There are several tree trimming and pruning techniques that can greatly increase the esthetics and over all health of a tree. See the descriptions below for a better understanfing of the services that we offer in this area:
- Tree Trimming – removes approximately 1/3 of growth from the previous year to reduce weight on the outside edges and improves the shape of the tree.
- Tree Thinning / Spiral Pruning – involves trimming branches from both the centre and edges of the tree removing dead wood, and cross branches. This process decreases the density of the tree and allows for more view scape and also allows wind to pass more easily through the branches.
Crown reduction pruning is most often used when a tree has grown too large for its permitted space. This method, wich removes 8 to 10 feet off the top of the tree, is preferred to topping because it is safer for the trees health and also results in a more natural appearance.
Canopy raising is common in urban settings where low branches may be undesirable because they obstruct vision and may interfere with pedestrian and vehicular traffic. We can remove the lower branches and create the space that is required in a way that will not harm the integrity or health of the tree.
A properly trimmed hedge can add value and esthetic appeal to your property. Tree Works offers trimming and pruning for any sized hedge or shrubbery. Tree Removal Stump Grinding After the tree has been removed, we are also able to completely remove the stump with a process called “stump grinding.” This process allows us to essentially “grind” the stump to below ground level, allowing new sod, soil or cement to be placed on top. Commercial land clearing is also available if multiple trees are to be removed.

Having a dead tree on your property can be extreme hazardous. We encourage any homeowners who discover a rotting tree, no matter the size, to contact our certified tree extractors and book an evaluation as soon as possible. The urgency of this matter is due to a wide range of reasons including, but not limited to the following:
- Dead trees draw in pests
Your tree might be dead or in procedure of passing away, however that does not imply wildlife won’t attempt to burrow and infest the dying tree.
While a great family of bluebirds may move in, your tree might also draw in rats and termites. Both insects can migrate the short distance to your house. Additionally, the longer you leave a dead tree unattended, the more likely the chances that unwanted pests will set up shop in your backyard.
- Dead trees are unsightly
Dead trees aren’t visually pleasing. If you invest money on other elements of landscaping, you’re neutralizing those upgrades with the unattractive look of a dead tree. Similar to the previous point, the longer you leave the decaying tree, the worse the problem will become. Initially, when a tree dies you cannot immediately tell. It is not like a mammal the quickly appears deceased. Instead, a tree will slowly but surely lose its colour, lose its leaves and start to decay and dry out.
- Tree diseases are transmittable
If your tree died from (or is currently passing away from) a tree illness, other plants can contract that disease.
Powdery mildews can develop on the branches and trunks, and leaves become prone to chlorosis, where they lose their lavish green colour and end up being yellow or lime green.
If you planted flowers below your tree, or you planted other trees in the general vicinity, the same illness might contaminate these living and healthy plants. Additionally, the yucky pests mentioned in point 1 can infest and negatively implant the livelihood of your living ferns.
- Branches may fall
Deteriorated branches from dead trees may fall on a windy day or during a storm. In actuality, these branches might fall at any time, ruining your house or your property in freak accidents that could have otherwise been easily avoided with the help of an expert certified arborist.
They’re likewise a liability if they fall on your neighbour’s building. Your tree, your insurance!
Don’t forget, animals and people may walk beneath the tree and suffer a significant injury, if not death, from being hit by a branch.
