a light sprinkling, like we water lawns or other plants. Deep watering encourages fine feeder roots to move deeper reducing the chances of drying out during drought periods.

No. Trees are complex living beings; they sense weaknesses in their structure and their growth reacts to accommodate this. Topping of trees or reducing the crown size negatively impacts the long term structure of the tree. Removing a large portion of the crown stimulates a stress response that results in multiple shoots emerging from the point at which the tree was cut. The resultant shoots grow at a rate that far exceeds the normal growth rate of branches and the attachment points are much weaker. Essentially topping a tree results in a faster growing, thicker and weaker structured crown.

Yes! Mulch, if applied properly, is great for improving tree health. Woodchip mulch can help to improve soil structure; in the process of breaking down it can create pore space in the soil for water and gas exchange. The decomposition of the mulch also encourages insects and beneficial microorganisms into the soil. Another benefit of mulch is that it can regulate the moisture content of the soil. When applying mulch you should make sure that it is not piled against the trunk as this area of bark is not designed to have moisture trapped against it and can lead to decay. The mulch ring can be as wide as you would like it to be, the wider the better as fine feeder roots can spread great distances from the trunk.
