We used Croft Tree Experts to remove one tree and trim 4 others on our property. They were very professional and did a great job. We will be having them back in the spring to plant a replacement tree. Excellent job!
Ottawa storm damage can be severe. While mature trees are very resilient by nature, sometimes storms are strong enough to cause irreparable damage, requiring emergency tree removal or emergency tree cleanup. After a strong Ottawa storm, you might find that your once strong tree or trees have been damaged by the elements and need emergency tree removal. Be on the lookout for:
- Large cracks in tree trunks
- Uprooted trees
- Broken branches
- Fallen trees
If you have noticed these signs of tree damage on your property, you should call Croft Tree Experts today. Trees can be dangerous, and if your tree poses a risk it will be something you want to take care of right away. Our expert arborists will be able to consult with you to decide the best course of action. Depending on the extent of damage to your tree, you might be able to preserve your storm damaged trees. In other cases where the damage is more severe and the tree creates potential risks, you might need to have it removed. Whether you need to remove the tree altogether or just need to repair your damaged trees, trust Ottawa’s leading tree storm damage clean up service.
Great service, quick communication, crew showed up and explained everything and did a great job trimming mature tree while maintaining shape and health of tree. Made sure we were happy with the job before cleaning up all debris and leaving the site in great condition. A+ service.
The experience with Croft was pleasant and efficient. The were quick to come and give me an estimate and keep me informed of the process all the way through. The crew that came to trim my trees were polite and got the job done quickly. They recognized that a tree is a living part of one’s home and any mistake cannot be easily rectified. Whenever there was a question, they asked me right away. That was really appreciated.
After getting assessments done from a few companies, I ultimately chose to have Croft to do the work because of the professionalism from David during his initial assessment. Kristy at the office was always helpful and quick to respond to any inquiries that I had along the way. The crew worked fast and I appreciate that they tried to save our little mountain ash tangled in the maple!
Great pre-work consultation and quote. Professional work on the day of, with “walk around review” with me after the work was completed. Happy to say the team did a great clean up as well, as there was a lot of material to remove. Very happy with the service and support.
Prompt attention and diagnosis of my maple’s algae and fungus issues. Tree pruning and shaping has corrected the problem. The crew also did deep pruning of backyard spruce and basswood. They were focused, professional and thorough and did a great clean up of all debris. They asked about my satisfaction with the work, and made suggestions on how the trees should be cut for best esthetics. I have hired other Ottawa arborists in the past, but this company will now have my business, based on my total satisfaction.
I would definitely recommend Croft Tree Experts to others looking to have trees removed. They were prompt on their initial response, getting the quote, being clear on what was going to be done and what was needed (e.g. moving cars from street and neighbouring lots); as well as confirming that a removal would be required. The work was done well (from what I can tell), staff were friendly and professional.
We’re very happy with the quality of work and professionalism provided by Croft Tree Experts. The large, old silver maple they removed from our yard was a challenging task. But from their estimator to the work crew itself, they arrived when they said they would, acted with great professionalism, removed the tree quickly and safely, and fully fulfilled all their contractual obligations. They also did a great job cleaning up our property when the task was done. If we need any more tree work on our property, we’d happily employ Croft once again.
I highly recommend Croft Tree Experts. They responded quickly to my request for an estimate, with a price that was quite reasonable. They kept me informed of when they planned to show up to do the work, and kept to their timings. Their work crew was polite, and efficient. Once the job was complete they cleaned up all the waste. I don’t think you can ask for more.
Arrived at scheduled time, very knowledgeable guys. This is the second time I have used Croft Tree Experts and I have been delighted both times. They did a great job on my ugly maple which had been massacred a few years back by another arborist company. Quick and tidy. Back yard was left as they found it without any stray branches. These guys definitely have our loyalty. Definitely recommend them.
