We provide you with fully trained Certified Arborists to maintain your trees and shrubs. We do not "top" trees, and no Certified Arborist will. Please ask us for more information on why "topping" is harmful to trees. Our pruning is done to ISA standards and we will advise you on proper methods and when to have your pruning done.
REMEMBER: Winter is a very good season to prune most trees
TREE / STUMP REMOVAL
Occasionally situations will arrise where you must consider removing a tree. We can first assess the tree and its location, and advise you of your options. Many times trees are just planted in the wrong location and have outgrown their space. We believe in preserving rather than destroying when possible. If removal is necessary, we can also treat the stump and roots, then grind it out to re-plant another tree and sod. Make sure you replace at least one or two more trees to replace any large tree removal for future generations to enjoy! Canadian Tree Care is fully insured and all our staff are covered by WCB.
TREE / SHRUB PLANTING
Anyone can dig a hole and “throw” a tree in it, but has it been planted to proper I.S.A. specifications. Has the right species of plant been chosen for the planting site? C.T.C. crews plant trees properly!
Many “so-called” landscapers do not know how to plant a tree properly, we see this every year ! Many trees decline and even die due to improper planting. We can review your landscape design before you plant.
Our Vermeer 1000XL and 1200XL wood chippers will take up to 12 inch diameter logs and turn them into a recyclable product. This service is available at an hourly rate – please call for details.
LANDSCAPE RENOVATION, SOIL & SOD
In landscaping, our specialty is taking established properties that may have some overgrown trees & shrubs and/or worn out lawns, and revitalizing the landscape! We install many types of mulch ground covers along with edging and new plants. We can remove old worn out lawns and bring in new topsoil and sod to enhance your property.
Remember, proper landscaping ALWAYS adds to your property value. Canadian Tree Care is a LANTA member. We’d be happy to provide our expertise on your next yard project.
You may have trees that need to come down to make room for a new building or development. We can help you choose the right trees to remove and preserve ones to leave in place. Our Certified Foremen are very experienced in safely falling very large trees. We can then cut up the trees into usable firewood lengths and chip up the branches for recycling. Call us at your design stage and we can advise how to preserve trees during the construction process.

ENVIROCARE / PEST & DISEASE MANAGEMENT
Call us to have your trees and shrubs inspected regularly for pests and diseases. We will only provide treatment when it is completely necessary with environmentally friendly products. Some companies will spray trees over and over again without checking pest populations first. We only do inspect and treat programs. Once again we believe in being PROACTIVE by keeping trees and shrubs healthy by proper fertilizing and watering. A healthy plant resists pests and diseases much better than an unhealthy one. The following are some pests we typically have in the Edmonton area:
The very best treatment is preventative maintenance and selecting the right tree for the right location at the time of planting.
