Why Hire an Arborist for Proper Tree Removal?

Besides the impact of pests, disease and time, trees face harsh environmental conditions. Branches weaken with high winds, snow and ice accumulation in winter.

Summer storms can bring heavy rain that can saturate soil and weaken tree roots. Ottawa has faced exceptional weather conditions: damaging winds, heavy snow falls, ice storms, tornadoes and flooding. Violent storms and intense winds toppled more than 1200 trees on municipal property in Ottawa in summer 2018 and this does not include the many that were destroyed on private property. Conditions that have left residents with debris, broken branches and uprooted trees. In these cases, the damage is irreparable and possibly hazardous.

Besides being unsightly on your property, fallen branches and dead trees can pose a danger to people and property. They can cause damage to overhead power lines, foundations, roofs, cars and other structures.