I have used Croft Tree Experts for several years now. They are indeed “experts”. They are very knowledgeable and provided good advice. They come when they say they will and do a very efficient job. They also clean all the clippings and branches . I certainly would recommend them.
This is the second time in 4 years that I have used this company to trim my Manitoba Maple tree. I am completely satisfied with their service. The most impressive part was their level of clean up after this trimming. I would highly recommend this company to anyone seeking quality work done by professionals.
It had been several years since my beautiful large but severely overgrown ornamental crabapple tree had had any attention. On recommendation from a neighbour who had just had an excellent experience with Croft Tree Experts I approached them for a quote. I feared the worst having dealt with tree companies before but the quote came in at a very reasonable cost. I had called the company and Dave came to see the object in question and when he queried me about what I wanted he understood precisely what I had in mind. These are strange times so between quote and work a few weeks elapsed. But then I got a message saying they were available at such and such a time to do the work. I agreed to the time (as any company must do they gave a range of time) and sure enough the crew arrived pretty much right on the minute. Work was done, all extremely professional. Everything was done in a timely manner and the ground was pretty much spotless when they were finished. I absolutely love the results as do my neighbours. Billing was efficient and it came in right on quote. Couldn’t be happier with the service. Thanks Croft!
We needed four stumps ground. From the time of first contact until the service truck pulled away, the experience has been completely positive. The estimate was quick and the price was right. The service staff were careful, polite and professional. The job and the cleanup were very well done. I recommend their services.
We were very pleased with the quality of work and professionalism of the guys. They were friendly and understood what we wanted done with the trees. We would have no hesitation in recommending Croft Tree Experts for any tree trimming and removal.
I had a crab apple tree that needed some serious TLC as previous owners didn’t maintain it at all. I selected Croft for not only having an informative website but for their professionalism. They arrived on time, did their work and cleaned up right after. Our tree looks so much better now. I should also point out that Croft took care in keeping their distance due to COVID-19 crisis which I greatly appreciated. I would choose them again.
Prompt service, courteous and knowledgeable staff, efficient pruning of trees, great cleanup and reasonable prices all led to a highly rewarding experience with Croft Tree Experts.
We are very happy with the service we recently had from the Croft Tree Experts. We had a large locust tree to be pruned and an old lilac tree stump to be removed/ground up. Kristy in the office was very helpful in booking out appointments and the gentlemen who came to do the work were efficient, knowledgeable, friendly and did a great job from start to finish. We will definitely use them again and recommend them to address any tree issues you may have.
Very competitive pricing. The crew showed up during the scheduled time and were courteous and professional. They did an excellent job trimming an out of control hedge and removed all debris to our complete satisifaction. Would highly recommend their services.
I called 4 tree trimming services in Ottawa and picked Croft Tree Experts. They were very pleasant to deal with, reliable and got the job done fast and with quality. This particular job involved a high tree that was interfering with our eaves. They cleaned up after cutting several large branches without killing the tree. As a bonus, they were the most reasonably priced. Highly recommend.
Very punctual, professional, helpful, and friendly service. They removed a small dead bush in my front yard promptly. They also provided advice on when to replace it which was helpful as I would have done the wrong thing (replacing it in short order as opposed to waiting until next spring). They also advised on what other options I had to remove the dead bush and ultimately did what was best for me. Great service. Hope to employ them again should the need arise. I highly recommend them.
Simply excellent service! Kyle arrived promptly as promised and gave a thorough overview of what should be done to eliminate risk to neighbors’ property from my trees. Other work included significant cleanup of a neglected locust tree and some large maples. The team worked the better part of a full day which included all the necessary cleanup of debris afterward. Could not be more pleased with the results. The locust, which I despised the look of previously, now looks wonderful. Thanks to all of you!
