Arborist Reports + Consulting Service Ottawa
Arborist Reports and Consultation
Before having any major work on a tree done, it is important to consult with a certified arborist and have them create a report for your tree. If you are looking to have a tree removed from your property, then an arborist report is required in Ottawa in order to secure a permit to legally remove the tree.
What is in an Arborist Report?
An arborist report will note the following points:
- Tree Species
- Tree Size
- Tree Issues, Damage, or Areas of Concern
- Cause of Issues
- Recommended Treatment
Based on our findings in this report, we will recommend our service offerings custom tailored to the needs of your tree. This involves creating a tree preservation and maintenance plan.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Pruning is one of the most important parts of encouraging healthy tree growth. Pruning recommendations can vary based on the type of tree, however, we generally recommend pruning while the tree is in its dormant state (in the winter or early spring).
There are several signs to look out for to indicate that you might have a sick or dying tree, including:
- Cracks in the trunk
- Yellowing leaves
- Stunted leaf growth
- Holes in the leaves
- Excess of lost branches
The best time of the year to plant your tree depends on the specific type of tree, your soil type, and the general climate of where you live. However, there are typically two tree planting seasons in Canada: spring (April-June) and fall (September-October).
During the first 2-3 years of it's life, your tree should be water for 15-20 minutes, twice a week. The soil around the newly planted tree should always be slightly damp.
On top of pruning your tree during it's dormant stage, we also recommend adding mulch to your trees for additional moisture retention and insulation during the cold winter months.
