Tree Care Tips

Best Tree Service Companies in Toronto


Each year, at Vista Tree Management, we meet with over a thousand homeowners from Toronto to discuss their trees and what can be done about them.

Many of them are seeking multiple quotes and appreciate our educational approach to tree services. When we’re candid about tree care, options, and costs, we’re often asked, “What other tree services in Toronto would you recommend?”

We want our clients to be as informed as possible, and we’re not shy about our competition. We’re blatantly honest in our assessments of the advantages of other tree care companies and know how we fit in beside them.

Since we’re already talking about this when we visit homes for a free assessment, we’ll share it with you here. Here is a list of some of the best tree services in Toronto, with a solid track record of delivery. 

Top 6 Toronto Arborist Companies

1. Cohen & Master

Having been around for many years, Cohen & Master serves Toronto and the GTA. They are a full service tree company with several tree crews, equipment, a consulting division and plant health care. They have a heavy emphasis on caring for and loving trees.

2. Elite Tree Care

Like their name suggests, Elite is a top tree company in Toronto. They have been around for a number of years and are a smaller company that still packs a big punch with professional certified arborists and excellent service.

3. Bartlett Tree Experts

Bartlett is a behemoth company, but the Toronto area shop is medium-sized compared to other tree services. While they provide pruning and removal, they really shine in plant health care, with an excellent research laboratory in the USA that helps them get to the bottom of tree health issues.

4. Heritage Tree Care

Located in the west end of Toronto, this company is well known through High Park, the Kingsway and downtown for their tree pruning and removal. They’ve done some great wood reclamation projects, taking wood from cut trees and refashioning it into custom furniture and accessories for clients.

5. Davey Tree 

You’ll recognize their green bucket trucks out on the road doing street pruning for the City of Toronto. While they do a lot of municipal work, Davey also provides residential services to home owners. They tend towards larger tree removal jobs, and specialize in cutting trees around hydro lines (these workers are also known as utility arborists).

6. Rooted Tree Service

Rooted is located in the west end of Toronto and works throughout the city. They’re experts in tree removal, and have a somewhat unique approach to jobs. They often put multiple climbers in a tree and work with more than an average number of crew members on site. 


Those are some companies to consider if you’re getting quotes for your Toronto tree pruning or removal project. We also have a list of much smaller local tree companies operating around the city.

James responded quickly to my request for a quote and he and his crew did an extremely professional job with perfect cleanup. I would recommend these guys in a heartbeat. James is an excellent communicator and a pleasure to work with. Thanks for giving my garden a great jump on Spring.
Lawrence Tavers
James and Michael have been the best arborists I’ve ever dealt with. First off, they were friendly and professional. They didn’t just throw out a number, they went through the job and what needed to be done and what didn’t and gave me a reasonable price. On the day, the crew came and did a fantastic job. It was a hard one but they made it look easy. And the clean up was perfect, my yard looked better than it did before they came. They’re my go to from now on.

I got two trees removed for a renovation project, and vista was on it right from the start. Report came through right away, permits right after but then due to some cost over runs I had to delay for 4 months and hold off on the removals until last month. Trees came down so well, crew was really professional. They left the site looking CLEAN and thats saying a lot as it had a lot of builder garbage around .stump grinding happened right away. James and Mike went above and beyond to manage this and help me out when the unexpected happened. Definitely recommend.
Ronald Romick
Very professional work. We are very satisfied with the quality of the work done. We would recommend Vista 100 percent. Great quality, performance and professional.
John Rydzkowski
I had James and his crew cut down and remove my 40'+ blue spruce before the wind blew it over. There was an urgency in getting the work done and they were there for me. They were very professional, worked safely and cleaned up when they were finished. They also showed me proof of insurance and WSIB which is very important as a home owner. I'm happy to recommend them to anyone. Thanks 😊

Vista Tree Management came to our house and did a wonderful job helping to protect the roof from squirrel damage. James walked around the perimeter of the house with me and pointed out every tree branch that might possibly be the instrument of a squirrel finding its way to the roof. He then set up a time, came over promptly, and in short time cut down many tree limbs and branches. He consulted with me about whether anything else needed to be done, and when I pointed out one last branch, he cut it down. I feel I have finally found a tree service which has the knowledge and expertise to help with my property. My husband and I are more than satisfied! The staff at Vista Tree Management were so very helpful.

We had the pleasure of working with Vista recently and we could not have asked for better service. We have a small apple tree and hedge in our front yard that we wanted pruned. As part of the quote, we had also requested that some time be spent with us as the pruning occurred so that we could learn how to properly care for our garden going forward. James was prompt, responsive and incredibly thorough. He completed the tasks exactly as we had discussed and as was quoted. He was patient and spent lots of time teaching us the various pruning methods that he was utilizing. Not only does he have excellent attention to detail while pruning, but he also takes great care in cleaning up all the plant debris once he was finished the job. We can’t thank him enough for the excellent service provided. We will be sure to reach out to Vista for all of our future pruning/landscaping needs. Thanks James.
