Arborist Reports for Construction Sites in the GTA

It is safe to say that Toronto is one of the most beautiful cities in the country. The city has done an excellent job of maintaining green spaces by implementing comprehensive preservation and protection plans. If you are proposing a construction project, Toronto and surrounding municipality by-laws require a detailed Arborist Report prior to breaking ground. The purpose of a Construction Arborist Report is to determine if the proposed construction activities will be detrimental to tree health and advise whether trees should be trimmed, removed, or transplanted. Additionally, tree removal or alteration (i.e. trimming) permits will not be approved without the submission of the Arborist Report first.

Arborist Reports must be completed by an ISA certified professional. Local Arborist has the credentials and experience required to produce a legally accepted Construction Arborist Report in Toronto. With Local Arborist, you can rest assured that your construction project will begin on the right foot.

Good communication and responsive to our emergency call having a large tree fall on the roof. They were very timely in their work and pricing was very reasonable. They were very precise in their work and cleaned up any after math of the removal. Highly recommend!! And would use their services again.
Claire InSync
Extremely happy with the service provided to grind a large stump. Very professional. Excellent communication and the best experience I encountered in this industry. Cleanup was also done even though I was willing to handle it myself in this case. Will use them for any future tree related work. Highly recommended.I will refer this business to others because like others I have been fooled by other company high ratings only to receive horrible service, added costs and more work for me. This one is authentic. I had bad experiences and poor follow through with too many other businesses.
Alan Nanut
Allways Service was professional, friendly and efficient. Extremely happy with their service.I got a few estimates from different companies and some of them just wanted to make a quick buck and remove an entire tree. Joel listened to our needs and budget and gave a fair estimate for what he could do to make our backyard safe.On the day of the job Joel and Shawn did an amazing job planning their work, trimming the trees and making our backyard a safe space for our daughter. I really admire what they do climbing so high up in the the trees and the skills required to do so. I highly recommend them and would use them again.They are the home tree service you didn’t know you needed until you’re dodging falling branches.

We had two large stumps from a double oak that we needed to have cut further and ground down. The owner (Marian) explained the process clearly and gave a detailed quote, and a week later his stump grinder, Yora, did the job quickly and efficiently, despite running into some unexpected problems. Surprisingly, there was a large chuck of metal bar between the two stumps which dulled his chainsaw blade, in addition to a number of rocks, but these didn't stop Yora, and now we have clear ground and a pile of sawdust where the stumps were. He also spread some of he sawdust under our spruce trees. I would highly recommend this company.
Robert Scavone
I think Toronto's the best tree services company after I compare six companies. Super high service quality, take care of customers' feelings, with protection pad as far as possible to protect the lawn, after the completion of the cleaning, is very clean. The team was very professional, efficient and dedicated. Awesome team.If I have tree services in the future, I will not hesitate to invite their team.I highly recommend this company.
It was a positive experience in every way. Quality work at a reasonable price. I recommend them without reservation.
Tiit Leinveer
Marian and his crew were amazing to work with from start to finish.They arrived on time, worked flat out, cleaned up beautifully, and charged a very reasonable amount for the work they did on the huge tree in my backyard.I would highly recommend this company to anyone considering having their tree trimmed or removed.
Anita Stern
Just had my backyard and front cleaned up..cut many trees, bushes etc.Huge work was done only for 2 days.Guys did a great job, more then I ask for and for the same price it was agreed( no extra charged). Everything was professionally, super customer service, quick, clean and for the great price. Boss came twice personally just to make sure that job is getting done properly. Thanks a lot guys, nice having business with you!. Way to go.. will recommend highly. 5 *****
Erin Mills
Very professional team. did a great job. prices are reasonable.
Keith Karunanayake
We lost part of a large maple in the big May storm with half the tree on my garage and half precariously standing. Entwined in the standing portion were phone and cable wires for many families on the street.We called the day of the storm and they answered immediately with an inspection the next day. We had to wait for a couple of weeks for the City to permit us taking down the standing portion hoping it wouldn’t fall on its own, and when they did a crew arrived promptly and carefully removed the tree without touching a single wire!The whole operation was complete in three hours, and they even swept the back yard and the roofs of two garages.The service was extremely professional, timely and it was the best quote we received. I can’t say enough about the service.

Does an Arborist Report guarantee approval for removal?

No, an Arborist Report does not guarantee approval for tree removal. Arborist Reports take tree health, tree condition, and the tree’s impact on the environment all into consideration when making recommendations for construction sites. There needs to be adequate measures put into place to ensure that reasonable environmental preservation and retention is achieved.

How Long is a Construction Arborist Report Valid For?

There is no set time frame, though anything over a year is likely no longer accurate. Time truly is of the essence when it comes to construction projects.

Is a bid for tree work or tree-risk assessment the same as a construction arborist report?

No. An arborist report is a detailed report that lists the location and condition of all existing trees on a proposed construction site. It provides a comprehensive tree protection and retention plan, taking care to recommend tree alteration and removal services as required. Municipal bylaws will only accept an ISA certified Construction Arborist Report when applying for tree removal permits.
