Tree Removal Permits
Most municipalities within the GTA have bylaws protecting their private and municipal trees so often a Tree Removal Permit is required. Not sure if your tree is protected? Click here to find out.
Typically an arborist report describing the condition of the tree, the reason for the removal, and a replanting plan accompanies a Tree Removal Permit application. I can provide you with the arborist report and be happy to guide you through the application process.
Tree Protection Plans
A Construction Related Arborist Report
Are you thinking of constructing an addition to your home or adding a pool to your back yard perhaps? If you have trees on your property or your neighbours have trees that are close-by, your municipality will want to know how the trees are going to be protected. That's where the Tree Protection Plan comes in. The plan would typically include:
-A site visit to inventory & assess bylaw protected trees
-A description of the scope of work & how the trees will be impacted
-Specifications for tree protection formulated with the typical requirements of Urban Forestry in mind
-A replanting plan if required
It's always great to work with my clients during the design phase of their project, that way, any potential tree issues can be addressed before the design is completed.
Tree Care Coaching
Would you like to learn how to properly take care of your trees? There's nothing I love more about being an arborist than teaching people how to care for their valuable assets. That is why I offer tree care coaching. We can walk through your property together and discuss any potential issues your trees may face and talk about the importance of water management and healthy soil. I can teach you how to make proper pruning cuts and fine pruning methods. It's better to leave the large pruning jobs to the pros but I'm sure you'd be surprised how therapeutic it can be methodically pruning a Japanese maple!
