What is Corrective Tree Trimming?

Corrective Tree Trimming is done to encourage strong, viable, and stable growth in trees of all ages. The goal is to reduce the likelihood of tree failure by establishing healthy growth patterns for the tree’s entire life cycle.

Corrective Tree Trimming involves the removal of hazardous or otherwise compromised wood to achieve such objectives. It is important to ensure that corrective pruning and tree trimming are done at the right time with the right techniques and equipment. Good pruning and trimming minimize the damage to plant tissue and avoid the development of long-lasting issues.

The best time to conduct pruning is typically during dormant months (November through March). Certified arborists, like Local Arborist, have the expertise to ensure that Toronto Corrective Tree Trimming is done with precision.

Testimonials

Local Arborist is a very professional and knowledgeable company. Marian looked at my Honey Locust tree and explained in detail how they were going to prune the tree and why they were proceeding in the manner that they did. The arborists did a thorough job and only stopped working when everything was complete, including cleaning up. This unlike another company, where the employees stopped working when the time on the watch showed them was time to stop. I highly recommend Local Arborist. Mary-Anne, Milton May 2024.
Mary-Anne Grist
Great professional service with reasonable quotes! Had a pretty big silver maple in my backyard, taking most of the space and blocking sunlight. With Marian's team's help, I got the permit around one month, and had it removed within one day, including full site cleanup, which is beyond my expectation. Highly recommended.
Lin
Marion and his team were not only reasonably priced, but super courteous and helpful. They cut an extra branch (diff tree) for me and cleaned up the whole work area without being asked. Highly recommend.
Kristen Ede
This is a most reliable, amazing company to deal with. They are prompt, efficient, and highly professional. I would give them 10 stars , if it was possible.
Sorel Park
Kudos to the Marian’s team! The team has done an amazing job in pruning my pine tree today. My pine tree is over 70 feet and is slanted with branches heavier on one side. At my first contact with Marian, he provided me with a thorough explanation on the condition of my tree and laid out the pruning options. He is very knowledgeable and genuine in the conversation. Above all, he is not pushy at all on the job. After the pruning, the tree is thinned out to lift off some weight on the slanted side. The execution is well planned and thoughtful. Initially I was worried the tree would look bare, indeed the team knows the best to balance between health and aesthetic. The team is very careful with the cuts and since a lot of the work are done on my neighbour’s property, they did a thorough clean up after work too and my neighbour is very satisfied. Thank you so much guys, my tree looks healthier now and it opens up my yard too with more sunlight shining through the pines.

Thank you Marion, your team did a great job at my residence. I would highly recommend your services to anyone.

We had an amazing experience with the Local Arborist. We came to them after another company bowed out at the last moment, after the service had already been scheduled, explaining that our case was too difficult for them to take on. The Local Arborist saved us! They were prompt and communicative, and very transparent about pricing and potential obstacles. In the end, they were able to remove the tree earlier than the previous company would have done it.Marian kept in touch with me throughout the process on the day of the removal, and advised on the future replanting process. They even trimmed an adjacent tree for us while performing the removal. It was an extremely positive experience, and we look forward to working with the Local Arborist again in the future.

FAQs

I have a tree growing towards the powerline in my yard – should I just top it?

Tree topping is never recommended as it can cause severe, irreparable damage to a tree. Corrective Tree Trimming can be done instead to safely reduce the size of the tree’s crown while maintaining the health and structural stability of a tree.

Does Corrective Tree Trimming require a permit?

Trimming and pruning trees on private property does not require a permit. If you are unsure about Toronto Tree Bylaws, make sure to contact Local Arborist. As a certified ISA company, we know the permitting requirements for Toronto and the GTA well.

Should I trim a newly planted tree?

While we typically recommend saving pruning and trimming for a couple years after a tree has been planted, sometimes Corrective Tree Trimming needs to be completed. If there are dead, dying, or diseased branches they should be removed immediately. Additionally, it is easier to correct codominant stem issues early on in a tree’s life cycle rather than waiting until it is fully established. This early intervention prevents future splitting and even complete tree failure.