My wife and I had Croft Tree Experts tree specialist Kyle come to our home to appraise and give us a quote on an overgrown Maple and a Spruce that needed trimming. Kyle was very thorough in his explanation of how he could take care of our issues. He didn’t try to oversell me and actually suggested I not spend money on a very tall Cedar that I thought I should bundle at the top. He could have easily made more money from us but he was kind enough to suggest that we shouldn’t bother unless we were adamant about doing so. The final quote was more than reasonable for us. When Dave and Jeremy came to do the work a couple of weeks later (they are quite booked up with projects) they worked efficiently and did a superb job on trimming back our trees. They were very courteous, friendly and also asked us if there was anything in particular that we wanted them to address before they started the work. Our property was left spotlessly clean. Trees look amazing !! I can’t say how pleased we are with the work they did for us and I highly recommend Croft Tree Experts to anyone looking for professional level workmanship at a fair price.
Fantastic job and at even better price. The yard was clean, the hedges look great! Thanks guys! No need to shop around, you’ve found the RIGHT people!
The team from Croft were courteous and professional. Both Kyle, who came to do the estimate, and the crew who took down the tree answered all my questions. They removed a large maple that was very close to mine and the neighbors house safely and expertly. Would not hesitate to recommend them.
We wish to thank the two crews that came out to cut numerous trees on our property, as well as trim our large maple and take away a few stumps. They did a wonderful job, worked very hard, were very accommodating, tidied up before leaving, and were very pleasant.
Excellent job pruning two large trees. The guys were friendly and thorough in cleaning up after the job was done. I have recommended them to neighbours, friends and family. Great job guys!
We are very happy with Croft Tree Experts. Kyle was a pleasure to deal with and took great care pruning our giant Manitoba maple and cedar hedges. The price was extremely reasonable compared to other quotes we received, and they left our yard and neighbors’ yards pristine once the work was complete. I would definitely recommend their services to others seeking a qualified arborist.
First and foremost, getting an arborist to help you remove storm damage is easier, faster, more effective, and less stressful than taking on the task yourself. After a particularly strong storm you might have a fallen tree to handle large branches scattered throughout your property. If a tree has fallen near your home, car, or shed we can perform emergency tree removal while minimizing damage to your property. Removing a fallen tree on your own is difficult, time consuming, and dangerous.
When our arborists are there to help you clean up your storm damage,they are also able to examine the rest of your property to check that you don’t have any other potential tree hazards that you might have missed. Sometimes after a storm trees are significantly weakened and pose a risk, however the signs are not always visible.
If the storm-damaged tree or trees on your property do not pose a risk towards the people or property surrounding it, Croft Tree Experts’ arborists can help repair it allowing for the best possible recovery. Our arborists can prune dead limbs as well as brace and cable your storm-damaged tree to help ensure that your tree recovers and can survive the next strong storm that rolls through. On top of making the cleanup process easier, hiring an expert arborist is the best way to ensure you get the best possible care for your trees. If you suspect a storm has damaged trees on your property, contact Croft Tree Experts now. We can help.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
While this question seems simple, the real answer is a bit more nuanced. If a neighbor's tree is showing signs of damage, rot, or other factors which might increase its odds of falling, they are responsible for removing the tree and potentially damage which was caused to your property. If the tree had shown no signs of damage and came down because of a particularly bad storm and caused damage to your property, your homeowners insurance will provide coverage according to your policy limits. If a neighbor's healthy tree falls into your yard and doesn't cause any damage, we hate to say it but you will be on the hook for cleaning and removing the tree.
If you have a dangerous tree, you want to make sure you get it removed before anything bad happens. The most common signs of a dangerous tree are dead or detached branches, rotten wood along the trunk and cracks or splits in the trunk. Dangerous trees also often have bark abnormalities with deep cracks or holes. If you suspect your tree is dangerous and needs to be removed, contact us today, we can help.
If the tree on your property poses an immediate risk to the property surrounding it or people nearby, no distinctive tree permit is required to remove it. To be safe and avoid fines, it is a good idea to have a certified arborist assess the situation and determine the safest and best way of proceeding.
