Tree Trimming and Removal

If you have a tree that is already in bad shape and needs to be removed make sure to do it as soon as possible.  Dead trees can cause multiple problems.  One of the most dangerous being the instability of the structure.  The tree may not be strong enough to stay rooted or for the branches to stay intact.  These may fall on buildings, cars or people.  Dead trees are also a breading ground for insects that feed on the tree.

Damage, disease or safety concerns can turn some trees from an asset into a liability. When this occurs, SPM Landscape can be trusted for safe and efficient tree removal service in the London, ON areas.

Look for these signs as an indicator it may be time to remove:

  1. You will begin to see heaving soil at the base of the trunk and beneath the canopy of the tree

  2. Decay-producing fungi, such as mushrooms, growing at the base of the trunk

  3. Chipped or peeling bark and cracks in the trunk

  4. Cavities in the trunk or large scaffold branches

  5. Dead or hanging branches in the upper crown

  6. Fine twigs without living buds near the ends of branches


Did you know that properly pruned trees live longer and retain a pleasing, natural appearance?

Pruning encourages air circulation, which reduces disease incidence and the possibility of damage from high winds. It also removes unhealthy or dangerous limbs that can easily fail in severe weather and allows more sunlight to reach your understory plants.

While maintenance pruning of most shade trees can be done anytime, certain species should be pruned at specific times of the year.

Make sure your tree stay healthy by getting rid of the dead branches.  Keeping a tree well trimmed will increase the lift of the tree as well as make it look clean and neat! Order tree trimming tools here: Tree Trimming
