Testimonials

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.
Leila Lirazan
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

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.
Lian Zerafa

FAQs

Where should I plant a tree?

This is an important question to ask! The simple answer is that a tree should be planted where it will have adequate space to grow as well as sufficient water and nutrients. There are other factors to take into consideration as well. Do you want your tree to offer shade for afternoon gatherings in your back yard? Do you want to enhance privacy for your property? Do you have any underground or overhead utilities that could be affected by tree placement? Local Arborist will help answer all these questions (and more) to ensure successful tree planting and transplanting.

How often should I water a newly planted tree?

Ensuring that newly planted trees receive the proper amount of water is essential for healthy, steady growth. Newly planted trees should be watered about once per week, depending on the precipitation levels in your area. In general, the soil should be kept moist (but not soaking wet) for at least the first year of growth.

Should I plant native trees? How do I know what trees are native to my area?

Native trees are more likely to thrive than exotic species, as they easily adapt with the local climate and have a natural resistance to a wide variety of native pests and pathogens. Native tree species also provide habitat to native animal species. Finding trees that naturally grow in Southern Ontario is as simple as a search engine inquiry. However, Local Arborist can recommend the perfect trees to add to your property based on your unique location and needs.

When is the best time to transplant a mature tree?

Large trees that require a tree spade to move can usually be successfully transplanted from spring all the way throughout summer, so long as care is taken to ensure the trees receive adequate watering. As with any tree care service, there are a variety of factors that should be considered when planning to transplant a tree – from soil conditions all the way to available space. Local Arborist has extensive experience providing successful tree transplanting services.

When is the best time to plant a new tree?

The best time for planting new trees depends on a variety of factors, including the type of tree, the soil type where the tree will be planted, as well as the general climate of the area. Generally, tree planting should be done in the early spring (April through June) or early fall (September through October). Local Arborist will work with you to choose appropriate trees for your property and plan for the best time to plant to guarantee success.

When should I start pruning a transplanted tree?

The first 5 to 10 years of a tree’s growth is essential to the establishment of a strong root system that will support the health of the tree over its entire lifespan. Pruning should only be done to branches that are showing signs of disease or damage to promote healthy, robust growth.

Do I have to brace and stake my newly planted tree?

Unless you are transplanting a bare-root tree in a particularly windy region or on a significant slope, bracing and staking are generally not necessary. It is important for trees to develop a strong resiliency to the elements and bracing and staking can impede the process. If you do brace and stake, these supports should be moved after one year. When left too long, the tree can begin to grow into them and cause irreparable damage.

My tree looks droopy after transplanting – why?

Transplanting is an intense process for a tree, and many trees go through what is called “transplant shock”. The best way to avoid overstressing is to transplant during dormant growth seasons, ensure you pick the appropriate location (soil type, drainage, spacing) and to maintain a regular watering schedule. Don’t panic – it can take over a year for a tree to fully adjust to its new location and recover from transplant shock.

How often do I need to water newly planted trees?

It is important to ensure that a tree has sufficient water, especially during the first few formative years of growth. You should be watering around twice per week (unless there is sufficient precipitation in your region) to maintain slightly damp soil around the tree all the time. You will know if you are watering too much if water begins to pool around the tree.
