About Professional Tree Services and Certified Arborists

Why is it important to hire a professional tree service near me?

Certified arborists are trained in proper pruning techniques, which help maintain the structural integrity of trees while promoting their overall health. They also adhere to safety standards and use appropriate tools, ensuring that your tree care project is completed without any accidents or injuries. Hiring a professional ensures that your trees receive the best possible care.

Right Pruning Methods

Using the right pruning methods is crucial for maintaining healthy trees on your property. Improper techniques can lead to irreversible damage, such as stunted growth or decay. Certified arborists have extensive knowledge about various types of trees along with their specific requirements ensuring optimal results when it comes to tree maintenance.

  • Crown cleaning: Removing dead, dying, and diseased branches from the crown area of a tree.
  • Crown thinning: Selectively removing branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown.
  • Crown raising: Removing lower branches to provide clearance for pedestrians or vehicles below.
  • Crown reduction: Reducing the size or height of a tree by selectively cutting back its limbs and foliage.
Professional Tree Services vs Unskilled Labour

Unskilled workers may lack knowledge about proper pruning techniques, which are crucial for maintaining the structural integrity and overall health of trees. Improper cuts can leave trees vulnerable to disease, insect infestatio. Other example of bad pruning practice include: leaving stubs, pruning more than 10-15% of a mature tree, cutting too close to the tree (a flush cut), cutting off all the leaves but leaving pieces of wood in the tree and so forth.

Fly by night workers with a chainsaw, landscapers, DIY homeowners and other untrained people are the usual culprits. Their price is low, but the cost can be very high as the City will issue an Order to Comply when they discover trees that have been harmed by poor practices. Compliance Orders force homeowners to have the tree pruned and mulched, or removed and may also carry a large fine for violating the bylaw.

Why should I hire a Certified Arborist?

Certified arborists have the knowledge and experience to ensure quality workmanship and protect you from potential liabilities through extensive insurance coverage for their work and employees. While handymen and landscapers may be capable of removing branches, sometimes the cure is worse than the disease: cutting branches and limb off incorrectly can cause significant injury and damage to a tree.

Ensuring you get value from tree care

The other thing that Certified Arborists bring is an expert perspective with a longer, more comprehensive view. Cutting off a few nuisance branches may seem simple enough, and sometimes it can be. Other times it won’t actually achieve what you want, like added sunlight for your garden or to get a tree away from your car.

Small, low branches are rarely the cause of the worst tree problems, instead it is the branches much higher up that are shading your backyard or rubbing against the roof. Since we see these issues constantly, the perspective of a Certified Arborist can inform your decision and help you get the most out of your tree pruning.

Certified Arborists are Knowledgeable

Using the right pruning methods is crucial for maintaining healthy trees on your property. Improper techniques can lead to irreversible damage, such as stunted growth or decay. Certified arborists have extensive knowledge about various types of trees along with their specific requirements ensuring optimal results when it comes to tree maintenance.

Unskilled workers may lack knowledge about proper pruning techniques, which are crucial for maintaining the structural integrity and overall health of trees. Improper cuts can leave trees vulnerable to disease, insect infestations and decline.

Avoid Costly Mistakes

Other example of bad pruning practice include: leaving stubs, pruning more than 10-15% of a mature tree, cutting too close to the tree (a flush cut), cutting off all the leaves but leaving pieces of wood in the tree and so forth.

What are the benefits of professional tree services?

  • Promotes healthy growth: Regular pruning removes dead or diseased branches, allowing more sunlight and air circulation for healthier foliage.
  • Increase property value: Well-maintained trees can enhance curb appeal and increase the value of your home.
  • Safety: Removing hazardous branches reduces the risk of accidents caused by falling limbs or debris during storms.
  • Disease prevention: Timely removal of infected parts prevents diseases from spreading to other areas within a tree or neighboring plants.

What are some types of tree services available near me?

  • Aesthetic trimming: Making your tree look more beautiful or appealing, like a feature tree for landscaping.
  • Functional pruning: Getting branches removed to improve access to your yard, reduce animal traffic or increase sunlight onto your grass or gardens.
  • Structural Pruning: Correct growth habit, alter the shape or improve sun and wind penetration for tree vitality.
  • Deadwood Pruning: Taking out dead branches to make the tree healthier and safer.
  • Maintenance pruning: Removing live branches that have grown too big, spread too wide or have structural issues like rot and decay.
  • Hazard reduction: Removing branches or limbs that pose a safety hazard to people or property.

Tree Maintenance FAQ

Why is tree trimming important for homeowners in Toronto?

Trees only began growing in urban environments during industrialization some two hundred years ago. Since they spent millions of years growing in natural environments, the changes that cities have brought are relatively recent. As a result, many trees suffer in urban environments. Since trees that are poorly maintained become a hazard and an eyesore, this can impact safety, property values and your enjoyment of your home.

Excess sunlight, drought, poor soil, pollution, damage from vehicles and other urban issues all take a toll on trees. When done right, pruning trees to remove overgrowth, limit spread and take out dead branches helps to keep trees healthy for longer. It can also keep them safer during storms, protecting your property from damage.

In tree risk assessment, there is no hazard where there is nothing of value like a person or property. A tree falling or dead branches breaking in an empty field will harm no one, but in a busy city this is not the case. Tree pruning in Toronto involves identifying and managing hazards to reduce the risk of injury or damage from trees while still keeping them as healthy as possible.

Does tree pruning hurt trees?

