Tree Removal FAQs

When should a tree be removed?

A tree should only be removed when there’s no other option. This includes if it dies, becomes unsafe, gets diseased or infested by insects, blocks construction, is leaning over, or is growing too closely to your home.

How much does it cost to remove a tree?

The cost of tree removal has many different variables to take into account, including:

  • the size of the tree
  • the location of the tree
  • and the difficulty of the tree removal

As there is no set price for removing a tree, we provide free quotes and can assist you with providing different options to best accommodate you and your budget.

How will the tree be cut down?

We use many different methods when removing trees, including climbing, or using bucket trucks and cranes when needed. We also use a wide range of rigging equipment to delicately lower large branches or logs to the ground to avoid damage to turf or objects surrounding the work area.

Do I need a permit to cut down a tree?

Based on your local municipal laws, you may be required to obtain a permit before removing a tree. In the city of Ottawa, a tree permit is required if the tree is over 50cm in diameter at chest height. In the township of Russell, you do not require a permit to cut down a tree.

Tree Removal Prep

Tree removal is a serious task that requires a serious team if it’s expected to go smoothly. It’s also dangerous work, and if you aren’t experienced, it’s crucial to find a company that is skilled, efficient and reliable to help you out.

The Best Time of Year to Cut Down Trees

Cutting down a tree is always a bit of a heartbreaking decision to make, but sometimes it is a necessary fact of life. Whether your tree is diseased, or you want to open up your yard, the time of year you choose to have it removed matters.

How Arborists Cut Down Trees

Ever wondered how the pros cut down trees? In a way, tree removal is an art form, requiring skill and patience to complete properly while maintaining safety at all times. So unless you are a trained arborist, tree cutting is not a DIY job.
