Testimonials

Excellent and knowledgeable service. Good cleanup after job was finished. Courteous and friendly.
Lorne Brown
Marian was very prompt in his response to our request for a quote and then again in scheduling the service. His team pruned a number of trees on our property and took down another. They also performed a deep fertilization of a large tree that has been struggling. Marian and his team are top notch. They arrived on time and the work was done very professionally. The property was cleaned so impeccably you would have never known they were there other than seeing the results. Would highly recommend!!
Marion Quinlan
Fast work, professionally quality and a reasonable price. What more can you ask for? Would be happy to bring them back anytime to do more work.
Steve Alotsky
All of of you guys were great. From the first contact to when the last leaf left my property. Everyone was more that perfessional. You answered every question I had and gave wonderful advice. The guys who took the tree down, went above and beyond when I asked them to cut sections of the trunk for me. It was completed unbelievably quick and you left my backyard spotless. I would recommend you to everyone.

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

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.
