Tree Removal Services
Across Alberta permits are not required to perform tree removal services on private property. This has allowed a lot of companies into the tree removal services side of the industry. Lack of training, knowledge and safety is a current issue in the tree care industry. We strive to teach and inform our safe tree removal procedure and knowledge on to our clients and fellow arborists any chance we get. Anything to help keep the tree removal industry safe.
Tree removal should only be performed by professionals that hold the highest values for safety and ethics the arborist industry stands for. Sometimes a tree does not need to be removed and is a suitable candidate for our tree pruning services.

Stump grinding - Stump Removal
After a tree removal, it’s always recommended to grind / remove the stump. The safe and efficient way to remove your stump is to use our stump grinding service.
Once our tree removal team has safely completed a project, our stump grinding team can move in. With safety in mind our team will set up screens and establish their safe work zone, so everyone is safe, and your property well protected.
Grinding the stump down approximately 4-6” below grade will ensure no regrowth will occur. Our team will also grind out those unsightly roots that big spruce and poplars tend to leave behind after a tree removal. Removing the stump completely to plant another tree in its place can also be achieved with our stump grinders, although larger stumps may require us to bring in a mini excavator to help complete the task.