Trees that are pruned according to best arboricultural practices are not being harmed. In forest environments, trees compete with one another and will shed limbs or be overtaken by other larger trees. In the city, this competition for resources is lesser, which means overgrowth can occur, as well as dead branches, storm breaks and other issues. Pruning trees to contain their size, spread and spread as well as eliminating hazards keeps them healthy and safe for longer. When trees are not maintained, they can become very costly to fix or remove in future.

Why is tree maintenance important?

Trees enhance your property, improving the look, feel and privacy you enjoy at home. People with regular access to nature are happier and healthier, live longer and perform better in all areas of life. Trees and greenery clean the air around your home, naturally reduce heat in the summer time and make a picture perfect backdrop for relaxing and rejuvenating in your own private oasis.

Proper upkeep and maintenance of trees increases your safety and security, while reducing any nuisances they pose to your roof, pool, car, deck or other area.

Homes with enhanced curb appeal from well-maintained trees, hedges and shrubs can see up to 10% increases in value at sale, increasing your return at the time you need it most.

Great Reviews - Toronto Tree Service

Vista is an excellent company to deal with. The owners went above and beyond expectations to help deal with a unique situation. The guys who did the work were not only professional but also very polite. I will be using them again to help with other work in the future.

We are very happy with all the work Vista Tree Management accomplished on our property.  James was very professional and gave us excellent advice concerning the trimming of our 12 foot cedar hedges and the pruning of our mature silver maple trees.  The crew was very friendly and hard working, they did a tremendous job on the work required and they did an excellent job with the clean up.  We would highly recommend Vista Tree services to our family and friends.  We will definitely use them again for all of our future projects.

They just did my front lawn, and boy, did they leave a lasting impression!

They were straightforward with the plan - clear and precise, ensuring that I was well informed of the process and outcome. The execution was meticulous and exceeded my expectations. Moreover, the cleanliness post-service was remarkable, leaving no trace of debris or disruption.

They were on time and was the epitome of friendly and cheerful—felt like I had friends over for a garden party!

Overall, their service was excellent at every stage. The inquiry, consultation, customer support, day-of service, follow-up, and payment process were all seamless.

I had peace of mind and very happy with Vista. I highly recommend them to those in need of reliable and thorough tree management service.

I can’t say enough positive comment about James and Vista Tree. We were “ghosted” by 2 other tree management companies last fall. James came by and provided separate quotes for two very large trees on our property, both of which were a challenge to severely prune. They were a hazard and had to be addressed. The quotes were delivered the next day after assessment. The team was here on two separate days (April 30 and May 7). They were efficient, professional and most importantly safe. Hollis, the arborist who climbed the trees was friendly and communicated everything he was doing to the trees as well as any changes he made once he was up in the tree. The other members of the crew (Syd and Pete, I can’t remember the others) were professional and friendly. They cleaned everything up and were open to any suggestions we had regarding disposal of the wood. I would highly recommend this company. We will be having them back again to do more work, in the fall.

Leaside neighbours take note!! Exceptional and professional service from start to finish. The team at Vista Tree Management responded to an urgent and critical situation. They were efficient, skilled and courteous. They handled the tree removal with precision and left our backyard immaculate. I highly recommend this team for your tree removal needs. They beat the competition by $1000+

James and his team did a great job pruning and trimming our old silver maple. James answered all my questions, provided expert advice and had his team do the work shortly after. The workers were professional, cleaned the space well, and were really efficient. Would definitely recommend Vista Tree management!

James was great! Very professional and you can definitely tell he knows what he’s talking about. They provided a quote in a timely manner booked us in for the tree pruning within a few days afterwards. The job was done quickly, professionally and the crew was friendly and polite. They cleaned up everything once the work was completed. Highly recommend!

Safe, fast, personable team - did a great job with tree trimming and removal! Note: the removal of a tree was not on the original scope and they still made it happen!
By the end of the day, I wouldn’t have even known they were there.

Very Happy with the professional advice and service we received from Vista which was promptly done. The follow-up to ensure we were happy with the work was appreciated.

Highly recommend! Michal came by first to take a look at things and provide the estimate. He’s obviously passionate about what he does and I learned a ton about my tree that I had no idea about! He gave me the confidence I needed to schedule the work. James and the “J-Crew” arrived on the scheduled day and were super friendly. The team did an amazing job with trimming my large overgrown maple and a fantastic cleanup job. My yard looked better than before they arrived. Will definitely have them back for future maintenance! Thanks Vista!

Great service from a great crew of people! The team was amazing from consulting on best ways to tackle the project, safely removing the trees and making sure the job was done to satisfaction. Would highly recommend and definitely use them again.
google
These guys are incredibly professional and by far the best arborist that have visited our home. And we've had many!

What impressed me the most was throughout their only concern was safety for my family and our property. With that and that only in mind they made all the cuts and changes that were required. When they left, I felt the most relief I felt about the trees in our backyard in a long time.

Truly appreciate your hard work and will highly recommend you in the future!
google
After doing a fair bit of research into Toronto-based arborists, we decided to go with Vista, and are very happy we did! From my first meeting with Mike when he came to give us a free quote, I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. Mike and his crew were punctual on the day they came to prune the deadwood from our very large Red Oak tree, answered my questions, and worked for 7 hours straight to get the job done. We were impressed from beginning to end, and wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again!
google
These guys are the best! Very professional, easy to work with and very nice people.
James was amazing in communication and and arranging everything. He is a wonderful person and professional. I had 4 different companies for the quotes and Vista Tree were the best by every criteria I had in mind. After the work was done they cleaned the whole territory even the mess that was here before them. I would definitely recommend them and will call them again when I need any tree work done. Thanks!
